I'd put money on GW releasing a new scenario for Overkill since they've done that for Execution Force and Betrayal at Calth already.

Got my half of the box, didn't want it for the game but for the GSC.
B-E-A-utiful models upon closer inspection. I love the models and will be fielding them with my Tyranids at some point.

The rules/cards/tiles all got donated to my FLGS for Dark Heresy, Necromunda, etc. They'll make good use of them.

Still waiting for my set from Triple Helix (dispatched Thursday, apparently >. &gt in the meantime I ordered a Patriarch and some Tyranid Prime parts from BitsAndKits to tide me over

Can anyone with Overkill and Calth say if the tiles match up in any way? Would make for some more interesting scenarios (and LOS-blocking!)

Not at all, BaC is heaxagonal 'zones/ on tiles that tessellate as hexagons.

DW:O has A4ish size tiles with rectangular zones

I've been playing this weekend and I love the system. Easy to learn and games can be quite fast. With different friends playing a Deathwatch marine each and another playing the Genestealer Cult. It was fun. I do wish there were line of sight rules (corners, corridors, etc). Would make it more tactical I think.

It would also be great to get new scenarios. It would be even better to get expansions. A new box with new tiles and f.e. an Ork Freeboterz troupe. New missions with tiles that you can combine with the basic game to make even more epic combat. I dont get my hopes to high as GW usually abandons these kind of games. But I think it would be a big hit. They should think about it. And going wild... perhaps... rules to make your own Deathwatch marines for the games (combining different weapons, perhaps chapter traits...). Really, the system is fun. It would be a waste not to expand on it.

Same with Betrayal at Calth. You could actually play some decent platoon-ish sized games with BaC as a core rule mechanic. Would just need to make stats for the models and their weapons.

But as you said, GW make these games and other than the recent expansions in WD/on the web, they tend to move on to the next thing.

That would be amazing if they released little expansions, like 2-4 new tiles and a couple new models and cards for both factions. But we all know GW doesn't work that way, i'd love to be surprised though. I personally would prefer a more small scale 40k game to have support, one that is played with more easy and quick to learn rules. Theres times when I work 7 days a week and I don't have the time for regular 40k. Love the setting...but not only is 40k too complicated IMO it takes longer to play altogether. I also prefer the idea of playing on these pre made and nice looking tiles I can de assemble as opposed to a giant wooden 40k board.

In the fluff of the DWO booklet they talk about another Kill Team mission against the Orks. That'd be a pretty cool expansion or sequel/prequel, especially if it meant new Ork Boyz minis on a level of quality similar to the GSC (current ones are almost a decade old).

Genestealer Cults are now also officially revealed in SH: Deathwing for PC according to games magazines who have seen the newest video footage from Focus. This preview from Gamers Global shows 1st/2nd Gen Hybrids at ~5:46. There are probably more in it.

Space Hulk content starts at 2:01 - the video contains gore & blood (NSFW) - via Herald of Sanguinius on B&C

Sorry if this has been posted before in the thread, but the rules for both the Deathwatch and Cult can now be downloaded from the site: https://www.games-workshop.com/resources/PDF/Deathwatch/40k-rules-deathwatch-en.pdf

Actually tempted to pick up the game and use the Stealer Cult in Zone Mortalis games.

You get two sprues, duplicated, for the Cultists.

The Cultist characters(Magus, Primus, Patriarch and their associated Familiars) are all their own sprue.

I really like this set of rules for the extreme ease of access. (They feel like a bit like a light version of AoS...)

I'll make some custom character cards to try to lure my boardgaming friends into playing quick table top skirmishes like InquisitorMunda/Inq28 on proper wargaming terrain.
