Are they still available in the 5th edition codex? I have some imperial guard and was wondering if I could add them to my CSM army as traitor guard
Army: Chaos Space Marines
Strategy: KILL EVERYTHING
Rules that I live by: Kick ass, be a good person, and eat alot
You can't add IG to the chaos list, it hasn't been possible in any addition, the only codex that allowed you to mix csm and IG was the LatD list that has long since been scrapped.
You can use it in firendly games with your opponents permission for for tournaments it's a no go.
The only other list we have at this moment is the servants of slaughter list from IA6.
Weren't you able to do it with the old Eye of Terror Codex from like 2nd or 3rd edition?
As to your question, no you can't include traitor guard in a chaos space marines army.
Just use the IG codex but make the units Chaosy. I am hoping to make a Traitor Guard army myself.
"They say the Darkness consumes you. They don't say what happens after It's done."
You can likely use them in an Apocalypse game. If your opponent doesn't care, then it should all be fine.
My Apocalypse army of 5k pts has Chaos, Daemons and a Stormlord (with Latd inside as the "guardsmen")
im using the FW renegade conversion kits and running my army using standard IG codex and rules; just chaosifying everything for looks and making stand in models where needed like Plague Zombies for Conscripts.
May the "Nurgley Goodness" protect you!
I played a LatD before and I am now playing a Traitor Guard with the current guard codex.
I used my mutants as conscripts
I used my traitors as guards
My big mutants are now ogryns
Nobody seems to mind about it since the codex is legal and all my figurines are from GW.
I also play a space marine army with night lord models and drop pods. They rules !

Speaking to the Forgeworld chaps at the openday in April the new IA vol7 book due out soon has both the krieg and traitor guard lists updated in line with the new guard codex. In the forgeworld traitor list in IA6 you could mix in the odd CSM unit into the guard taking them as elites choices.

well according to the guard codex only the infantry because if any case that guard to betray the imperium the adeptus mechanicus denies them all tanks and armour! Thats why they have seperate departments!
