    IntroductionThe Deathwatch stands vigil over some of the most dangerous regions in the galaxy, sentinels against the vile forces of hostile alien races and ancient tombs best left undisturbed. The Imperium has endured for ten thousand years thanks in no small part to the secret victories of the Deathwatch over the foes that would see the Emperors realm cast down and destroyed.

To stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the Deathwatch is to hold back serried tides of inhuman foes time and again, struggling to survive against the galaxys most deadly of threats. It is an honour that each and every Deathwatch Space Marine bears with pride.
