    Which codex for renegades?

    This may be a dumb question, but I've been out of the hobby for some time.

    I see a bunch of "Renegade" figures on Forgeworld's site and I see mention of them here and there. What codex are they part of ? Are they in the IG codex? Are they in any codex at all or are they just IG that have been decorated with a chaos theme?

    It is very easy to make a chaos themed army using the Imperial Guard codex (tournament legal as well)

    i always thought Chem Inhalers would be cool in a chaos themed army, along with lots of commissars (evil commissars, they dont really care if they have to kill one of their own men )

    For standard codices, you should use the Imperial Guard codex. However, I believe Imperial Armour has (or is going to have) rules for the Renegade forces themselves, so either way.

    Imperial Armour: Seige of Vraks does have a renegade ruleset. Not tou\rny legal, but it is fun and you can always use it with friends.

    It is a very interesting and flavorfull list, similar in comparison to the IG dex.

    agree with the others, IG would be perfect and still be tourny legal, you would just not have to be too outrageous with your conversions, or at least make sure you can see what model they are from the dex. Then for friendlies you could use the FW renegade list

    If you do use the gaurd codex take conscripts and model them to look like slaves taken and forced to fight for their evil masters and plant an independent commisar in there to represent the slave driver. Plant this on the objective then laugph as the opponent has to prettymuch kill off all 50 mento remove them frop scoring status in 5th edition because face it with ld 10 they aren't going anywhere fast.

    Firstly, the new Guard codex is coming out the middle of next year. Supposedly, this version will not have doctrines, and will be organised much differently than it is now. Secondly, the GW website has a mutant datasheet for Apocalypse, which has 10-30 model groups of mutants with a few upgrades, and the ability to take half of them as big mutants.

    I hope I have been helpful.
