Amidst the looking up if rules and flipping back and forth between the 2 teams stats we threw dice. Brandon and I have been wanting to play this first game of Kill Team for a while. I had picked up some press-fit intercessors and reavers just so I could have a quick team for a pick up game and had put them together a few days prior. I do have a Tau team I am putting together and we will flesh them out in another article.
Now to the main show. We ignored a lot of rules but think we followed the intention of the game. I ran some
space smurfs adeptus astartes and Brandon my opponent ran death guard
We rolled d3 to see what open play mission we were going to play. The roll of a 4 granted us the search and rescue mission. This was our board
I choose to defend so I set up the objective markers and we placed troops.
Brandon had initiative.
We booth moved up and did not make many hits.
Board between round 1 and 2
Round 2 I had initiative.
We had to go back and roll for the objective markers and rolled a 6 so we went down to the single marker.
I did not move much, but instead readied my troops Brandon moved up some, but readied a few of his troops as well.
Round 3 I had initiative in round 3 as well.
I moved my leader and readied the rest of my troops. Brandon moved in hard on me and advanced about 1/2 of his troops.
I took a few hits in this round loosing my sniper. we did not take anymore pictures.
I readied and Brandon over took my position and took out my comms guy. Due to his positioning we called it as he had control of the objective and I had no real way to overtake and defend the position.
It was a fun game and I think as we understand the rules better we will have more fun.
