For the Intercessors, why do the sergeants have Bolt Rifles when the rest have Auto Bolt Rifles?

Who is going in the Corvus, as neither veterans squad fits. Also maybe move the Frag Cannons and IHB so that each squad as two of one or the other instead of each having one of each.

Thanks for the Hint! The Sergeants not using Auto Rifles was not on Purpose. I edited this.

I noticed the problem with the Corvus blackstar. I've already considered splitting a veteran squad. But the teams work best that way.
Even without using the transport function, the Corvus is in my opinion a valid support unit.

And the two heavy weapons in the Veteran Squads I have divided, because the teams themselves can cover a larger variation and contingencies. Since it can happen that the teams operate a bit further apart, I wanted to have all the heavy weapon strengths present in each team.

Maybe I'm wrong about that too? I am happy about any advice! :-)

 

POINTS IN THE LIST ARE NOW UP TO DATE

I get what you are saying with the heavy weapon, and while versatility and flexibility is a key asset for Deathwatch there is a bit of a Jack of all Trades, Master of None angle.

My own Deathwatch are mostly Primaris, so I don’t have experience with the Veteran kill team, but with the Primaris I tend to tool one squad up for mid to short range and one for long to mid range. So both can do the mid range where I expect to be at but each can perform well in one of the other roles and I position them adoringly when I can.

While the Corvus is a good gun boat, having the option to put one squad in on deployment on occasions, if the mission calls for it, might be worth changing one squad load out a tad.

Any way play and see how it works.
