The Watch Masters of all three damage and whose crews seem panicked, of Tymatros Aleph. Sweeping down from fortresses request urgent reinforcement even frantic. Realising that these invaders orbit, the Deathwatch join the fight against from the wider Imperium, before surging must, themselves, be fleeing some other, Necron forces that have infiltrated the into battle.

They are counted as heroes even amongst the highest echelons of the Adeptus Astartes, for these men have tested their mettle against a hundred species of aliens and emerged triumphant. They have such intense charisma and ability that within the Deathwatch their every word is law. Their mission is to ensure the survival of the human race, and it not one they take lightly. No less a body than the High Lords of Terra has been known to seek their counsel — for in the business of laying low the alien, the Watch Masters are without equal.

Though they theoretically return to their original Chapter once their duties are discharged, Watch Masters usually prove so vital they are never allowed to leave their post. Often, Watch Masters shoulder their duties alone, seeking the solace of pure thought in long periods of solitude. Yet their actions send ripples throughout history, almost always for the betterment of the Imperium. I am the burning brand that banishes the shadows, the shield that holds the monsters at bay and the sword that pierces their foul black hearts.

I am oath, duty, victory. I am the Deathwatch, and my vigil shall never end. The Watch Masters hold a position of such trust and authority they have access even to the archives of the Inquisition. On a strategic level, the Watch Masters work ceaselessly to outwit and outmanoeuvre the warlords of the alien races, to stymie invasions before they occur, to bring ascendant dynasties to their knees, and to wipe out parasitic species that would otherwise infest great swathes of Imperial space. It speaks to their quality that they can actually achieve such goals in practice.

Knowledge is power, after all, and they use it well. When the Watch Masters take the field, their centuries of experience are focussed to a deadly point, a weapon specifically made for the task of slaying xenos bioforms. Wisdom is far from their only tool. They go to war girded in the finest Imperial war-tech, the artefacts they bear so precious they would make a Technomagos weep oily tears of envy.

When a Watch Master joins the fight on the front line, he cuts down his foes with a cold precision that leaves monsters and tyrants slain in his wake. Though an almost limitless source of power, the warp is a useless. Yet where ceramite and even adamantium may fail, a turbulent and terrible dimension inhabited by the malign Daemons mind trained in the psychic arts can stand firm.

The Aeldari race of the Chaos Gods. The and can wreak untold havoc upon the unwary or unprepared. Even the gross savages of the Ork race harbour deviant which a full-blown daemonic incursion pours.

These machinations of their xenos foes. Without doubt, their most powerful weapons are their minds — a Librarian can For all these reasons, Librarians must be tested and trained to the send a Kill Team surging swiftly into the heart of the foe through very limits of their endurance. Their minds must be fortified by a his control of time, or enhance their warrior powers by calling on will of adamant, their spirits girded with hate and contempt. Before they reach the ranks of the Deathwatch, Librarian battle- Certain Space Marine Chapters have a tendency towards a greater brothers face some of the most gruelling training regimes of any proportion of psychic battle-brothers.

Thus the Deathwatch Adeptus Astartes warriors. So cruel are these tests of mental and numbers more Librarians from the Blood Angels, the Blood Ravens physical endurance that some aspirants do not survive. Yet it can be and the Solar Hawks than any other Chapters amongst its ranks. Psykers draw their unnatural powers from the warp, Their powers are volatile, and sometimes unsettling, but always a that hellish other-realm that lurks behind the skin of the material potent weapon against the foul machinations of the alien hordes.

These quiet sanctums are the domains of the Librarians, and repositories of lore concerning the psychic capabilities and vulnerabilities of the alien.

From the strange spirit harvesting of the Ynnari to the mind-control powers of the Enslavers, from the Barghesi to the belligerent and terrifying Ambull, the scrolls and tomes of the Librarius can forewarn and forearm the Deathwatch before they go to war.

