I am posting again.

DEATHWATCH GETS A HANDHELD FRAG CANNON?

The nerd rage is too much for me to deal with.
What's wrong with that??

Because up until this very second, they only existed on Furioso Dreadnoughts.
The Inquisition's boys always get the secret stuff.

As a BA player I've been hoping for this for years and now some dumb cunt in fancy armour has it.

I have more to say but it just isn't worth it and has nothing to do with the topic of this thread. At least the models look tits.

The IMPERIAL FIST is carrying a Frag Cannon.
Do I really stand corrected? He's a member of the Deathwatch and Imperial Fists as a whole can't take the weapon. Deathwatch have received a handheld frag cannon and it happens to be an Imperial Fist holding it.

Not a correction. More an emphasis. I would have rather seen a BA Devastator (that would have been something else, right?)

It feels like every other model got wargear that was very proper for their chapter.

And then the Imperial Fist, who are supposed to be masters of fortification, and have their Bolter Drill, gets a weapon that their chapter has never used.

Ok so now we have the entire line-up for Deathwatch: Overkill. In it we will get;

9 x Deathwatch Marines
1 x Deathwatch Terminator
-1 x Teleport Homer
1 x Deathwatch Biker
-1 x Servo-skull

12 x 1st/2nd Gen Hybrids
8 x 4th Gen Hybrids w/Autoguns
4 x 3rd Gen Hybrids w/Autoguns
2 x 3rd Gen Hybrids w/Grenade Launchers
2 x Purestrain Genestealers
2 x Hybrids w/Mining Laser
2 x Aberrants w/Power Hammer
2 x Aberrants w/Power Pick
2 x Genestealer Familiars
1 x Magus
1 x Primus
1 x Patriarch
Updated the list of models after re-reading one of the images. So in total we are getting 11 Deathwatch figures,2 support minis and 39 Genestealer figures.

No way this game costs less than £100. Calth cost £95 and it had less figures than this does.

Holy shit those Space Marines are just about as stereotypical examples of their Chapters as it is possible to be. :laugh:

I'll admit I was confused! :laugh:

That makes a lot more sense brother. Fully agreed.

I would hope it's assault 1.
Whatever it is, I have a feeling it will trickle down to our beloved Bangles eventually. Otherwise nerd rage may completely take me and I will disappear into its depths.

Proof of board game:

I feel like I saw somewhere that it was $160 US, but I can't seem to locate the source of that information :/

If that is the case then it will be £115. And at 3rd party retailers that is about £103.50 at 10% off, £92 at 20% off and £86.25 at 25% off. I know of nowhere that does any further discounts.

Interesting price gap. Guess that means that this will be £90 at 10% off, £80 at 20% off and £75 at 25%.

My first thought was frag cannon, but then quickly changed to being a hb with some sort of recoil dampener as deathwatch used to have move and fire heavy bolters. Probably a frag cannon though but guess we will find out in a a week. TBH though it doesnt worry me though because despite being a long term BA fan and on and off again player for years Im more pissed with the steriotypical blood angels vanguard vet. In fact despite loving sallies, DA, BA and SW and having models from all four armies, Im far more impressed by the fist to the point that hes my fave of the lot because hes the least chapter steriotyped of the lot

The picture's caption actually says frag cannon. Plus the ammo feed looks identical to a Dreadnought's frag cannon.
