Games Workshop Looks at Bringing Models Between 40k and Kill Team

With Kill Team and 40k being so connected, players may want to bring a favorite squad from one game into the other. Well, Games Workshop is giving you ways to do that and we get a look at how in this article.

From the article:

One of the best things about the new edition of Kill Team is the expanded suite of Spec Ops narrative play rules that allows you to build up the story of your elite operatives through in-game events. By having each model become a fleshed-out character in their own right, your kill team takes on a unique identity that’s wholly yours and makes every twist and turn on the battlefield meaningful.

Players of Warhammer 40,000 will no doubt find this similar to their own Crusade games, and now it’s easier than you might think to have the stories of your armies and kill teams intertwine.

Thanks to the Kill Team Compendium and the new streamlined list-building system, it’s easier than ever to bring squads from your Warhammer 40,000 army into games of Kill Team. Many full-fledged kill teams can be formed from units commonly found in Crusade armies, such as Intercessors, Plague Marines, and Fire Warriors.

Did a fresh new unit distinguish themselves in their first battle? Take them from Warhammer 40,000 into Kill Team by adding them to your narrative dataslate, providing a ready-made backstory that follows them into their Spec Ops missions.
