The backpack is no cosmetic, that's the part that gives Breachers a 5++ and Strikers only 6++ if a Guardian Drone is nearby.
Trying to stay as WYSIWYG as possible

Fluff-wise, I'd imagine these are "elites" or "spec-ops" type of veterans, painted differently than the rank and file grunt.
My hope is that I can use these multi-armed veterans as a flexible multipurpose unit, filling in for both breachers or strike teams whenever needs arise. [...]

I'd give 2 or 3 a Blaster, another 2-3 Rifles, anyone else gets a carbine. And then you might glue extra parts on them like more grenades/ammo than other models in your army normally have, maybe another weapon dangling on a girdle.

Treat each other with Respect.
This can't be over-stressed. Intelligent criticism from an informed position is encouraged, but cut-downs and sarcasm are not. Preview your post before you submit it. Is it possible the other person will be insulted or will misunderstand your points? If so, edit it. If you're too irritated to think straight, come back and post later when you're feeling more diplomatic. Remember, our foremost goal as a community is to help each other improve, not to set up "pecking orders" or show off our superior intelligence/understanding/martial prowess. A little bit of humility in your posts goes a long way towards getting folks to listen to what you have to say: remember, many of the folks reading your posts have been playing for a darn long time and know their stuff.
