hiya, this is my first post so please be kind
i was wondering it is still possible to use the abhuman doctrines back in white dwarf issue 302. i had a guard army with the afriel strain doctrine and would like to use in the 5th edition, but not sure if it is legal or not.
any suggestions will be great. thanx
p.s i love this forum, i think it is great
Hi, welcome to the forums!
With the new codex the doctrine system is no longer, however if you can work out a good way of working it into the new codex then in a friendly game most people won't have a problem with it as long as you're open about it at the start of the game.

Just back-up here really. Officially no, no doctrines, so no abhumans. Alas, it's just one of many things hasn't caught up with 5th ed yet (and may never do).
It depends largely where you play however, if you're playing with a group of like minded friends then I could see no problems with using the rules virtually as they stand, they have been balanced after all (though not with the new rules in mind). If you were going to convert the models however, you could always use them as conscripts in a standard game regardless, sub-humans doing service to the emperor despite there disabilities.
If you went for the hardier variety (If I remember correctly there are a couple of flavours) then you could perhaps use them as penal legion instead?
Hope this helps!

Afriel strain were the albino gentically engineered super soldiers. So you could represent them as vets with carapace maybe? Or even just vets. That's the good thing about the new codex, you can now have competent troops that can score.
