Default Deathwatch Minigame on the Horizon?

Looks like a lot of people are reading into this teaser from the upcoming WD as heralding a Deathwatch release in the coming week.



There's a lot of things that are black and silver, but Deathwatch fit the bill without hesitation (apparently). Natfka and BoLS both report that there's going to be a boxed game a la Execution Force/BaC:

-Had it confirmed today that the Black and Silver teaser is 100% Death Watch.

-I saw the release schedule tonight.....100% Deathwatch confirmed.
Womp. Salty to be sure, here's some old stuff that might just be resurfacing in the coming days with some truth or proven total wishlisting:

Quote:
Previously a source who spoke to BoLS on condition of anonymity, said:
  • Opposition force for the Deathwatch in the Boardgame is Tyranids.
  • Look for Genestealers, Warriors, Lictors.
  • There is a “box only” Lictor Character.
  • As with Betrayal at Calth – these are standard 40K models fully usable outside the boardgame.
  • There is chatter of potential Deathwatch op-for xenos expansions for the boardgame (Orks, etc…)

Recall that the earlier set of info on the boxed game was:
  • Look for the Deathwatch to arrive in the Grimdark in 2016.
  • They will make their initial appearance in a boxed boardgame like Execution Force / Betrayal at Calth.
  • The Deathwatch models are based around a new Deathwatch upgrade sprue.
  • The sprue will contain items such the distinctive shoulderpads, and specialist equipment and weapons of the Deathwatch.
  • The Deathwatch sprue will be bundled atop the Sternguard base kit in the boardgame.
  • The game will allow for you to equip your Killteam’s weapons and equipment in a variety of ways with rules to support them all.
  • As with Betrayal at Calth – these are standard 40K models fully usable outside the boardgame.
  • There will be an opposing force the Deathwatch is pitted against with their own models in the box.
What do you think, Heresy: are we looking at a Deathwatch mini-game or something else that's black and silver?

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

It has been rumoured for a while. They are a pretty cool subject to base a game on. Hopefully it'll at least provide another great value box for someone just looking to expand their 40k force.

On Dakka, the opinion is the opponents maybe genestealer hybrids.
That would certainly get the cash out of my wallet.

That would be excellent. I thought we might see something a bit sooner when they started bringing out data slates.

I guess I can see it, but at the same time, Black and Silver also fits War Zone Fenris. There's been lots of talk in the fluff on that book that the Dark Angels (Ravenwing is Black) and the Grey Knights (Silver) will be getting some love.

Rumours over on BOLS is that Genestealer cults are confirmed as the opponent to the Deathwatch. Apparantly the box will contain an unknown number of mono-pose (think the BAs in Space Hulk) Deathwatch marines that may or may not be chapter optional (one rumour says that one particular DW marine is GeeDubs first ever dedicated Blood Ravens mini) and a number of Hybrids, a few Purestrain and a brand new box-only Broodlord.

Over a year, I'd wager. I would have posted before but it all just looked exclusively like wishlisting considering there were no picture leaks like what we had for Execution Force or Battle at Calth. This is the first time there's been any inclination from GW that it -might- be happening as far as I'm aware.

I'd rather this. The mini-games are....less than interesting to me. Not to mention I don't think we've seen a campaign release schedule interrupted by anything other than maybe AoS and this Wulfen business doesn't quite seem finished to me yet.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Their Ravenwing Detachment saw some help in the form of a rare FAQ from GW recently, but I could see fancier Formation rules as something to go with that band-aid.

TAU is rumored to be getting more, after getting two separate campaign books. In fact, it's not rumor anymore, it was spotted in White Dwarf, along with Ork updates.

So while I'm a little miffed that some codices are double dipping while others languish, I'll take it, if it means Grey Knights.
