News for April 2011
The Recurring Foe 9
A look inside Mark of the Xenos, an upcoming Deathwatch supplement
Deathwatch | Published 08 April 2011

Greetings, Deathwatch fans!

Last time, we looked at an overview of Mark of the Xenos. This week, the Mark of the Xenos design team is pleased to present the second preview for the book: the menacing Dagon Overlord. This massive Tyranid Hive Tyrant has gained a reputation amongst the forces of the Orpheus Salient as a powerful and deadly threat, a Tyranid leader that arises time and again to attack the forces of the Imperium in the Jericho Reach.

The Dagon Overlord is a great tool for GMs who want to showcase Hive Fleet Dagon and personify the Tyranid menace in a single form; created by Owen Barnes, this deadly being is just one of the many xenos organisms found in Chapter I: The Alien Threat.

Read about this vicious predator in Dagon Overlord (pdf, 956 KB), available for download on the support page, and gain the upper hand for your next foray into battle.

We’ll have more previews over the new few weeks. Stay alert for your chance to study the enemy, and look for Mark of the Xenos this spring!

Deathwatch is a roleplaying game in which players take on the roles of the bio-engineered super-soldiers known as Space Marines. United with their battle-brothers, players will complete extraordinary missions involving some of the greatest heroes and deadliest opponents the Warhammer 40,000 universe has to offer.

Is the Inquisition symbol on pages 38 and 39 spread throught the book in the same manner? The dark background symbol makes the black text difficult to read. Other than that, it looks great!

Good grief, I predict many a battle brother falling to this foe.  Great preview!  I'm looking forward to this release.

Looks cool, but I hope most of the standard 'Nids are covered before special, new variants.

A tyranid foe for whom the fight gets personal? I like this touch.
