Default Doctrine question

Would it be a decent combo to go with:

Storm trooper squads
Grenadiers
Harden fighters
chem inhailers

?

chem inhalers are generally regarded as a points sink.

Why?

Seems nice to go pinned rather than fall back if your tactic is to get into CC asap. Everybody fights, no body quits.

I want to run squads of hardened grenadier storm troopers on chem inhailers behind leman rus tanks up to the enemy lines, then charge out and assault. Everyone armed with shotguns or CC weapon and pistol and grenades.

Personally I think Iron Discipline is a far superior Doctrine.

I know. I mean take Iron Discipline instead of Chem Inhalers. Much better and much cheaper in my opinion.

Chem inhalers is a step up from Iron Discipline, both in results and cost. If you like it, take it. If not, don't.

As for the last Doctrine... I'd need regimental fluff.

Well actually, Iron Discipline is a good deal cheaper, since you only have to give it to officers.

What are you so worried about. They are stormtroopers. Normally when storm troppers fall back they have good reason. That is where iron dis comes in. They will be able to regroup
