Kill Team – No Thanks

Update: this opinion has been updated and revised The new Kill Team game from Games Workshop is an interesting beast. It is a great example of how there can be such a disconnect between the material and the presentation of a game and its actual execution. I will qualify my comments by saying that I...

Kill Team as the perfect miniature game
