Let's Play a Game!
"How Many Cool Kill Teams Can We Create?"
HMCKTCWC for short
Now "Kill Team Creation Challenge" for even shorter

So... I have assemble a pile of bits and pieces from years of bits whoring and half finished schemes. We are looking at Space Marines, Necrons, Imperial Guard/other human stuff, Tau, Eldar, Chaos, Orks, and various other random bits. Clearly I have yet to learn all the new names for the races, I'm sure someone can translate for those newer comers if need be

So we are off, where to start
I think I'll pull out some early contenders and see if you guys can help me pick direction for the first Kill Team?!

After seeing your pile of bits I think the proper answer is: all, all of them, maybe even a bit more than that.

So there's a ton of bits to play with but while going through I've managed to pull out some early contenders. These are partially finished models from old projects that might make a good base for some cool kill teams!

There's plenty more stuff to dig through and I'll be able to use it to build on any existing models I have

If you have any suggestions, ideas or crazy directions I could take these in I'm all ears!! I plan to just keep making unique unit of badass characters!

Here's a few remnants of past projects I've pulled out so far. Might make a good place to start!

In case anyone wondered what the little forge world bag was... it's a Death Korps of Krieg Stormtrooper Squad!

Up next we have so Elite Space Marine Spartans (I have a lot more spartan bits too)

We have some Primaris Marines and other Marine characters. Could build up on them for some interesting results.

Then we have Pirate Orks, enough said...

There's of course plenty of Death Guard and Chaos bits

And of course loads of Imperial/Human/Tau parts to make some crazy characters!

So I picked a set of models to start the first Kill team. I went with the Death Korp Stormtroopers as a base for these guys. I've planned out several characters for this kill team and have started picking out bits for them. At this point in time I have a Leader, Medic, and Comms Specialist, more to come!
I have not come up with a name for this unit or the characters yet, so ideas are welcome

Amazing start! I love small teams of very unique models too, definitely looking forward to more of this!

My vote is for chaos next!

@Pneumo Thanks! Yeah I'm feeling inspired to build some awesome unique Squad full of characters with rich story. I am planning to make several different Kill Teams for my wife and I to build a campaign around. I want to work up a bunch of teams for us to encounter on the battlefield and to enhance various missions.

I am almost finished a Squad of 8 for this Death Korp Kill Team!

After starting my "40k Kill Team Creation Challenge" I so far finished my first squad of 8 elite Guardsmen. I'm pretty pleased with this first set of totally unique characters, I'm excited to jump into the next unique Squad!

Astra Miltarum "The Fallen Ashes"

Hardened Veterans: Survivors of a dozen war zones, these hard bitten warriors know all the Willy tricks they don't print in the imperial Primer.
Raiders: an ammo dump, command relay or supply line must be eliminated deep behind enemy lines.
Death Worlders: Many worlds in the imperium are hazardous in the extreme. This Squad hails from such a planet, and its members are renowned for their resulting toughness.

Leader: "Major Lionheart" Tempestor - Plasma Pistol, Power Sword, Frag/Krak grenades - Vengeful

Sniper: "Lancyr" Special Weapons Gunner - Sniper Rifle, Frag Grenades - Eagle Eye

Comms: "Sparky" Scion - Vox Caster, Hotshot Lasgun, Frag/Kark grenades - Haunted

Medic: "Doc. Frank" Scion Gunner - Plasma Gun, Frag/Krak grenades - Pius

Scout: "Hawkeye" Special Weapons Gunner - Meltagun Frag/Kark grenades - Courageous

Veteran: "Crowe" Scion Gunner - Hotshot Volleygun, Frag/Krak grenades - Dutiful

Also a little preview for you guys of the next Kill Team Eldar/Asuryani "the Deep Watch".
Thanks to a special request from my wife and suggestions from others, we have come up with an undersea defenders theme for this team. This one will have a bit of sculpting to do, should be fun!
