Basically, if I were you and I were making the stats for these guys, I'd bump skill down to 1d6, make movement the default 5", and for armor just do 1d6+1, for a total CP cost of 7 CPs, minus weapons. That gives you a 16-CP minifig with the laser carbine, which is a whole point off your original cost. If I wanted a slightly more elite trooper, I'd bump skill up to 1d6+1, and give him 2d6 AV, for a total base cost of 11 CPs, which goes to 20 with the laser carbine.
I'm not trying to tell you how to run your army, but if I were you, I'd just slog through the 2001 rules (not even the whole thing, just the custom minifig section - I think it's section 9 or something) and build your troopers by the book. After all, nobody's going to blame you for using 2001 rules to make your troops and then play using 2005. If anything, 2001 is slightly underpowered compared to '05.

Warhead wrote: My view of the 2 use is that it should be for rapid fire weapons that effect an area and so are hard to miss with. They come with a short range as most are assault/close in weapons.
16" range is odd added to a use of 2 it becomes almost a sniper rifle. I think this to be a bit much for standard equipment.

Anyway, just some hopefully helpful critique from an interested party. The Mini-Figs look fine, are you going to make THAT many?
