Well to be fluffy youhave to man you have to. But ya they are pretty good for 10 pts a pop with a save of +4 and they have AP 6 to kill nids and orcs. THey automatcially have krak and frag nades. Deepstrike and infiltrate. BS 4 and WS 4 is always nice. I couldnt say they are bad really. But I like vets better but thats because I play with catachans and they are allowed heavy weapons.

Purely depends on what else you have in your army and senario special rules. If it is a take & hold or similar and there is deep strike, take them with deep strike. But if it is just a stanadard mission, I'd scrap them and take more line squads.

Grenadiers (Stormtrooper army?) may not Deep Strike or Infiltrate.
IG since '95.
but Grenadiers can still use chimars
I was thinking of doing the same thing!

the deepstrike ability is always helpful.. but ive always wondred. wats the diff between storm troopers and kaskrin? are they just different models or is there any special rules. doesnt say anything in the codex[SIZE=1]
Unless I missed something going over my new IG codex just now, Kasrkins are pretty much just regular stormtroopers with a different name and new (very cool) models.
Kasrkin are really just the grenadiers, technically, but nobody's going to complain if you use them in place of regular stormtroopers as well, as they will spend too much time gawking at the sick-ass models to really care.
The funniest use for stormtroopers is tooling the squad out with meltaguns, then deepstriking them directly behind an enemy tank and cooking it from the inside out.
Karskins are just the "cadian" variant of stormtroopers but you can just use them as stormtrooper

Storm Troopers rock!!!! I have a small force of them (grenadier army) and they play very well! I back them up with 3 Sentinals with multi-lasers for some more firepower also.
