    What do you think about carapace armour?

    Should it be mandatory for all units, how come a 6-man heavy weapons squad pays the same price as 10 infantry, or 5 in a command squad?

    Also, how do you people model carapace armour? (assuming it is on cadians?)

    One thing one could do is to take the Alternate Regimental Organisation - Grenadiers, Skills and Drills - Veterans and Special Equipment - Carapace Armour. This would allow you to take..."Hardened Veteran Storm Troopers"&#33;&#33;&#33; They cost virtually the same points as standard Storm Troopers and have the same stat line. Moreover, they can take THREE special weapons AND a heavy weapon. Furthermore, you can have standard Storm Troopers as Troops choices and "Hardened Veteran Storm Troopers" as Elites.

    I&#39;m thinking of trying it. Using the inquisitorial (standard) Storm Trooper miniatures for the “Hardened Veteran Storm Troopers� and the Kasrkins as the Grenadiers. What does everyone think? Cool, huh?

    One problem is that they&#39;d be outnumbered most of the time though...I think... <_<

    Another advantage they have is that they get Infiltrators for free. Lastly, you can also take the Alternate Regimental Organisation - Drop Troops to get free Deep Strike for the "Hardened Veteran Storm Troopers" as they count as Guard Infantry. :blink:

    for mine i used green stuff and bulked out their armor platings. all you hafta do is take a look at the kasrkin model (use the one in the codex if u don&#39;t have one. that&#39;s what i did) and then you just make shoulderpads and kneepads and all the other extra armor on the kasrkins. don&#39;t forget the gloves though. they make a nice touch.

    Well I am making a fluffy army based on a regiment from a planet lost to the Nids. So I have been spending way too much cash on buying a gaunt for every guard and chopping the guts out of the gaunt shells and strapping it to their backs. Makes good carapace armor and fills the Xeno-Fighters area.
    I put the Laughter back into Slaughter.
