Welcome to part 7 of my Deathwatch Codex review for 8th edition. This part will take a look at the Heavy Support options for the Deathwatch.
This is an incredibly strong Primaris unit, but are very expensive to field. Their Plasma Incinerators are a powerful weapon, able to take on a whole host of units and do a lot of damage if they overcharge their shots.
The Hellblaster Squad benefit well from the Deathwatch stratagems, particularly the Teleportarium stratagem and Doctrines. The Teleportarium helps to keep the unit safe from enemy firepower, as well as allowing them to deploy in rapid fire range to get maximum effect from their Plasma Weaponry from the first turn they fire.
The right Doctrine and Mission Tactics will also really boost the firepower output of the squad. They will be able to wound most units in the game on a 2+ when overcharging and using the right Doctrine, plus re-rolling 1's to wound with the right Mission Tactics. This makes the squad great for causing maximum damage to an enemy target, especially when combined with re-rolls to hit from a Watch Master or Watch Captain.
