Episode 227: Ninth Edition Deathwatch
The books just keep on coming, and this time we take a look at the new Deathwatch supplement. When first announced as an add-on to the standard Space Marine codex, we weren’t sure GW could pull this off, given how different it was from a typical Astartes army. But have they managed to thread the needle? How does this army work manage to mesh mixed-unit kill teams with combat doctrines, Primaris marines, and all the other tools from the main codex? Most importantly, does it feel like a Deathwatch army, or just black-and-silver marines? We take a look at the book and try to answer those questions and more. Also, news and new releases, your listener mail, hobby progress, and a Morale Phase with no mercy!
