I am just starting out with death watch and am GMing the campaign. My storyline is based on the iron warriors invading a group of forge worlds in order to get the means to take over the entire sector. As such I am going to be making some rules for Iron warrior marines. I was thinking about giving them all some of the lower level techmarine abilities base but don't know if that a good idea. I was also toying with giving them some of the bionics as equipment. I am not sure what would be the best way to do this and would love some help and advice.

You may give them for example improve cover - techmarine's special skill. This would give them nice bonus from staying behind some cover and shooting at players. Of course equip them with some fine weapons eg. plasma gun/melta (one or two guuys in their band).
It would be fine to convert deathwatch techmarine's rules to make iron warrior techmarine, who could be their leader.

If you have a Gmail account, use Google Docs. Create a folder for all the bits you want to share with people and then share the folders. Stuff a link to the folder here and there making sure to allow anyone to view, but not edit the folder and its contents. Sorted Took me a wee while to discover it as a sensible way of sharing the power cards I made but it seems to be working fine