The forms of the xenos are beyond counting, and no few of these abominations are supernatural. The Chaplains of the Deathwatch provide this in limitless supply. Their fiery rhetoric steels the souls of their battle-brothers and fills those nearby with a desire to wreak violent vengeance. When battle is joined, the Chaplain roars praise to the Emperor as he charges headlong into seemingly unwinnable fights. He smites the vile aliens that stand before him, smashing them into the dirt one after another, his crozius arcanum crackling with blue light and his rosarius warding away the blades of the enemy like the hand of the Emperor himself.

Even those warriors whose souls are tired and bodies are broken find themselves invigorated as the fog of doubt is burned away, and the path to victory made clear once more. No matter how hideous and unnatural the xenos foe, the presence of such a redoubtable servant of the Emperor fills loyal Imperial hearts with fire.

After learning many horrible truths about the nature of the xenos menace during his tenure in the Deathwatch, he was discharged with full honours. The Chaplain returned to the Ultramarines Chapter, bringing back the secrets he had uncovered over the course of his Long Vigil. Since that fell discovery he has made it a personal crusade to prove the spirituality of Mankind superior to the perversion of religion that erupts before a Tyranid invasion.

Known as the Tyrannic War Veterans, these battle-brothers weaponise every scrap of knowledge they and their leader Cassius have uncovered, whether in the Deathwatch or in the battles beyond it.

Their unshakeable devotion to the cause, their boundless courage and their sheer expertise are critical elements in the fight to hold back the all-devouring hive fleets. Battle-brothers fall, their bodies riddled with alien spines, scorched by strange acids or blasted by ravening energies.

Lethal bio-toxins, parasitic living ammunition Apothecaries and transphasic blades all take their toll, laying even the mightiest Deathwatch heroes low. At such times, the Apothecaries come to the fore. Veteran battle- brothers who have proved themselves across dozens of war zones, these warriors are also highly trained battlefield medicae. They possess an encyclopedic knowledge of Space Marine anatomy, reinforced through subliminal indoctrination with every fragment of lore the Deathwatch have collated regarding the weapons of the xenos they fight.

In addition to this knowledge, Deathwatch Apothecaries have all the necessary tools to treat their wounded battle-brothers. Built into one vambrace is an auto-sanctified surgical device known as a narthecium.

Working to support the rapid coagulation and healing properties of Adeptus Astartes biology, Deathwatch Apothecaries can typically restore all but the most sorely wounded comrades to combat efficiency within minutes.

Those who have been wounded unto death receive a different treatment. It is through this precious substance that new Space Marines are created, and while many Chapters are willing to make the honourable sacrifice of living bodies to the Deathwatch, none would cede them their genetic future.

Deathwatch - Deathwatch Core Rulebook

The Apothecaries of the Deathwatch have an additional duty to their counterparts from other Chapters, and it is veiled in utmost secrecy. It falls to the Deathwatch Apothecaries to recover samples of each xenospecies they encounter, from carcasses of fallen warrior clades to canisters of their bio-acids, toxic compounds and nerve poisons.

Through careful study they learn to better know and detest their foes, and to counteract their unclean abilities upon the battlefield. This information is shared, at least in part, with the Ordo Xenos, who in turn provide the Deathwatch with their own gathered intelligence upon the nature of the alien.

These heroes of the Imperium lead the Deathwatch into the thick of the fight, binding their Kill Teams together into armies of black-clad killers whose mission is the systematic annihilation of the enemy force. Each Watch Captain is given jurisdiction over four Kill Teams, including their vehicles and the battle-brothers that attend them. After all, every Kill Team boasts an array of radically different individuals hailing from all over the galaxy.

Without a guiding hand, the resultant clashes of culture and ideology could become a liability — but with the guidance of a natural leader, each team is forged into a weapon far greater than the sum of its parts. No warrior reaches such esteemed heights without having proven himself in a dozen theatres of war. Many Watch Captains were once in command of a Space Marine company, and some found promotion within the Deathwatch, their conduct so exemplary they rose to this rank.

Regardless of their history, they think of little else than how best to slay those forces that threaten the Imperium. They do so not only by launching pinpoint strikes, but also by conducting the resultant battles themselves.

