hey i just had a question about the carpace armor doctrin.
in the docktrin that talkes about it, it says can be given to any guard infantry.
so i was wondering what squads can take it, cause in the codex only the normal troops infantry platoon are called guard infantry, so can you give it to vetren squads or rough rider or other squads.
basically im asking which units in an imperial guard army may be given the carapce armor doctrine.
Page 55 of the Guard Codex, bottom left corner of the page states what units are guard infantry and who aren't.
EDIT: But yes, veterans can use carapace armour, but if you pick the doctrine and give Carapace to your vets you'll have to give it to everyone else aswell. If you pick it you get the option of giving it to a) all Infantry b) all Rough Riders or C) Both.
just take storm troopers. they are basically vets except thye only get two special weapons.
And they don't get heavy weapons. And you have to pay extra to infiltrate them.Originally Posted by box
You don't have option C, and option A would have to include RR. You can choose to apply a special equipment doctrine to only rough riders, but if you apply it to infantry you would have to give it to your rough riders as well.Originally Posted by Kaiser
