death korps of krieg (forge world)
can some one tell me if the jungle fighters doctrine can use the rules from the catachan codex
Nope,jungle fighters have only abilities which are in doctrine info,i think it is inflitrate ability in woods and 6+ save,no deathworld stuff like ambushes,traps or even patrols
-These are Eldar?I thought they would be taller.....

thanks can you tell me if you can upgrade veterans to jungle fighters
because it says that you can upgrade any imperial guard infantry unit
While you cannot use a IG structure along with the DW Vets codex, the general consensus I've seen on LO is that a pure DWV army can be fielded according to the Codex. I think the latest version of the IG codex doesn't allow for mixing and matching. For example, you cannot field a Deathworld Veterans army and then begin to add doctrines light Sharpshooters, etc. If you take Deathworlds, that's what you get.
Myself, I have created an army that I can switch back and forth between the two. I have an army list that I'll use for the majority of my play according to the IG Codex and an army list that I will use specifically when my army is on its homeworld according to the Catachan Codex. I would recommend you do the same, since your fielding a DWV is almost entirely dependent on your opponent's approval. Fair? Maybe not. But it's the rules.
P.S. There are certain armies that will be more likely to desire to play according to the jungle rules with you, such as Tau. Others will likely steer far and wide from an infiltrated jungle.
I play with Cadian bottoms and Vraksian top. Too bad that wasnt an option.

I use cadian models as well. Heck who can afford otherwise, but I mod heavily:

IMO the poll isn't that great because you forgot a lot of other things like Vostroyans, Steel Legion, Valhallans, etc.
But anyways, I use Cadian models. Also if I can find the money, I plan get some of the old storm trooper models to use as hardened vets.
There is no such thing as a plea for innocence in my court. A plea for innocence is guilty of wasting my time. Guilty.

as qsd said your poll is appaling, it is short of more than half IG armies, also it has been done many times before
Everything you have been told is a lie!
There are quite a few more regiments than the few that you listed as choices.
It would be better to ask an open question rather than restrict the answers to a poll.
As far as your question in your post (which had nothing to do with the poll), you can use jungle fighters as a doctrine (and 4 others) and call your models Catachans if you wish.
You can choose not to use jungle fighters and still call your models Catachan.
You can also use the DWV codex with your opponents permission.
NB: just because you use Catachan models, does not mean that they have to be Catachans.
It's worth a krak!
