Hello again everybody, I have begun to start watching an show called Firefly. I was wondering what doctorines to take for a army based on the brown coats in the show.
My thoughts were:
Heavy Weapon Squads
Special Weapon Squads
and I don't know if I should take Light Infantry or something else.
Please can somebody help me with this?

Well before lost nemesis finds this thread ill get a post in.
Veterans would be a must for any group who have been fighting for so long. Heavy weapon squads as rebels tend to have infantry based weapons like RPG launchers instead of tanks as they are easier to move about and conceal. Cameleoline would be great for rebels as they need to hide themselfs from the far stronger enemy forces and as such would be harder to see.

I would not use doctrines at all but rather go with the Catchan Codex. However you are going to have to do Allot of converting if you want your brown coats to look right.

A bit over a year ago now I actually posted a Browncoats (57th Overlanders) army list (at 1500pts)
Look -=HERE=- for the list, but the Doctrines I thought most suited the Browncoats were:
Allow Heavy Weapon Platoons
Skills and Drills: Die Hards
Skills and Drills: Hardened Fighters
Skills and Drills: Light Infantry
I couldn't really see them as veterans, because they were not exactly well trained, but neither could I see them as mere cannon fodder. To solve the dilema I went for Die Hards (because they never give up), and Hardened Fighters (because they were more brawlers than soldiers). Obviously the Light Infantry is to explain their lack of decent body armour, and their reliance on a more stealthy approach - they didn't just march into battle one rank after another. A distinct lack of armoured backup meant that they had to rely on man-portable heavy weapons, shown by the Heavy Weapon Platoons, and their predominant use of Autocannons and Heavy Bolters showing the difference between anti-aircraft guns (used on ground targets) and heavy anti-infantry machineguns .

That sounds about right actually. Because they were brown coats I'd say that camoline doesn't make much sense.
