Default Famous Regiments question

When using a "famous regiment's" doctrines, and it includes say Xenos-Fighters, do you have to use it, or can you just not use it and ignore it?

No, as long as the army has 5 or less doctrine points. I would think if you did, say Cadians with out grenadiers, you'd have a non cadian army with more than 5 doctrine points, which would be illegal since your army is a famous regiment. At least that's what I say.

well if you take cadians you don't have to use grenadiers, its not like "OMG! that cadian army doesn't have kasrkin, DIE HERETIC!!!!" im sure you can just ignore the xenos fighters rule, don't know why you'd want to, i mean hitting on 3+ against eldar is amazing.

If you use a famous regiment then you must take all Doctrines listed.

since they get more rules than normal regiments shouldn't they be considered special characters.

No. It's a way of rewarding people with metal minis.

I don't count Cadians, because they are lousy. :

That is stupid...I want to use Valhallans, but I dislike the Ork fighters, and it costs a ton to buy Valhallans AND ork models for converting, since normal Valhallans don't have any ork trophies...

You don't need to convert Valhallans to get Ork Hunters; they always get it.

no, it clearly says on the doctrines that you ahve to represent it on the model. it doesn't say anything about valhallans being exceptions. steel legion also always have ork fighters and they come with ready made trophies. not to mention valhallan models aren't 'just' valhallans they can be used as any regiment. If not it seems 93% of IG players are using a cadian regiment.(well actually i think about 80 percent ARE actually using some cadian regiment. its like the ultramarines of the IG) Personaly im not bothered if you dont have an actually trophy, allthough i would prefer it, aslong as you tell me. most players wont mind im guessing unless they're hard core, all hail to the rules, players.
