A report from the Deathwatch launch at Gen Con 2010
Deathwatch | Published 27 August 2010

Greetings, Deathwatch fans!
The Deathwatch Core Rulebook premiered at Gen Con 2010 on August 5! I was definitely not prepared for the massive response from the 40K RPG fans... it was a huge ball of amazing and awesome rolled into one. There was a huge 16-foot-tall image of a Space Marine from the book highlighting where to go to find out more about the Deathwatch RPG, and lines for the book were full of some really excited fans anticipating taking on the role of a Space Marine in an RPG for the first time!
I spoke to quite a few fans at the Deathwatch seminars throughout the con, ably aided by Deathwatch author Andrea Gausman. Andrea’s presence was very helpful, not only because she worked on the core rulebook, but she is also the author of the Deathwatch GM’s Kit and the forthcoming The Emperor Protects adventure book. Unveiling the game, answering questions from fans, and chatting about 40K was an extremely fun and inspiring experience, and after returning from Gen Con I am motivated more than ever to expand the Deathwatch line with plenty of new books!

The entire RPG department here at Fantasy Flight Games (including myself, Jay Little, Dan Clark, Mack Martin, and Sam Stewart) really enjoyed meeting our fans and discussing the worlds and characters these games bring to life. I’d like to extend a special thanks to Ashley & Bill (seen in the picture at right), who were first in line for Deathwatch (and for Rogue Trader last year, as well!) and to all the great fans attending Gen Con 2010.
As a special bonus, this week I’m pleased to present the downloadable version of the Deathwatch character sheet plus the Squad/Solo mode sheet. These resources can also be found on the Deathwatch Support Page to make your games of Deathwatch easier!
Deathwatch Character sheets and squad/solo mode sheet

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.

Cheers for the sheets Ross, and glad you had a good time at Gencon!

Just a shame you guys won't be over here in the UK for Games Day at the end of September :( Would have been nice to actually meet you guys.
