    Why are all cadian soldiers left handed?

    Don't you find it weird when you are putting your troops together that they are all left handed? It just doesn't look right to me. I guess cadian troops my be drilled to all fight in the same way but on the other hand (Pun lol) it would make sense to let a soldier fire a weapon with his preferred hand or it may impair his marksmanship.

    Sorry, have I missed something here? I'm right handed, and I hold a rifle in exactly the same way as all the Cadians.

    Unless you're referring to the sergeants, in which case, I'd have the chainsword in my right hand, which is my better clubbing hand. Cue strong-right-arm jokes?

    the Cadians are most definitely right handed.

    I thought the hand that you used to hold the butt of the weapon determine whether you were holding it left handed or right handed?

    Bottom line is they all hold there weapons the same way, don't you think that looks a bit wired as they don't fight in blocks of infantry anymore so why give them all the same look?

    They look different so long as you take time with the poses and use spare bits to mix it up.

    not as wierd as sergeants wielding pistols twice the size of their own heads, seriously take the laspistol from the Shock Trooper box and place it next to a trooper's leg, it runs from waist to shin! now I'm no expert on guns but a Desert Eagle is only, what? 26 cm, (10.25 inches)?

    I shoot rifles all the time. They shoot right handed. Handedness when you shoot a rifle has NOTHING to do with how good the shot is. It's your eyes. I shoot left handed with guns, but I write right handed. If you're so intent to determine the handedness of the cadians, they are right handed seeing as they hold the grip with their right hand. and when they hold their eye to the sight, they would close their left eye and look through their right because that is their dominant eye.

    Generally eye and hand dominance are the same, but there are rare occasions it is opposite like myself.

    I know that they dont have an ejection port but...
    The SA80 has to be fired right handed or you get all the spent casings in your face (cant be good) perhaps its just a hangover from using autoguns (perhaps in training), plus its just probs easier to sculpt everyone as right handed.

    Not to mention, it makes weapon swaps and modeling waaaay easier.
    It's worth a krak!
