Kill Team Tactics – Your Guide to Getting Better at Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team

Hello and welcome to Kill Team Tactics, our series of tactics guides, tournament primers, and general other useful resources for improving your Kill Team play. This series is intended for everyone, whether you’re brand new to Kill Team and trying to work out what an “Arena” or “Elites” is, a reasonably experienced player looking to kick on and take your game up a level, or even a tournament pro who’s picking up a new faction and wants a quick primer on the good and the bad.

With the new Kill Team now out, we’re in the process of updating all of our content from the old game. Stay tuned as we update this page with new articles and content.
