Deathwatch: City of Ruin is a short story by Ian St. Martin. It was published online in December 2015.
Following their campaign against a rising ork Waaagh!, the Imperial Fists inadvertently shoot down a xenos asteroid onto the world of Basatani. Unfortunately, this leads the Navis Nobilite to demand that the Deathwatch go after a young Navigator scion who was last seen in the capital. The veteran Imperial Fist Rodricus Grytt volunteers to join Kill Team Almuta, bound for the planet’s surface – but as a Devastator sergeant with a reputation for causing untold collateral damage, is he the best candidate for such a sensitive rescue operation?
