Dunno if this is in the wrong place, but here goes:
So I'm thinking 1-2 projects ahead (as usual :shifty and I've gotta know: What exactly happened to the original stormtrooper models? I'm talking about the ones in the Daemonhunters codex used to represent Inquisitorial stormtroopers. These days, everybody is nuts about the kasrkin models, which frankly I don't like as much. Can one still get the "originals?" Are they considered "stormtroopers" or are they something else? Are their guns actual hellguns, or something else, because they look significantly different. Finally, has anyone ever tried to make stormtroopers that look like the older models, or is everyone so keen on the kasrkins that they don't matter anymore?
most people just prefer the Kasrkins, but I rather use the Vostroyans. They have rebreathers like the old stormtroopers and handcrafted lasguns, which frankly looks better than the Hellguns of the Kasrkins.
The old ones are bitz-orderable, although very expensive. Hence people just use Kasrkins, which come with Hellguns to start with (even in IG armies)... I have two small Kasrkin squads and when painted right, they look "inquisitorial" enough IMHO... I also wanted to do the Vostroyans too, but I already had some models on hand so decided to go with what I had availiable....
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
So long as there is a visable difference in the model, then they can be whatever you want them to be. I would suggest backpacks with wire connecting to the lasguns, but really, so long as they are using a different gun, then whats the problem? I would even say use the m4 guns from the necromunda games, but really its up to you.
