Default Tanith 1st and Only

Some one at my club has a force of Blood Pact, and I would like to do a force of Tanith. My questions are:
I am taking a independant commissar to represent Hark, do I have to give him cameleoline and Lt Infantry doctrine as he is not classed as advisor? In the books he has camo cloak. Can he infiltrate if the squad he joins has lt infantry, but he doesn't?
How can I convert an army? I'm thinking catachan jungle fighters, with green stuff cloaks, but the arms are too bulky. Any ideas?

This is all I can think of at the mo, but will post more as and when.
Cheers.

Pretty much. The IC represents Hark, so not giving him LI or Cameleoline would be justifiable.

Please don't... I hate Catachan-Tanith conversions. Use the official models.

Yeah, he's right about this one.

He's got a point, these don't always work out too well, unless you're good at converting. I'd recommend getting the actual Tanith models, the only problem being thatit works out to be quite expensive and so it may take you quite a while to get the army.

Brilliant. Time is not a worry, money, well yeah but if I only get a few at a time sort of thing.
More questions then:
I agree about hark, but he does get camo cloak in books, and I don't want the squad he joins to not infiltrate.
Secondly, what about the characters in chapter approved and website? They should not always join Gaunts Squad, and I am quite happy to use the basic rules for officers etc, so what to do?
Thirdly, where is the website with all the names of the soldiers? I can't remember where.
Other than these, I have a pretty good idea how my list will be, I just have not written it yet.
Cheers.

OK, I recommend using Mkoll with a squad to infiltrate, possibly with a couple of special weapons, meltas are especially useful given the range they'll be at.

Put Rawne in Gaunt's squad, keep Bragg at the back with a heavy weapon, preferably a heavy bolter or an assault cannon.

The wesite for the chapter approved characters is: http://uk.games-workshop.com/chapter...unts%2Dghosts/.

There are other characters, Gaunt is in the Guard codex, and I should be able to get my hands on the rules for some other characters. I'll let you know if I can find any.

Try this link for easy to make cloaks.
Its a hell of a lot cheaper than using green stuff and gets good results.

to be honest i dont really liek the catchan-tanith convertions, the dont look much like Tanith in my opinion. if you can afford it- go for a REAL tanith army

Thanks for those pics, they helped. What I may do is use fully converted cadians to stand in til I can afford to replace them all with Tanith models, the main thing now is:
1. Should I use the rules for the characters thay have made? Or, as they are not meant to all be with Gaunt, should I just name regulars? As I'm pretty sure I can't replace a normal guardsmen in a platoon with larkin and pay the points for him, can I?

2. Hark. Mostly sorted, but a, he has a camo cloak in the books, and b, If I don't pay the +x pts to give him the correct doctrines, can he still join a squad and infiltrate? I don't want one squad left behind because of him.
Virtually sorted now, thanks to you all. I'll start thrashing out the list soon.

I would guess you could take all of the tanith special chars and attach the to squads. You'd probs have to ask your opponant, but It sounds acceptable
