Its decent, id question the choice of Spring Up on your boltgun armed leader and champion - its good for melee specialists but they'd probably better off with something like Dodge (for survivability) or a leadership skill on your leader to bolster your very average Cool checks.

Deathmaiden loadout is ok but your not making use of her poison blood skill, a needle pistol is superior to a las pistol for only 5 points more, which you have spare, power swords do scale better if your planning on boosting her strength, however they lose out on the toxin effect..

I assume the purpose of the juves is travelling up the board with the Maiden to act as bullet catchers?

Looks solid. The only thing I would change is to take spring up on your death maiden (and perhaps pick up combat virtuoso as her second skill).

Although, given the names you have chosen, it doesn't feel right to have a sword in the gang.

Yep, the Juves are mostly just there to catch bullets. They can also maybe deal with chaff (enemy gangers and Juves who aren't set up for CC) and occasionally CDG the seriously injured or otherwise support the DM.

I'm definitely not set on my skill choices. Dodge, Step Aside and Leadership skills are all probably better on my Boltgun ladies. I do love the idea of Versatile 3" on the Death Maiden, but that won't do me much good if my opponents can keep her pinned. I am going to switch that to Spring Up and then take a Finesse skill as soon as I can.
I'll look at possibly replacing the Death Maiden's Laspistol with a Needle Pistol, though I'm rather loathe to get rid of anything to get it. The Laspistol is just there to provide an extra attack until I'm ready to buy her a second Power Sword for an extra "good" attack and a second parry.
@MrAnderson: Good catch on the sword! All swords in this gang are going to be modelled as spears, as they should be. Swords are for tree-killing wetlanders.

For the needle pistol upgrade, replace you juves laspistol for a stub gun, just as good in melee, trades some short range for a better bit bonus and is 5 creds cheaper.

Autopistol is better than both stubgun and Las pistol but we're trying to pinch creds here :)

I reworked the list a bit. I took the suggested skills on the Leader and Champions. I deleted the Mesh Armor on Somara (Shotgun Sister) so that I could go full Toxin on the Death Maiden. I'd forgotten about the Poison Blood rule, which is useful enough to make it worth going all-in on Toxin for this one fighter. Her number of attacks is enough for hoping that at least one gets past armor and toughness. The Leader or Champion will eventually get a Power Sword (Spear) for variety and dealing with more heavily armored targets.
The Stub Gun is indeed cheaper and more accurate up close, but I decided on Auto Pistols for the two Little Sisters for slightly better melee damage. It's worth the extra 10 credits.

Malevolent Pink Cat, I thought about having an Avienda and an Amys in the gang, but they're both former Far Dareis Mai who became Wise Ones, so I decided to leave them out.
Love that you have a properly thought through reason! You get a pass anyway for including bain and chiad :D
