Hey, i just picked up an IG codex, because i plan to start a cadians army. but i cant seem to find where the Kasrkin units can be found? they look really badass but what are they? just basic troops? is there a cadians-specific codex? or are these guys in like, armageddon or chapter approved?
Kasrkin are just Stormtroopers under a different name, thats really all, no huge secret super unit being hidden away from newcomers.

Just kiddin thanks, so i should just treat them as storm troopers? same stats, no special rules or anything?
There just stormtroopers in the new codex. In the eye of terror codex Kasrkins were stormtroopers that counted as Troop choices. Thats it. There Stormtroopers.

The Grenadiers doctrine allows you to take storm troopers as troop choices.
Kasrkin is just a name for a group of people, like Cadians or Catachans. Though Kasrkin troops have the reputation of being some of the most well trained and elite men in the IG, so they are usually used as storm trooper squads.
Just like everything else, its a model with a story behind it. Use it how you like.

Kasrkin are Cadians with better training. Kasr-kin you know, kin from the Kasr, like Kasr Sonnen and Kasr Holn. It's what Cadians call their cities or something.
That's why you can use them as troops, because they aren't stormtroopers but grenadiers who are raised together with the regiments. Stormtroopers come from specialised regiments.
EDIT: But you buy them as stormtroopers of course :)
do you have to acually buy the grenadier doctrine to use them as troops instead of elites?
