I'm a bit confused as to how gun crews should be treated when it comes to targetting and taking casualties... First off, does a gun crew count as Artillery? I don't think so as it isn't mentioned at all that I could find. Second, when a gun and crew are mounted on one of the large bases that they come with, does that count as one model with two wounds, and can the second crewman not manning the gun use his lasgun if the gun is used as well? And in a heavy weapon squad with three guns, is it counted as having 3 models or 6?
Sorry, new to IG.

Its just the same as a space marine with a heavy weapon its just that it takes two people to move the big thing around. Now this have nothing to do with the game its only meant to show that a normal man can't carry the thing by himself.
The loader can fire his lasgun if you want as he is just another guardsmen. The loader and the gunner count as two separate models so if you put them on the same base then just use a dise to show that one of the men has been killed. You only need the one guardsmen to fire a heavy weapon and in heavy weapon squads you can lose the first 3 guardsmen and still fire all your heavy weapons as its the loaders who were killed. Don't let anyone tell you that it takes two guardsmen to fire a heavy weapon.
"Hey sarge, this lasgun is heavy. I wish we had something lighter."

Yeah, KOS-MOS has it. They just give you the big base for (what I assume to be) ease of moving the unit around or maybe for a larger diorama around a big crew served weapon.
