Last Friday was the first play test of the kill team rules, and what a night!! The plan was to simply just play test the rules; however we ended playing 5 games, lobbing grenades at each other, blow up six oil drums and hold a three player game by the end of the evening.
Kill team is designed to be a Special Ops game where players can field small teams and play mission based around fun and creative scenarios. Due to the game being based around small Ops teams, multiple players can field teams. This makes it easy to join, needing only a few models for a team and fun to play against more than one player.
Teams can also use special war gear and various skills. For example, you can use smoke grenades to cover your tactical movement, take suspensors for your heavy weapon's team member giving him Relentless or give your sneakly sniper the Crack shot skill.
So what were some of the highlights of last week's test games?
A marine armed with heavy bolter chasing the opposition down corridors, just lika a young Bruce Willis. The same HB marine in a mexican standoff with a marine armed with a sniper rifle( the sniper won because the HB marine ran off...unlike Bruce Willis!!)
And Shukor blowing up the oil drum objectives twice!!! Followed by him taking out the power generator resulting in the game going into night fight mode!!
Play test 2 will be held this Friday, so who wants to join? We are looking for more players to bring their action Heroes to the table!!
