Deathwatch: Overkill part 2……………..

Posted: March 7, 2016 in Blood angels, Genestealer Cult, space marine, Space Wolves

On the 5th of march Deathwatch: Overkill hit the shelves of gaming stores across the world. My copy arrived in the post in the morning from the nice people at Element Games.

After ripping open the box and drooling over the nice new plastic models I put it to one side and carried on with everyday life. Yesterday evening I had a chance to look at everything properly and read through the rules.

As you can see the box has a nice glossy finish, it is the “standard” GW sized box (Age Of Sigmar/ Dark Vengeance) with pictures of the painted models around the edge of the back box.

Inside are the rule book and assembly guide, as well as a range ruler, 6 dice, a set of character cards, a set of cult ambush cards, and 8 board sections. The rules Only take up 7 pages (of which part of the page is taken up with background info). 4 pages make up a ‘eavy metal colour spread on the models. And 20 pages make up the 9 missions. The boards are the same quality as the ones found in Space Hulk complete with the Embossed details.

On to the models, you get 11 Deathwatch members all drawn from different chapters (some of which have separate chapter shoulder pads). All of the models are covered in their chapter iconography, with the Salamanders Terminator and the Blood Ravens Librarian stand out as two of my favourite models!

Next  we have the sprue with the Patriarch, Magus, Primus and Familiars. Out of all the models the Patriarch has been around for a few years in the form of the Broodlord in the tyranid list, both the Magus and the Familiars have been missing for some years, and the Primus is a new strain of Hybrid.

Finally we have the sprue with all the other cult models (their are two of these in the box) It is made up of

1st and 2nd generation Hybrids (on 32mm bases) x 12.

3rd and 4th generation Hybrids (on 25mm bases)  x 16.

Purestrain Genestealers (on 32mm bases) x 2.

Abberants (on 32mm bases) x 4.

Out of all the models in the box, it is the Cult models that I am interested in more, and hopefully they will get the Mini-dex treatment like the Harlequins, Imperial Knights, Adeptus Mechanicus,and Militarum Tempestus have had.

40K rules can be found in Issues 109 and 110 of White Dwarf weekly or for free here
