You could probably pass them off for Stormtroopers, same 4+ save.

You could always just use the scout arm on Cadian bodies. Shoulders will look a little different, but not much.

You can get actual shotguns from the Necromunda weapons sprues. There are the pewter sprues that have 2 or 3 of them and then then plastic ganger spures that will have several shotguns.

you probably could. There's little pyramids on the joint to make them slot into the body properly, just cut those off and you should be fine. It might look a tad bulky, I'm trying to remmber sizes.

Actually not too much of a difference, not vastly noticable, really just the pauldron is sligthly different and a little bigger on the scouts

When I had my Catachan IG army, I used those, and they especially worked well with the Jungle fighter plastics.

I think, if you're using Cadian plastic IG, the Necromunda weapons might require a fair bit of conversion work.

That said, if you're using Cadians, I'd suggest the SM Scout shotgun arms.

Definitely browse around online and in the Online Store for IG pics/Scout pics and see which shotguns are going to fit your theme. The arm could be perfectly sized but look completely out of place to you personally. I think TauFire summed it up nicely, but make sure to get that look of them before you decide.

think i'm gonna go with marine scouts with shotguns for my veterans, they just look like imperil guard on steroids, which is what i'm going for anyhow.
