40K Kill Team: Narrative League

Black Knight Games is very excited to be unveiling our next Warhammer 40,000 Kill Team League!  Our first one was quick, and immediately after the release of the game, so it was pretty simple, but we had lots of players playing some great games, eager to see what we’d do with more time.  Well we thing the time was worth the wait, check out what we have in store:

Registration Deadline: March 2nd

Begins: March 5th
Ends: April 30th

Entry Fee: $10.00

Format:

This is a narrative league, and will follow the rules outlined in the Kill Team Core Rules (p.202) with a couple of exceptions to how we will handle scoring and match-ups.

Team Building:

Follow the guidelines for building a Kill Teak outlined in the Core Rules, especially on p.202.  We recommend using the awesome Command Roster resource to manage your team.  Players must submit a copy of starting roster to us before their first game.

Opponents:

You will be assigned 6 opponents to play during the 7 week time-frame.  You may also play up to 6 pick-up games (you may play no opponent more than twice in pick-up games).  You may play these games in any order, and at any time that you can arrange with your opponents, however we recommend Tuesdays since that is our weekly Warhammer 40,000 night.

League Scoring:

Each player begins the league with 8 of each resources (Intelligence, Material, Morale, and Territory).  Losing missions means you will lose some of your resources.  If you ever drop to ‘0’ of any of these resources you will become a ‘Guerilla’ force.  It is possible to earn some resources with Specialist Upgrades.  Additionally, if you play a pick-up game and you win you earn +1 of one of the resources your opponent lost (so pick-up games risk losing resources, but you can also gain).  Once a resource hits ‘0’ it can never be added to.

At the end of the deadline anyone that has ‘Matched Games’ remaining will lose 1 of each resource.  If you believe that it’s impossible to play a matched game despite your best efforts talk with the league commissioner (Brad) and he can assign you a replacement game.

At the end of the deadline any non-guerilla teams will be compared to determine the winner.  We will look at each surviving team’s worst resource first – so it’s better to have a balance (4/4/4/4 would beat 8/3/8/8).  If there are only guerilla teams left then we will go through the same process and look at guerilla teams!

Missions:

Because resources are key it is important to select your mission carefully.  Consider both players’ resources before picking.  If both players agree they can select any mission from the ‘Narrative’ or ‘Matched Play’ missions.  If they can’t come to an agreement follow the guidelines on p.203 to select your mission (both players roll off and the winner rolls on the chart).

Match Results:

After every game both players must submit their game results via our Match Submission Form.  It’s important that both players submit the form together, otherwise errors can happen.  If you let your opponent do it all then it’s on you if there is a mistake.

League Updates & Tracking:

At least once a week the league commissioner (Brad) will update the overall league standings.  Players should also track their games on the League Tracker cards provided for the most up to date resource scores.

The Spoils of War:

The OP Kit that we have for this league is so full of cool swag that it’s just silly.  You can get more details about the specifics of the OP kit on the Warhammer Community Page, but here are the crucial bits:

Winners Medalions: The top three players overall at the end will get some truly awesome metal Kill Team medallions (Gold/Silver/Bronze)

Kill Team Swag: Every game you play will get you a stamp on the back of your league tracker card, every four stamps you collect will earn you some cool stuff: a Kill Team Dice set with your first 4 games played, and a set of acrylic Kill Team Objectives with your second 4 games played!

Best-in-Faction Badges: But that’s not all, because the top three players in each and every faction will also earn a unique Best-in-Faction badge!

Tactics Cards: All players will also get a small pack of Tactics Cards and a League Tracker card when they play their first game!

40K KoB Kill Team Intro

Join us for an introduction to the new Warhammer 40,000 Kill Team rules set – an all new way of playing, with small specialized squads.  It’s an amazing new system that uses terrain, levels up your characters, and it’s something you can play with just one squad!

Knights of Blackwood: This event is open to all Knights of Blackwood members (our FREE Youth program for those 6-16 years old, so join now if you aren’t a member!)

When: Sunday, Septembe r16, 12:00pm – 4:00pm

Entry Fee: $5.00 (Or 2 Hero’s Rewards)

Details: We will teach everyone about Kill Team, and help you make a list, with a demo about how it works.  We will then play a couple more games, matching players together, helping out with rules, and teaching you how you can level up your Kill Team between battles!  Bring your Warhammer 40,000 miniatures, especially your basic troops, to build your Kill Team from.  If you need help deciding what to bring, ask the staff in advance of the event – and we’ll be happy to help you plan out your Kill Team in advance of the event.

Prizes: All participants will get a KoB Pet, and have the chance to earn a Hero’s Reward which can be redeemed for many prizes, including Knights of Blackwood Pets!

40K Kill Team League

With the new Kill Team rules coming out it’s the perfect time to start up a league!  Kill team is great because it appeals to new and established players, and this new version looks amazing!

Begins: Thursday, August 9
Regular Season Ends: Thursday, September 20th

Entry Fee: $10.00 -or- 4 Hero’s Rewards

Matches: Each week our participants will be assigned a match-opponent.  It’s up to our players to schedule their games with one another, preferably on our BKG 40K Facebook group.  Players will have two weeks to get each match in, either the designated week, or the one after, and if players wish they can play early (provided their other games are done).

In addition players may play one additional pick up match against any other player once per week.

In Kill-Team your team advances with each game, so your games played will help you build-up your teams.

League Scoring: Players get 3 points for winning their scheduled match, and 2 points for winning a pick-up match.  At the end of the league the top 8 players will make the playoff bracket, where we will come up to a Kill Team Champion.

Prizes: We will have prizes for our top players at the end.

40K Kill Team Preorder Special

Kill Team is Coming!  Warhammer 40,000 Kill Team is the result of many previous iterations of a Warhammer 40k skirmish system.  It’s a little bit Shadow War, a little bit Necromunda, and a little bit 40k.  It’s basically the combination of everything we want when it comes to a skirmish game.  It’s got sweet terrain, narrative and competitive play, great in-depth rules for advancing your team, loads of options, and best of all – GW is committing to it long term.  That means OP kits, a solid release schedule, and plenty of support.  This Kill Team is new and improved and here to stay.  And you can play with your existing army!  Learn More
