Seconded, I've been wanting to do Traitor Guard since Cultist's were included in the CSM codex. Looking forward to being able to field all 3 Chaos Armies in Apoc Games. :D

I have my doubts about the special weapons squads being kitted for the simple reason is that as they stand it's a 6 man squad and that makes it hard to double up with other kits. If you box it with Vets and vets only get 1 Special weapon per 5 guys then that doesn't stack either as SWS get 1 per 2.

Just some thoughts.

As for the Knight Titan, FW is doing Ad Mech these days, Knights are Ad Mech, it's only a matter of time before FW brings out a Knight kit. I can't see GW stepping on those toes.

Well, there is always Faeit's anonymous rumor:

Special Weapon and Heavy Weapon Squads are now 10 men each. [3]
If that's true, SWT will probably have a 5 man kit with one of everything, I don't think GW cares about effective builds as long as there is enough special weapons to make a squad.

Pretty much sums up my thoughts on the subject as well. You could swap for female heads and they would work as well.

If I ever make a Inquisition force I'm using those heads on Wych bodies to make Death Cult Assassins. Good sculpts.

HW/SW squads being bumped up to 10? That's different... if it happens I expect to see 2 Infantry Squad platoons with maxed out SW squads instead of veterans. I'd be surprised though, the 6 man HW/SW squads have been a staple of IG for 2 editions.

If you want to use GW figures there's not much you can do except for swapping heads. Unfortunately the only decent, plastic and in-scale GW female heads all come from foul xenos, but it's not like it's impossible to properly mod. SilverTabby's right, you don't really need to change much aside from the face. This assuming you want to use WH40K models, Necromunda and converted fantasy minis can get you quite some mileage.

If you don't care about having GW figures there's a world full of options. They tend to be rather more expensive than the ordinary ones, however.
