G'day peoples. Since I first heard about the Deathwatch years ago, i've been obsessed with trying to find info on them.
To make a boring story shorter, I MUST have info on the Deathwatch! Please gimmy, gimmy, gimmy!!!
Ah-hem. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Looking for websites and fluff mainly. I know the basics, (best of the best, alien hunters, cool guns, different chapters.)
And any info on the Codex too.

Do you know the Deathwatch article from WD 306 (UK)? That's as much as there's officially on Deathwatch, as far as I know. If not, I could give you a short summary (I would edit this post).

Welcome back Gavmo,
As far as I'm aware - the Deathwatch are a relatively new invention, fluff-wise. From what I can remember, the idea of Deathwatch wasn't around back in 2nd ed (but that was a few years ago now, and we were much younger then - so it could be a memory thing) and I don't know if they were in Rogue Trader... so, from the info that I know you've gathered Gavmo, you've pretty much got all the official stuff! I'll lend you the BL novel "Kill-Team" on Saturday, a Deathwatch Marine makes an appearance in that; there was also a comic strip that ran for a awhile with a Deathwatch team as its focus (good luck finding that now though).

Apart from that, we'll have to wait til Codex AlienHunters...

What these two said sums it up.

You'll also want to check out Index Astartes Volume 2.There is a decent sized article inside loaded with fluff.

Codex:Necrons has some info about the Ordo Xenos(the branch of the =][= that the DW serves) and it's current use of Deathwatch Kill-Teams against the Necron threat.

The Inquisitor game also delves into them,and the Eisenhorn Trilogy by BL.

Thanks for the info guys.
It just feels a little disheartening that I already have most of the info on them. I must have more! And I hate having to wait the 600 years till the Codex comes out.
But I guess they have been neglecting the other races. (When was the last time you even SAW a picture of an Ork or Eldar in White Dwarf.)
And =][=Danek=][=, your Deathwatch army rocks so hard it hurts! :evilgrin:

Didn't see anyone else mention this, so Deathwatch also show up in Warriors of Ultramar and play a pretty big part.
