Not sure how that would work to be honest. Deathwatch, as far as I know, is always used in squad-level groups. I could be way wrong about this; but I've never heard of Companies or Battaliions of DW...

My take on it would be that the way to field a DW army would be to take a normal SM army with a DW squad, and say that the Captain or Librarian leading the DW is the army commander. This would represent the DW calling in the SMs as more warm bodies to deal with a particularly virulent alien infestation - "inducted SMs" to use a parallel with other Inquisitorial Orders.

On the other hand, if you do come up with a way of including more DW squads, do tell, I'd be interested to hear it!

U could find the old chapter aproved 2003 that had rules in for death watch. There near enough the same as the current rules exept it allowed you to upgrade any member of a tacticle squaad to death watch.

Do you mean like the rules here - http://uk.games-workshop.com/spacemarines/deathwatch/1/ - from the GW site? They look identical to the rules in WD and allow you to upgrade individual members of tac, vet and command squads to DW.

Should this really belong in Kill Team forums? After all, you said you want to build a whole army! So it should probably go in Space Marine Lists

kill teams are used in squads there are no armies on them! their and elite group where various spacemarines are called sometimes at random to serve for fifty years in it....they recive extra training.....new equipment and new weapons.
only ever deployed in squads though.....you could.......have sergeants or squad memebers and give them deatwatch equipment and stats which represent them returning to there chapter and being allowed to keep the equipment......there are NO armies of deathwatch!

This sort of thing is exactly why there should be an alienhunters codex - people think the deathwatch are awesome and it's about time every other army than daemons and those with psykers had a nemesis.

Surely if the alien threat was large enough they'd calll in more members of deathwatch?

Don't give me rep, just poke My Bum ... and then give me rep.

I use a squad of Deathwatch in my army. What I did was buy the Deathwatch conversion pack from GW, and the treat the Deathwatch as a Sterguard Veterans squad. It works pretty well.

Flesh Tearers: 6-0-0
Hive Fleet Mako: 13-0-0
Farsight Enclave: 4-2-1
Death Guard: 5-0-1
