The Kill Team box set comes with some new GW urban terrain kits plus a nice printed card game board; I've built the terrain and given it a quick slap of paint.
You can build a couple of decent sized buildings out of the set plus a number of ruins which can be configured in different ways.
These have all been primed with black/grey spray followed up with an over brush of grey craft paint. It's dried with a weathered finish which I quite like. I've picked out some of the details with a lighter grey.
I love the Gale Force 9 Gothic terrain set; it's heavy duty, good looking, pre-painted and can be used for both 40K and fantasy games. Unfortunately it's been out of production for some time, although I did manage to score some NIB pieces at SELWG last week. The chap on the stand mentioned that a few of the sets have come back into production for a short run although I haven't seen any on the GF9 website.

I'm pretty pleased with the variety of buildings and ruin sections I've got for Kill Team games. I feel that the board could use some scatter terrain as well; particularly for the road section which could easily turn into an open "no man's land" killing zone. So a quick raid into my terrain bitz box found some suitable pieces to use.
First up are some Aegis Defence Lines. These make a lot of sense; a local Defence Force would take these from their armoury and quickly deploy them on road junctions to form barricades.
These are quick and easy to produce; the Defence Line pieces are glued to plasticard bases, and filler used to provide the ground texture. The paint scheme is a simple base coat then dry brush.
I've also build a couple of small "gardens" ("inspired" by a piece from Pete H's Tyranid infestation themed table at Octoberfest) from old Warhammer Fantasy Battle movement trays and left over battlement pieces.
They will provide cover for a small squad, or can be used as base/boundary for other terrain pieces. Again I can see these being used for Fantasy systems as well; perhaps with a tomb in the centre as part of a graveyard set up.
So it's been a pretty productive hobby period for me; I've also started painting a Kill Team board (oooh!) which I'll share in a future post. As always, thanks for taking the time to read, and drop by again soon for more hobby and gaming fun.
