"WHAT IS KILL TEAM?
Kill Team is the game of skirmish combat in the 41st Millennium.

Set in the universe and using the same miniatures ranges as Warhammer 40,000 but with a different rules set, it allows you to play a game of fast-paced tactical skirmish combat in games of 2-4 players, in less time and with a fraction of the models you’d need to play a full game of Warhammer 40,000.

WHAT WARHAMMER 40,000 BOOKS WILL I NEED TO PLAY?
None of them! The rules for the 16 factions in Kill Team are found in the core manual for Kill Team, available in the Kill Team box or as a separate book. Further expansions will provide extra rules for existing factions, and may even add whole new ones!

WHAT’S A KILLZONE?
Killzones are the arenas in which kill teams do battle. From lush (and deadly) jungles tomaze-like manufactorums, each offers unique opportunities and dangers to those who battle over them.

Killzones will be available in special expansions for Kill Team in boxed sets that feature terrain, card tiles to play on and unique tactics and rules for that Killzone. At launch, you’ll be able to choose between the Sector Mechanicus expansion and the Sector Imperialis found in the main Kill Team set.

WHAT MODELS CAN I HAVE IN MY KILL TEAM?
Every Kill Team faction has 1-6 specially chosen datasheets you can choose units from, designed to represent the kind of forces that would be sent on the guerilla operations for which kill teams are famous. We’ve picked plastic kits which can be converted and kitbashed for these, plus some units – like Craftworlds Rangers and Kommandos – that it’d be weird to leave out.

We’ll be looking at just what each kill team can use in our Kill Team Focus series over the next few weeks to help you prepare. While you can use your existing collection for the game, we reckon many of you will want to build a brand new team for the game to make the most of the deep list customisation that the game allows.

WHAT’S KILL TEAM: ROGUE TRADER?
Wouldn’t you like to know! If we had to hazard a guess, we’d say it was some kind of expansion to Kill Team that looked at Rogue Traders. If we tell you anything more, the Inquisition will have to start executing writers, which tends to lead to delays.

Far be it from us to suggest that Kill Team: Rogue Trader is just one example of how this new game allows us to explore heretofore unrealised corners of the the 41st Millennium, not to mention the new factions and models available after launch...

IS KILL TEAM RELATED TO NECROMUNDA?
Kill Team and Necromunda look at very different corners of the 41st Millennium. Where Necromunda is about gangs of scavengers and criminals fighting vicious turf wars across linked campaigns, Kill Team is about elite, hand-picked units fighting guerrilla warfare deep behind enemy lines – and thus, both games have very different rulesets."
