DeathWatch rules in the next WD
Hello everyone !!
DW and Harlies are getting rules from the WD :
Across the run of the Psychic Awakening books, almost every Warhammer 40,000 faction has had its time in the spotlight as the narrative of a galaxy in turmoil has encompassed them. As well as the story, each faction has received rules updates to give you more options on the battlefield.
Two factions – the Deathwatch and the Harlequins – aren’t in the books, but remain forces to be reckoned with. As such, they’re getting new rules like everyone else, but in their case across two issues of White Dwarf. First up are the xenos-hunting Space Marines of the Deathwatch, coming your way in White Dwarf 453. Let’s take a look at what’s coming.
This update brings the Deathwatch in line with the rest of their Adeptus Astartes brothers. They gain the Angels of Death suite of abilities, including Shock Assault, Bolter Discipline and Combat Doctrines.
This is only enhanced by their new Stratagems, which are the same ones gained by other Chapters, putting the Deathwatch on par with the rest of their brethren.
our Intercessors have a trio of Stratagems that give each of their bolt rifles additional abilities. Boltstorm gives auto bolt rifles automatic hits within half range, while Intercessors with stalker bolt rifles can fire at Characters and cause mortal wounds using Target Sighted. Rapid Fire turns bolt rifles into Rapid Fire 2 weapons, doubling the firepower of a squad armed with them – and with Bolter Discipline and the Tactical Doctrine active, this doubles again at close range, for a storm of armour-piercing shots that few foes will survive.
Finally, the update gives Deathwatch Intercessor Sergeants new weapons options, including hand flamers, power fists and thunder hammers, providing you with loads of new tools to use in purging the xenos from the Imperium!

Available the 2 may digitally.

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.
