Yesterday at games day both Mat ward and Robin Cruddace said that there were no future plans to develop a new alien hunter codex. Mat also denied a new 3 ordo book but did say that Both current Ordo will be looked at. Hope this dispel any rumours from white dwarf 303 saying that there would-be.

You want to play deathwatch either get the DW rpg or use sternguard.

Pretty much thats all the Ordo Xenos and Deathwatch were.. normal marines with a fancy paintjob and ammo... so prtty much, as pointed out, Sternguard... not worth making a codex for anymore.

Or maybe introduce some new imperial agents? Bounty hunters etc Maybe not a full Codex but maybe a small supplement in WD or online?

So if Death Watch = Sternguard, how could one make a Death Watch army out of them?

(Sorry, I've been keeping up with 40K over the last 2 years or so and I don't have any of the new books.)

and take up the precious space used by jervis johnson!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, surely you can't be serious??, where else is he going to convince us that £25 for 10 plastic models is amazing value for money and everyone buys them, and only poopheads don't?

do deathwatch deploy armies?, everything I've heard is small strike teams, 1 or 2 squads at most, maybe allot less.

Yeah, all they ever deploy is one or two squads. The whole point is that almost every member of the kill-team is a captain, sergeant, etc. Fluff-wise, the Inquisition would need to strip pretty much every chapter of their best soldiers and leaders to create an army of Deathwatch teams. There's no point to them having a codex, because they'd be woefully underpowered compared to what they represent in the fluff (but hey, this is GW, so what else is new?).

The Deathwatch will only ever deploy a single Kill-Team to one area at a time (though how large an "area" is is anybody's guess). Kill-Teams consist of between three and 12 members.

Making an entire army of Deathwatch Marines would just be weird and counter-fluff. Not... that that's a bad thing or wrong.
