    The Cadians are very good, there is nothing wrong with them at all.

    Cadians are just like any other Guard and all the guard Are great you just have to learn to play them.

    Actually, Cadians are ofcourse Cadians - but you&#39;re not limited to play them under Cadian doctrines. This is a mistake many newcomers to the IG do, they think the different regiments of the Imperium actually have different abilities and properties - which is pretty much wrong.

    I myself use a mix of Cadians (old and new) together with Mordians and play vanilla guard without doctrines.

    There&#39;s only one army in the IG codex and that is... the Imperial Guard. The rest (like Cadians, Catachans etc) are merely an IG army with doctrines slapped on them. Granted, a few of these pre-made doctrine mixes have more doctrines than a home-grown army would be allowed to have, but that&#39;s about it.

    There&#39;s nothing the Cadians can have which is unique for them, and the same goes for any army - except maybe Catachans in the Catachan codex.

    Phreed: "There&#39;s nothing the Cadians can have which is unique for them, and the same goes for any army."

    *"A Cadian army of at least 1500 points my be led by Creed" (p.50, IG Codex). No other IG regiment may use Creed.

    *Also, a Cadian army can use their &#39;own&#39; doctrines as given on page 58 of the IG codex. This list of doctrines is unique as it allows the player to use 7 Doctrines rather than 5 to represent their own glorious history. Though you mentioned this already, it is unique to Cadians and therefore noteworthy, as you previously stated that regiments having different abilities was pretty much false. The Cadians apparent ability is to use more Doctrines

    I believe the distinction we are searching for lies between &#39;Cadian miniatures&#39; and the &#39;Cadian regiments&#39;.

    We should try to stay on the topic that is &#39;are the Cadians a good starting point&#39;. I believe that they are a good starting point. Lets try not to confuse the new guy

    well you are right on creed but you can never ever ever have more then 5 doctines. YEs I understand that in the new codex there are 7 on soem of the other regiments but it states that not all companies have all the same doctines and it is jsut a rule to have only 5 doctines.

    But on toipic any army is great to start with as long as you stick to the codex, dont read catachans codex or anything like that. JUst select doctiens you like or in fact dotn pick any. Pick a model you like and stick with it. I love catachans so my army will be a basic IG army with catachan models and some of there doctines.

    did you not read what i wrote at all. Any IG army may have them if you wish. If I really liked them I would put then in my catachan army if i really really wanted too.
