Kill team Astra Militarum

Hi all


Today it’s time to have a look at the Astra Militarum in Kill Team





Attention, Guardsmen!


For today’s Kill Team Focus, we’re looking at the brave troopers of the Astra Militarum – mortal soldiers of the Imperium armed with nothing more than lasguns, flak armour a massive helping of grit.









In Kill Team, the Astra Militarum can easily outnumber their foe with plenty of infantry. You’ll be able to absorb losses to your squad that would be devastating for anyone else.





Like in Warhammer 40,000, Guardsmen can be issued orders by your kill team Leader that allow you to adapt your strategy – whether ensuring a heavy weapon hits or getting stuck in with close combat.





This is the perfect opportunity to do that regiment you’ve always wanted to – with only a few models to build and paint, you can tackle anything from the Ventrillian Nobles to the Miasman Redcowls – or a custom regiment of your own making.









The bulk of most Astra Militarum kill teams, individual Guardsmen might not be that tough, but they can quickly overwhelm foes through weight of numbers.





These guys are your main source of firepower – what you arm them with is up to you, from short-ranged flamers to sharp-shooting sniper rifles





For those looking for a more elite option, Scions are more durable and more accurate than their kin, as well as having access to armour-piercing hot-shot lasguns.








Guardsmen aren’t exactly the most durable troops around, but you’ll be able to keep your Leaders and Gunners in the fight with this nifty Tactic.







Orders are invaluable for Astra Militarum kill teams – use this Tactic to get the most out of yours.







There are no wrong answers when building an Astra Militarum kill team, but you really can’t go wrong with a Command Squad set – both the Catachan and Cadian set will give you a strong core.





Packed with special weapons, conversion bits and all sorts of characterful components, it’s the perfect place to start your kill team.


A really great looking force and obviously the most relatable. At the rate this is going, I’m going to want to do all of them. Not good for my bank balance.
