[Kill Team] Into the Dark


Recommended Posts

the C.A.T has the same base paintjob as the kasrkin teased some time ago.. so Im sure they are one side.. perhaps this new kill team set will introduce unit + "solos" so something like an Inquisitor/imperial agent accompanying the kasrkin unit.

The description makes it sound as if the opposite side is among the more darker things... so no Votann, imperial, tau or eldar is my guess.

The Cat has an Inquisition symbol, so I'd say one faction is more tham likely the long awaited Inquisition Kill Team (hopefully! :biggrin:

Seeing as the original 'not April Fools' Votann teaser was on a Space Hulk, I wouldn't be surprised if they're the other faction - especially when the Hearthkin squad they revealed the other week had miniatures that are typical Kill Team specialists (Medic etc) :wink:

Good catch, that does look like a match to me - and you can clearly see that the Kasrkin are based differently to the rest of the new AM range, which suggests that they are from a separate release.

 

Were there rumours about new Nids at some point a little while ago?

The hexagons that resolve into text seem fairly suspicious also - do the Votann use hexagons/hexadecimal in any language or imagery? They're my first feeling.

Teaser looks very close to that for Leagues of Votann...article says one faction is Imperial...so

Admech v Leagues?

Dont think itll be Guard or marines

The teaser has what sounds like animal screeching though, plus AdMech already have a white dwarf kill Team and don't seem to have any models on the horizon

My guess is guard vs genestealers. The new karskin seem to have very similar bases to the CAT shown toady.

Good spoot ! think you may be rigth here

 

But one still dream about a new space hulk with new big terminators

Its not an Inquisition badge, its Adeptus Ministorum

The Inquisition icon has 3 spikes per side and that one has more, so it seems like it's them

May be Imperium vs Votan, technically the Leagues are not Imperium aligned, this could be the Inq having a nose about to see if the Leagues are friendly or not.

Actually I think it might be necron opposing the kasrkin... we've seen a necron rumor engine a while ago, we are now in the nephilim season wich for some reason uses necron coverart, and it could easily tie in with the whole rumored ursula creed story.

Yeah, I'd be a little surprised if the first appearance of the new and groovy Squats is to face them off against the Imperium. Not impossible, but I'd think more likely GW would like to have them in a box vs. one of the more outright menacing factions. So maybe Imperium vs. Necrons in this box as you suggest, and then the Squats show up in the next Kill Team box? There IS the disturbing fact that the Votann were first teased with a similar Space Hulk scenario though and I don't really see GW going to THAT well twice in a row.

The C.A.T has the badge of the Adeptus Ministorum on it, but would there be another Sisters kill team so soon?

I think you're on to something with the ministorum. Could be a new priest accompanying the guard.
