Kill Team Core Manual (1st Edition) is a 32-page softback Kill Team book, featuring full rules for playing skirmish missions (six Kill Team missions are included), with an extensive section on additional ideas for your games – making up and linking your own missions as a narrative, playing games with more than two players, introducing vehicles and mobile objectives, co-operating against hordes of enemies...

It was sold with Kill Team : The Boxed Set (1st Edition)[1]

The Game

No strength in numbers. No margin for error. Pure, fast-paced combat where tactics matter more than brute strength, and every action matters. A single shot can spell the difference between life and death, and a single decision can decide whether a battle ends in glorious victory or dismal defeat: this is Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team.[1]

A whole new way to play games with your Warhammer 40,000 miniatures, this standalone two-player game puts you in charge of small bands of warriors, and gives you one objective – win, or die.[1]
