You guys should have got on the KT Rogue Trader Box.
That’s was pretty much that..

But I’d be happy if it was something akin to that.

I’m saying Inquisition with Kasrkin bodyguards up against Nids.

I own the original KT Rogue Trader and it is not a solo game against monsters. Blackstone Fortress was much closer to a solo KT, but not really KT.

It is.

Why'd that be stranger than any other faction? Ministorum runs and coordinates a bazillion different organisations, including all sorts of violent evangelists and commando forces that go forth into the dark places of the galaxy. Everyone and their dog in this galaxy has access to various pieces of tech that can be useful in such environments (if they are important enough to travel in space to begin with, anyway). The forces involved probably aren't fighting in straigh-on hard vacuum environs, likely lacking powered suits, but otherwise there are all sorts of regular joes like storm troopers, boarding specialists, naval armsmen and whatnot who occasionally get tangled up in some void operations. A plausible framing would also be that the Ministorum side is fighting an alien infestation aboard their own ship in its rarely travelled, labyrinthine depths, but with plenty of their own tools and helpful machinery at hand.

Honestly, it's stranger for it to be Ministorum as the thing isn't carved out of the skull of a zealot or a cherub. When you think "Ministorum", you tend towards the cherubs and servoskulls with laud-hailers and the like.

The more I look at it? The weirder this thing is. Why is a clearly mechanical piece, lacking human elements and likely skirting close to what the Ecclesiarchy considers as "heresy", sporting a Ministorum insignia?

The only reasonable-ish explanation I can think of leads me to an Inquisitor's warband--with a piece of tech operated by a Techpriest but blessed by a Ministorum Priest as it gets sent into "corrupted" areas?

Heck, the Ministorum insignia looks like it's just kind of jammed in there.
Spoiler:

If you look at the bottom of the insignia, it does not look like it is part of the 'body' of the C.A.T. but rather it looks like it is attached around the spar for the track assembly.

All in all, it's heckin' weird.


Definitely agreed on the weirdness.

The symbol is integrated into the frame that connects the tracks to the sensor. That's not normally a design you see on Imperial models as it's more chiseled than slapped on in appearance.

Apart from the missing wings, isn‘t the ][ symbol on the CAT very close to the one of the Schola Progenium? That would again point towards a more ‚conventional‘ imperial faction, like Guard.

Given that the description of the Cyber-altered Task Unit mentions "quartermasters," I'm more inclined to think it's going to be some flavor of Astra Militarum.

At a guess? We'll be looking at a box that features Tempestus Scions or Kasrkins going up against Tyranids (my money's on Genestealers), with the terrain along the lines of the Necromunda Zone Mortalis Columns and Walls set and a cardboard gaming mat.

It's the Ministorum/Ecclesiarchy symbol.

Do you think the Inquisition doesn't have quartermasters?

I'm definitely inclined to agree on the Genestealer front.

Although, throwing this out as a completely off-the-rails wild option?

Darktide tie-in!

I think there were rumors of a new space hulk (or space hulk like) game at the tail end of last year?

I assumed it was remote controlled, nothing heretical about that.

Is it possible the CAT is some sort of wandering monster? Maybe it's Kasrkin vs whoever on an Ecclesiarchy ship.

That's probably the one thing we can explicitly rule out at this point.

After all, to quote HBMC, "GW never misses an opportunity to miss an opportunity" - and that goes doubly for cross-promotion with a computer game.

We have two novels coming out soon-ish with model tie-ins.

I'd say that it is more possible than just outright ruling it out.

The only video game model I'm expecting for them to release is primaris Captain Titus for SM2.

Okay, and?

The "Rejects" of Darktide are the thing I was implying as a tie-in, not the plotline.

The question is really about money and sales. If GW can profit from it, they will. So, it's always about the prior product. Those who got stuck with Inquisitor books back in the day know all about this.

I would love for this second season of kill team to focus on closed environments, and each box is a kill zone of an area of the same ship.

With kill teams that fit in ships. Inq/ministorum vs tyranids in this this first box, and vottan, chaos corsairs, freebooterz, cult genestealer, others new xenos races.. reedition of rogue trader and guellepox.. etc etc

I'm pretty sure that is the lore for the killzone terrain in Nachmund. It supposedly takes place on an Adeptus Mechanicus battle cruiser.

What's the betting that the terrain for the new Space Hulk killzone will just be a re-release of the doors, chairs and pipes from the Rogue Trader set of previous Kill Team?

It would be the most logical, if not the box will be very expensive.

but in the video the door that we see is more similar to the necromunda. In addition, the walls that are seen on the sides seem like something new. It could be just decoration for the video... but who knows

There are so many great spaceship environment scenery sets out there, it would be amazing to have a rules set to go with them.

I'm still kinda thinking that the next Kill Team box will be similar to either Necromunda: Hive War or Necromunda: Dark Uprising in terms of terrain and content. Maybe instead of getting the Zone Mortalis Platforms and Stairs that came in Necromunda: Dark Uprising, we'll get two sets of the Necromunda Zone Mortalis Columns and Walls?

The walls in the video arent from necromunda. The problem with the walls/columns of necromunda is that they are very wide, and on a map with the oficial size of Kill team board it could not be played well.

if the new box comes with walls, they should not be thicker than the ones in the fronteris sector or moroch

I'm so glad everyone was completely wrong. Imperial Navy Voidsmen vs Kroot starting the new season of Kill Team which entirely takes place in a plastic Space Hulk!

I don't fully remember in recent history where the rumours were so far off the mark...

There's still chance it is a later version of kill team, but yeah, so wrong on this one.

The Kroot vs Navy is excellent, Witch Hunters are nice. The rest I'm not that interested about, but seemed decent. Good reveals overall.

The roof is Zone Mortalis floor upside down but the floor is new with some familiar elements.

That place is the harsh dark future far left with only war left.

Agreed 100%! Hopefully that means the complete refresh of the Kroot for wh40k. Maybe even Great Knarloc mini?
