My friend Sean got excited about Kill Team, and I decided to join him. Even though I wasn’t playing 40k when Genestealer Cults came out, I’ve been tempted by them from afar. The small model count of Kill Team makes it relatively easy to start something new, so here we are.
Flamers autohit in Kill Team, so I wanted to take two of them. The kit only comes with a single, so I mashed a second one from the bit box. The leader’s arms are magnetized to swap the loadout, but I decided not to bother for the shotguns. After all, I’ve got another five guys on sprue.

Hey, I wanted to ask, what specific kind of magnets and drills do you use for magnetizing neophyte hybrids and acolytes?
My go-to magnets are 1/8 x 1/16″ and 1/16 x 1/16″ disc magnets from K&J Magnetics. I usually buy the strongest I can get at the size, but any of them are fine. Sometimes I use smaller (1/16 x 1/32″), but rarely bigger.
For arms I’d usually use the 1/8″ diameter. For weapons, 1/16″.
The drills are hand drills with random/cheap drill bits from the hardware store. I think the 1/8″ drill I use is a handle from an Xacto needle file set. The 1/16″ is some generic pin vise like this one.
I won’t claim the drills are the best option, but it works well enough for me.