Armed with an arsenal of specialist wargear, at close quarters they can fell the strongest xenos goliaths. Though they have only joined the ranks of the Deathwatch in the wake of the Ultimaris Decree, several Primaris battle-brothers have already earned the rank of Watch Captain.

Brother Lyone of the Novamarines, for example, joined the garrison of the Null Breach watch fortress as an Intercessor. Within six months he had taken such a toll upon the Orks of Calverna that they feared him as Da Black Butcha, while his brothers took to calling him Orksbane.

Primaris Watch Captain Lyone assumed the mantle of command, and has excelled himself ever since. Other figures, such as Barradan of Fort Excalibris and Denassio of Mortguard, have also made names for themselves in battle against myriad xenos threats. Mastering the arts of battle as a mortal, then a Space Marine, and finally as an officer of the Deathwatch, he has become a supreme weapon in the fight against the xenos.

Hailing from the violent tribal world of Watch Captain Artemis Posul, Chapter Planet of the Mortifactors, Artemis had once been champion of a warrior culture that believed a man could inherit the strength of the dead by devouring their remains.

Eventually, his fellow tribesmen attacked him en masse, seeking to eat his corpse and thereby gain his power. When the recruiting operatives of the Mortifactors eventually found him, his body was rent by a dozen grievous wounds and he lay dying atop a mound of the attackers he had slain.

Nonetheless, with the ministrations of the Mortifactors Apothecaries, he was healed to full strength and ready to begin his training as a Scout within the month. Artemis has repaid this debt to his Chapter many times over. The harsh lessons he learned upon Posul were refined and focused by the Mortifactors, and his killer instinct made him a natural hunter and slayer of foes.

Just as he was plucked from mortal life by his Chapter, Artemis was taken from his battle-brothers when the Deathwatch took notice of his knack for detecting and slaying alien life forms. Now he applies his talents to search-and-destroy missions, leading Kill Teams of the finest alien hunters in the Imperium. During his training with the Deathwatch, Artemis learned to harness the ferocity of his soul alongside the blade and the bolter.

Now he goes into battle with a controlled intensity that lends him strength and surety that even the direst alien threat cannot daunt. Artemis fights with a thrumming power sword and a lethal combi- flamer known as Hellfire Extremis, which fires bursts of bio- alchemical poison inimical to all forms of life.

He carries a stasis bomb as a weapon of last resort, a hand-thrown explosive that turns time itself into an inescapable prison. Watch Captain Artemis has been instrumental in many great victories over the xenos foe.

He played a critical role in triggering the civil war that destroyed Waaagh! Thrashfang, and in defeating the Enslaver plague on Tarrenthorst with a cyclonic barrage. Most recently he went into battle upon the crystal moon of Coheria, where he battled the infamous Aeldari seer known as Eldrad Ulthran.

Harking back to the single-armament squads of the Great Crusade, every Intercessor is armed with one of several marks of bolt rifle. These weapons boast superior range and stopping power to even the holy boltgun, allowing Intercessor Squads to level withering storms of firepower that annihilate many enemies before they can even bring their own guns into range.

Amongst most Space Marine Chapters, Intercessors form part of the main battle line. Their role in the Deathwatch echoes this in microcosm, for they form the backbone of the Fortis Kill Teams, or else deploy as compact teams of Intercessors from different Chapters. In the first instance the Primaris battle-brothers were incorporated by squad type; Intercessors joined with Intercessors, Reivers with Reivers and so on, bringing with them the practices and specialities of their Chapters but still fulfilling their traditional tactical battlefield roles.

Naming this tactic the Fortis Kill Team, Watch Master Mordelai aimed to create the Primaris equivalent of the Aquila Kill Team, basing its structure around a core of Intercessors to provide durability and firepower. He then introduced a Reiver for stealth and terror tactics, an Aggressor for close-range overwhelming strength, an Inceptor for swift scouting duties, and a pair of Hellblasters whose plasma incinerators could complement the firepower of their battle-brothers and bring down the largest foes.

