Apologies if this has been posted already (or in the Tournament forum), but it's the first I'd heard about it.

This is a UK event it seems, but the download links have updated rules for KT in 6th along with some missions, so I thought people might be interested.

Enjoy!

From a quick glance it would seem they've changed it so the Kill Team isn't made up of a group of individuals, but rather full squads. Also you can't arm the models how you choose, its just the unit upgrades that are normally available. The rules are just for a tournement and if anything are the dumbed down version of the 4th ed Kill Team (if that). The special rules are nice, but it would have been better if they had been implimented along side rules that allowed for more creative unit choices. But that would probably allow for a lot of abuse and cause tournement organisers more hassle than they could be bothered with, thus the simplisticness of the rules.=P

So it's kind've an old amalgamation of Kill-Team and 40k in 40 Minutes, if anyone remembers that.

This set is more or less the same as what was in the 5th Ed. Battle Missions book, only changes are the list of special rules, the "levelling" system for the squad leader, and (I think) not being able to use Heavy Support. Each model still operates independently as its own unit, you just have to purchase them in sizes of legal units.

Those rules are actually found in the mission rules themselves, because this was pulled almost completely from the Kill Team mission in the Battle Missions book (as they explain).

So this is really just a slight cleaning up of the rules for 6th edition (mainly just the FAQ) from the 5th edition Battle Mission rules.

The only new thing compared to Battle Missions is the Leader level up chart. A year ago or so, before I started Infinity, I'd be all over this. Now, not so much.

Still a nice try, and the rules are for free. That's worthr emembering.

Oh, and this:

Q. Regarding the Necron Deathmarks ability to 'mark' units to wound on a 2+. Would the
Deathmarks be able to wound a whole unit of space marines even though they are not
together, or do they mark individual models.
A. When the Deathmarks deploy, they are each individual units so they each “mark” a enemy
unit (in the case of this mission, a single enemy model). For the remainder of the game,
each enemy unit marked in this way is wounded on a 2+ by all Deathmarks in your Kill team.

Necrons still rule the day. You basically wound half of the enemy force on a 2+.

I love Kill Teams, though I do miss the KT rules from 4ED a bit. It gives me an excuse to go all out on modeling and perhaps play an army I normally wouldn't without dumping a bucket of cash into it.

I dig how in a setting where giant, muscled fungus men ride Mad Max cars and use their own teeth as currency, the concept of little engineering dudes with beards was considered a step too far down the aisle of silliness.

Why play Kill teams, when you can play Killzone instead? Much more like the 4th edition kill teams with individuals instead of squads.

They knocked the individuals on the head when they brought out battlemissions which took up the squad and wargear options you're on about

We tried this out today, and yes, Deathmarks are ridiculous in this format.

Given that they never get re animation protocols (units of one are completely wiped out when they die) and cannot deep strike I highly doubt a death mark kill team is unbeatable.

It was basically the rules for Kill Teams out of the back of the Battle Missions book, which they updated for 6th, and held a Kill Team event at Warhammer World, the rules were put up for free, because tickets for the events cost about £25 (don't quote) I think, thats only serving from memory though, they had a poster for it in the toilets when I was in their playing an Apoc game.
