Get Ready For TONS of Dead Guard with Warhammer 40,000: Killteam Elites!

My job gets a lot easier when game companies release trailers, especially with a hard-driving soundtrack:

Games Workshop just announced Warhammer 40,000: Killteam Elites, a brand new expansion for their very popular skirmish wargames system. It's a lot of fun, quick, and you can get your 40k fix in without getting a second mortgage.

Kill Team: Elites is a massive new expansion that brings the very deadliest troops to skirmish combat in the 41st Millennium. Inside, you'll find rules that let you field anything from Terminators to Crisis Battlesuits to your games.

Great, just what my massively ineffective Guard need right now: Crisis Freaking Battlesuits.

There's so much more than that in Killteam Elites! Every single faction gets something cool to play with, from Mandrakes for your killy-bad Space Elves, and Striking Scorpions for your killy-good Space Elves!

Two new groups get to play, too! The Vanguard Space Marines from Shadowspear will be getting a playable list, as will the Adeptus Costodes, so we'll be seeing lots of power armor troops killing my Guard.

Of course, I should probably just upgrade to something with more tooth to it, so I'm happy to see that new troop expansions are coming, including a new Flash-gitz mob for Orks!

We'll be making it easy to add Elites to your kill team roster with a host of boxed expansions. Like previous sets, these will give you themed tokens and a ready-to-go squad of warriors, complete with lore and specialisms. Alternatively, you'll be able to build them as your own custom kill team and take advantage of rules content only found in these boxes!

Looks like my Guard are going to lose yet another battle; the battle of me upgrading to Orks! Mwahahahaha!

Check your local game store or independent Games Workshop stockist for pre-order information!
