News — Kill Team

Frontline News!

Posted by Chris Hobday on

Did someone say Chapter Tactics? The new expansion for Kill Team has been announced, and it introduces a wealth of new units and options. Entitled ELITES, it looks like we’ll be seeing Terminators, Wraithguard, Battlesuits and more on our Kill Team battlefields. More options is always cool, and it’s going to be interesting to see how the game evolves with this new set. Hopefully Kill Team will remain a small and tidy game, something to pick up and play when you’ve only got an hour to kill (so to speak). With more powerful units which are not only able to dish...

Exploring GOTHIC RUINOUS!

Posted by Chris Hobday on

For a moment, all you can hear is the rumbling of a tank column, treads crunching over shards of ceramite, discarded weapons and scattered skulls. All you can see is the choking dust that swirls above the battlefield, clogging your respirator and clinging with a deathly grip to your flak armour. Then, mercifully, the smoke clears. The tanks pass. And you finally get a look at what's left of the planet you came to save... GOTHIC RUINOUS is our new modular terrain system, designed to bring your games of Warhammer 40,000 and Kill Team to grim life. Providing evocative line-of-sight...

"Wish me luck! I'm going in!" Calling all Master Builders! We all know that a good table can make a game truly special, particularly when it comes to Necromunda.

If the firelanes are too broad and the table too open, snipers become overpowered; if there is too much terrain, fighters that excel in close quarters combat or have been kitted out with template weapons become dominant.   The trouble is, we'd all rather spend our...

Viva La Resolution!

Posted by Chris Hobday on

"Sir, some of your miniatures appear to be unpainted..." So the smoke’s cleared and we’re getting used to living in 2019. Many tabletop gamers have already made resolutions, the chief of which seems to be to paint all the miniatures they currently own before buying any new ones. Which is about as likely as Abaddon deciding that he actually quite likes the Imperium and laying down arms, or the Rainbow Warriors getting their own Codex. Still we make these promises to ourselves… but in the back of our minds we know that we’re never going to keep them. Which is...

Table Service

Posted by Chris Hobday on

A great table can make the game. When we talk about wargaming, it’s natural to focus on miniatures. We’re blown away by the detail on contemporary kits and dazzled by the paintjobs we see on social media. After spending several hours preparing our models we feel an attachment to them. We feel joy when they succeed in taking down a foe even though it’s an abstracted stat line and a lucky dice roll that did it, not the metal woman with the sniper rifle or the burly hero with the broadsword. It also hurts when those same models drop to...
