Default Building a Deathwatch Army

Does anyone know how, or if, you can play Deathwatch as a normal army in a tournament?

What codex would you use?

I'd use the normal SM codex, but I'd include an over abundance of Sternguard and Vanguard squads.

playing a deathwatch army you could use any SM codex you wanted. deathwatch on the tabletop is really just a paint scheme, unless you wanted to go really fluffy. but then again fluffy for deathwatch only means having a handful of guys so it wouldn't make much sense to play a fluffy deathwatch army. it'd be more like multiple kill teams. anyway you certainly could play any of the codex, but the vanilla codex is probably the more fluffy codex to use.

One of my friends has a Deathwatch/Ordo Xenos themed army that uses the vanilla Space Marine Codex. It's a couple Tactical Squads in Razorbacks, two Sternguard squads in Drop Pods, a Venerable Dread in a Pod and then I think Predators or something (it's been a while since I've seen this army in action, forgive my poor memory). It's not super competitive, but looks great and has an interesting theme and fairly unique playstyle.
