I would have thought that Lychgurad/Praetorians are almost a certainty if Necrons are getting the upgrade sprue treatment.

They have enough personality to do their own thing independent of direct dynast oversight, Praetorians have been shown to have individual quirks with result in visual distinctions, specialist formations of Lychguard exist (eg. Acquisition Phalanx), as do Lychguard with weapons not currently represented (scythe/shield, axe, ranged weapons).

Gallowdark pt2 is just as disappointing as I expected. Mostly the same scenery again with the exception of one new accessory sprue, just like I predicted.

Void war bases are super cool though. I'm glad that I didn't build Into the Dark teams yet.

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

I love the kasrkin and the murdertrailers, but was hoping for squats and more unique terrain. Sigh. Oh well. I'll still get it, but I'll upgrade my hopes from Unlikely to Unreasonable for the next box. Gimme squats vs MkIII breachers fighting it out in totally unique DAoT ship terrain.

Beg pardon if this has already been asked - does the new kill team box basically just switch out the teams while still having the same terrain and rulebooks?
I like this set better than 'Into the Dark'.

This new box does not come with the core rulebook or essentials needed to play (dice, tokens, barricades, rulers).

I suspect that it will have the Gallowdark rules reprinted though, if you already have the core rules etc.

The Kasrkin look good... but just don't make much sense infiltrating a space hulk. In the scheme of things, they would have been a much better fit fighting the Chaos Legionaries in season 1, with the Aeldari Corsairs against the Necrons. I hope there are a lot of spare heads on the sprue, FW have stopped producing Cadian gasmask heads...

The Necrons look pretty solid, and they went with the Immortals/Deathmark sprue as I suspected, but with the character Cryptek, which I did not. A Cryptek team of oddities is kind of the only Necron unit that makes sense to have a variety of roles (excepting maybe a Lord's retinue), so glad they did that.

You know real ships, much smaller than 40k ones, do have vehicles hauling stuff on them? Both inside and outside? Whole fleets, even (right side of pic)?

New box is next week’s pre-order, in a week otherwise kinda quiet on the pre-order front.

Well I was fully prepared to buy into this season of Kill Team. I might actually give this a miss though. I’m just not feeling the need to buy the same terrain I already got with Into the Dark.

I was really hoping that the subsequent boxes would expand on the terrain with new pieces. This is just disappointing.

Same, I bought 2x copies of into the dark. I will buy the Karskin separately when they are released and await the next set incase of different terrain.

With the terrain being sold separately anyway it's not rush on any future box to buy unless the terrain is truly unique.

I shouldn't buy it but...

I don't have that terrain.

I do have a Necron army thanks to Imperium.

I want the Kasrkin to see how they go with either Pistoliers heads for Ventrillians or the respirator pith helmets from WA.

New box already? Did they released the Kroot team individual box?

Nope. Into The Dark box individual pieces are nowhere to be seen yet.

I don't like the fact this box is coming so soon after the Season launch box. I was however planning on getting the book and the Kaskrin separately, now the notion that one needs two boxes of KT21S2 terrain to play "40K zone mortalis in space" makes this box probably the best choice for getting the terrain book and one Kill Team without paying too much extra.. Stupid.

Surprised that the Kasrkin are coming so soon, bit annoyed as well, as I've been gifted a second box of Into the Dark, already have more than enough terrain! 😅

Pretty weird choice to include tiny helper robots for the necrons, but not use the ones that are specifically designed to be used by Crypteks.



Cryptothralls only come with the plasmancer, so it would have been nice to have a few others around. Especially if they'd get ranged options or something.

But then there wouldn't be any room for some slightly different Deathmark heads, now would there?

Seems to me those would be a fairly easy conversion and then "counts as..."

I think a big part of my negative reaction to this release isn’t just the repeated terrain. It’s that it feels just too soon. I don’t feel like I’ve got the full value out of the Into the Dark box yet. I’m not ready to buy more and the lack of exciting new terrain options isn’t triggering my FOMO.

Agreed. I still have some burnout from painting the into the dark terrain. Not really feeling ready to do it again so soon.

So slightly more efficient source of the terrain if you don't need a core book. However to me both teams are less exciting than Kroot and Voidsmen. Eh.
