Kill Team Series – This November

This November we’ll be featuring a series of Kill Team events from Games Workshop. Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team is a squad-based skirmish set in the Warhammer 40K universe. Kill Team puts you in charge of a small band of warriors tasked with a do-or-die mission. Using only a handful of models, you’ll compete in action-packed battles where every shot and every blow can spell the difference between defeat and glory!

New recruits and battle-worn veterans alike will enjoy fighting for victory on the fields of glory! For new players, we suggest starting with the Kill Team Boxed Set. Are you a more established 40K Player? You’ll enjoy the challenge of building a custom squad of warriors and specialists (See below for full regulations).
