Shadow War : Armageddon – Kill Teams Inbound

Shadow War : Armageddon – Kill Teams Inbound

Shadow War : Armageddon was recently released by GW and like many of you i have caught the bug and can’t wait to get my first game in. I have my rulebook on order along with the brilliant Gaunt’s Ghosts models (I always loved the books) and while i wait for those i have been toying around with a few different Kill Teams using the awesome tools available at https://killteams.com/ .

I have narrowed it down to the following lists, i chose these factions as they are some of my favourites and allow me to use some great models in the process. First up will be my IG Kill Team “Acheron’s Alphas”.

Acheron’s Alphas — Astra Militarum — 1000 points

Special Weapons Operative — Plasma gun (80), Red-dot laser sight (20)
Special Weapons Operative — Sniper rifle (40), Red-dot laser sight (20), Clip harness (10), Camo gear (5)

Veteran Guardsman — Bolt pistol (25)
Guardsman — Lasgun (25)
Guardsman — Lasgun (25)
Guardsman — Lasgun (25)
Guardsman — Shotgun (20)

For this Kill Team i will be using the Gaunt’s Ghosts models along with a couple of kit-bashed guard to fill out the final few members. I generally try to go WYSIWYG with my models, at least to begin with, so most of the weapon choices were made for me however I could maybe scrape an extra Guardsman if i cut back on some of the equipment. The general idea for this Kill Team is to pog-up with the 2 snipers and provide covering fire while the rest of the team splits up into 2/3 man groups and advances on the enemy/objective.

Next up will be my Space Wolf Kill Team “Wolf Team Alpha”. I have always loved the Space Wolves, they are my favourite out of all the marine chapters and also have some of the coolest scout models ever made.

Scout Gunner — Meltagun (95)
Scout — Sniper rifle (40), Red-dot laser sight (20)
Scout — Sniper rifle (40), Red-dot laser sight (20)
Scout — Bolt pistol (25)
Scout — Bolt pistol (25)

I will be using a mixture of the metal Wolf Scouts and Space Marine Scout models here so again weapon choice is out of the window. I will also be using very similar tactics to Archeron’s Alphas with the snipers providing cover for the other troops while they try to advance. The team seems very small compared to some of the other lists i could go with so i may have to be smarter with my movement to keep me out of harms way.

Finally for today we have “Acheron Cell Alpha” which will be my Inquisition Kill Team. I love the variety of models playing as the Inquisition lets you choose from and this team includes some more of my favourite models.

Acheron Cell Alpha — Inquisition — 1000 points

<

p style=”padding-left: 30px;”>Ordo Xenos Inquisitor — Power armour (10), Scythian venom talon (30), Storm shield (50)
Crusader — Power sword (50), Storm shield (50)
Crusader — Power sword (50), Storm shield (50)
Inquisitorial Acolyte — +1 Ballistic Skill (0), Sniper rifle (40)
Inquisitorial Acolyte — +1 Ballistic Skill (0), Sniper rifle (40)
Inquisitorial Acolyte — +1 Ballistic Skill (0), Sniper rifle (40)

I will need to kit-bash the Inquisitor and 2 Crusaders but plan on using 3 Ratlings for the snipers. The snipers will provide cover and i hope the invulnerable save from the storm shield will give my Inquisitor and Crusaders some much needed help in getting in to CC. I could easily get more feet on the ground if i was willing to make some changes and sacrifices but i like how this list feels and although it is risky i think it could perform well.

I will hopefully get some hobby time in the next few days so i can make a start on these Kill Teams while i cook up some more lists with a xenos/heretic feel to them. Stay tuned !
