Some new box sets are availble to pre-order from Games Workshop over in their store for some of the spin-off games from 40k. There’s a new Kill Team starter that pits the Space Marines against the Tau. Then, you have a new Blackstone Fortress expansion called Escalation. It, as one would expect, continues on the story of the game as you try and take back the weapon systems in the fortress.
A fast paced tabletop miniatures game, Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team pits teams of elite specialists, ragtag zealots and hard-bitten veterans against each other in vicious skirmish battles to the bitter end. A single squad of well-trained and well-equipped warriors can tip the balance of a wider conflict – with Kill Team, you’ll play through countless stories of your own devising that could alter the fate of the galaxy itself.
Games of Kill Team are based around small but powerful squads of warriors rather than huge armies. Every single model commanded is vitally important to your strategy, and will develop its own personality, history and abilities with each game you play. In this box set, you’ll find everything you need to play games of Kill Team – from the comprehensive rulebook that covers open, narrative and matched play games (and campaigns!), 2 complete kill teams from the Adeptus Astartes and T’au Empire factions, a huge set of Sector Mechanicus terrain and a gameboard to play on. Included:
Obsidius Mallex lives! The Chaos Lord has risen from his defeat, and has created a corrupted citadel inside the Blackstone Fortress. Through heretical rituals, his followers have activated ever more of the fortress’ apocalyptic weapon systems, and now Precipice itself is faced with annihilation. In order to survive, the explorers must venture back inside the Blackstone Fortress and destroy the Citadel of Mallex.
The next part in the ongoing Blackstone Fortress story arc is a race against time as the Chaos forces gain control over more of the structure’s weapons. With new explorers, can you destabilise a corrupted region of the Fortress and save Precipice? A new quest will take you deeper than ever before into the mysterious structure – can you defeat the four black shrines and overcome Obsidius Mallex in his Inner Sanctum?
