Special abilities:
Purposeful – once per game, when a friendly Scarlet Watch model finishes his activation, the owning player may immediately activate another Scarlet Watch model. ^--- So all SW models have Purposeful, but only one of them can use it, right?

"Special Training - Hold the Line!" Where is Indomitable defined?

Dark Guard - Obscure Path This says he can choose spells from the armies of darkness. I assume all the spells in this document are available. Why armies of darkness? I was under the impression the Orcs were the good guys in Norsgard.

Indomitable – the model cannot be dazed.

Indeed, orcs are good guys. However, The Scarlet Watch has dark past... background text will tell more about it. Dark Guard can use spells from his own army list and also from The Howling Horde. It will be noted in the rulebook that Howling Horde is evil army. Dark Guard mages have permission to study dark scrolls and it reflects in spell they may know.

Spell - Ice Wall, creates impassable terrain and blocks LoS for enemy models.

So friendly models CAN see through the template?

The weapon's profiles below;

Throwing Axe  3"-6" +1, 6"-9" 0, 3
Javelin            3"-7" +1, 7"-12" -1, 3

A javelin is slightly better than a throwing axe at close range, but worse at longer range? Seems backwards to me.

This is just for game balance. Vei-Banshees are really fast and with better ranged option for long distance they will take down orcs rather quick. This is the only reason why ranges look in such way.