The template of the Fortis Kill Team, often augmented with a Repulsor transport tank, spread rapidly from one watch fortress to the next, and new tactics and specialisations are constantly being experimented with as the Primaris Space Marines become ever more integral to the Deathwatch.

Upon Inceptors landing, they raise a sweeping storm of fire with their brutally effective assault bolters or terrifying plasma exterminators. Hails of mass-reactive shells and searing plasma bolts spew from their barrels, blasting apart everything in their vicinity in a tornado of gore and sun-bright energies. Inceptors employ their speed and punishing firepower to launch advance strike missions.

They slam down into the midst of the foe to slaughter command personnel and destroy rear-line strategic assets, before leaping away from retribution in huge, rocket- assisted bounds. They are deployed by Space Marine Chapters for beachhead clearance operations, diversionary raids and decapitating strikes, relishing the opportunity to perfect each new role. The Deathwatch have found ample use for squads of Inceptors amongst their ranks.

Given the element of surprise, and a clear approach corridor, they can perform a similar role to Purgatus Kill Teams. The Onyx Patrol and Watcher Keep, in particular, have also found great success pairing their Inceptors with Venator Kill Teams, the two elements combining their speed and firepower into a hard-hitting and strategically flexible whole.

Such tactics have proven the bane of craftworlders and Drukhari alike, and have sealed the complete extermination of the Masque of the Sudden Exclamation.

When they fight as part of a Fortis Kill Team, Inceptors fulfil a somewhat different role. The speed afforded by their heavy jump packs allows them to operate as forward scouts for their battle- brothers, moving at the forefront of their Kill Team to spy out Brother Donario watched the scrolling wireframe enemy locations, or ascending to commanding positions where projected onto his auto-senses, reading the terrain and they can spy out the wider strategic picture.

They are equally blink-selecting target runes as the ground rushed up to adept at reacting swiftly to developing situations, jetting across the meet him. He felt the savage kick of his deceleration, and crush armour plate like foil. He dismissed both, Inceptor battle-brothers from certain Chapters have become swinging his assault bolters up and depressing their especially prized amongst the Deathwatch.

The noble selflessness firing runes. Crude voices roared words of panic and role. Those Watch Masters furnished with an abundance of such confusion. Thus, each Hellblaster must be ready to servants. It is the job of the Hellblasters to eradicate such concentrate their fire upon such targets to the exclusion of all else, abominations.

Hellblasters do not risk self-sacrifice single-armament fire support teams. The entire squad carries lightly, for they recognise their value to the Imperium of Man, but potent plasma incinerators, directing these weapons against they will chance death without a second thought when the stakes priority targets that threaten the advance of the Adeptus Astartes. Often a squad of Hellblasters will be all that stands between a Considering the plethora of monstrosities fielded by xenos armies, it is no surprise that almost every watch fortress has a standing requisition order for Hellblasters.

Many Watch Captains prefer to field these warriors as Guilliman intended, lacing small squads of them in amongst more varied Kill Teams to provide reliable close- range fire support. Indeed, the watch fortresses of Doombreak, Furor Shield and Indomitus Point have taken to using Hellblasters much like lighter, more manoeuvrable Devastator Squads in order to deal with the hulking Tyranid and greenskin monstrosities they face.

When fielded as part of a Fortis Kill Team, Hellblasters adopt a protective role. More than one watch fortress has already started fielding Fortis Kill Teams that include a higher proportion of Hellblasters amongst their ranks, pairing them with Malleus Kill Teams to annihilate heavily armoured enemies at both long range and close quarters. Those battle-brothers drawn from the Imperial Fists, for example, demonstrate a particular talent for knocking out enemy siege engines with their plasma incinerators, coupled with a stubborn determination to do their duty no matter the cost.

By comparison, those from the Iron Hands have the ability to rapidly cogitate the changing target priority values of the enemies around them, while Scythes of the Emperor Hellblasters are as skilled as they are ruthless in exterminating Tyranid bio-horrors. An experienced Watch Captain will seed in the most appropriate Hellblaster battle-brothers to each Fortis Kill Team, dependent upon qualities such as these, and upon the enemy they are likely to face.

