Kill Team is a fantastic standalone game from Games Workshop, set within the Warhammer 40,000 Universe. Kill Team is a fast-paced, action-packed tabletop game that puts two deadly kill teams against one another in a ferocious battle to the death. Games can be as swift as a 40-minute skirmish or can be extended into a full-scale campaign. Every game you play develops your squad, improving their abilities and expanding their skill trees, even the lowliest trooper can grow in power, skill and experience to evolve into a battle-hardened warrior.
The Kill Team rules can be compared to those from Warhammer 40,000 as both are geared towards fighting in the 41st Millennium, both deal with a lot of the same core systems and general principles. Warhammer 40,000 is on a larger scale than Kill Team and concentrates on the grand plans, sweeping manoeuvres and the clash of massive armies, whereas Kill Team is all about moment-to-moment action.
Kill Team is Fast
A game of Kill Team lasts about half an hour to 40 minutes, making it easy to squeeze into a lunch break or get several games in across an evening.
Kill Team is Reactive
In Kill Team, alternating activations for shooting and combat mean that you’ll have to be on-the-ball in every moment of the game – and you won’t have long to wait until it’s your turn, either.
Kill Team is Tactical
There’s loads of tactical depth in Kill Team. With only a handful of models, every casualty hurts and every decision matters.
Amid the darkness of the far future, the Tau Empire is a relatively recently emerged threat. A race of blue-skinned humanoids who seek to join all of the great races of the galaxy under their own command in the name of the greater good. Shrouded by Warp Storms for millennia they underwent an extremely rapid technological evolution and are now one of the most advanced and devastating races in the Universe.
The T’au Empire is a master of long-range combat and often are seen to avoid close-quarters fighting when possible. Employing the use of powerful Battlesuits and specialised weapon systems such as the Rail Cannon during battle, they are capable of punching holes clean through enemy armour with extreme velocity projectiles from great distances. In cases where close combat is unavoidable, the Tau will deploy its auxiliaries forces, such as Kroot warriors, to handle the situation while they offer fire support.
Throughout their history, the T’au has conquered and colonized many great star systems, and their progress shows no sign of slowing. Strike forces have been seen throughout the galaxy in multiple sectors, with reconnaissance drones leading the way before the first salvo truly announces their arrival.
