The Adeptus Arbites are coming! During the Las Vegas Open, Games Workshop revealed the new Kill Team box set, Kill Team: Soulshackle. It features the Adeptus Arbites taking on Drukhari Kabalites. Not only do you get these to new teams but also 15 new terrain pieces including breachable walls (with push-out sections) and a hololith dais with 3D display board!
The Adeptus Arbites are here to dispense justice! These elite Imperial agents get a brand new kit that is perfect for this game and for Warhammer 40,000!
There’s lots of options and includes a Proctor-exactant, Chirguant, and the Cyber-Mastiff handling Leashmaster. There’s also tons of weapon options!
They’ll be going up against Kabalite Warriors which feature a new upgrade sprue to create specialists like an Archsybarite, Crimson Duellist, and even a Skysplinter Assassin.
As has become tradition at the Las Vegas Open, Games Workshop held a preview event showing off some of what’s coming soon for their games. Kill Team got some hints as to what’s coming in the next “season”.
As shouldn’t be a surprise, the game will turn its focus on the conflict in Nachmund. At least one “new faction” will coming to the battlefield with the Aeldari Corsairs!
The Voidscarred kill team takes inspiration from the noble Asuryani, the sadistic Drukhari, and other things they picked up along the way. Being interstellar pirates, expect a pretty diverse look for the models.
But, this force won’t be limited to Kill Team, you’ll be able to use them with your Aeldari and Drukhari armies.
