Operation Kill Team is finally in full swing as Games Workshop open the floodgates to all the collections that you’ll ever need for the skirmish! In this week’s pre-release, we get 5 different Kill Team bundles that will give all players the foundation that they need to power through the skirmish.

We list down the bundles that are now ready for pre-order and hint which ones you probably should lock-in on!

Kill Team Starter Collection

Price: $237

This bundle collects together the full box set with all the accessories you could desire – Datacards and a carry case! – for a complete Kill Team experience. Included:

 

Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team

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 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.

Kill Team Datacards

This is a set of 36 Tactics cards, usable by any Kill Team faction, and 25 blank Datacards.

Kill Team Carry Case

Perfect for transporting your Kill Team to and from games, this is a carry case constructed from rigid foam – strong enough to protect your miniatures from crushing, flexible enough to provide protection from impact. Smaller than a Citadel Skirmish case, it can nonetheless hold up to 20 models – even larger troops such as Ogryns – with the same channel foam inside cushioning them. Rather than a clasp, the Kill Team Carry Case is secured with a zip which runs around its entire circumference, and it even includes space under the channel foam for your Kill Team datasheets!

It is colored black, with an attractive Kill Team logo picked out in orange.

Should you get this?

This is a complete bundle to get you started with your Kill Team skirmish. Buy this if you want to have a fresh new team for the skirmish and if you’re a collector who loves Warhammer merchandise.

 

Kill Team Essential Collection

Price: $79

 

This bundle covers the rules and data cards you need to play games of Kill Team, this is the bundle for the collector who already has the miniatures – in it, you’ll find the Core Manual and a set of data cards. You’ll be running skirmish campaigns with your Warhammer 40,000 miniatures in no time.

This bundle includes:

Kill Team Core Manual

The Core Manual is a 208-page softback book which contains complete rules for choosing and constructing a kill team from 16 factions in the Warhammer 40,000 range (Adeptus Astartes, Deathwatch, Grey Knights, Astra Militarum, Adeptus Mechanicus, Heretic Astartes, Death Guard, Thousand Sons, Asuryani, Drukhari, Harlequins, Necrons, Orks, T’au Empire, Tyranids and Genestealer Cults), along with background explaining the importance of kill teams to the wider battle for supremacy.

Kill Team Datacards

This set of cards is a handy reference for the 36 universal Tactics from the Kill Team Core Manual, along with 25 blank data cards which you can use to record the names and deeds of your own kill team.

Should you get this?

This bundle is ideal for players who already built their ideal team for the skirmish but lacks the rules and data cards to play it. If you ’re a pro gamer who just needs the data card and the rules to jumpstart the skirmish, this is the bundle for you.

 

Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team

Price: $170

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 10-man plastic Kill Teams from the Adeptus Mechanicus and Genestealer Cults factions, a huge set of Imperial Ruins scenery and a game board to play on. Included in this bundle are the following:

  • Core Manuals
  • Background
  • Rules
  • Campaigns
  • Miniatures
  • Tactics Card

Should you get this?

This is a complete bundle to get you started in your Kill Team skirmish. It’s pretty much a Kill Team Starter bundle but without the fancy merchandise, and sold for a cheaper price.

Kill Team: Fangs of Ulfrich

Price: $85

 

Amongst the Chapters of Adeptus Astartes, the Space Wolves are renowned for their ferocity in battle and unwavering loyalty. The Fangs of Ulfrich exemplify these warrior ideals, though they fight their wars far from the front lines against those enemies who would hide in the shadows.

  • A sheet of card gaming tokens
  • A sheet of squad marking decals to add to the Reivers.

Should you buy this?

While not necessary to give you a headstart in your Kill Team skirmish, if you’re playing for the Space Wolves this bundle will probably be essential in making your team Kill Team ready.
