SPEC OPS BONUS Enemy Lines Surveyed: If you are undertaking the Breakout or Infiltrate the Enemy Spec Op, then at the end of the battle, if all four Recon Points were reconnoitred by your forces during the same Turning Point, reduce by 1 the number of games required to complete that Spec Op’s Operation 1. By parrying you sacrifice that hit to remove one of the opponents hits, again with your critical rolls being able to remove their criticals. That said, once past the annoyances, they go together well and look great as I hope my quick snaps illustrate faithfully.Each time an operative performs this action on a terrain feature, until the end of the Turning Point, that Recon Point is said to have been reconnoitred by your forces. It’s also easy to see how this might tie into future 40k campaign settings (where factions are defined in advance), and how it might be used to re-introduce older teams such as the Gellarpox Infected or Elucidian Starstriders (at least, we hope to see them show up again somewhere – those are beautiful models! I hope that going forward each army gets a kit that is designed around Kill Team, as both of these sets are fantastic in how they give you not only a cool unit for 40k, but an entire kill team of different looking operatives for your games of Kill Team! MISSION RULES Supplies Incoming: At the start of the Strategy phase of the third Turning Point, the players randomly determine one of the objective markers on the battlefield and remove it from the battlefield. Alas, mere moments before you strike, the prey has realised their danger, and unless you attack now all hope of a swift victory will be lost.

If the Defender scores 3 or more VPs from Security Tac Ops during this battle, they gain 1 additional Requisition point.

With time being a precious resource, there’s loads of games to play and not nearly enough time – but with only a handful of models on each side and a small gaming footprint I can see Kill Team being a regular addition to our gaming rotation. DECOY [1EP]For each operative in your kill team that is equipped with a decoy, you can set up one additional Concealed Deployment marker when you set up your forces. Finally we come to Spec Ops, which are like mini narrative arcs for your Kill Team to work through as you run them in a campaign.An operative can perform this action while on the vantage points of one of the terrain features labelled Recon Points A-D (see map), provided no enemy operative is on the vantage point of the same terrain feature. An operative can perform this action while within of an objective marker they control that is within the enemy’s drop zone and has not already been sapped. Kommandos can do similar, and my favorite of these is Thievin’ Git, which gives your operative a free piece of Equipment before the battle from your stash. As with most other GW games, Kill Team keeps the “3 ways to play” mantra allowing different play styles. If a friendly operative controls the Relic objective marker at the end of the battle, you score an additional 2VPs (score 3VPs instead if a friendly operative is carrying the Relic objective marker).

Again while we get a list in the book I imagine we will see more warzone or army specific ones added in the future. Finally after deployment there is the scouting phase where essentially you pick from Fortify, Infiltrate and Recon each having a different benefit but each also beating a different choice as in rock, paper scissors. Between these two and the Medic Veteran , who can heal 2d3 wounds per turn and keep a friendly model from being incapacitated once per game, you can put up a solid line to protect your more vulnerable ranged damage dealers.This is a really cool system that represents the back and forth in a close combat fight that would be too cumbersome to represent in a large scale game, but works brilliantly here! This kit is comprised of 55 plastic components with which you can build: 4x Ramshackle Walls 3x Ramshackle Barricades 3x Scrap Piles 1x Oil Pump The set also includes a double-sided folding gaming board measuring 30" x 22. If the Attacker scores 3 or more VPs from Infiltration Tac Ops during this battle, they gain 1 additional Requisition point.

Rather than giving us full rules for an Octarius campaign, the book instead presents us with Spec Ops and campaign rules for the book’s two factions. Next up is the Kill Team sprue – this contains movement gauges marked with symbols for ease of play during your games of Kill Team – don’t worry, this isnt some bespoke measuring system however – each of the facings also relate to inches with pips along the edge of each template marking these out.

Of course, fighting in melee is risky, and Kommandos have an incredible Tactical Ploy to keep them around longer: Just A Scratch costs 1CP and lets any of your operatives ignore damage from a single attack dice. The detail on the models is very good and I'm looking forward to putting paint on everything at some point. The Kill Teams in the Rogue Trader set from the last edition weren’t particularly inspiring from a rules perspective, but these two couldn’t be any more different. Battles then follow the same core rules as Matched Play missions – which I do feel it makes Spec Ops the best way of playing Kill Team as not only do you get the full core game experience, but you also get the fun narrative content on top of this!
