Shadow War - Armageddon: Cadian Kill Team part 1

So, after a long time since I last bought any Games Workshop products (paint etc. not included), I bought the Shadow War - Armageddon rulebook at the weekend.

Filling the gap left by the Necromunda rule set, it involves "Kill Teams" of three to ten figures fighting over resources.

Based on a recent boxed game and its expansions, and using a tweaked version of 40K version 2, it appears to have been a lot more popular than Games Workshop thought, the box set sold out on pre-order.

So having had a look at the squad building rules, I assembled a Cadian Imperial Guard kill team.

You have 1000 points to build your team, so mine breakdown as the following:

  • Veteran Sergeant: Flak Armour; Las Pistol; Chain sword; Frag grenades.
  • 4 x Veteran Guardsmen: Flak Armour; Lasgun; Frag grenades
  • 2 x Guardsman: Flak Armour; Lasgun
  • Grenadier: Flak Armour; Grenade Launcher with Frag and Krak grenades
Now I need to texture the base and start the painting process.
