Deathwatch: Overkill is a board game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe by Games Workshop.

Overview

Description

Something deeply strange is going on at Ghosar Quintus. The mining planetoid’s population has developed odd habits and unsettling iconography. A suspicious transmission from Inquisitor Chaergryn, sent to investigate, has given the Imperium cause for alarm - ordinarily a man of absolute conviction, outside influences appear to have changed his mind. Kill Team Excis, tasked with investigating the Inquisitor’s behaviour, has gone silent, and references to a ‘four-armed Emperor’ have been detected.

A new Kill Team has been assembled by Ortan Cassius, Ultramarines Chaplain of renown – a detachment of redoubted heroes from a number of Chapters, every one a single-minded killing machine. Cassius has sworn to cleanse Ghosar Quintus of whatever mysterious alien threat has swallowed Kill Team Excis, and stop this challenge to the Emperor of Mankind before it can even begin. Whether he will be successful is unknown, but one thing is certain – Kill Team Cassius will descend upon Ghosar Quintus like a great mailed fist, and the battle will be spectacular
