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! Organized 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. This full-color Warhammer 40K Codex features comprehensive information on the Deathwatch fortresses that defend the Imperium and the elite Space Marines that man them, plus rules for 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.
