I'll jump the gun and set this thread up, inevitable it'll happen soon anyway!

 

I'm assuming at least some people are, like me, excited for Kill Team. I'm probably going to make a GSC's team first but obviously Guard are my favourite so a Guard team is going to happen.

 

What are peoples initial plans? Scions would be natural fit of course. I'm not sure my Praetorians are suitable for a sneaky covert Op's force... I hope you can take a Bullgryn!

My guess is we'll get guard, vets, stormies and ratlings. They seem to be the most natural fit. Bullgryns are quite possibly too big and don't fit the theme very well.

I agree with Harrow. Vets, guard and stormies. Not sure about ratlings.... part of me wants to see a platoon commander or commissar option since someone needs to lead the kill team. I plan to use my box of last chancers for my kill team, hopefully it is possible

Leader could be a veteran or storm trooper sergeant, so far seems to be the way it's going (albeit we've only had admech and marine previews). Ratlings are small, stealthy and snipers, a perfect fit for kill team imo.

Fingers crossed for Ratlings! I have s blister of them waiting for their turn in my painting queue. (It’s not a long queue, but it doesn’t move very fast...)

So the faction focus is out and we get: guardsmen, stormtroopers and guardsmen with special weapons. A bit dissapointing and a missed opportunity for vets to shine imo.

Gotta agree with Harrowmaster. Was hoping for some revived flavour for the beloved vets. And all I could think of when they wrote "all those custom regiments you ever wanted" was: You mean Victoria miniatures or Anvil industry?

 

Cause GW, you have guard in only two flavours now.

I was a bit disappointed, hoping for the Bullgryn bodyguard but since no Terminators or Mega Armoured Nobz that’s not a surprise.

Really though, what else would we want? The guys will become Veterans in a campaign and that’s the full mix of heavy and special weapons right there.

Agreed that the 3rd party guys are going to be running their hands. Thinking I might do a 95th rifles style team.

They’ll have to wait until after my Genestealer cult and Orks with either top hats or a pirate theme. Got to love some bits of war!

Could be fun to try to recreate the Tanith Kill-Team on Gereon from Traitor General.

Alas, no Ratlings...

I'm happy to be able to field a full table of Scions more than the Vets, myself. This is the style of game that the Tempestus Fluff was meant for from my perspective: Veterans belong in the army, Tempestus belong in SpecOps.

Scions are the obvious choice for this, but I'm thinking more along the lines of a WW2 style Paratrooper or Rangers force for this. Lightly armoured troops backed up by a Heavy Bolter (Bren Gun) and a Mortar. Cue the Beret heads from my Scions being used and a suitable Bren gun found! Heavy Stubber (counting as a Heavy Bolter) would do nicely.

 

Assuming Heavy Weapons are in? They are mentioned in the article under orders. "Ensuring a heavy weapon hits", but in context they could be referring to Plasma Guns / grenade Launchers etc.

 

I'd be surprised if Heavy Weapons weren't in considering Cults have Heavy Stubbers / Mining Lasers etc and Orks have Lootas but

 

More excited for this than I though I'd be, GW sure know how to Hype a product now.

Yup. My order is already in to Victoria Miniatures for 10 Svargan Shock Soldats with Kill Teams weapon sprues and cloak accessories.

I was sad to see no Ogryns but not surprised. Same with vets and ratlings.

I'm looking forward to scores of bog standard Guardsmen laying down their lives to protect the one fool running around with a nervous tic and an overcharged plasma gun.

I've been working on a penal legion type team in preparation for kill team for a while. Hopefully some of my choices won't be redundant.

I'm thinking of doing a kill team using some genestealer cult bits mixed with scions etc.

Definitely interested in this new version of kill team.

This may be a good opportunity to put together the Foreign Legion style regiment I've always wanted to do.

 

Or WW2 USMC. I don't know, there are too many options.


You wish to see a unified Twelfth Legion, yes? -Khârn

I wonder if Guardsmen will have the option to take shotguns. I converted GSC Neophytes into Veterans with shotguns, so would be nice to be able to field them in Kill-Team (though I suppose I could field them as GSC...).

They will go out in a blaze of glory. :D

 

And I love Vic's Svargans. Everytime I am looking at them I am torn whether I like them or Anvil's version more. Victoria always strikes me as a more classic approach, a glorious callback to the regiments we have grown to love and cannot get anymore. While Anvil is trying to do their own thing. Which I applaud. For whatever reason GW seems content to leave the field aside from their most popular factions to 3rd party suppliers (now with the renegades gone).

I hope especially Victoria and Anvil will capitalize on that and provide us with even more guard (and others) goodness.
