I figured Necromunda mutant rats would have scavenged Imperial weapons. Since they'll likely get used for Kill Team too, I gave a couple Kroot rifles too. I put models on sprue because eventually they should have real bases, and the sprue helps hold them in place and keeps them from breaking off the bases.
What are armies? You talk like I actually play 40K ever, lol. We play a little bit of Necromunda and Mordheim, but 40K games are few and far between. I just like cutting up figures and re-posing them to look cooler. I mean, I'd like to play more 40K, but it rarely happens. In the mean time, I just like having cool looking models that are unique to my collection. Because my favorite part of the hobby is seeing what people can create with their imaginations.
I was working on my own variant of Kill Team based closer on 2nd Edition rules mixed with some of the better WW2 games like Chain of Command and Battlegroup Kursk, but it's a massive undertaking to get it all balanced. I'd love to just play some platoon-sized games of 40K where movement and terrain matter again and there aren't any death stars or giant robots etc. So all of my "armies" are built using that idea.
I already have about 200 or so IGuard (Steel Legion and metal Cadians) and some tanks and transports. I'll end up having roughly "platoon" sized forces of Orks, Tau, Necrons, Eldar Corsairs, and Genestealer Cult when I'm "done", along with some vehicles for each. Then I can just play with my friends, since I can supply all the models, heh.
