Games Workshop have popped up a new teaser for this weekend as Codex Adeptus Astartes: Deathwatch is on the cards for Warhammer 40,000. If you like slaughtering xenos with a crack team of Space Marines this could be the force for you.
It will be interesting to see how they work as a faction on the tabletop. While running a complete army of Deathwatch sounds like a fun idea I don’t think it would work too well. I imagine that folks will be taking these Deathwatch marines and dropping them into larger forces as allies potentially.
Cleanse The Xenos
Of course we do have a range of plastic Deathwatch miniatures out there already for folks to use from Overkill. It seems to be a sensible guess that they will now release these as clamp pack figures on their own.
The Deathwatch have always been a very intriguing organisation and I like the idea that while they might not like each other all of these Chapters have had to band together against a common foe on their secret missions.
If nothing else making these miniatures available separately would be good for those of us who play the Deathwatch RPG from Fantasy Flight Games. We could then have our own models to show off on the tabletop!
I’m sure that we’ll learn more as the week goes on and we start to see snippets of what lies ahead. With White Dwarf now waiting until September for its big relaunch we’re likely to only have their Blog for answers as to the future of this book and the models you’re seeing here.
How do you think this will work?
