Battleforged: Ordo Xenos/Deathwatch List Ideas

Per my last post, I'm going to start working on an Ordo Xenos/Deathwatch list.  In no particular order, here are some of the things that I'd like to add.  The various detachments would cover the different types of things I'd potentially want to have in an army.  Everything would be painted/converted up to either look Inquisitorial or Deathwatch.  Scouts would use Pig Iron Studios heads and any standalone Marine in power armour needs to have specialty ammo.  That means I might add an Ultramarines detachment with Telion in a Sniper Squad and some Tyrannic War Vets to deal with Monstrous Creatures since they wound on 2's regardless of toughness.

Kantor gives Sternguard the Objective Secured USR, so the primary detachment would have Sniper Scouts to deploy near objectives in my deployment zone and Drop Pod Sternguard to deploy near objectives in my opponent's.

My next step is to go through and actually work out some points values to go with these detachments.  I want to keep the allied ones relatively balanced so that I can take my core Crimson Fists as a primary and then either add GKs for some Terminator Goodness, or Iron Hands if I think Bikes are gonna be a must. Clan Raukaan would let me fortify two ruins, hunker down in cover and start shooting from range.
