The Emperor's Chosen: A Deathwatch Expansion

Fantasy Flight Games has announced an expansion for Deathwatch called The Emperor's Chosen, which has to do with Deathwatch Veteran Space Marines. These veterans are distinguished even from their brethrn by their skill and iron resolve.

From Developer Tim Flanders:
It was this notion of history and brotherhood that informed the development of The Emperor’s Chosen. The newest supplement for Deathwatch presents players with the opportunity to play Deathwatch Space Marines at their finest, with the experience of history guiding their actions and their trust in the Battle-Brother next to them driving them onward. This book provides players and GM’s with the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of those legendary Kill-teams whose names are recorded in the histories of Watch Fortress Erioch and with the tools to take their place beside the most famous Space Marines of the Jericho Reach.

It looks like a pretty neat expansion, and should cater to the munchkin style players who tend to gravitate toward playing Space Marines. Just kidding, you all know I am one of them! Also, this means we can look forward to some more stellar artwork as the interior previews become available!

Are those guys on the cover riding Pterodactyls?

Hmmm... looks like a Harridan and either a Gargoyle or winged Tyranid warrior. Though Pterodactyls would be pretty cool.
