Games Workshop will be opening up pre-orders for their new narrative boxed game for Kill Team this coming weekend. Rogue Trader will put you in the fabulous boots of Elucia Vhane and her crew as the battle against a Nurgle infection which has spread throughout her ship.

The game offers you a new Killzone to play in, namely the tight confines of an Imperial shuttle that belongs to Vhane and her crew. You will find eleven linked missions inside the box which help tell the story of the Elucidian Starstriders as they try and survive the infection and escape planetside.

Themed Kill Teams

This means two new heavily themed Kill Teams in the box. The first are the aforementioned Elucidian Starstriders led by Elucia Vhane.

This Rogue Trader Captain is bringing her Voidsmen-at-Arms to battle with her alongside characters like Sanistasia Minst (Medic) and Knosso Prond (Death Cult Executioner). It pays to have a good staff, especially when you're dealing with a shipwide invasion.

I find it a shame that Vhane is in such a relaxed pose. I would have liked to have seen her with sword drawn and pistol at the ready. She might be the Captain but she'll have to get stuck in at some point!

I do really like the style of these models overall though. It's nice to see a wider range of Imperial armour and weapons, looking towards soldiers that aren't just Cadians!

Arrayed against them we have the Gellerpox Infected.

Nurgle Mutants - Games Workshop

This range of mutated crazies are led by Vulgrar Thrice-Cursed and, as Games Workshop puts it, shows off the low-level infected that you'd find when Nurgle gets its tendrils into the populace. As well as a few creepy little daemons you also get some hulking beasts that look like they could smash through a bulkhead if they wanted.

Warhammer 40,000 Rules

Games Workshop is also included two Mini-Codexes as part of the Rogue Trader set which will allow you to use these models away from Kill Team in larger games of Warhammer 40,000.

So, you'll be able to include them as part of your larger fighting force on the tabletop. Maybe once the crew manages to make landfall you could have them as part of a larger battle where an Imperial cruiser is powering through the Warp to try and rescue them from the infected and drops off a contingent of soldiers?

Will you be snapping up this new Kill Team boxed game?
