Gen Con 2022: Kill Team: Into the Dark contents revealed

While we knew it was coming, we now know what’s in it! Games Workshop has revealed the content for the anticipated Kill Team: Into the Dark at Gen Con 2022.

The new release for Kill Team takes the battle into the hull of a Space Hulk where a Kroot Kinband taking on the Imperial Navy.

As expected, the box has everything you need to play the sci-fi skirmish game, rules, terrain, tokens, cards, dice, miniatures, and more. There’s enough to make two complete Kill Teams.

The Imperial Navy are represented by the Imperial Navy Armsmen. The Breachers are elite and trained for close-quarter fighting, exactly what you’d expect in the ships of space.

These bold boarders fight with combat shotguns, blast shields, and other breaching tools, perfect for getting up-close and personal. You get 12 miniatures in all – 10 Breachers, a C.A.T. unit, and a Gheistskull. Even dead Breachers find their use, their skulls are the perfect size for holding a compact explosive…

The Farstalker Kinband are on a mission for new beneficial genetic material to bring back to their Shapers. There are 10 Kroot along with two Kroot Hounds. We’re here for the bird!

The box is backed with terrain to build your derelict hulk. That includes walls doors, pillars, panels, tanks, and pipes! In total there are 54 individual parts and it’ll all expand when the next set arrives three months later.

You get the rulebooks you need, a 144-page rulebook as well as the Into the Dark rules manual. That book has full rules for Close Quarters battle and features 18 missions, nine for narrative, and nine for matched play. There’s also a new type of campaign plus the rules for the two teams in the box!

And of course, the box has all the things you need to play. That means 85 double-sided tokens, including objectives, order tokens, and injury markers, 10 six-sided dice in that signature Kill Team orange, two Tac Ops decks – each containing 27 cards – and one double-sided game board to host all your bulkheads and barricades.

Imperial Navy Breachers and a Kroot Kinband clash in Kill Team: Into the Dark

Kill Team: Into the Dark

With a tease not too long ago, we now have the next major release for Kill Team, Kill Team: Into the Dark. The new boxed set features Imperial Navy Breachers taking on Kroot in a spacehulk.

Kill Team: Into the Dark is a self-contained game and provides everything you need to play.

Imperial Navy Breachers, aka Voidbreachers, are elite soldiers trained for hazardous boarding actions. They carry gear and weapons optimized to fight in the cramped quarters of ships.

The Kroot Kinband are expert trackers, sharpshooters, and guerilla fighters.

Since the game takes place on a space hulk, that means scenery to create maze-like boards with narrow lines of sites and doors to breach.

Finally, this season of Kill Team features releases that are thematically linked, exploring the Gallowdark further. It means a growing terrain collection helping build a modular Kill Team board!

Games Workshop teases the next Kill Team release

Kill Team has taken on a regular rotation taking players to new locations and adding new rules and teams to do battle with. The next seems to be taking its inspiration from past games and will set the game on a space hulk.

Specifics have not been released but Games Workshop has indicated that it will take place on a drifting space hulk. Longtime GW fans will immediately think of the classic Space Hulk board game which saw numerous editions released and pitted Space Marine Terminators against Genestealers. Kill Team itself received the Kill Team: Pariah Nexus expansion at the end of the previous edition that included rules for “ultra-close confines”.

Teased is a CAT, Cyber-altered Task Units. The inclusion would hint we’ll see some Imperial forces in the game, though rumors have swirled about Votann aka Squats. The symbol on the side gives hints as to what we might see but you never know.

We’ve already seen the Corsair Voidscarred but who will they take on in Kill Team: Nachmund? The long-rumored Chaos Marines are indeed their foes in the new box set. Between this and the recent Eldritch Omens, it’s looking like the new Codex: Chaos Marines is on the horizon.

LVO 2022: Aeldari Corsairs Plunder Nachmund in Kill Team

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.
