Model them how you see fit, as long as it's clear that they are either armed with just a bolter or a bolt pistol and ccw. I've used some Imp Guard pieces as close combat weapons, including pickaxes and shovels. For one I even modelled a brick. For modelling, I file the aquilla of the chest. Prime with Chaos Black. Then use a Iyandsen Darksun Foundation across the entire torso, legs, head, and power pack. For the arms I only paint the forearms in this colour, and on the shoulderpads only the inset area. Two coats should be needed for consistency of this. Then I'll paint over the inset of the shoulderpads with Blood Red (goes down beautifully over the foundation). With a 20/0 brush I'll paint the piping on the helmet chaos black, and the soft-armour (behind the knees, around the hips) chaos black. And then paint on the angry face onto one shoulderpad (can't remember if this one goes on the right or left...my minis are not in front of me and I can't be stuffed going to get them). Also do parts of the powerpack in black. Using the 20/0 I'll also do the eyes in blood red. For weaponary, drybrush of boltgun metal is your friend. Almost every weapon can be painted quickly in this manner effectively. When writing your army, for your traits take as a notable divergence "No Mercy, No Respite", "Take the Fight to Them" and "Eye to Eye". Pretty much the main thing to keep in mind with these traits is that any space marine may swap his bolter for a bolt pistol + ccw for free. VITAL when against 4th ed Chaos! Here's a 1000 point army to get you started. Good luck, OP.
