The New Deathwatch Battle Their Way Into Warhammer 40,000 With Death Masque

August 6, 2016 by brennon

Games Workshop have now added the new Deathwatch Pre-Orders to their website allowing you to pick up this new force for use in Warhammer 40,000. Let’s kick off with the main focus of all this with the new boxed game containing Eldar and Deathwatch Space Marines called Death Masque

Death Masque

This boxed set pits the sides against each other in a bitter war where Captain Artemis is taking on Eldrad, one of the greatest Eldar to ever live.

Eldrad

“Eldrad Ulthran, the most skilled of the Eldar’s prophets and one of the most powerful psykers in the galaxy, whose existence has spanned ten millennia, has put into motion a series of incredible events. Descending upon the planet of Port Demesnus, his intention is to seize its crystal moon, Coheria, for a forbidden ritual capable of awakening a slumbering god…

Captain Artemis
Watch Captain Artemis – born into violence, recruited into the Mortifactors, his talents in the art of detecting and slaying the merest hint of xenos taint saw him plucked from his Chapter and sworn to lead Kill Teams of the Deathwatch. The first to respond to the distress signals from Port Demesnus, and the first to realise Eldrad Ulthran’s motives, he has diverted his strike force to Coheria.

The battle for this moon, and the events that transpire, will send shocking reverberations throughout the galaxy.”

As well as these two hero models you’ll get two elite fighting forces which will be made up of fancy Deathwatch Space Marines…

Deathwatch Kill Team

…their epic looking Dreadnought, straight from the pages of the Fantasy Flight Games RPG book.

…and of course some howling and whooping Harlequins for the Eldar. When Space Marines are involved you need to send your best killers.

Other models included within the set are the likes of Vanguard Veterans with jump packs for the Deathwatch as well as a Deathjester, Voidweaver and Skyweaver for the Eldar side.

You will also get your hands on missions for these factions to fight through, formations that allow you to use each force and additionally your own softback rulebook to get you started.

Books & Trinkets!

As well as this there is the all important Codex: Deathwatch coming your way.

Inside you will find all of the rules you need to get playing with this elite force of killers. As well as that Data Cards are available to buy giving you access to the things you need to run awesome missions tailored to their fighting style.

Last but not least they also have these rather funky looking Deathwatch Dice which I think would be a good buy for anyone, not just a Deathwatch player. Very nice indeed.

As with most of these boxes we would assume that you can pick this up for a limited time before it leaves shelves. Then, the models from the box will get themselves a release in separate boxes for you to pick up later down the line.

Are the Deathwatch calling to you?
