Kill Team has a had plenty of expansions with their very own distinctive Kill Teams. Now we form of need whole armies primarily based on a couple of of them.
Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team is a good skirmish sport on it’s personal. It’s an ideal sport you’ll be able to play as little bit of a facet sport as a result of anybody with a 40k military can throw collectively a Kill Team and begin enjoying. Seriously, simply seize the Kill Team Annual when that comes out and read-up on the core guidelines.
Anyhow, that additionally bought us enthusiastic about how there are a ton of actually cool and distinctive Kill Teams that have been form of “one shot” forces. That additionally bought us pondering “man, it would be really cool to see these lines get expanded on and turned into full armies in the future.” Here’s a couple of examples of what we have been .
The Kroot have a brand new Kill Team coming and they’re trying superior. Look, we all know they are often taken in a T’au military. That’s high quality. But we’re hoping that perhaps at some point the Kroot Mercs can get their very own guide with their very own guidelines. Probably received’t occur as a result of they’re part of the T’au military and that might be somewhat odd lore-wise in the event that they all of the sudden broke off. But perhaps the T’au want extra allies as faction. It’s for the Greater Good!
Seriously. GW is simply teasing us at this level. Not solely did we now have the flamboyant new ones from Kill Team. however we additionally had related fashions from Blackstone Fortress:
C’mon…I imply, critically GW — C’MON! Give the individuals what they need! And they need extra Heretics within the type of a full on Traitor Guard military. And talking of Guard…
Death Korps of Krieg
I do know, technically, “the Death Korps are already part of the Astra Militarum and blah, blah, blah… ” Look, we bought 1 squad of badass Krieg Models and we would like extra of them. They had a bunch of Forge World releases that have been resin and that’s high quality. But we’d like to see this Astra Militarum Sub-faction get a full on rework and add them to the road. We need them to get the total Cadian remedy is what we’re saying. And perhaps a car improve pack to make their autos extra Krieg-like.

I don’t understand how this military would work or if it might be completely different sufficient from an Astra Militarum military to warrant a full scale launch. But we’re simply spitballing right here — It could be nice to see extra fashions from this identical aesthetic if nothing else. Personally, I believe a Rogue Trader military would look lots like a Guard Army however with some very particular HQ and Elite choices. Maybe they might even borrow some items from different varied Imperial factions. You’d should tone down the rule-crossovers however they might be the glue that permits you to kind some actually cool alliances in a single military.
Now that I write that, I’m enthusiastic about how busted that might be. An Imperial military the place you simply cherry decide items from no matter Imperial faction. Yeah…perhaps don’t go that route. Still, extra Rogue Traders could be cool.
More Gellerpox Infected
They are followers of Nurgle so you can make the argument that they’re already a part of that military. But they’re additionally not fairly a full Nurgle factor. Plus, it’s form of a cool batch of items. We simply bought the Chaos Mutants with the brand new Chaos Space Marine guide, too. That stated, the Gellerpox nonetheless seems like an orphan Kill Team. It’s bought bits of all these different factions however it’s probably not a part of any of them. I don’t understand how that will work with extra of them as a military — I simply know the fashions are loopy and I’d wish to see extra from them.
Do you’ve gotten any particular Kill Teams you want have been developed right into a full military?
