    Kasrkin are basically Cadian stormtroopers. According to fluff there better trained, but it doesnt really make a difference on the tabletop, so, yes, they are the same thing.

    I don't know if they are better trained fluff wise, but I do know that Kasrkin are technically Grenadiers and not storm troopers that deepstrike or infiltrate.

    Kasrkin's look a hell of a lot cooler

    Other than that, no gameplay difference.

    Really? They can't deep strike? Can you just claim that the Kasrkins are storm troopers and therefore they can deep strike/Infiltrate?

    I thought Karskins could deepstrike according to one of my friend(he collects IG) he could be cheating but i'm not to sure.

    Kasrkin are actually better, I forget why but if you look in codex eye of terror they are slightly better than storm troopers- possibly better bs?

    The only difference is the name and the look of the models. Kasrkin is the Cadian word for Grenadier, it's as simple as that.

    Fluffwise, there's a difference.

    Kasrkin are IG veterans with special equipment and training, as are all Grenadiers.

    Stormtroopers are not part of the IG at all. They're trained by the Scholae Progenium and attached to Imperial commanders.

    As for which is better, who knows. I'd hazard a guess that the average Kasrkin has probably seen more action, but the Stormtroopers are trained from birth to do their jobs, so you can expect them to be crazily loyal and commited.

    Not all stormtroopers look the same. You can represent stormtroopers with Kasrkin models if you want.
