Hello all. Seeing as my games workshop has no-one playing catachan I've decided to start them.
This is my first list for catachan so I would greatly appreciate any constructive critisism.
The name is 666 because that's the number of the raffle ticket I won the catachans. (40 regular men, 2 sentinels, Heavy Weapons box, codex)
Our gaming group does 1 Hq 1 Troop for 500 points.
666th 'Devil' Worshippers
Colonel- power weapon, bolt pistol, x2 vets, x2 grenade launchers, 86 points
Lieutenant- shotgun 21 points
Vet Infantry Squad- x6, flamer, heavy flamer 77 points
Vet Infantry Squad- x6, grenade launcher, heavy bolter 68 points
Heavy Weapon Squad- x2 vets, autocannon 43 points
Mortar Squad- x2 vets, mortar 58 points
Vet Assault Squad- x4 vets, x2 demo charges, plasma gun 72 points
Sentinel- smoke launchers, rough terrain mod 53 points
Vet Sniper- x1 20 points
Thanks in advance.

Just to warn you some of what you may know from the old Catachan codex is going to be obselete real soon if it isn't aleady (like the vet sniper). Though some things are still available if your opponent lets you use Jungle fighting rules and you take the Jungle Fighters doctrine (like the vet sniper)
Other than that the list is more or less a basic nilla guard unit.
Why will the catachans become obsolete? Do you mean when the new guard codex comes out, or have you heard something different?
Um the new codex is already out.
It more or less supercedes the old catachan rule book and for all offical tournaments I'm pretty sure Catachan book is now a persona non grata for IG units.
Look up on this forum a discussion we had on deathworld units. In it is a link to the current legal stuff for deathworld (read catachan) units. its still possible to do a deathworld unit but you have to fit it into very specific parameters.
