    Grenadiers

    Looking through the codex the option for grenadiers sounds appealing since you can have 3 stromtrooper squads as troops and is it possible just to field 6 stromtropper squads as infantry since the other 3 will be elties if so what weapons would be best used.

    I think yes you can use 3 squads as troop choices and 3 as elites, but I wouldn't take just my word for it.

    As for weapons I'd take meltaguns for assault squads and plasma guns for "support" squads.

    Yes you can. If you really wanted to go over the top you could get 3 squads through as elites, 3 Grenadier squads, and 3 Inquisitoral squads making a total of 9 squads.

    Personally I make use of 4 squads of grenadiers/storm troopers. All stuck inside a good ol' heavy bolter ladened chimera each. Their main jobs are forward assault units, and depending on the situation. I usually prefer either flamers or plasma guns in those units.

    I know I know, alot of people don't prefer flamers with storm-troopers. But I prefer making use of them especially when inside a city-fight event, gotta love that 'ignore cover' rule.

    No you can have 3 grenadier squads, 3 normal stormtrooper squads and 4 inquisitorial stormtrooper squads, although that would make for 3 elite and 7 troops choices.
