I'm about to run a Deathwatch game, so I thought I'd post my ideas in here to maybe inspire someone We've a lot of 40k gamers in our group, so I'm basing the potential enemies on the armies in use... that way we can link it to our current campaign and the area of space we battle in.
Basically part of the background my chapter has is the destabilisation of the webway in a small region. This is the reason you'll find people in the galactic north you wouldn't do otherwise I can't post anything in here about my plot plans so I don't spoil it for AT, but I'll post up mission reports when they are done
- Watch Station C1263 - lead by former BA assault captain and now Watch Commander Adelias, this is where the kill team will be based.
- Furious Angels (BA successor chapter) - you can read all about these guys through the link in my sig, basically it's my custom chapter.
- Cadian 15th "Firstborn Devils" - still technically the 15th, but after repeated merging now contains a number of Vostroyan and Catachan troopers along with a larger than usual psyker presence, but a limited number of vehicles. Silver and grey colour scheme.
- Pentients of Our Lady of Refuge - An organisation of individual convents, the original convent was an offshoot of the terran-based Order of the Sacred Rose formed under de La Croix as a Pronatus order - dedicated to the location and recovery of holy relics.
- Rumours have placed a Flesh Tearers chapter in the vicinity, but have yet to be reliably sighted.
- Warlord Gulrukk ("Defcharge") and his ragged band of orks.
- Craftworld Althansar
- Hive Fleet Behemoth splinter
- Unknown Tyranid hive fleet
- Unknown Tau Sept - part of the renegade Shas'O forces, currently looking for new territory
- Rumour of a Necron presence also persist, but are as yet unconfirmed (as our 'cron player prefers his CSM, and hasn't given me the info I asked for yet!)
The plot will revolve almost entirely around the xenos in the area, with the warp touched only appearing briefly (as is only appropriate for the Ordo Xenos!) Hopefully my next post will be able to detail the killteam members themselves
- Black Legion - Abaddon's personal warband.
- Another CSM legion, as yet unnamed
- Unnamed Daemonic Host
