The Deathwatch are here with a new Game, Codex & More!
via Games Workshop
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…
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.
In the Death Masque boxed game, you’ll find two forces of Citadel miniatures with which to re-create the tense battles set upon Port Demesnus. The included booklet contains 3 Echoes of War missions which allow you to play through the story, with full background explaining each battle. Full rules for all the miniatures are included, with an exclusive formation for both forces. Also included is a 208-page softback copy of Warhammer 40,000: The Rules with an exclusive Watch Captain Artemis cover.

Suffer not the alien to live.
The elite amongst the elite, carefully selected and recruited for their exceptional abilities, the Deathwatch are a thin black line, a sentinel that stands between the Imperium and alien threats unimaginable. Always outnumbered – such is the staggering scale of the hordes they face – this noble brotherhood has stood stout against countless invasions, and will face countless more.
Organised into small, elite companies plucked from Space Marine Chapters that have pledged a tithe of their strength in the struggle against the alien, the Deathwatch counts only heroes amongst its ranks. Each member has been hailed as an expert in his field even before his training as a Deathwatch operator has begun. His armour painted the blackest of hues, his Chapter icon intact upon his pauldron as a mark of respect to the Chapter that made him, the Deathwatch Space Marine and his highly-specialised Kill Team descend to the edge of destruction, there to repel whatever dire threat they face.
This 112-page, full-colour hardback Codex features:
comprehensive information on the Deathwatch fortresses that defend the Imperium and the elite Space Marines that man them;
rules for the Deathwatch miniatures, including unique army-building rules for building any of several Kill Teams suited to your play style, your collection and the task at hand – for example, a Furor Kill Team is perfect for brutal close assault with its Terminators, whereas a Venator Kill Team focuses on bikes, perfect for closing down and destroying faster enemies;
3 sets of 6 Tactical Objectives, representing the many different tasks of the Deathwatch;
uniform guides and information on the heraldry of Deathwatch Kill Teams, and a number of their fortresses;
a showcase of stunning Citadel Deathwatch miniatures.

Those new Deathwatch Sprues are loaded up! If you want to get ahold of the Special limited edition you might want to grab one while you can – it has a ton of really nice extras.
