i've got my codex and first set of troops done in the alpha legion and am wondering what models i could use for a chaos cultist? my first thought was imperial guard but it says they are armed with a ccw and laspistol, whereas i could only arm 2 with that if i brought the troopers. what i'll probabily end up doing is assembling them as normal and explaining to my opponant before the game how they are armed. would anyone have a problem with that?
any ideas would be appreciated.
It's an interesting point you mention, and a problem that i've been battling with as I intend to include cultists in my army very soon
To be honest, I was thinking of using the Forge world Chaos militia parts with the cadian ones. I was going to do them slightly mutated making good use of the mutation sprue, spare nid parts (for the CC weapon) and modifying bolt pistols, bolters and las guns to a las pistol/auto pistol equivelant.
In this way, i guess they can also be used as mutants should you decide to go down the LaTD path.
I have also considered using the Krieg Doom Corps or whatever they're called. With their gasmasks and stuff they look like pure Chaos to me.. just make sure to scratch out the imperial eagle!
It's a never ending question, but hopefully, some Alpha vets will be able to shed some light on it.

Well personally I'd just search ebay looking for pistol and ccw bitz. If you'd like to join the chaos project (or post there anyway) I believe several members (Andusciassus from memory) are willing to donate bits and pieces to aspiring chaos players.
I say just get normal Cadians/Catachans (empire heads make them look wild and unkept) and snoop around for pistol and ccw bitz individually.
Check out my Codex: Farmyard Animals here!
If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.
1 box of 20 Catachan Jungle Fighters +
1 box of 20 Fantasy Empire Militia +
1 box of 20 VC Zombies =
3x 20 mobs of AL Cultists or Nurglesque Mutants for LatD lists.
Catachan Lasguns can be turned into Laspistols pretty easily.
The Militia come with a number of pistol werapons, too.
I just added a few shoulder pads and pistols from the bits box.
