Most of the campaign rules we are following come directly from the book, there are just a few things that we will be handling differently:
– Commander expansion is allowed if both players agree to play with them.
– We Will be using 100 point lists
– Roster Size Maximum: 20 models
– Specialists will now follow the same rules as Fire Teams, meaning they earn an experience point for surviving the mission and can earn an additional experience point by removing one or more enemy models from action.
– Choosing your mission: The mission will be determined using the rules below

Determining the mission:

After you have an opponent, each of you chooses one of the 8 following actions:
1. Advance:
You may take one additional strategy in the Scouting Phase. (Can’t be the same action twice.)
2. Assault:
Opponent rolls a D6 instead of a D10 when rolling for casualties.
3. Command:
Start the game with +2 command points. You no longer generate Command Points at the Beginning of the battle round for being Battle-Forged.
4. Bolster:
Upon victory gain one morale.
5. Demoralize:
Upon victory opponent loses one morale.
6. Raid:
Upon victory steal one territory from opponent.
7. Infiltrate:
Upon victory steal one intelligence from opponent.
8. Loot:
Upon victory steal one material from opponent.

After each of you has chosen, you reveal at the same time. These choices will pick the mission you will play based on the graph below! (the chart will also be available at the store)

If the third game occurs, players bid chains to use the deck which won both of the previous games. The player who brought the deck starts by bidding 0 chains, and then the players take turns outbidding each other until a player declines to bid higher. The player who bid the highest uses that deck for the third game (with their bid number of chains applied at the start). See below for prizes*

GBE – Kill Team Campaign!

Gnome Games Kill Team Campaign

When: October 13th – December 15th
Where: Gnome Games Green Bay East
Cost: $5/player (covers the entire league)

What is the Kill Team Campaign

Each player will chose an army and begin the campaign with a total of 32 resources split into 4 categories. Using the rules outlined on page 63 of the Kill Team Core manual players will fight out 100 point matches using a “Battle-forged” Kill Team. The player that loses the mission will also lose some of their precious resources as determined by the scenario.

If any of your resource categories fall to 0 support from your faction is pulled! If this happens don’t fret you still may play league games but as part of the guerrilla faction! There are even special prizes for the guerrilla player that plays the most games!

When can I play?

Players are encouraged to play on Saturdays, however league games may be played any time during the week. Players should report their games and update their resource cards as their games finish. A league week runs from Saturday morning to the following Friday night.

Spoils of war! Fabulous Prizes!

Participation prizes are given out weekly, the first time a player checks in that week. These include “Tactics” cards that give players cool in-game benifits! In addition if you play at least one game each week in a 3 week period you get the following:

  • Oct. 13th – Nov. 2nd: Play in all 3 weeks to earn a pair of Kill Team Counter Spinners!
  • Nov. 3rd – Nov. 23rd: Play in all 3 weeks to earn a set of Unique Kill Team Dice!
  • Nov. 24th – Dec. 15th: Play in all 3 weeks to earn set of Unique Kill Team Objective Markers!

Also, at the end of each 3 week period, the player from each faction with the most remaining resources will receive a “Best in Faction” button to show off their tactical skills! If a player has lost their faction and are fighting for the guerrillas, they will be awarded the Best Guerrilla button if they have played the most games (only applicable in league section 2 and 3).

The Best Overall Kill Team (the single team with the most resource points) will be awarded a Prize Medal as follows:

  • Nov. 3rd – Nov. 23rd: Silver Medal
  • Nov. 24th – Dec. 15th: Gold Medal
