Kill Team (3rd Edition) and The Collector

Kill Team (3rd Edition) and The Collector

A new edition of Kill Team is out, and that has generated a fair amount of buzz around here with building some unique and fun teams for the game. I’ve been fiddling back and forth with both Necrons and various flavors of Chaos (Night Lords and Khorne) about what I’d like to do, and somewhat sparked on the Necrons side of things.

I did up a new “leader” model for the team, a Flayed One that combined parts of a Royal Warden, to represent a more leadership-oriented personality who could lead the team–but still was a corrupted Flayed One. I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out.

While I had Necron paints out I also finished up Trazyn the Infinite. I so thoroughly enjoyed the fluff about him (the novel The Infinite and the Devine by Robert Rath: https://www.blacklibrary.com/all-products/the-infinite-and-the-divine-ebook-2020.html), so I had to paint up my own version of him. I did a bit of modification, as he is a Finecast resin model–so a bit fiddly. I swapped the weapon around–same head but the arm from a Lychguard/Praetorian staff for more stability to the weapon.

He’s come to collect you!

The other thing you might notice are the small T-shaped plinths behind him. Those are small display bases, with an embedded magnet. So as I have victories (or fun losses), I’ll get bits from the armies I’ve beaten and paint them up (or have my opponent paint them if they’re kind and want to get their color scheme perfect), so he can have constantly rotating “display” items with him. I’ll do up a larger display base with more of these too if I start getting a lot. It’s a fun way to make the games meaningful and connected, so wanted to have some fun with a Special Character known for taking, storing, and collecting the artifacts of other races.

Gaming-wise I got some Kill Team games in as well–a few with my Necrons, and one with my Chaos Daemons of Khorne. Some shots from the games are below. Kill Team in this new edition is super-quick and deadly, so it runs really fast.

On the Marvel side of things, I got another model added to my collection: Shuri. This rounds out my Wakanda affiliation (the first affiliation I’ve run meaningfully in more than one game). While getting the dots quite right was difficult, overall I’m pleased with the look of the model.
