WATCH FORTRESSES OF THE IMPERIUM

The Deathwatch are the most vigilant defenders the Imperium has to guard its borders. They operate from remote stations known as watch fortresses, each absent from Imperial records, as to the Deathwatch, obfuscation is another moat with which to keep their castles strong.

Each space-borne watch fortress is a sovereign domain ruled by its Watch Commander. On his authority, entire sectors are put to the torch without question. These strikes are so effective that the grand crusades of attrition which typify Humanity’s approach to war are made unnecessary – many growing threats are contained and expunged before the wider Imperium is even aware of them.

Each Deathwatch stronghold operates under a shroud of secrecy, standing as a hidden sentinel over a select area of the Imperium’s dominion. Some are space-borne fortresses that monitor a specific threat – Castilos Nullifact watches for the rise of the long-slumbering Necron dynasties in the north of Ultima Segmentum, whereas Fort Pykman monitors the Ghoul Stars and the horrors that lie beyond. Others instead keep watch over a specific area in which aliens have been sighted in great measure. There are those watch stations which house a garrison of only a handful of battle-brothers, whilst the largest of fortresses play host to entire Watch Companies. Regardless of size, these space stations bristle with weaponry – islands of sanity and strength in the midst of the endless sea of stars.

THE HERALDRY OF THE HONOURED

The stations of the Deathwatch are many, and neither the Inquisition nor the Watch Commanders themselves know of them all. Some are only a few centuries old, formed in response to emergent xenos threats. Others have legends that span millennia, their oaths of vigilance and ancient heraldry borne upon proud standards in their Sanctum Bellicos.

Talasa Prime is the capital training world of the Deathwatch – not just a space station, but a whole planet sited in the realm of Macragge. The lords of Talasa’s Deathwatch keep their own counsel, though their wars against the Tyranid hive fleets and the Tau race have proved critical.

The Praefex Venatoris keep watch over a string of alien portals used by the Commorrite Eldar in Segmentum Obscurus. Their forces are constantly on hair-trigger alert, for they must move fast if they are to save the teeming human worlds of Syracia Thrive from alien piracy.

14

The Onyx Patrol is not a watch station so much as a fleet, for its quarry is the nomadic Craftworld Eldar. Its web of informants crosses Segmentum Solar, and its Warp drives are kept hot. Since the patrol’s inception, Eldar sightings in the core sectors have become rare indeed.

The Ghoul Stars harbour hidden threats, from the emergent Barghesi to the awakening Necron dynasties. Fort Pykman favours Malleus tactics; it stands ready to demolish ancient sites should there be even a flicker of suspicion they are linked to tomb worlds or alien worldnests.

Furor Shield monitors the Ork-held Octarius sub-sector, into which Kryptman of the Ordo Xenos misdirected a tendril of Hive Fleet Leviathan. Both Tyranids and Orks adapt under duress – when the victor of this ever-escalating war emerges, the Shield stands ready to slay them.

15

The Eye of Damocles is a vast watch fortress that monitors the borders between Imperial space and that of the usurper Tau Empire. Its Kill Teams specialise in vertical assault. Dominatus teams will often strike from Corvus Blackstars to turn one- sided firefights into bloody melees.
