More material... great!
i do think the system in deathwatch is pretty harsh to handle, dark heresy is lower level and feels right but Deathwatch is too epic

The group of players I have prefer the low end spectrum of Heresy, under level 5. They like the fact that if they try to go toe to toe with something it will most likely eat them and requires an indirect approach. The power level of the DW is a bit extreme for their tastes. They also feel it is more hack and slash than DH. I think this is mainly due to the whole Horde mechanic of the system.
I tried to argue that DW could be rp heavy also but the general attitude of the group is 'They are marines, they have no depth.' :: shrugs :: One of the key things to do when running a game is to listen to the players and make it fun for them, so its too clunky for my group :-p

I have used Achaylus (Pronounced Achilus) for several years for my username and my Chaos Space Marines Army "Sons of Achaylus" and all of a sudden this Title springs up out of the blue.
I had checked extensively the name Achaylus and all its forms and found none, so it leaves me to believe that someone connected to the game has spotted my username and basically pinched it for themselves.
There are no coincidences.

Either way, I can't wait to get my mitts on this book. I just recently got a copy of Daemon Hunter and I'm rather pleased, so let's hope FFG can do the line justice with its latest addition.
