Deathwatch may end up coming not as a codex, as was first rumored, but instead a stand alone game pitting them against Genestealer Cults. This was first whispered by Hastings over the weekend, and now there are new rumors of course to follow. This declares that the new Deathwatch models will be based on the plastic sternguard kit with a new sprue added to it.
Here was the latest rumors from 75hastings69 on Warseer. (note that I incorrectly quoted and credited Harry instead Hastings on the original post. I've since corrected it) here is a link
Please remember that these are rumors.