Living up to their designation, Aggressors fists make short work of those enemies foolish form the most belligerent of all Primaris enough to engage them hand-to-hand, while Space Marine squads. Indeed, the relentless advance of an Aggressors have seen considerable use by Aggressor Squad is a psychological weapon Watch Companies that face lightly armoured in its own right, for panic spreads quickly but numerous xenos foes.

When the foe where their pugnacious suite of weaponry can linebreakers to crack enemy strongholds turns to fight him, he prevails. Conversely, when armed with the incoming fire of the foe.

In either case, their crushing lead the advance of the Deathwatch. Skull-helmed terror troops that strike from the shadows with When the Reivers strike, they do so in whatever way will best devastating force, Reivers embody the most frightening and spread terror and panic through the enemy ranks.

Hurled clusters inhuman aspects of the Adeptus Astartes. They are masters of of shock grenades pump out savage cacophonies of mind- stealth, slipping deep behind enemy lines or dropping secretly onto shredding sound and bewildering sprays of hololithic imagery planets weeks in advance of any other Imperial forces. However, intended to terrify and confuse.

Then they launch their assault in through flesh and bone. The strike of a single squad of Reivers is shocking and terrifying style. Their Mk X Phobos armour boasts auto-dampened servomotors and virtually silent power plants, The Deathwatch have found numerous uses for Reivers.

Such warriors excel against ill- prognosticator spirits and other techno-arcana. These allow them disciplined or superstitious xenos races, who scatter in abject terror to see in multiple spectra over great distances, track audio and life when their attack begins. When faced with the less comprehensible signs of enemy sentries, and rapidly predict patrol routes and the psychology of alien races such as the Tyranids or Necrons, Reivers like to ease their infiltration duties. Others traverse even ambush-killers are a substantial boon to their battle-brothers.

That the most treacherous terrain using grapnel guns and high-tensile is not to say that teams of Reivers cannot have a deadly impact adamantine climbing lines, allowing them to approach through against such inhuman foes.

Fort Prescience has found particular territory that their foes have discounted as wholly impassable. In success in its battle against Hive Fleet Leviathan by combining these ways do Reivers attack from unexpected quarters, the better Reivers from the Raven Guard, Hawk Lords and Lamenters and to shock and disorient.

Silent as ghosts they slipped through the shattered window. Stained-glass shards ground beneath their careful footfalls, but not a single fragment cracked. One by one, the Deathwatch Reivers loped through the shadows of the high galleries and took up position, backs pressed to crumbling pillars. Heavy bolt pistols were unshrouded. Combat blades whispered from sheathes. Shock grenades were primed, runic counters cycling swiftly downward. Below, the Kroot mercenaries were oblivious.

They sat around their cook-fires, roasting human flesh and cleaning out their crude firearms as they conversed in guttural clicks and croaks. On the balcony, the Reiver Sergeant raised a hand, four fingers extended. A single Kroot looked up, its attention snagged by the scatter of projectiles that sailed from the gallery.

Its eyes widened and its beak opened to screech a warning, but its cry was drowned out by a heart-stopping eruption of light and sound. The next second the Deathwatch struck, Reivers launching themselves over the marble railing and dropping feet first, heavy bolt pistols thundering.

Avian aliens burst in bloody sprays, gore spattering those still staggering, blind and terrified, through the mayhem. Roaring amplified battle cries, the Reivers butchered their panicked victims, blasting open skulls and hacking out throats until barely a handful of fleeing Kroot remained. The Reivers let them go, the better to spread word of terrifying, ghostly killers through the xenos ranks….

The vast experience of Their skill at arms has been honed in despair of eternal war, but also the most these Veterans is never wasted. When his decades of gruelling warfare, and further sinister foes of all — those breeds of xenos company is embroiled in a war against an refined over the course of their Long Vigil. Though the draws breath. Watch Masters with strategic observations This breadth of experience only widens to optimise their deployment.

The Veterans of the Deathwatch are over their service in the Deathwatch, selected from those who excel at killing lending a perspective that makes common monstrous foes. These Veterans have cause a weapon, and conventional strife fought alien armies on a hundred seem trivial.

