While I toil away at these Plaguebearers, I've found myself extremely motivated by the reveal of Kill Team. I've been mulling over some different Team ideas and I'd like some input from all of you. I'm having a difficult time deciding between the following:
- Blood Axe Ork Kommando Kill Team... they would tie in with my Blood Axe army. Probably wearing Greatcoats and wool caps, but I'm not sure what else I would do. I think these would be both the easiest and the most difficult to pull off, if only for the sake of sticking with the regimented and disciplined theme of my Orks while also making them individuals.
- Beastman Trench Raider Kill Team... most likely using the Astra Militarum codex, and most likely Catachan. Unfortunately, Beastmen have no actual rules and unfortunately I cannot port over the 30K Militia rules. I could utilize some counts-as with these, like Ogyrn - Bullgor (but Christ as those ugly minis), River Tolls or third party. Or I make them Loyalist...ish, and make everything else sanctioned races only.
-Chaos Cultist Kill Team... with these I'd either do a Nurgle Cult to tie into my Death Guard or I'd go unaligned, more like Mercs.
-Finally... a Highlander Astra Militarum Team, as a tribute to my great grand-da who served in the 16th INF Scottish Canadian in WWI. Like the Beastmen I'd want an Orgyn, but I'm a bit put-off by the idea of sculpting a kilt, let alone attempting to paint tartan for any of them. If anything I'd make their kilts olive drab.
For me it's more a toss up between the Beastmen and Highlanders, although the others have plenty to build off of.
Edit: Oh yeah, one last one and it's probably over played... but Alpha Legion.
