I think it's an ok gang, haven't played the orlock faction, but since you're using the original book, all gangs are the same at the start so I would have built my delaque one the same way (besides the heavy bolter).
Regarding the juves, why don't you put autopistol or stubgun on both? Iirc, one of them is better than the other one (range, power, etc) just can't recall which one sadly.
Also, why puting a ganger with an autopistol?  :o Ganger = at least shotgun or lasgun, otherwise he won't be that much of a use with only a pistol and even with a sword or a massive one, their chances to get to hand to hand are pretty low imo. I would rather put a simple sword and give them a shotgun or a lasgun  or in the worst case a laspistol than a simple autopistol which makes them like juves.
Another thing regarding the heavy, ok, you did give him two weapons which is a really nice choice cause in case of losing his heavy weapon he'll still be able to fight, but why again just a simple laspistol and not a lasgun which range is longer?

Well that's my 2c so hope it'll help :) Besides that, the way you built your gang is ok :)

Yeah i did only just arm my heavy with laspistol as i wanted a few creds left over in my stash so i cud get better rare items after my first battle and once i got a few creds i was planning on getting him a lasgun. The ganger with just auto pistol was cos the modal i have has one and i play wysiwyg so thats why and i wanted a couple of dedicated hand to hand fighters the guy with a massive sword is a conversion i did mixing catachan jungle fighter and mordhiem parts and i think its cool so thought i wud try him out. I played my first battle with them last night and i did get beat but that was on a unlucky bottle roll and the fact my heavy missed all his shots when he had a perfect shot at 2 gangers in the open. My gang came off better in post battle as i captured thier leader and killed a ganger where i only ended up with a couple of chest wounds on gangers and with the cash i got from ransoming the leader i bought a infra red sight and thinking of buying my heavy the lasgun.

It's definitely the autopistols which are awesome, and the stubguns which are pathetic. I've got my probability thread around here somewhere with the math, the difference between the two is sickening.

Captured the leader eh? Hope you got a lot of money for him!

Most cameras have a macro setting now. On mine it's a mountain/flower icon, for far off shots (standard) and up close shots. Try to find that on yours, surround the figs with white paper and good lighting, then take a macro shot without a flash.

mspaint, image resize/skew, drop it to 30% of actual size, should be big enough to see clearly, small enough to attach. Easy.
