Hmmm. I was realy hoping for a new Killteam starter to make my way into it, but this really isn't appealing to me at all.

Once this drops there will probably be either a wave of new killzones and kill team boxes, or reprints of the old ones. So I would just keep an eye out for now.

This is a good point. Kill Team's support kind of fizzled after a strong launch, and this new starter could represent a new wave of content coming out. Maybe they can make good on the promise that packs with unique models and terrain like Rogue Trader, Starn's Disciples, or Sector Fronteris seemed to indicate was coming.

No point in missing out on the fun if not necessary. If you already have figures, you could just buy the Core rule book, and tune as needed. (My first game was with my Necrons. Had no Deathmarks so I bought another Immortal/Deathmark box. Will make Flayed Ones from bitz and greenstuff. Google "kitbash flayed ones"; there are are a few articles.)

Or as balmong7 has pointed out there may be reprints or all new Kill Team boxes. Would like a 2nd chance at Killzone: Sector Munitorum, maybe Sector Fronteris.

However, I'm open to 3rd party products. Anyone know of alternate cranes, forklifts etcetera for a warehouse/supply depot? (Already have the shipping containers.)

Tabletop Combat has a fair amount of warehouse- related stuff along with shipping equipment and dock yards if you don't mind MDF.

I'm hoping we see more unique stuff as well.

Hell I'd settle for just special sculpts of units that already exist. They wouldn't even need to give me new rules. Just give me some flashy new models at least if you aren't going to try and get creative!

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

Well I am sort of happy. After GW stealth cancelled Sector Mechanicus while I was half way through collecting it I now have an alternate source. The Mechanicus stuff will be on bitz sellers soon enough.

Not the best and not the worst. I have a friend who started a Marines Kill Team and another who started Tau, so might be good for them and we can all use the terrain. I don't need any more Reivers though, so I will be skipping it. If there was more terrain, or another lot like the first starter, I'd be more likely to buy.

Thanks for the reply. No, I don't mind MDF. TT Combat has better looking buildings, but I like the vehicles at Miniature Scenery better. Will just have to place two orders (shipping costs permitting).

No, the firewarriors are stuffed full of different weapons, drones optional parts etc it's a really good quality kit.
Pretty sure the marines have a load of optional gear too.

After missing out on the original starter, I feel the same. The original starter had two teams I actually wanted and a better terrain set. This starter gives me nothing I can use but some meh terrain.

They already released that supplement. It's called Warhammer 40K.

Still a paltry level of terrain. The Kill-Zone had more than that...

I would say it'll be the same cost as the previous one. I don't play Kill Team, but surely there needs to be more LOS blocking terrain?

There at least needs to be cover. The original Sector Mechanicus kit also included a set of promethium relay pipes. Which are just large enough to provide cover without restricting the movement speed of the models. Since cover in kill team is a -1 to hit modifier. It does the job pretty well.

Unboxing article mentions 6 sprues of terrain but the picture shows 7. I wonder which one is correct.

This sad, uninspired, boring set is small consolation for those that missed the excellent first edition Kill Team box set. I'd honestly skip this and just get a rule book and go from there if you want to get into Kill Team now. Although as others have mentioned, I have noticed the game has fizzled quite a bit locally...

Looks like it will cost US$30 more than the first starter released a year ago.

And looks like a 'let's put everything Kill Team that's not selling into a box' lazy GW effort.

It's not as good a deal, especially for people who have already bought into Kill Team (like myself), but it is a one stop starting point for Kill Team and is cheaper than buying everything separately. The main problem is that the Sector Mechanicus set looks extremely sparse.

I think GW has sort of been holding back on Kill Team releases until they could get a mass release starter set in stores again. They had maybe the first year's worth of products done, but really half assed everything afterward. I think this is a soft relaunch of the franchise... but I expect price increases all around.

You think the Sector Mechanicus killzone didn't sell? And Fangs of Ulfrich, Advance Team Starpulse, and the tactics card packs have been out of print and impossible to find for a while now.

According to Spikey bits and BOLS this new starter set will be 160$. I guess it'll be USD since most of their other pricing articles also use USD.

Doesn't matter to me since I won't buy this in the first place.

Wow. One more reason not to buy it (not that I needed another reason). A crappier starter for more money? Great way to grow the game, GW.
