Watch Fortresses are fortresses, command stations, and training facilities utilized by the Deathwatch. These are spread throughout the realm of the Imperium.[1]

A Watch Fortress is a self-sustained facility capable of accommodating many Kill-teams. Equipped with Astropaths, Navigators, fleet docks, training facilities, and even forges, many are also home to captured xenos relics used for study.[3] Many Watch Fortresses also maintain a cache of Xenos and forbidden weaponry known as a Black Vault.[8b]

A Watch Fortress differs from a Watch Station in that while Watch Fortresses are large complexes and relatively rare, Watch Stations are far more numerous and smaller facilities.[3]
