Killteams!

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. With Killteam out and the rules firmly in hand, I've decided to get cracking with building and painting kill teams for every faction. Now I'm sure this will end like every project (half finished, models being used for other armies, etc) but I'm going to give it a go anyways!

Now the plan is to use mostly bitz and stuff I already have laying around. This will keep the cost down and make me really dig deep to make models.

First up, Death Guard!

I had a bunch of them fancy 40k bases and decided this was the perfect opportunity to use them. The marines are also just starter box marines with some leftover bits from the plague marine box. Now to find the extra zombies I had around here...

Well... That took far longer than I expected. Apparently I can only post so many pictures without using a image hosting site? Oh well I figured it out.

Anywhoo, Look more orks! A boss nob, burna (he uses electricity though), big shoota boy. And My leader model, the kommando boss nob, Freeboota.... Well he doesn't have a name. I just made him and kinda started painting him.

Lookin' good so far! I like that there's no actual functional difference between an Ork Sniper and any other Shoota Boy 😄

I know! I was super sad when I saw that orks didn't have a sniper specialist. 

Had they, I woulda gave him a Celestial Lions helmet or something.

Well it's been a couple days but I got some more killteams done!

Apparently I actually had a squad of guardians laying around with a few dire avengers? Cool, eldar kill team done!

And some Ad Mech to enter the fray. Killteam 01010100 01101111 01100001 01110011 01110100 01100101 01110010 00100000 01001100 01101111 01110110 01100101 01110010 01110011 should be able to kill some meatbags!

I also have marines done but marines are kinda bland and the only killteam I actually have a ton of options for. But who really wants to see starter box Interssesssers  and sniper scouts? So this the more "unique" marine killteam...

But I do plan on painting them like my regular counts-as-everything marines. Which means they are gonna look like this...

(These guys are currently being played as Deathwatch Hellblasters with their Watch Master.)

So I have harlequins, dark eldar, nids, and tau guys somewhere. So that leaves GSC, T. Sons, CSM and Grey Knights to pick up?  I guess it gives me an excuse to buy more models.

I hate Guardians...

How did that Eldar KillTeam fair?

Haven't played it yet! I've got a couple games in with the ad mech, deathwatch, orks and death guard.

In my limited experience close combat and flamers are the way to go. Unless you dump a ton of cp for your Heavy and double tap them.

So a bunch of eldar don't seem like the greatest? Maybe the tons of dakka they put out will kill guys?

Very nice! I might need to start a thread also.  I've got Death Guard, T'au, Grey Knights, Gene Stealer Cults and Astra Militarium from the starter box, and the Reiver and Orkz boxes going.  Unfortunately, most of the box teams require additions or swapouts in order to hit the ~100 point mark. I feel like I'll be starting a trade thread seeking 1 or 2 of a bunch of different armies' models, lol.

I know nothing about 4 Guardians & 5 Dire Avengers...

But my old experience tells me they'll get destroyed by almost anything...

I know nothing about this edition (other than everyone yelling they're OP... which is nothing new)

Guardians do still suffer from the same problem they've had since 3rd Ed: They're short-ranged Models with poor durability. I really wish they'd go back to 24" guns for them, rather than having the dying race throw their citizen militia into point blank firefights. In KT, I'd probably just take one with a Shuricannon or Scatter Laser Support Platform, and have the rest be Avengers and Rangers.

Cool, thanks

I decided to throw some paint on models since its going to take a bit to finish the rest of the killteams.

Changed up the Space Marine Killteam since I picked up a 3-pack of Reivers .

Wow... When you get that close you can totally see the missed mold lines and the messed up wings on the regular sergeant. Anyways, Leader Intercessor Sergeant, Space Marine Sergeant and a Scout Gunner Heavy Specialist.

Reiver Combat Specialist, Tac Marine Gunner Sniper Specialist and a Reiver Sergeant.
