I have been getting ready to build my ig army, but I was wondering....
would it be possible to intertwine lets say a steel legion regiment and a shock troop regiment all into the same army and still be with in the rules of play. And in some crazy way could I fit Catachan in there too. PLez send feed back.
I assume you're talking about models, if so sure, a guardsman is a guardsman. If you mean actual armies, you can try to pick doctrines for variety as long as you don't go over.

but it rocks absolutely, too!
If you want to use the Cadian doctrines for some troops, Steel Legion Doctrines for other troops and Catachan doctrines for yet more troops, then you are out of luck. That would involve, about 17 doctrine choices. Feel free to combine the models, or to pick and choose up to five of the doctrines, but you can't have 'em all.Originally Posted by hitman20
However, you can choose the doctrine that defines the unit. Try this:Originally Posted by Tomjoad
Take Cadians as infantry squads, steel legion for armoured fist, add in storm troopers or grenadiers in Chimera, and Catachans as vets with jungle fighter. If you want to use more Catachans, take veterans as well. Other good choices are conscript platoons and special weapons squads, but you can always choose ID, sharpshooters, ogryns, ratlings, or any of the other available choices. Choose what HQ you want to use by doctrine or eq: Catachans get jungle fighters, Steel Legion get a Chimera, and Cadians are given whatever Cadian type doctrine you choose, sharpshooters or ID. From fast, choose only the proper pattern of sentinel and hellhounds (I don't know the fluff about them, but it seems right to me), and then whatever heavies you want except heavy weapon platoon.

Yo, thanx for all the great info. I liked the idea of getting an army combined wiht all its streghths I jus didnt know if I could.
Maby not all its strenghts, but left overs, they could be the reminents of various companys, mashed together after a bad campain,use doctorins and give a few sqds spesific things, it wont be possible to use ALL the Rgts rules, but with doctorines you could get away with some.

U should use em as detachment armies, so really you would have 3 allied armies fighting as one force. can you do that? im guessing you need an agreement?
