Products Released for Kill Team (The New 2021 Edition)

Sometimes it can be hard to get a clear overview of what has been released so far for Games Workshop games. Things have a tendency to go out of stock or be limited releases, and then they disappear from GW sites.

In this article, we list all products released for Kill Team (the new 2.0 edition)

Starter Sets that have been released for Kill Team

Kill Team: Octarius (out of production)

Kill Team: Octarius set isn’t in production anymore, but you might get lucky to get it via other eBay or via your local Amazon.

If you’re able to pick one up in a local store, it’s the original starter set for this edition of Kill Team, and it has everything you need to get started:

  1. The Core Book
  2. Octarius Book with rules for the two kill teams in the box as well as for the Octarius Killzone campaign setting.
  3. Rulers and movement gauges
  4. Dice
  5. Tactics cards
  6. Tokens
  7. Killzone Octarius scenery (amazing, trashy Ork stuff that’s really fun to paint and can be set up in many different ways)
  8. game mat (sturdy cardboard and different layouts on each sides of the foldable board)
  9. Veteran Guardsmen Kill Team – see our guide for the team here.
  10. Ork Kommandos Kill Team – see our guide for the team here.

This box really is (was) a great way to get started – The two kill teams are so much fun to play, the terrain is great and easy to paint to an acceptable standard (a metallic spray and some Contrast paints will get you most of the way to tabletop standard), and there’s a core book in there along with the campaign book. Most of this is also true of the current Starter Set (see below), but that set only has a bit of the scenery and is missing the full Octarius book.

Kill Team: Starter Set

This is the current official starter set for Kill Team, and it has everything you need to get started with the game – but you’ll probably need more scenery and books pretty quickly if you’re going to play the game more regularly.

The box includes:

  1. a Core Rules booklet – so not the full Core Rulebook, but enough rules to start playing
  2. a Recruit edition book with the rules for the two kill teams in the box and some tutorial missions.
  3. everything from the Kill Team Essentials box (see below): Combat gauges, Barricades and tokens.
  4. 6 pieces of the Ork Terrain from the Octarius set. This is very barebones stuff and gives you a pretty flat battlefield to play on.
  5. Dice
  6. Veteran Guardsmen Kill Team – see our guide for the team here.
  7. Ork Kommandos Kill Team – see our guide for the team here.

This box follows the design that’s been the norm for 40K and AOS starter sets in the latest editions: There’s an emphasis on “starter” here.

The box doesn’t give you the full rules for the game, and while it does have two full kill teams, the rest of the box is more of an appetizer for the real game.

So, if you want to start playing the game, but you’re not particularly fond of either of the teams in the starter set, you’re better off buying a Core Book, the book with rules for your preferred Kill Team, the models for your team and an Essentials box.

If you want to play Kill Team with your kid or want to give it as a gift to someone who is considering going into skirmish games with no prior experience, however, the Kill Team Starter Set is a good purchase.

Expansions products released for Kill Team

Kill Team: Chalnath (out of production)

Like all the other expansions for this edition of Kill Team, Chalnath was only available for a limited time. It included:

  1. the Chalnath campaign book with rules for both kill teams in the box, as well as rules for playing campaigns and other battles in the Chalnath Killzone.
  2. double-sided game board and scenery for Killzone Chalnath. The scenery consists of imperial ruins that make for very vertical gameplay and tons of line of sight-blocking terrain.
  3. Novitiates Kill Team – see our guide for the kill team here.
  4. Pathfinder Kill Team – see our guide for the kill team here.

If you can find this box in a local store (or at an okay price on eBay), it has some of the best general scenery for Kill Team – and it’s easy to paint as well, with not too many different textures for you to find colors for.

The kill teams in the box complement each other well, with the Pathfinders preferring ranged combat and the Novitiates using flamers and melee weapons in close combat.

Kill Team: Nachmund (out of production)

Like all the other expansions for this edition of Kill Team, Nachmund was only available for a limited time. It included:

  1. The Nachmund campaign book with rules for both kill teams in the box, as well as rules for playing campaigns and other battles in the Nachmund Killzone.
  2. double-sided game board and scenery for Killzone Nachmund. This is some pretty cool Sector Mechanicus stuff with huge plasma reactors and a very detailed crane, which makes for a very different experience from the previous two Killzones (there’s way fewer walls here).
  3. Voidscarred Kill Team – see our guide for the kill team here.
  4. Legionary Kill Team – see our guide for the kill team here.

The scenery in this box is a bit less generic than what’s in the Chalnath box, but the kill teams are both very cool, with Legionary team especially offering many different ways to play.

At the time of writing this, there’s also no other way of getting these two kill teams than by buying this box (this is likely to change soon, though). Check your local store, Amazon and eBay if you really want this box.

Kill Team: Moroch

This is the last expansion box of the first season of Kill Team, and it includes the following:

  1. The Moroch campaign book with rules for both kill teams in the box, as well as rules for playing campaigns and other battles in the Moroch Killzone
  2. double-sided gameboard and scenery for Killzone Moroch. This is some pretty new scenery, so that adds to the value of the box.
  3. Blooded Kill Team – brand new Traitor Guard kill team only available in this box – our guide is on its way.
  4. Phobos Kill Team – the first bespoke Space Marine kill team, but consists of already released models and a pretty bland upgrade sprue. Fun to play, though – our guide is on its way.

This is one of those boxes that’s just as much about its value as it is about its utility in the game.

The scenery is great for 40k as well (and brand new), and the Blooded Kill Team features two models from what used to be the Blackstone Fortress expansion Traitor Command, which has been out of production and in high demand for a long time.

The Blooded are an amazing evil twin to the Veteran Guardsmen team of the original Octarius box, and the Phobos team is sort of a blend between how teams were done in the Compendium book and how they’ve been done in the expansions (you can even take models in the Phobos team that aren’t in this expansion set!).

Rulebooks for Kill Team

Kill Team: Core Book

This is the core rulebook that you need to have in order to play the game.
