Just about all the aliens are represented, including Necrons, Tau, Tyranids, “Greenskins” and elder. Some stories end well or relatively well, with the mission being a success. Others end in disaster, with the whole Team being wiped out.
A few themes seem to stand out, or, at least, appear in several stories. One is that the various Inquisitors that make use of Deathwatch kill-Teams are anything but scrupulous and quite ruthless. The same can be said about their officers. At best, the Teams are used and sent in blind with only the bare minimum information and without being aware of what is at stake. At worst, they are almost cannon fodder or even used as bait. Some of the Inquisitors clearly seem to be following their own personnel agendas and/or belong to rather radical factions. Their behaviours and motivations mat be rather questionable, border on heresy or may be driven by settling scores. Another theme, present in a couple of stories, and that some readers might disliked, is the way the Space Wolves are presented. I could not help feeling that they were somewhat caricatured as unsuttle and undisciplined brutes who get into trouble and have to be bailed out or have to be restrained before they put everyone else in their Team into trouble.
As for the stories themselves, some are necessarily better than others. A couple are average, although none were really weak. Some were rather exceptional, with my favourite being “The Infinite Tableau” by Anthony Reynolds. This was partly because the leader of the Kill Team was a Blood Angels (which have always been one of my favourite Chapters!) but also because of the “artistically minded” Necron warlord Trazyn the Infinite. Other stories, such as the boarding of Greenskin space hulks, were less original, although still well told.
