Kill Team


Some new box sets are availble to pre-order from Games Workshop over in their store for some of the spin-off games from 40k. There's a new Kill Team starter that pits the Space Marines against the Tau. Then, you have a new Blackstone Fortress expansion called Escalation. It, as one would expect, continues on the story of the game as you try and take back the weapon systems in the fortress.

Games Workshop is expanding Kill Team, their skirmish version of 40k. The new Kill Team: Elites book is available to order now. There's also a trio of new crews that you can get your hands on, including a pair of Chaos ones and an Ork one, for those that might be interested.

Getting along and playing for a common goal is all well and good, but sometimes you just wanna smash heads and take out your opponent's forces with extreme prejudice. Well, that's where Kill Team: Arena comes in. It's the new expansion available to order from Games Workshop. Players can play in head-to-head games and it even has rules for tournaments and  team play.

Troops on the field will only be so good without a commander. You need someone who is able to read the battlefield, know where to go, what to do, and how to engage the enemy. Games Workshop is bringing commanders to Kill Team with their approriately titled Commanders expansion set, available to pre-order now. Along with that, they have quite a few commander packs you can order along with it.

Games Workshop is filling up their pre-order page over on their website. They've got some new 40k, some new Kill Team, some new Warhammer Underworlds, and even more up for order. Arguably the biggest things include the new 40k 2-player starter set, Wake the Dead, and the new Kill Team crews which include Tau and Necrons.

Rogue Trader. That name takes us old grognards back. I personally never played that edition of 40k, but I've certainly heard a lot about it. And the name has lived on through Games Workshop's life. Now, it's a new set for Kill Team, and you can order it from their webshop. There's also some new sets of dice. #NoSuchThingAsTooManyDice

When it comes to Games Workshop, everyone wants to know what they're working on. What's the next focus for 40k and Age of Sigmar? What sort of secondary games are they fiddling with? When can we get more Orks? We get an answer to those questions in this preview.

This Year of New Editions is coming in all forms. In this case, a beloved book and film series is getting a reboot. Games Workshop is taking pre-orders for the new rulebook for their Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game, as well as Armies book. Plus, there's seemingly a hundred miniatures bundles to go with it. Also dice, because you can't have too many dice. For those that want something more sci-fi, there's a trio of Kill Team sets you can pick up as well.

Games Workshop is bulking up both of their latest games with this week's pre-releases. For those that have picked up Kill Team, there's some new starter sets, including Tyranids and the Imperium (plus loads and loads of new dice. #NoSuchThingAsTooManyDice). For those that are going along with the new edition of Age of Sigmar, both the Stormcast Eternals and the undead are getting new releases, including a new version of the legendary Black Coach.
A lot of this could theoretically go in today's Terrain Corner as well, but we'll get to that. Games Workshop has started taking orders for Kill Team. What is Kill Team? Basically skirmish-sized 40k. Don't want to get your huge-ass army out every time? Grab an elite core of minis and go at it in the tight spaces on the table. There's a starter box, main rulebook, some other starter sets. Just lots of stuff to get you going.
Saturdaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! Woo!
My favorite day of the week, as I can just sit back, relax, and do some gaming.
Nevermind that this week I'm vacuuming, dusting, and cleaning countertops in the den. That's important, too.
So, while I try and figure out just how much dust a single lamp can acquire, let's get you those reviews you so desperately desire.

Today we have: Atlantis: Island of the Gods, Build It with Bryan, Sea of Plunder, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Tiny Epic Quest, Way of the Panda, Dogmight Games Sentinel Board Game Box, Anatomy Fluxx, Head of Mousehold, Robinson Crusoe 2nd Edition, Who Should We Eat?, Among the Stars iOS, Thunderstone Quest, Ticket to Ride: New York, Die Quacksalber von Quedlinburg, Junk Orbit, Nine Worlds, Nimble, For King & Parliament, and Warhammer 40k: Kill Team.

One Page Rules continues updating their rules sets with the new version 2.0 of Kill Team. Faster and more streamlined, this new version is a great way to get someone new involved in the hobby using just a handful of minis.
