Re: Warhammer 40k fluff thread VI: They see me Ward'en, they haten
I always got the impression that Bolt weapons were not unusual for Colonels, Majors, and Commissars. I don't think they were actually "standard issue", but at that rank you get to use your influence to get your hands on special gear, and you can get techpriests to maintain your gear for you. Cain's choice of gear seems to be the bare minimum for Commissars, I always got the impression that he's been using the same chainsword and laspistol he was issued with at the Schola. With the exception of some Carapace armor he hasn't really made an effort to get his hands on better gear. Which is a little odd, I would imagine that there must be at least one noble family on Perlia that tried to foist some family heirlooms onto him after the whole Korbul thing.
