In the grim darkness of the far future there is only war…
You are a Space Marine, one of the Imperium’s supreme warriors. Genetically enhanced and engineered with special implants to be the ultimate soldier, you are far stronger, tougher and deadlier than any human being. You have been selected to join an elite warrior brotherhood of alien-hunters known as the Deathwatch.
As a Deathwatch Space Marine, your duty is to seek out vile alien ruins on forbidden worlds, venture
behind enemy lines to perform special missions noone else can accomplish, and confront the most
dangerous challenges the galaxy possesses…challenges that only the heroes of the Space Marines can defeat.
They shall be my finest warriors, these men who give of themselves to me. Like clay I shall mould them, and in the furnace of war forge them. They will be of iron will and steely muscle. In great armour shall I clad them and with the mightiest guns will they be armed. They will be untouched by plague or disease, no sickness will blight them. They will have tactics, strategies and machines so that no foe can best them in battle. They are my bulwark against the Terror. They are the Defenders of Humanity. They are my Space Marines and they shall know no fear.
- The Emperor of Mankind -
