Equipment good for PDF/Rebels/Chaos

Recommended Posts

I was thinking up some equipment for enemy forces in my new campaign and thought I'd share for creative criticism and on the off-chance someone out there might find them useful.


I'm worried that I've made the Klergstop stub rifle too heavy (but the weapons in the game seem overly heavy compared to reality so I tried to make it comparitively heavy).  The other thing is I think I might have gone a bit mad with the rocket varient of the N20 half-track, possibly made it a bit harsh with what could go wrong with it.

Klergstop Stub Rifles
These simple rifles or ones very similar to them can be found all over the imperium.  They are unwieldy, heavy, slow fireing with small magazines.  However they are simple to manufacture and maintain, reliable, long ranged and hard hitting as well a sharing ammunition with some heavy stubbers.  These positive characteristics can often outweigh the negatives for many users and as such it is often found in the hands of PDF troopers, local security forces, frontier gangs, rebels and heretics, even on occasion the imperial guard.
Class: Basic

RoF: S/-/-
Dam: 1d10+4 I
Pen: 3
Clip: 10
Rld: Full
Special: Reliable
Weight: 7kg
Availibility: Average

Sheretan Assault Carbine
This simple automatic weapon is a cheap and easy way to boost the short range firepower of poorly trained or low quality troops without stretching a low tech base too far.  As such cultists, PDF troopers, gangers, security troops and rebels love this weapon.

RoF: S/-/6

Looks good. Traditionally, PDF troops and cultists have had solid slug round weapons.

The Klergstop is not a million miles away from the Steadholder Lever Gun (I think it was called), which was a civilian winchester-style rifle in Dark Heresy.

The Sheretan is essentially an autopistol with a bigger magazine.

Supposedly there was a half-track thing called the A70 - it's mentioned in Epic Armageddon, and used the same engine as the chimera.

Twin-linked was, I thought, already a trait in the rulebook?

Many of the SP weapons are rebel/Chaos friendly, like the heavy stubber and the Reaver long rifle from BC. If Necromunda is any indication, there's no reason to shy away from flamers or chain weapons, either.
