Aliens, Heretics, and Daemons scheme from the shadows to oppose the Imperium of Man, but the Space Marines of the Deathwatch are sworn to hunt down and destroy all enemies of the Emperor.

Christopher Witt added it Mar 26, Jayson added it Oct 01, Iconic tyranid creatures like Raveners, Lictors and Tyrant Guards make their appearance, as well as the relative newcomer, the Trygon, a gigantic tyranids that burrows underground and ambushes you with scything claws.
The aliens section is the most expansive, because there are a lot of aliens, and the Deathwatch is pretty primarily concerned with killing aliens.

Ryan rated it really liked it Jul 14, Brandt Bjornsen rated it it was ok May 23, Michal rated it liked it Jun 10, I would really like a book that just has every alien species and insane cultist archetype that the Imperium carves up on a regular basis, but Mark of the Xenos is nonetheless a very nice book with a hell of a lot of adversaries.
The forces of Chaos are well represented, if you include the Daemon Prince and basic Chaos Marines of the core book. V3n0M93 added it Jun 09, Graham Bailey rated it really liked it Jun 07, In Deathwatch, creatures are divided into Troops, Elites and Masters.
Moom added it Nov 02, Elites are creatures that are equivalent, alone, to a single Space Marine, and Masters are creatures that are so powerful you need the whole kill-team wailing on them in xenoos to kill them. Remain vigilant Learn the nature of your foes, that you might better destroy them Ma Purge the mrk alien from the stars with bolt, shell, and flame The Enemies of the Emperor are many Return to Book Page. Gambrinus rated it liked it Mar 10, Creatures Anathema added a lot of content for Dark Heresywith Orkz and other aliens aplenty, but when Deathwatch came around, FFG shone a huge spotlight on the hitherto under-represented Tyranid and Tau.
Daniel Eaton marked it as to-read Sep 07, Jonathan rated it really liked it Apr 27, Marco Ambrosini rated it it was amazing Mar 01, Larry Kenney rated it liked it Jan 22, Because the Tau have some human worlds under their control, you can also use the stat blocks for Imperial Guard or human heretics to represent Human Tau forces too, to make things even more interesting.

References to trademarks and copywritten material are included for review and commentary use only and are not intended as any kind of challenge. For the Tau, we get a Broadside Battlesuit as an Elite, armed with HUGE ion cannons, a Tau commander Master with a ton of staying power and leadership functions, the inspirational but incredibly vulnerable Ethereal Master, and Drones and Pathfinders for troops.
Orkz are goofy, loutish, brutal green humanoids that are actually fungal in nature and have a weird as hell ecosystem and they barter using teeth. A few seem weirdly more in line with Rogue Trader adversaries.

Derrick rated it liked it Nov 15, Razielivaldi marked it as to-read Dec 29, The book is divided into four fairly simple chapters: We get sent a lot of email, so we can’t promise we’ll be able to respond to everything.
Purge the vile alien from the stars with bolt, shell, and flame The Enemies of the Emperor are many Because you get a Zoanthrope in this book, you also get some Tyranid psyker psychic powers and psyker rules here. Joshua Rollins added it Apr 18, Next up we have the Tyranids, a race of monstrous beings whose every technology is completely biological, controlled by a Hivemind so powerful that it can blind psychics. However, a greater focus on xenos and unique opponents would be better than the quantity of material about chaos, particularly when many of the chaos opponents could be constructed using Black Crusade or other works.
It does a great job of expanding the lore of each of the adversaries and their role in the Jericho Reach, and confrontations not only with the Achillus Crusade, but also against each other. Kaloyan rated it it was amazing Deathwarch 16, So to talk about the critters in the book itself. No trivia or quizzes yet. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. The renegades chapter has a lot of cool off-the-cuff characters like Inquisitor Hakk, who could be an ally or an enemy, but is a nutcase regardless of what side deathwxtch have him on, as well as a heretek who literally eats Space Marines.
Up front, I will state my only grievance with the book.
