Whilst this is the KT thread, just a reminder that the Rogue Trader rules are for 40K and not kill team.

Nobody is saying that those book rules are for KT. It's known that they're for 40k.

GW did, apparently, make a comment at GenCon that there are rules for Inquisition, Gellerpox, and Rogue Trader KTs coming though.

And frankly, it is a travesty that those rules were not available from the get go. The Rogue Trader box was explicitly for Kill Team, and it is gakky move to make its contents unusable for the game with the new edition for such a long time.

Possibly Kill team annual with Inquisition, Gellerpox, Rogue Trader, WD articles and the four factions from the two boxed sets.

I can kind of understand why they weren't in the KT Compendium(not like you can buy the Starstriders or Gellerpox right now), but I agree for the most part.

Oh and I really hope these rules herald the return of the Rogue Trader minis. It is weird and annoying that they disappeared so soon. And yeah, I guess same for the Gellerpox in case someone cares about them.

I'd like to see the models made available again, too, but I can never push aside the thought that they'd be as stupidly priced as the other menagerie sprues from recent boxed sets. Indomitus, Cursed City, and so on. I'd just bite myself for not getting Rogue Trader when it was still available as by those standards it would look like a steal.

If you didn't wan to make people generic 'medic' and the like my solution for those boxes 9and I guess a dream release) would be...


I suppose you would split them into 5? fireteams and pick 2.
CSM - Leader (Mallus) and 2 black legion bodyguards
Traitor Guardsmen - 7 guys as per box
Cultists - 7 guys as per box
Scum - 4 guys chosen from Beastmen, Nega Voltists, up to 2 rogue Pyskers

If you don't pick the CSM can upgrade one Guardsman to be a commissar, or one cultist to be a firebrand.

The heroes aren't enough to take a full 20 man roster so if you did them would have to think up some kind of retainer. Or could combine with the Starstriders into some kind of set up. I reckon one fireteam of Voidsmen then a choice of 3? fireteams made up of the heroes grouped into three power levels for a team of 2, 3 or 4 members.

So they would be stating and grouping up
• Knosso Prond
• Larsen van der Grauss
• Sanistasia Minst
• Elucia Vhane
• Gotfret de Montbard
• Pious Vorne
• Rein and Raus
• UR-025
• X-101
• Amallyn Shadowguide
• Aradia Madellan
• Daedalosus
• Dahyak Grekh
• Espern Locarno
• Janus Draik
• Neyam Shai Murad
• Taddeus the Purifier
Giving you a roster of 20 guys (the 6 voidsmen and choices from the above 18 people)

Then I guess do a special made to order release window for the models.

The Gellarpox are another too small faction, so either group in with deathguard as another 1 or 2 fireteam choices or add them to the blackstone guys.

Just saw some rumour on Reddit that the next KT box will be Eldar vs Chaos, anyone else heard anything about this?

We know from Rumour Engine that some new eldar bits are coming that look like straight out of a KT specialist sprue..

Some of the Blackstone Fortress figure set releases have been decently priced, though? Like the Cultists of the Abyss and the Servants of the Abyss boxes.

Yeah, I didn't pay attention to the servants but bought a box of the cultists. Nice models at a surprisingly decent price. It's just not something I'd expect GW to repeat, considering they came before all those examples I named. Though I guess it depends on the format in which they'd be released. If the Rogue Trader factions were brought back for Kill Team with their own unit box, they might actually be similar in price to whatever GW is going to ask for the Death Korps box. As individual, direct only sprues, possibly tying in with a 40k Rogue Trader release that makes the characters stand out as actual character rather than just more operatives, I'd be a lot less hopeful about their price.

As for Eldar versus Chaos, would be neat. I don't recall if we had any credible rumors past Sisters and Tau, but I thought there was talk about Eldar Rangers for Kill Team before?

Next issue from White Dwarf:

Genestealer cult Kill teams.

I hope it's for KT and not for 40k


Also:


there was a rumor about catachan vs tyranids.. maybe it's the following? and not eldar vs chaos as people say (since a box for 40k is sure)

the reliable rumors indicated that after GSC/Custodes would be Tau, and after Tau would be large releases for Eldar and CSM. Nids and IG were stated to be much farther out

Well at least the compendium can truly go in the bin once there's a list for Genestealer Cults that can actually take Genestealers.

So we're clear, that Catachan artwork is for the novel "Catachan Devils" coming out in paperback.

Worth mentioning that there really isn't anything stopping another "Warzone Launch Box" that could include a new Catachan Jungle Fighter Squad and new Lictors in plastic even with those highly accurate rumors.

I would love to see Catachans vs Kroot on a Death World.

I hope they make a mini for the power fist guy as he looks pretty bad ass. Can't help but wonder if the female is inspired by Alie' Vasquez.

It's disappointing. Old former factions in Warcry have really, really good stats and fluffy abilities.

GSC have been really strong in tournaments, will be interesting to see what their SpecOps team will look like.

New Catachan minis, who wouldn't love some! The old ones are old enough to raise kids and get divorced by now..

The setting for the next Kill Team expansion might be Khai-Zhan.

"Kill Team: Khai-Zhan. Return to Vogen and choose Faith or Loyalty as the Imperial Forces fall upon each other."


Posted to the Games Workshop - Oslo facebook page today.

EDIT:
I asked the store and it turns out it's just a one off event specific to this store. Sorry if this caused any confusion. Leaving the comment in the thread for contextual reasons.

It looks like it's something from the store, and not the next kill zone, right?

Could always be just a store campaign. Although the wording seems more like that of an official expansion. Besides it does line up with the official Kill Team Roadmap which shows us geting a new set in early next year. Might be a way for the store to advertise it.

That said; I wouldnt take it as a confirmation. I just think that it is fun to speculate.

Yeah pretty sure thats just a store campaign, IIRC the next Kill Team box is supposed to have Aeldari rather than imperial vs chaos?

The White Dwarf GSC KillTeam rules have leaked prematurely, no doubt some WD subscriber got their copy early.

Looks interesting, can take Locus, Sanctus sniper, Sanctus talon and Kellermorph (which all count as two operatives per model). Climbing equipment! Sadly, no purestrains nor Aberrants.

Too bad the upcoming combat patrol box doesn't seem to be a very good fit for such a team.

Two Genestealer Cult Kill Teams and neither of them can take Genestealers, while Tyranids can.

It's almost embarrassing at this point how poor the selection rules are.

It's almost as embarrassing as people not recognizing that maybe, just maybe the focus in Genestealer Cults isn't on the first word but the second one.
