Halflings look great. Kal Jerico and Scabs I couldn't care less about. Hopefully there will be more to be revealed for Kill Team, like a new starter box or some new minis, because "Elites" is about the most uninspired expansion I can think of. Not to mention if you are playing with Elites and HQs you now need three rulebooks....

Yeah, I agree. I was totaly in love with Killteam, but needing three books plus a certain box to get the tactics, just to play a game seems a little unreasonable :(

The things to the left & right are Vengeance Weapon Battery bases (now OOP). GW have used them as statue bases a few times.

It's two of the defence line gun turrets either side of ... something. I think it's the board with the big fortress; I remember seeing it with loads of Ultramarines on in a glamour shot in one of the rulebooks.

Ah, thank you. I wonder why that imperial trench/bunker/weapon battery terrain disappeared so quickly.

Mehh.

I await news of Kill Team: Vehicles and finally Kill Team: Just Use the 40k Rules Already. But I suppose they can squeeze in a few more pricey supplements before reselling the 40k rules.

Elites and Heroes are just options for KT though. Not really necessities if you don't want them in your campaign.

I still want to love Kill Team as it allows me to play with 40k models without needing to build and paint a full 40k army (which I do not have the time or motivation for, especially in 8th). Needing three (or four, if take into account Arena) books is getting rather unwieldly, though. As for the tactics cards, the, releasing even more “exclusive” cards in boxes with models I already have is finally convincing the completionist in me to not bother with them at all, and just use what’s in the book. I’m not playing to necessarily win anyway. It still is annoying, though.

All that said, this will give me a reason to paint up the Flash Gitz and SW Terminators I had sitting around, and I do like the idea of Ogryns in KT too.

Good news for Custodes players too. I do hope we’ll see a rules compendium eventually, with all books and WD rules included, but somehow I doubt that will happen anytime soon.

While I’m excited to have a possible use for the Custodes I have, releasing rulebooks for every category of model is worrying.

This KT expansion even if approached the same way as commanders is just meh. As someone else said, this is just uninspired. I wholly expect the next two releases to be KT: HEAVY and KT: FASTER ATTACK

Not a bad bit of reveals, but I'm glad that they'll reveal more tomorrow. New CSM, KO in Underworlds, and more still need their moment in the spotlight

HOLD UP. Why do none of the Halfings have hairy feet? The FW ones do (Crumbleberry and the referee) and the artwork in the video shows them with hairy feet. Are they afraid of being accused of ripping off Hobbits?

Which is fine since for the last few years 40k has really been 28mm Epic...

I’m looking forward to the Elite book myself. I appreciate the way that not everything was included in the main rules as it is very clear that the base game is 100 points and doesn’t include units like custodes. Want to use custodes, have a quick chat ahead of time, decide what rule sets you want to use, and off you go.
And yes, I would also be in support of Killteam, light vehicles.

Exactly.
I see this as a great way to create campaigns with an element of story and progression in them.

Start off with a small, 100pt, game and then build up to Elites over a series of battles.

Alt activation, more granular points, smaller scale of game. its literally everything people keep asking for on dakka.

I was kind of more interested in a book adding Inquisitors and Deamons tbh, but that's probably next.

Honestly, what did you expect ? Kill Team is literally just a set of rules adapted for small scale skirmish 40k. So of course they would adapt more units from 40k that are fit to be played in small numbers. What's more Elite than a Kill Team, anyway ?

Funny that a few time ago, people were moaning about the lack of update about Kill Team. And now they're moaning because it's "just bringing Elites". Yeah, no kidding - it was always about having a game while using your regular 40k miniatures in a slightly different way.

Next extension will be Fast Attack or Support, by the way.

Agreed, I never liked the original model either. Really hope that she gets to look as good as Kria from FW!

I cannot help but notice that the elite supplement cover has a Terminator with nice anatomy while also being surrounded only by Primaris. It's probably too much to hope for but I wouldn't mind getting Primaris Terminators that fix the awful problems Terminator models have had since forever. I mean, they did a good job with Abaddon. But it's just going to be awkward painting him yellow, so hey GW, do the right thing! Give us new Terminators!

Nice Halfing team, too.

Their PR manager determined that they should shave their feet to appeal to the female fans.
