Ok in Index Astartes 2 it has a small section on Deathwatch, sounds really kool. Where is their more info about them? Force organisation charts etc? Are you able to field purely a deathwatch army or are ther more rules to it? Let me know where i can read up more, It mentions the grey knights as part of it.
Deathwatch are the Chamber Militant of the Ordo Xenos,just as the Grey Knights are the chamber Militant of the Ordo Malleus and the Adepta Sororitas are the Chamber Militant of the Ordo Hereticus. (deep breath) Eventualy GW is gonna give them thier own codex and models and all that spiffy stuff just like the other two Ordos.In the meantime though you can add a Deathwatch squad to a Space Marine army or add a single Deathwatch marin to a SM unit.
Ok kool, so erm, where do i find out about their stats and hellfire ammo etc? chapter approved? I have maybe half the books published but that still leaves a lot out.
CA 2003 had the rules for them.
With the new traits system you can field pretty much an entire Deathwatch army with just the SM codex. Just give them 'Trust your battle-brothers' and buy true grit for every squad. Easy as pie, though not as filling.
You miss out on the freaky bolter ammunition and the assault heavy bolter but it's not a huge deal, and you can always ally in a regular kill-team for that if you want to.
cant wait till codex alien hunters comes out (dont think the deathwatch will still get their bullet types )
i have a feeling those ammo loads will still be around though probably only for hq and elite units or as a wargear choice

I came, I saw, I got a different type of Leman Russ.
The spikey ones go faster.

Saga of the Ages. Click it.
Rules for grenades are on page 72 of the rulebook.
yeah, i suppose, maybe less types of them tho?
Actually... All GK have NFWs and all Psycannons have Suspensors. So why couldn't an entire Deathwatch army have that fancy Bolter ammo available as an option for all of them, and suspensors for all their HBs?
Different types of ammunition (and the Suspensors) would simply be one of the gimmicks of a Deathwatch army... And quite a likely one!
"The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all biomatter consumed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be devoured."
Talk about a great HQ unit, couple the new SM Librarian with a squad of Deathwatch. Gimme two HB, plus a vet sarg with M40 targetter and PW, then through in another couple of vets with PW's and that is one sweet HQ. Pricy but what tooled up HQ aint. Add to that the fact that the fluff say's they can teleport in at player discretion, now it get's down right scary :blink: just think of the possibilities. Infiltrating scouts with vet sarg/tel hommer, add in termie squad and HQ squad. gets real ugly real fast. :lol:
breath, sight, squeeze.
now double tap just for grins
and Another One bite's the dust.
A bolter round for all that oppose the Emperor.
