Deathwatch are always fun.
My only real criticism is using a Scythe of the Emperor. There always seems to be one in every deathwatch kill team I've seen. Okay, they're a fairly sensible chapter to recruit from, but I'm worried it might be percieved as a bit of a stereotype.
And, though I can't be sure, I get the feeling 42 is incredibly young by deathwatch marine standards.
Nice, I'll be writing something similar myself later (need a squad for the kill team subgame.. and what could be better than a deathwatch kill team.)
at soem point i need to flesh it out with a few bolter armed marines who i imagine coming from suitable Ultramarine successor chapters (i wna tto avoid the white and black consuls and the mortifactors) and any other successor chapters i can find with a xenos fighting history
and perhaps some support / inquisitorial background
