N18 Venators and Juves from recruitment

New to the game, decided to run Venators. After the first game of a new dominion campaign, rolled a 6 for juve recruitment and then noted Venators don't seem to know what to do with them.

Rules say they are treated as normal, so a settlement would entail a roll for recruitment, but venators don't have a juve statline.

Anyone have any solid rules advice so I know what i can do with this poor teenager I just found? Is there an answer or is it only house rules?

Only house rules.

In line with cultists getting a single full cultist for 1 6 and 2 for 2 6s, and stealer cult getting a ganger equivilant on a single 6 and one with a 3rd arm for 2 6s, my group played it that you get a single hunter on a 6 and a single hunter with a legacy on double 6. Another house rule could be a single 6 is a random stat lined hunter, and a double 6 you get to pick which stat line.

I am struggling with the same problem right now. I'm concerned that getting a 50 point hunter is too big of a reward when everybody else is getting 20 - 35 point juve (except GSC, they get a 45 point neophyte). Additional problem: I am the arbitrator for our campaign so I'm trying real hard not to cheat lol.
