Default Kill Teams - What is a kill team?

What is a kill team? Is it an Army List used in Patrol Battles?

There are two possible answers to that question. There was a subgame called "kill team" that was in the 4th Ed rulebook that allowed you to create a small comando squad that was on a mission targeting something important. The opposition was a bunch of mooks. There were some unbreakable rules and some breakable ones. Breaking the breakable ones gave the mooks more cool things. They also had rules for extra gear (silencers, etc.). It's a lot like a comando scene from an action movie. The rules used to be up as a PDF over at GW's website, but they took them down when the new variant came out, IIRC.

In the new Battle Missions there is ALSO a sub-game called "kill team". It's basically a cross between a combat patrol and one of the 4th ed kill team missions. You take 200 points worth of dudes, every model is considered a sepperant unit and then you get 3 USRs to distribute as you see fit. The other side does them same thing, and you battle it out.

Read the rest of the comments to see how people feel about the second one. I'm a big fan of the first one and I don't want my bias on the second one to effect you. There are definately people who feel both ways, I'd check out what they have to say.

It's bassicly a 40k variant for small, tactical battles where precision is crucial. If you know games like rainbow6 you know what a well equiped squad can do against a larger force. Only here, there are two specialised forces.

Cyklown has already mentioned some important details.


Please have a look at my space marines.

i'm also lookin for the pdf for kill team. I've played it once before but i don't remember the rules. There's a game mode for Modern warfare 2 where there's about 6 people per team and you have to sneak around and destroy a weapons cache or whatever its kinda like that

Kill team is in Battle Missions book so it's not free but a better version made by fans is here.

The downloads at the Galaxy in Flames blog have been taken down because they are doing a rule update but until they do there's this.

Do you use the normal unit composition rules?

Really need to know, playing my first match next week versus IG.

When I die, I want to go peacefully, in my sleep, like my Grandfather did.

Not screaming in pain like the passengers in his car.
