    Stormtroopers - are Cadian Kasrkin still in

    I hope so, coz I've got bucketloads of them.

    I know that my opponent can OK them, but are they still GW legal

    Yep, Kasrkin can be used as stormtroopers. You could actually use pretty much any model as a stormtrooper, provided it was suitable. E.I. fancy gun, heavy armour, lots of equipment.

    If you want to get nitpicky, the Kasrkin models could be considered "more legal" than the older Storm Trooper models... and I don't think GW have released any others.

    Any GW model is legal as long as it's WYSIWYG.

    I agree wholeheartedly, I made my plans with 4ed rules and 4ed IG Codex

    A worried look always appears when GW change a Codex... Kasrkins are not in the 5ed IG Codex... remember the Iron Fist squad

    Admittedly there was only a photo and caption ref to Kasrkin (p15) in 4ed and used the term Grenadier... however, GW does indeed have Kasrkin listed as Troopers (as in Storm Trooper)

    But, yes alas, no ref at all in 5ed

    It's a bit of a moot point, as "Kasrkin" have never been a codex entry anyway; Kasrkin are simply Cadian Storm Troopers. They are modeled with carapace armour and hellguns, so there's absolutely no problem using them as they follow the rules for WYSIWYG (which is the most important rule for models to abide by).

    Thanks LN, I was eagerly expecting that response...

    I partially believed that the old Storm Troopers were Scola Progenium trained, while the Kasrkin were elite Cadian Shock Troops (Cadian Special Forces if you like) and although they can be classed as Storm Troopers.

    Well, thats the way I took it... so thanks again for backing that up.

    As I said I've got quite a few - 105 in three platoons

    Didn't they have rules back in the eye of terror codex? Anyway that 'dex isn't legal and since they were the last stormtroopers to be released by GW I have no problem thinking that they're legal. If anyone says otherwise smack them with the old codex.

    Stormtroopers are elites now, so the best you can do is field 30 of them. Why you'd want to do that, though, is beyond me.

    I guess you could just model them as veterans with carapace armor as well.
