they look cool?
that's about the only reason to take a shotgun over a bp/ccw. the *only* redeaming feature is that they'll hit on a 3+ ... but the crappy Str makes that kinda pointless. shotguns are for guardsmen.
all i know is that the new plastic scouts that are in the works come with shotguns w00t my IG are gettin' come cool shotguns!
Because GW makes the models, I believe. Or because they were too lazy to take it out of the weapons, I don't really know, but next time, use the Search button, this has been discussed a decent amount of times before.

there assualt 2 is the only reason to take them. So infutrate to 12 inches. Move 6" shoot twice, assault first turn. this would be very terrain dictated. And would prob require a good move though cover roll (cover is the only way I can see getting the 12" starting distance). might be nice againts someone dev squads or such or maybe a whirlwind or baskilisk(sp) with kraks.
yeah thats why you hide on the other side of trees. They can't see thou trees. and hope for a good roll on the dif. terrain test. But since there scouts you get 3 dice. And why I said its very terrain dictated!!!
Well, I know about twelve years ago the shotgun had a small template, or you could have it shoot a slug which had higher strength if you wanted it to.
I need the bugger so I can see!
I think that they look really cool. A friend of mine tired them out against tyranids and they did decently, although he would have done better giving his scouts bolters.
