RUMORS: New Imperial Guard Kasrkin & Necrons Box Set

imperial-guard-rumors-roadmapNew 40k rumors point to a possible Kill Team box featuring Necrons vs the Imperial Guard with the new Kasrkin inside…

Obviously, these are rumors, so take them with as much salt as you need.

With that said, this would make sense regarding both the GW roadmap for Kill Team and the fact that we know the new Imperial Guard is coming this winter. Generally, they like to release a part of a new faction through Kill Team (think Corsairs, Heavy Intercessors, etc…) ahead of the main release to get people hyped.

Then, as the book and other releases come out, you’ll eventually be able to buy the minis on their own.

New Kasrkin & 40k Shadowvaults Kill Team Announced! (October 8th, 2022)

Shadowvaults is a new 40k Kill Team box that will have all the new Kasrkin and Necrons Hierotek models from the 2022 Warhammer Day preview!

Finally, the long-awaited Kasrkin it for the Imperial Guard has finally been announced by GW, and we are pumped!


Necron Hierotek Circles

This new Kill Team Shadowvaults box set will feature an epic battle between the legendary Kasrkin Cadians and a group treasure hunting Necrons named the “Hierotek Circle.”

Not to be left out, this exciting new Kill Team set will include exclusive terrain pieces designed to spice up your games of skirmish combat.

The Warhammer Community stream also mentioned that the Kasrkin’s 40k rules will function a bit differently than regular Guardsmen. As fitting their veteran status, the Kasrkin are capable of using not one, but TWO Regimental Doctrines.

RUMORS: New Kill Team Box Will be Necrons Vs Imperial Guard

New Imperial Guard 4

These come from B&C and Chapter Master Valrak, he says he trusts the source, but take that how you will. Let’s check out the rumors.

Again I’ve done a video dedicated to this but also wanted to make a post, apparently, the next boxset will be out in October and will feature Guard vs Necron.

  • New Kasrkin for the Guard 
  • Necrons are apparently Immortals/Deathmark and have a Technomancher.

Obviously, this is now a fact with the reveal of the new Shadowvaults Kill Team box for Necrons and the Kasrkin from the 2022 Warhammer Day Preview!

So if you’re on the Necrons’ side, don’t get your hopes too high for tons of new stuff, but there is a chance they get an upgrade sprue for one of the squads inside. October did seem a little early when you look at the latest roadmap, but they could always be pushing the timeline up because of the Imperial Guard release.

Kill Team roadmapAs you can see, GW said major quarterly expansions and into the dark basically just came out a few weeks ago.

Check out the video below to get all the details from Valrak himself.
