Deathwatch (Part 1)

With 33% off coupon in hand, I walked into my local Borders Bookstore, hoping to find some new and exciting novel or gaming treat to buy. You see, I like to read. A lot. I like science fiction, fantasy, history, mysteries - the usual 'geek' stuff. I recently finished the new Dungeons & Dragons novel, 'The Mark of Nerath' by Bill Slavicsek and was now in the mood for some sci fi, but first I decided to browse through the gaming section (which is way too small for a two-story bookstore), and I found the Deathwatch RPG book. I couldn't help myself. It was space marine material and I had to have it.

I have to say that this is a must for any 40k player. The art alone is among some of the best space marine art that I have ever seen. Not ever having experienced any of the 40k roleplaying products, I'm going to give this one a read. I don't know if I'll ever get around to finding a group to actually play as there doesn't seem to be much interest locally, but it is a great reference book and provides near limitless inspiration for modelling space marines, particularly the battle brothers of the Deathwatch.


  1. Borders has not emailed me any coupons in like a month, ever since they transitioned to their new tiered member program. I got both my 4th ed W40K and 7th Ed WFB Hardcover rulebooks there using 40% off coupons in the past.

  2. i'm still on the fence about that tiered program. i do read a lot, but not haven't decided whether or not to layout the cash.
    i earn sufficient borders bucks, but i don't like how they aren't valid until the following month.

  3. I am lucky enough to be involved in a gaming store that has a lot of Roleplaying going on, and I have even managed to land myself a seat at a table to play deathwatch... the book if it wasnt soo expensive would have already been bought by me as I think its art and background are well worth it... I just havent had the money yet.

  4. Did the same thing. Borders and a 40% coupon are an awesome combo man.
