    What exactly do you want?

    They're the chamber militant for the Ordo Xenos, and as such there will be stacks of info on them in the forthcoming Codex Alien hunters. Any idea when that'll be out by the way?

    Dont hold your breath, the Deathwatch are drawn from the current SM chapters thus GW really doesnt need to make a Codex: Xenos Hunters. I love the Ordo Xenos and have employed Deatwatch KillTeams in my battles vs orks before but seriously doubt them getting there own codex.

    Sorry if i bust your bubble.

    wrong invicticus, they are making the codex but i agree its unnecesary as it is.

    I think all you would need for Xenos Hunters is a variant list of Daemon/WitchHunters/Space Marines.

    Think -
    Updated (to fit new SM rules - DW captain cost etc) Deathwatch rules
    Ability to field proper Ordo Xenos army -
    Deathwatch with captain - HQ
    Deathwatch without - Elites
    Inducted Marine/Guard squads - Troops
    Inquisitorial Stormtroopers - Troops
    Deathwatch Attack Bikes? - Fast Attack
    Deathwatch HB w/Suspensor squad - Heavy Support
    Orbital Strikes - Heavy

    Basically swapping Grey Knights with Deathwatch marines.

    (See my Gallery for reasons why I want to know, that's my Combat Patrol - but would've also like to see a Deathwatch squad in Kill-team - I mean, you can't take a Deathwatch Kill-team in the game of the same name? :hmm: )

    oh, and Inquistors, forgot about them

    And of course the niggly little bits like being able to give your troops True grit, but if they become Deathwatch, they lose it (I believe anyway, as it states that their profiles don't change and special rules don't apply - :hmm: again)

    and loads more.

    The most recent I've heard though is that we may be waiting till 2006 until Xenos.

    (Tyranids and Eldar/Orks first I believe - Eldar bringing Craftworld into the main Codex - but once again - who knows? There was a rumour flying about that Chaos Dwarves were gonna be redone as an Evil Contingent freebie ala Kislev a while ago, but we all know that's just speculation - although there is mention of them in more detail in a new publication which I haven't seen...

    Sadly/Fortunately (Delete as applicable) Deathwatch are not going to be in the Xenos hunters codex in the same way as GKs but instead will probably remain in the Kill team form they are now according to a interview (I think with Pete Haines) on Portent. Will see if I can find a link for you, but they didn't want CH being a carbon copy of DH but with black army as opposed to silver