They have stood firm in the a whole. Rival Chapters, forced into an in the cold void of space and path of tidal waves of alien flesh, infiltrated adversarial position, may find themselves through the ruins of cities laid low. Even so, physical ability is not in a Kill Team work together to find a the only criteria by which they are judged solution.

In this way the steel-strong - Veteran Brother Lauraedian worthy of joining the Deathwatch. The Veteran Assault Marines sent to the Deathwatch are melee experts beyond compare.

Many have put down looming alien monstrosities with no more than a combat knife and gut instinct. Once seconded to a watch fortress, these killers are armed with a profusion of weaponry and equipped with a comprehensive knowledge of alien anatomies that makes them hideously effective. The Vanguard Veterans face xenos beasts face-to-face, and their blades find their mark with unerring precision.

Close combat is not the only means by which the Vanguard Veteran elevates his Kill Team in the arts of war. Bounding across the wilderness of alien worlds and through dying metropolises in a series of long leaps, these warriors use their powerful jump packs to reach high vantage points, looking down upon the disposition of the foe as a tactician looks upon a cartograph.

To do so takes immense skill, for such warriors make themselves tempting targets, but this is a quality the Vanguard Veterans have in abundance. Some Vanguard Veterans range far from their squads during battle, trusting to their experience and independence to complete covert operations that a larger team would find impossible, striking hard and fast from the gloom before moving on just as swiftly.

The most gifted at this approach hail from the Raven Guard — it is said Edryc Setorax made over forty kills in the Great Pit of Ghosar Quintus with neither friend nor foe aware of his proximity. Some, such as those from the Flesh Tearers, take a far more bombastic approach. Courageous, some would say to the point of insanity, these warriors hurl themselves to the forefront of the battle no matter the odds.

With every thunderous sweep of their weapons, they hurl broken xenos bodies through the air in sprays of gore. Others, cooler headed and more strategic, lead their brethren in a concerted charge. For these warriors, timing is everything — a premature assault might be gunned down or torn apart before the Deathwatch can strike true, but a well-chosen attack can break a xenos battle line in a storm of shimmering blades and slashing claws.

Vanguard Veterans play a key role in Dominatus Kill Team tactics. He stomps to battle armour affords it legendary power and masterpieces are an inspiring sight, and bedecked in the finest armour type ever resilience.

Heavy-gauge plasteel and their brethren will fight all the harder to created by Mankind. Terminator armour ceramite plates are supported by a complex honour them. The most common weapon is said to incorporate a minute sliver of the system of servo-motors, fibre bundles, they bear is the storm bolter, able to lay armour of the Emperor himself.

The armour is bulky, but move, and often twinned with a power that sometimes sees the wearer walk still allows the wide range of movement fist capable of splitting even wraithbone. It incorporates an inbuilt weapons — assault cannons with such a hit from a lascannon or heavy ordnance.

No subtle ploy is this, to be played ensuing victory will be all the sweeter. Bolters thundering, engines out over the course of days, but a sudden and startling assault. Key to the lethal effectiveness of the Deathwatch is their ability to surge swiftly into battle and strike precisely where and when they will have the greatest impact.

Perhaps if the being that came to be known as Xenomortis had understood what would become of him, he would have chosen death instead.

Known only by the motto that appears upon his scrollwork, Xenomortis lost his identity long ago. Theories abound as to why. The most enduring is that this venerable machine could store only so much information within his bionically enhanced mind, and that the hatred he bears for the alien is so profound that he has put aside all knowledge other than that which pertains to its destruction. This claim gains credence with every engagement, for Xenomortis always seems to pursue the course that brings the swiftest doom to the alien.

His plan of attack is invariably directed at the lynchpin of the enemy host and his weapon requisitions are geared to breaking the specific breed of xenos that forms it. It is said his wrath is pure enough to stave off death forever, though the Chaplains of the Deathwatch worry that madness may claim him instead — the blood of a thousand alien species has anointed every square inch of his form, yet still it is not enough to quench his violent obsession.
