Hey just a quick question, is the PDF Catachan list still valid?
If so is there any errata/list of changes to work wirth 5th ed?
I know the alternitive is using the docterine system to make catachans, BUT I want to use my deathworld snipers AS death world snipers, and maybe use Sly Marbo and/or Colonel 'Iron Hand' Straken
Thanks in advance
As seen here:
Games Workshop Canada Community Site
At the bottom of the screen Catachans is still a legal list for Hall of Heroes events for the 2008-2009 season, however that may change when the 2009-2010 season comes up since I have heard they are finally retiring that list as well as a few others in the 40k line.
However, don't let that stop you from playing friendly games with your opponent using that list. Remember, all you have to do is ask their permission if you may use that list to play them and in my time playing those who refuse to play those lists aren't there for what Warhammer is all about; Fun.
Just a note, after glancing at the site again I see that they still have Slayers and few other Storm of Chaos lists up there for Fantasy and I know those weren't legal as of October this year, so its very possible that the website is behind on updating and those listings may be invalid. Sorry I can't be clearer then that, the only other option would be to call GW and ask.

"call GW and ask" - Ha HA HA HA HA HA HAAAAAA !!!!! You'd get better results asking the rulebook. Verbally.
Sorry, couldn't help it. ask your opponent, i'm sure that it'll be fine.

The Catachan Codex that you used to be able to dl from the GW site was updated for the latest IG Codex, but it hasn't been updated for 5th ed rules, that just doesn't happen in GW

Ok thanks guys,
I was simply thinknig of asking my opponent if i could just give them all the same rule as Kroot, where they get '+1' to a cover save if in woods or jungle. (i suppose the snipers would ger a '+2' to saves when in jungle or woods....
I just really like the single snipers, and lets be honest, the snipers you can take with IG suck greatly in comparrison...
ah well... thenkas again GW...
As with the Kroot list they are retired, anyway the doc system is just a good.
If Slaanesh is the god of the Perverse, why does Nurgle have all the filth?
While I'm unable to speak for any specific tournaments, the Catachans Codex is so old that you'd be better off using the standard Codex and doctrines anyway (as major moss said). Cameleoline will give you the save you want and, if you really want a solo sniper, attaching a Vindicare would scratch the itch.
Even if Catachans happens to be legal now, I doubt it will be after our next revision sometime next year. Don't bet your army on being able to use it!
