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
From the website:
Rogue Trader Elucia Vhane and her Starstriders seek to colonise new worlds at the behest of the Imperium’s mightiest leader. Their quest aims to travel far beyond the Chaos contamination that threatens to engulf Mankind. Yet nowhere is safe, for the twisted tendrils of corruption have followed them even beyond the borders of the Imperium. Can the Rogue Trader and the deadly specialists she has forged into a team defeat the hulking Vulgar Thrice-Cursed and his virulent band of mutated followers? Can the cutting edge of human skill match the loathsome gifts granted by the Dark Gods?
Kill Team: Rogue Trader is an expansion for Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team, the fast-paced tabletop miniatures game pitting small bands of elite specialists against each other in vicious skirmish combat. This set adds 2 new factions, new environments, new missions and a host of new rules, allowing you to recreate desperate battles beyond the borders of known space. Inside the packed box:
Kill Team: Rogue Trader
A 56-page book filled with background and rules for the Elucidian Starstriders and Gellerpox Infected – as well as new advanced rules for all Kill Team factions – the Rogue Trader book contains:
- To Roam the Void: an introduction to the Rogue Traders – warriors, explorers, leaders and merchants who bear a sacred Warrant of Trade, allowing them to engage in both commerce and war beyond the boundaries of the Imperium;
- A Growing Sickness: the insidious threat of Chaos grows stronger with every passing moment – this section explains the dangers of mutation, and the fear it instills in the Imperium;
- To Reach For Paradise: a description of the summons sent by Roboute Guilliman himself to hundreds of Rogue Traders, asking for their help as equals in discovering new, untainted worlds on which to dwell. This focuses on Elucia Vhane and her crew aboard the New Dawn, their discovery of uncorrupted worlds for the Imperium to settle, and their unwitting introduction of the Gellerpox Virus to these worlds;
- An annotated map of the Truehawk – Elucia Vhane’s shuttle – and the Ministorum Shrine, site of the terrible final battle against Vulgar Thrice-Cursed; these maps cover the included gameboard.
