    Games Workshop have announced a new expansion for Kill Team:

    Kill Team: Arena

    This expansion is designed to allow players to turn their games of Kill Team into a tournament ready, competitive Skirmish wargame. GW say inside will be new rules to offer a tightly balanced experience, plus guidelines for running your own events. It will also contain pre-constructed maps and new missions. Also included will be terrain and rules for fighting in ultra close confines such as space hulks. Looks like the set contains a new board too.

    They also announced a new killzone: Sector Fronteris, and 2 new kill team sets. One for Adeptus Mechanicus and one for Genestealer cults, and each has a new commander model.

    Looking forward to a better look at Arena, but still need to get hold of Commanders.

    I have to admit that I really like Killteam. Haven’t played 40K in some time. It is good to find a system to use the models in that I actually like.

    Kill Team: Arena least does seem interesting. But of course we shall see what it’s like when it’s released and when can actually see rules.

    When do they plan to release, if ever. the remaining starting “Starter boxes? I mean, Thousands Sons, Death Guard, Harlequins, Grey Knights, etc., with associated terrain sets. Why re-visit 2 factions that they already have?

    The close quarters terrain appeals to me. I couldn’t care less about the tournament style play.

    @blaeyn my thoughts exactly.

    I’d love to see an Eldar Kill team + commander. Same applies to Harlequins. We’ve got the rules, but unlike the top tier factions there haven’t been any boxed components.
    Even the Tau have yet to have a Kill team specific version.

    In fact I’d argue that Kill team is the perfect system to highlight some of the non standard factions.

    This is the Arena announcement :

    Can anyone identify the models ?

    I think there’s a Dark Eldar kill team in there (or at least one that looks like Eldar) and a few that probably from the Black Fortress game.

    GW aren’t reprinting the Kill Team Starter set any more.

    I think those two faction sets got new Commander figures in them to entice the players that purchased the Starter to pick up the faction sets as well.  I don’t think it is the start of a new trend.

    Speculation is that there will be a new starter set, possibly with new Chaos models.
