Kill Team Rules Update 1.2!

Lots of cool additions in v1.2 of the Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team ruleset, thanks in part to the feedback we have received from our readers and over at the Dakka Dakka forum. Lots of tweaks, and a redesigned Kill Team Mission:

Download the updated Kill Team rules here!

Over the last month I've added a few more Kill Team army lists to the blog page as well, including Orks and Tyranids. My next stop is Dark Eldar, but I'm struggling on how to handle pain tokens and combat drugs. If anyone has any ideas please drop me an email or leave a comment!

Also, if anyone has any photos or battle reports of their Kill Team games they would like the share, I'd be more than happy to post them up on this blog!

Other Stuff
I've been off to Warhammer World this morning to have a look at the Throne of Skulls (I like shiny armies) and take some photos of my now COMPLETE Blood Angels army. Yup, that's 3000 points of DONE. I've used a borrowed SLR for the job, so you'll have to wait until I get the transfer cable (its a Sony specific one...) before I can upload the pics.

Expect posts to be more well-rounded in the future now I have a new, more chaotic, project starting. I can finally put Blood Angels aside and do some modelling and list building articles.

Blood Angels Vindicator and Land Speeder Painted

Blood Angels Vindicator and Land Speeder
Another couple of vehicles done! A good session this coming weekend and we'll have a fully painted army. Just in time for the Chaos codex to come out and me to start another one!

Here's a closer look at the Siege Shield:

Also, a quick question for readers. I found this in the new FAQ:

Page 22 ¬ Charge Move, Charging Through Difficult Terrain. Change the first sentence to read “If, when charging, one or more models have to move through difficult terrain in order to reach the enemy by the shortest possible route, the unit must make a Difficult Terrain test (see page 90).”

Er, why?... This is quite a big rule change. Why did the FAQ dramatically change the way charging into cover works? I thought 3d6 drop the highest was fair, 2d6 pick the highest just downright nerfed assault armies! Any ideas?

Blood Angels Assault Squad Tanis Painted

Another squad in the bag.

Blood Angels Assault Squad Tanis
1 more squad and 3 vehicles left until completion! Can't wait to get a group shot of my entire army now.

Now I'm off to play some DoW Retribution :-D, no idea why I suddenly have the urge to play that game again.
