Its a smaller scale game that allows you to make one squad from an army comprise of various components of that army. (Tactical Squads can have a Scout and such)

It just lets you make one super elite squad (under 160 points) to rape a bunch of enemies. Its very objective based.

The rules are on the UK GW site.

The rules are also in the old 4th edition main book (the big hardcover, not the booklet from the starter set)

As far as I know there is no online article with kill team rules on the GW site. If anyone can find them, please post a link. Closest I ever found were the Deathwatch Kill Team rules, which is not at all the same thing.

I think I may have possible win here. For anyone interested :

http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/pdf/kill-team-part1.pdf
http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/pdf/kill-team-part2.pdf

If these are the incorrect rules It would be great to know since these are what I have been playing with.

Awesome find, +rep!

Upon closer inspection though, these Chapter Approved rules *are* a bit different than the 4th edition ones.

The biggest difference comes in how the teams are constructed.

All kill teams are limited to 160 points and there a number of 'mutable' and 'immutable' laws regarding what units you can and cannot take, etc.
Immutable laws cannot be broken (except in special one-off games), mutable laws can be, but give the other player bonus points to upgrade their goons or bosses.

So while the rules above will let you play a type of kill team game (a bit simplified version) it's not the same as the current (4th edition) rules. If you make a kill team witht hose rules you should tag it as such, like 'Tau Kill Team (CA)' int he title so people know you;re not using the 4th edition KT rules.

What are the currently (More widespread) KT rules? (Just interjecting here. I would love to make a badass kill team.)

Unfortunately, unless someone can dig up a link from games Workshop, we can't give you the full rules, but if you can find an old 4th edition copy of the main book (they;re bound to be cheap with the new edition out) you can find it in there. Get the hardback thoguh, it;s not in the boxed set booklet

That sucks. But I believe my friend might have an old copy. See, I'd like to play a Kill Team Game. Play a lot actually, considering all my Marines have been customized with their own looks and each have their own names. Haha.
