Deathwatch codex review
Hello everyone !!
This week GW sent us the DeathWatch codex for review (thx).
I'll start with the fluff/illustration and then the rules.
There are a lot of very fine artwork in the book. I know this is open to interpretation but i personally liked the visual of the book. Especially all the fighting scenes that look like early 2000 comics !
There are a few tidbits of fluff on how the DW works, stay vigilent and so on..
The most interesting part is of course the Primaris question :
Here a force organisation of a fortress.
They have Primaris : Watch captain, Librarian, Chaplain (spoiler, nearly all the Primaris released yet are present in the codex)
Let's jump to the rules part !!
This codex is first a space marines codex, so you get most of the options you would find in a chapter codex.
Chapter master, captain, librarian, chaplain, all the Primaris Marines entry (but lieutenant and gravis captain), Dread, LR, Corvus.
-They get the usual special rules : Combat squad and Atsknf.
-Special issue ammunition for every bolter.
-Troops get defenders of humanity if battle forged + mission tactics (reroll wound roll of 1 against a selected type of target)
-They get some nasty stratagem against xenos.
-Multiple stratagem grating +1 to wound rolls vs a type of target.
There 4 entry that i want to look closely : Veteran squad, Intercessor squad, Terminator squad, bike squad.

Rumours: September - Deathwatch and Khârn
Howdy Guys and Girls :)
via a friendly raven ^.^
"First monthly white dwarf has the new Khârn in it (leaning forward charging).
Also a campaign type book with new rules for Chaos Space Marines. It's not a new Codex, but does have cool new rules.
Also included is the new Deathwatch Codex with Artemis Model and the new flyer for them. Looks like a mix between a tau and imperial flyer."
As always, take it with a tiny bit of salt but that one is usually pretty spot on =)
