Death in
the Void


“The Gathering of the Ascension: On the eve of the Feast of the
Emperor’s Ascension, four Inquisitors and two hundred brothers of
the Deathwatch arrive the fortress at the same time. All claim to have
received a coded message that called them to attend at the Watch
Fortress. The source of the message is unknown. The Watch Fortress
becomes a battleground of mistrust and murder as a shapeshifting
assassin of unknown origin stalks the corridors and vaults of the
Watch Fortress. The assassin is caught and slain after a seventeen hour
manhunt, but only after the death of two of the four Inquisitors, nine
acolytes, and twenty-three Space Marines. [Other Details Classified]”
–Notes from the Liber Eriochus, 756.M41

ON THE HUNT
Its presence
unmasked, the intruder initiated
an orgy of violence that threatened to engulf the
entire Watch Fortress. Not knowing if this enemy
was the only intruder or if a number of the recently arrived
Battle-Brothers were its allies, the masters of the Chamber
of Vigilance continued their interrogations, though with
greater caution. Of great concern, however, was the fact that
the intruder had appeared to be a Battle-Brother well known
to the Master of Sanctity, leading the other masters to the
conclusion that some manner of domination or imitation was
being used. The masters had no choice but to pass word of
their realisation throughout the entire force, though in doing
so they hoped to drive the infiltrator, or indeed infiltrators, to
some action that would unmask them.
The intruder, however, proved a canny enemy, and one
adept at turning brother upon brother. Stray signals flooded
the vox net, evidently designed to sow discord and confusion
amongst the Adeptus Astartes. Such a thing is far from easy
to achieve, however, and soon the Battle-Brothers were in
full pursuit of at least one confirmed infiltrator. As they ran
their query to ground, cornering it in the outer chamber
of the Shrine of Saint Nuaan, the Deathwatch saw that the
figure before them could be no true Battle-Brother. Its eyes
now glowed with actinic balefire and its voice echoed as
from a distant abyss.

Evil Ultramarines!? It's just crazy enough to work!

Seriously though, this is epic and its a nice touch how their shown to be evenly matched. 

While standing in fire.

Armoured or not, I can think of more sensible substances to stand in. 

Just a shame that none of them exist anymore in 40K.

Well, what ELSE are they supposed to do with the bodies of children, if not use them for nutrient supplements?

Would have loved it more if it was an Iron Hand fighting against the Ultramarine, would have added more feels in the fight cause of their bitter rivalry. But GLORIOUS nonetheless.

Quoting from a source about the deathwatch from the warham 40k wiki: "A highly regimented Ultramarine values strict adherence to the Codex Astartes above all else. While the Iron Hands may structure their Chapter after the basic tenets of the Codex, they care little for the views of others and do not place much stock in the Ultramarines' complaints against their lack of orthodoxy, preferring to let their long record of service to the Imperium speak for itself. The Ultramarines particularly dislike the Iron Hands' obsession with replacing the organic portions of their bodies with augmetics, viewing it as tantamount to heresy and the result of a real flaw in the Iron Hands' gene-seed."

Oh, but it doesn´t mention the Templars, as I thought. Well, we must admit that the Iron Hands are a bit creepy in their own tech-ish way...

A very impressive clash. I'm guessing the Ultramarine is possessed. The Templar's unrelenting faith in the Emperor shall carry the day.

Yes, at least one of them is possessed, and anyway the Black Templar probably doesn´t care much about killing tainted brothers anyway.
