I've really enjoyed playing Kill Team more recently, and going back to playing 40K has me a little bummed out about the current ruleset. There's a lot of things that play really well in Killteam - alternating initiative, alternating actions, really good terrain, command points generated throughout the game. I know 9th edition will bring command point generation more in line with Kill Team, and improvements to terrain in some regard, but it made me wonder if you could play 40k using Kill Team turn rules.
Essentially, you would refer to codices for points and unit rules, but movement, turn order, general game rules would be taken from kill team. Obviously there would be some grey areas, but it made me want to try a 1000 point 40k battle using that ruleset. Any thoughts? Has anyone tried scaling the kill team rules to squad based battle instead of individuals? Would the clarity and efficiency of the rules be totally counteracted by using squads instead of models?
Would love to hear peoples thoughts on if a 500-1000pts battle in this format would work, if it wouldn't, and why.
