i know there has been previous topics about this codex but how exactly can i attach a deathworld unit from the codex onto my imperial guard army, plus do i need to pick a certain amount of troop choices or an hq or what. any help would be great help.
I'm not really sure how you can attach them, mabey using two force organization charts. But i know that if you take the jungle fighter docterine, you can use chatachan models. It sure is greath though to see another catchcan player. Keep at it!

How many Inquisitors does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Three,
one to screw it in, one to outlaw lightbulbs, and one to deny lightbulbs ever existed.

to be honest im not though i do like the catachan sniper rules which are very effective units for scaring the crap out of people
i have read the codex and this is about as close to how you can have an attachment from deathworld units but again fails to say anything such as limits on what can be taken or what units are a neccessity e.g. an HQ from the codexyou can use it to add units of Deathworld Veterans to a standard Imperial Guard force. These additions represent detachments from a Deathworld Veteran army that has been at war for a considerable period of time and has been moved from one warzone to another. These detachments are being combined with elements of other Imperial Guard regiments along the way.
Actually it says that "if you wish simply to add units of deathworld veterans to a standard Imperial Guard force, then you should make use of the Jungle Fighters Regimental Doctirne." When you wanted to attach DWV units to a standard guard army in the original Catachan Codex it let you upgrade any catachan unit to DWV for +3pt a model. Let you put 0-2 Assult teams in a catachan command platoon. Alowed you to use DWV sentinels, Devils, and DWV Snipers. The biggest catch was any unit that could set up in ambush was not albe to if used in a standard guard force but could infiltrate if the mission permited it.
"Official! The graves of warriors who have given thier lives for the Emperor now outnumber the stars themselves."
I don't think you are allowed to just attach DWVs to a standard Guard list. The codex says you should use the Jungle Fighters doctrine, as Henchman quotes, but this doctrine just gives infantry some of the abilities of Jungle Fighters. It doesn't give an army access to DWV army list choices.
You might have to go with 2 force orgs to make this work.
If you're most interested in snipers, I'd recommend you look at Codex: Cityfight. It also gives access to snipers (as well as broader access to demo charges).
