The Ordo Hereticus Sisters of Battle see action on countless worlds. Their tanks show the typical wear and tear of hard use and action yet they also exude the holy emperor bothering, in the words of Commissar Cain, purity of their beliefs. To try and create this weathering was applied to the lower part of the hull while hardcoat varnish was layered to the upper part of the hull and turret to give it a sheen of holiness.

The IG armoured fist unit was a compomise by a committee of desk pilots who had been investigated by Inquistor Ignatius Hawk for Xenos connections. The unit itself is not particularly fast unless if forgoes much of its fire power, it is not especially good at assault, it has a mediocre ballistic skill, and it lacks decent fire power for a unit that should be striking at the heavies behind enemy lines. One solution is to use the unit as a mobile firebase. To be effective an upgrade to the basic Chimera's firepower is sorely needed. A bespoke upgraded turret that houses one of the Cadian IG autocannons and a rebuilt front hull to mount a twin linked heavy bolter, while a heavy stubber graces the hatch on the turret. The squad needs to take ranged fire power that adds even greater punch.

Imperial Guard commanders may when expedient press abhuman races into service when conscripts or other manpower resources dry up. Inquisitorial or Ecclesiarchical certificates of exemption and approval are usually sought by cautious commanders just in case they fall foul of local planetary regulations and find their newly formed units exterminated for the heresy of mutation.
The Ratkin are not actually mutants but are deviant humans who have sought escape from the stresses of Imperial Civil life through the cult of the Rattus Immortalus Perfectus. This cult is supressed by the Inquisition but as it reappears regularly hopping from world to world stowed away on starships many take the pragmatic view that these toughened and aggressive creatures that can be trained to obey orders might as well serve the emperor as cannon fodder as in their death they will be returning to the imperium some measure of what they owe for their life and upbringing.
