If one receives evil from another, let one not do evil in return.
Everyone seems to playing Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team, but what do Peter and Will think after getting it on the table for the first time?
After spending quite some time painting the lovely ruined buildings that come with the Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team Starter Set, I was eager to play it. Then I spent some more time getting some old figures together, fiddling with points lists – which felt very old school – and finally coming up with two 100 point kill teams for the Tau and the Deathwatch Marines. It certainly wasn’t ‘open the box and play’! But of course this hobby isn’t just about that, or I’d be more interested in victory point gathering economic games. No, it’s about hours and hours at the painting table creating the most visually spectacular and immersive battleground possible!
So, what do we think of Kill Team? I’ll leave you to discover that in the video. I did prove, however, that I’m just as capable of the odd grumble as Will is, and rest assured, we still like to bitch about GW’s ancient ‘roll to hit, roll to wound, roll to save’ system. And it seems we’re not alone. Though I suspect we’ll have to wait a while before GW makes that particular version jump.
In the meantime, let’s focus on these two teams of military professionals meeting on an alien world. Not to shake hands, have an ale and a good sit-down and appreciate each other’s cultural achievements, nup. Let’s face it, they don’t call them ‘kill teams’ for nuttin’!
