" I ran this mission for the first time just last week. i gave the kill team of six marine kill team thirty requisition points each (180 for the total team). which may have been too much. They managed to buy enough special ammunition for the mission (I did give them ammo for the mission instead of the one clip it was supposed to be) and the devastator in the kill-team also managed to get a Missile launcher with Frag and krak missiles. I should also note that i hadn't used the updated errata so bolters were able to go full auto to devastating effect. so if anybody has used this mission with the errata in mind,any feedback on how the mission worked would be appreciated"
