Deathwatch: Overkill………………………..

Posted: February 22, 2016 in Blood angels, Genestealer Cult, space marine, Space Wolves

Over the past 10 years or so their have been many rumours about the deathwatch in 40k. From the 3rd elusive Inquisitor codex for 3rd/4th edition, up until the upgrade sprue for the sternguard last year.

However it was leaked the other day that February 27th will be the pre-order date for GW’s next board game Deathwatch: Overkill. featuring not only the Deatwatch Marines but also the long awaited return of…………….

Genestealer Cults!

Now back in the 1st and 2nd edition of 40K Genestealer cults had their own army lists. In fact in the 1st edition they had nothing to do with the Tyranids, but the genestealers were absorbed into the tyranids in the 2nd/3rd edition codexes. The rest of the cult was abandoned, only to appear in unofficial army lists. However are about to change, and the cult gets 39 models in the new game. Hopefully GW will turn the cult in to a full codex some time in the future.

As it stands the game contains 50 models consisting of

11 x Deathwatch Marines

1 x Genestealer Patriarch.

1 x Genestealer Magus.

1 x Genestealer Primus.

2 x Genestealer Familiars.

2 x Purstrain Genestealers.

4 x Genestealer Aberrants.

12 x 1st and 2nd Generation Hybrids.

6 x 3rd Generation Hybrids.

8 x 4th Generation Hybrids.

2 x Hybrids with Mining lasers.

I had hoped for a Space Hulk type game with boards that had the “jig” connection allowing you to combine the two game. But it seems that it will follow along the similar lines as Assassination: Execution Force and Betrayal At Calth that were released last year!
