    Return of Kill Team

    Repacked existing single model blister packs as “Commanders,” chucking in a few chipboard tokens, and charging $65 a box... 🙄 You’re a bunch of beautiful bastards, GW.
  2. Kill Team Rampart Astartes Chaper: Imperial Fists Chapter Number: VII Chapter Master: Vorn Hagen Company Commander: Captain Maluan Company: 5th Company Specialty: Area Denial / Sabotage Kill Team Rampart was formed 110.M42 on orders from Chapter Master Vorn Hagen of the Imperial Fists through a proposal from Oskar Lowis Lord Commander Militant of the Departmento Munitorum and with the consent of Roboute Guilliman, Lord Commander of the Imperium, directed the formation of what became known as "Primaris Kill Teams" across all the Astartes Chapters during the Indomitus Crusade. Drawn from the ranks of the Imperial Fists' Fifth Company, Kill Team Rampart would earn much honor and glory during some of the fiercest campaigning of that crusade.

    If no one minds, this is an an area I’ve been looking at getting into myself. So to answer Scottshoemaker’s questions myself... Do you want a kit or prebuilt? Prebuilt. What is you budget? $200-300, give or take. How big are you planning on printing? Probably nothing larger than 6” x 6” x 6” at the extreme end. Usually quite a bit smaller and in subassemblies. I don’t want to replace proper miniatures, but I’d like to make wargame terrain, dungeon tiles, and tokens.  Do you want to start small then upgrade later, or go all in? Small to start, growing from there. I’ve been poking around the internet looking for reviews, feedback, and the like. I’m leaning towards the Monoprice Select Mini 3D Printer V2. Retails for about $200 USD, most places, and seems to be pretty well liked by most reviewers. Thoughts?

    Return of Kill Team

    I don't like most of Citadel's terrain, to be honest, with the Wall of Martyrs range being a strong example of everything I don't like about their aesthetics. "Less is more" is not a design principle that the terrain design team seems to be aware of. The only WH40k terrain that I really liked was the Imperial Bastion and Aegis Defense Line. I like "blank" walls that I can add details and gribblies to myself, I don't need every square millimeter of the piece to have skulls, cogs, aquilae, and so forth on it. Sigh. But there are literally hundreds of other companies that sell terrain I like the look of better (and trenches are really easy to make yourself). So if the rules for this battlefield type are good, I might buy this set anyway.

    Return of Kill Team

    Add some bastions, watch-towers, wrecked tanks, and the like... You could do a pretty cool rescue the downed pilot from “No Man’s Land” mission. I think what Kill Team really is lacking is rules for night fighting.

    Pedantic point of order, but the Constitution never said a black man was “3/5ths of a person,“ that’s an annoyingly common false belief spread by bad social studies teachers and middle schoolers who didn’t pay all that much attention in class. Article I § 2 seals with the apportionment of Congressional representatives and the allocation of tax burden to the states. These are based on population numbers, with free citizens counting as “1,” Indians counting as “0”*, and everyone else counting as “3/5.” This meant slaves, yes, but it also meant foreign nationals, resident aliens, and so forth: ”Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States... according to their [population], which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons [and] three fifths of all other Persons.” * Even this is as racist as it sounds, remember that in 1789, the various Indian nations were still foreign sovereign nations. Giving potential hostile powers the ability to influence political elections is not a good idea.

    They are releasing an official Organized Play kit sometime this month — it’s GW shipping times and release dates are more “guidelines” than “rules” — perhaps we should look into getting ahold of a kit?

    I wouldn’t advance it so rapidly. I think you’re meant to “sweat a little” when deciding to bring the Level 3 Advanced Badass or two of the Level 1 Newbies... Maybe +10 points every third week? (Also, Pax, I’m reasonably certain the Roster has a hard cap of 20 models. I’m away from my book though, would need to double check.)

    Campaigns are meant to escalate in size over time, so it might be 100 Point Kill Teams to start, then 125 Point Kill Teams later on.

    That’s matched play, which is similar to but different from campaign play. In a campaign, you start without any advancements. In a matched play game, say for a tourney, you can start with advancements. Think of it in D&D terms: If your DM says “go ahead and make a tenth level character,” there are rules for doing that... But by default you start at first level.

    These one cost money (although he does offer both a multi-map discount and a club discount): http://wars175x.narod.ru/wargameprint/designe.html#pnt01 I’ll keep googling.

    Kill Team....IN SPACE!

    Behold! The only living doggo in the Imperium of Man that is not a wolf! May the God-Emperor smile upon him as he bork borks at the xenos, nom noms on the mutant, and grr-arrghs on the heretic. They shall be my finest doggos, these puppers who give of themselves to me. Like clay I shall mould them, and in the furnace of war forge them. They will be hekken hueg and have mighty borks. For great walkies shall I lead them and with the mightiest teefs will they be armed. They will be untouched by fleas or worms, no mange will blight them. They will have squeakies, chewies, and nom-noms so that no foe can bribe them. They are my bulwark against the Squirrel. They are the Defenders of the Lawn. They are my Space Woofs and they shall be Good Boys.
