    deathwatch inquiry

    i don't know if this belongs here but.... do deathwatch count as marines the reason i ask is i play whitch hunters and am thinking of allies and deathwatch sound cool and all but i can't have marine allies and sisters in the one force and i'm not gonna lose my bolter biatches so isit legal to have them in a wh force?

    i know gk don't count as true marines as i think it only refers to chapters in the codex: spacemarine book but i'm not sure

    Actually, the deathwatch is another faction of the Inquisition. So you could probably get away with it...

    you can take one as an IG HQ. If I remember correctly there rules are to be found on the GW site.

    Technically, no.

    Deathwatch are a special unit that may be used by space marine armies. In a particular scenario that was released by GW, they could also be used as an IG HQ unit.

    As they ARE marines, you still would not be ab le to take them with a sisters force and technically, if you arent playing that particular scenario, you wouldnt be able to take tham as IG either.

    Course, I dont have the actual Deathwatch Article from WD, so its very possible it says you can allie with WH. But unless is specifically states you can, not allying with SM keeps them from your army.

    1) Chaplain led Assault squad - 2 plasma pistols, powerfisted sergeant

    2) 8 man Devastator squad - 4 missile launchers

    3) Land Speeder Tornado - HB + AC

    I tend to agree on the letter of the rule, but disagree on the spirit. As the DW is composed of Marines then no. However as the DW is part of another Ordo of the Inquisition it would be fluff wise logical. Of course you could run the marines and have the sisters as allies. That is still perfectly leagle (go figure).
