I am pretty noob at 40k, having played only 1 game (and a baby one at that) and I saw a picture that said "inquisitorial stormtroopers" and i thought, hey, aren't they just kasrkins? so can someone tell me, is there a difference or not, and if there is, what is it?
Ok, fluffwise there is a difference. Inquisitorial Stormtroopers are recruited from IG regiments for acts of valour/ skill etc etc. They are then further trained (I assume at the Schola Progenium or somewhere) and better equipped. They can then be attached to any Inq. task force or for IG special Ops.
Kasrkin (Kasr meaning fortress i think, kin meaning well...kin? I think) Grenadiers are from Cadian Grenadier companies. These companies are also recruited from the best soldiers in the regiment. They are trained and armed as per glory boys and serve much the same purpose but only answer to the ministorum, or IG.
Rules wise they are Identical, and you may use either models in IG armies, though you would be unlikely to inlude kasrkin in Inq. armies. Though technically its fine.
Hope this helps. And may your lasgun powercells last as long as duracell ultra.
ok KasrKin are not the standard IG Stormtroopers, they are unique to Cadian shock troops, Other IG use storm troopers specifically trained by the Schola Progenium, classically one or two Storm trooper companies will be attached to an IG regiment, the company will then be broken up and its squads attached to the regular companies. Stormies are not generally trained with the rank and file and mostly are not from the same home world or regiment (Cadia being teh most notable exception as it produces so many IG). This is what results in the rank and files animosity towards storm troopersOriginally Posted by Will J
In game turns there are differences in equipment and price which you will have to aquire codex Witch or demon hunters to get
Everything you have been told is a lie!
thanks. the thing I wanted to know was if there was a stat difference between the inquisitorial and IG stormtroopers (although I'm a bit lazy, I write kasrkin instead cos its shorter but write every other word out in full, just like txting or SMS or whatever you call it). so, I have 2 different answers, yes and no, 1 from each person :blink:.
Sanchez, please be carefull, what you are saying is that you want to know the stat line for inquistorial stormtroopers, to which the answer has to be "Buy the codex"
Everything you have been told is a lie!
Which would doubtless be illigal, and I would not encourage doing so if I were you Sanchez The mods get itchy about that kind of thing. Sorry for the confusion dude, listen to Cheradine, he knows his stuff.
Best bet would be to get hold of the WH codex and codex IG and compare them. Besides, anything illigally published on the web may be dodgy at best.
Inquisitorial Stormtroopers are similar, but not the same, as Kasrkin/Stormtroopers. They have different equipment, different options, and use a different armoury.
If you want specifics, I'd strongly suggest buying the codex. There's a lot of crap posted on the internet, and even army builder gets it wrong sometimes.
I dont think there is a problem saying that statwise a unit is identical or not in terms of breaking some type of GW rule. What the stats are is not being revealed, just whether or not they are the same. In relation to this, Big_Sanchez, all stats are freely available as pdf reference sheets at the GW website itself. As a reference source this is quite handy and would have answered your basic question.
What Guardsmen dont want to hear...
"Ok boys, time to fix bayonets!"
Other than saying anything about the statline, ISTs cannot deepstrike or infiltrate and don't come with free Krak Grenades.
The Veteran Sgts have different armouries to pick from, and different vehicles to take.
For one point more, I would much rather have a allied Sister of Battle than an allied IST.
