“All ships, fire at will! Gunner, get me a lock on that hive ship... I want our nova cannon ready to fire the instant we enter optimal range.”

The Achilus Assault, a supplement for Deathwatch, is now available at your local retailer and on our webstore!
This detailed sourcebook tells of the Achilus Crusade and the great challenges it faces from both without and within. Living up to the ideals of honor, brotherhood, and duty is a difficult task, and it is the fate of the Deathwatch Space Marines in the Jericho Reach to shoulder this duty head-on—they are the first and last line of defence against a myriad of threats to the Crusade of which some commanders are not even aware.
For more on this invaluable resource, we present a few insights from Deathwatch’s lead developer:
The setting for the Deathwatch RPG is a massive war front—the Achilus Crusade—sweeping across the lost worlds of the Jericho Reach. The front lines of this interstellar conflict are a great backdrop for the adventures of the Deathwatch Space Marines battling alongside the Crusade forces, and the Achilus Assault is a brand-new sourcebook that brings all of this into focus for a Deathwatch campaign. The Achilus Assault provides detailed descriptions for some of the Jericho Reach’s most significant planets and warzones to allow players and GMs alike to plan new Deathwatch Missions.
Each of the three major salients of the Achilus Crusade have their own unique themes and deadly enemies. Some foes may be reasoned with, whilst others must be fought to the bitter end. This book describes the major threats to the Crusade’s advance and describes how the efforts of Deathwatch Kill-teams can tip the balance.
With The Achilus Assault, you can bring your Deathwatch campaign into the front lines of the Crusade, and choose which worlds shall be saved, and which shall burn.
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.
Can't wait to get my copy in the mail. Looking foreward to learning more about the Who, What, When, Where, and How of the Jericho Reach.
I'm looking forward for more on the Crusade and hope we'll find specific and detailed situations for playing missions (such as Objectives), having been a bit taken aback by the general and vague descriptions sometimes found in the WH40K RPG line... The Emperor Protects was a good step and I hope this one will follow!
An excellent source material book, will be utilising and incorporating into my campaign... Nice work FFG
