Do cadians use airborne regiments? I was thinking an airborne guard army would be pretty cool but i would like to use cadians to represent it.
Drop troops doctrine fits the fluff nicely. you could even invest in some of forgeworlds aircraft if you have the money.
I'd give them all some kind of backpack similar to the ones off the heavy weapon sprue to represent parachutes, or you could mod some space marine backpaks to look like grav chutes.
here's a pretty cool looking drop army from our friends at the canadian GW.
The Imperial guard are so numerous that its completely likely they'd have an airborne regiment. In fact I'd be surprised if there was an environment that the guard couldn't fight in.
I'd say Cadians proberley would have a airborne regiment.
But just because you buy Cadian models, doesn't mean that you have to call them cadians...:yes:
By day he fought with sword and shield.....
By night he fought with pen and parchment.....
He was....The Warrior Poet.......

Do you have uber micro...????
As has been stated, you don't have to call Cadians 'Cadians', fluffwise hundreds of regiments across the galaxy are modelled on the Cadians and look very similar.
I don't believe Cadians have drop troops though.. Drop troops tend to come from worlds where they learn those kind of skills naturally, because then the guard doesn't have to waste effort training them. An example would be the Harakoni, who come from a mountainous world with lots of sheer drops, and can judge wind currents and thermals very well, because they use gliders to get around.
You could easily convert your 'cadian' minis into the Harakoni Warhawks with a little bit of GS and some spare bits.
@The_Giant_Mantis - I thought the Harakoni came from a low gravity world with plenty of wind currents. Where are you finding your fluff I love stuff on the warhawks and would be happy if somebody had found something on them :yes:
unfortunatly not much on the warhawks are written.
being as the harkonis have to compete with the elysians for main drop troops
most armies that dont as models dont have similar "fluff" regiments
you could make subtle changes like on the lasgun choping of that top part

I use drop troops, but think about this. Why would soldiers fight with parachutes on their back? Therefore its probably not necessary to model the parachute. (grav chute, whatever.)
