For everyone that likes Warhammer 40k Tabletop and Dawn of War Games or anything to do with Warhammer 40K.

equiped with an extrasmal "ladyedition" boltpistol.
Seems like they still use 9mm in the future.
Same size Imperial Guard use. Only Astartes use bigger versions of the various bolt weapons due to their much bulkier build.
I thought the bolt pistol was a 50cal? or is it the same 75cal as the standard bolter?
Well, I thought the Heavy Bolter was .75 because Bolt Pistol and Bolter have the same size.
Hmm so the bolt pistol is 75 too, as for the heavy bolter it uses even a bigger cal crazy right?
40k-style crazy. So according to Lexicanum, the Bolter fires a .75cal shell for standard. The bolt pistol's calibre is not defined, but I am pretty sure it's possible to use the same ammo in pistols and bolters in the Deathwatch RPG, so they are both .75cal. Which means that the Heavy Bolter, being even larger, must be at least 1cal. In combination with their actual workings and explosive charge, it's no wonder these things can crack through light tank armour.
Most descriptions of the Bolt Pistol have it as a "Shorter-ranged, lower-ammo compact-size bolter", so I'd agree that it seems the pistol uses the same bolt rounds.
(I think the actual quote is "The Bolt Pistol sacrifices range, fire rate and ammo capacity in return for a more compact size and increased tactical felixibility", implying that the mechanism etc. are identical to a full-size bolter).
Anyway, I'd bet that in her hands it does just as much damage as a full-size bolter; probably even more when her Faith is running hot.
What about the Kraken Bolter shots? Now thats something i wanna know
