New rumors coming in this morning from White Dwarf #108 seem to point to either Deathwatch or CHAOS SPACE MARINES! Come see the teaser.

We had been hearing sweet morsels of rumors about both new Chaos and also Deathwatch over the past two months or so.

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.

 

But this little teaser from the White  Dwarf team could literally mean either:
