Oh mamma Kill Team is one nice looking game. I thought my first post on this blog would be about getting back into the swing of things after a long absence from the hobby but the Warhammer Community team just had to go and drop an info bomb on the upcoming 40K skirmish game, Kill Team!
The short version of all this news is that this is the new stepping stone game to help get eager hobby gamers into 40K. Kill Team is serving a similar function to Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire acting as an entry point to Age of Sigmar setting. The ruleset is even being crafted by the Shadespire team. Kill Team promises tight skirmish based gameplay with small squads of 40K models battling it out across small-ish terrain packed game boards. It also naturally supports open, narrative and matched play with Games Workshop already committing to offering organised play. So yeah, this is the new big game from GW and they mean business.
