This is prolly a really newbie question.
Anyway, the sergent for your Infantry squad is there any real add for him to have a hand gun and a melee weapon - over a lasgun.
Same goes for the Infantry platoon Command Squads, i know you buff the J/O officer but with his "gaurds" are they best with lasguns or the two weapon setup.
I think the more lasguns the better but i would love the adds for both
Also, can u add in Catachans and those steel guys to an army of cadians?

It doesn't really make much difference which weapon you choose to arm your sergeants with, it's either an extra s3 attack in melee, or an extra shot at s3 13-24". Just give your sergeants what you think is cooler.

I like the look of the sergent weilding a melee weapon and a pistol of some sort leading a squad.It doesn't really make much difference which weapon you choose to arm your sergeants with, it's either an extra s3 attack in melee, or an extra shot at s3 13-24".

I always had the idea that catachans would make the best looking veterens
Thx for answering my questions
The chainsword arm has chevrons on it, so it's what I use. But yeah, it really doesn't matter.
Black Templar (3000)
Imperial Guard (1500 and growing)
I scrape the chevrons off and paint ranks on the shoulder pads, but still use the ccw arm.
I give them the Pistol and Close Combat Weapon, I like the idea of a Sergeant waving his sword about to give orders to his squad when the noise of battle gets a bit too loud for the more traditional method of sergeanting (shouting loudly).
Also, due my army being entirely Drop Troops I am likely to end up in CC at some point and even if not the lack of the extra shot at long range is a bit of a non issue.
Plus I like having it obvious which one is the sergeant.

most of your damage from lasguns is going to come from rapid fire range, and i usually only get 1 round of 13 inch+ shooting off at most in the game so i go with ccw and laspistol. it also looks cooler
the pistol does the same as the lasgun in rapid fire range as well

Another quick question, i want to use the doctrine "Grenadiars" in my army list (free up the elite spot and add some more stormtroopers).
Now do the stormtroopers go in Platoons or does the squad itself count as a troop spot.
I dont think the rules were really clear on that or it was just me lol.
The Storm Troopers / Grenadiers are used as individual squads in your troops choices so they arnt part of the platoon
