Default Cadians, Are they good???

Hi! I am thinking about getting Cadians from a hive world. There Legion is the 768th and they are Urban warriors.

What should I get??

I was thinking of:

Codex

Battleforce (20 men, 3 heavy weapon teams, leman russ)

Cadian command squad.

Is this good

While the Cadian models are okay, the regiment itself is piss-poor. Use the models, but not the Cadian Doctrines.

Oh, and a Legion is only usable in Epic, considering you'd need about 30,000 Guardsmen... I think you mean a Regiment.

NO!!!!


You CANNOT use Cadian models as Elysians, Warhawks or Tanith! ESPECIALLY not Tanith!

Cadian models are best used to represent normal, undoctrinated Guard. If you want Elysians, convert Marine Scouts. If you want Tanith, buy Tanith models. If you want Warhawks, you're collecting a s*** army, and should choose Elysians instead.

Edit: If we weren't a GMod, you'd have a warning now Wargamer...

Well my regiment isn't cadian and I will get a junior officers blister to command 2 platoons of 20 men each (2 squads) then expand them. I will get the FW conversion kit for the leman russ to become a conquerer. Is it worth 10 to do this (rules wise)

Thanks

The Conqueror is an excellent tank, but it's weaker in 4th Edition than 3rd (so play 3rd!). Also, there are most cost-effective tanks, such as the Exterminator.

However, you really shouldn't be picking Forgeworld tanks on cost-effectiveness. It looks cool, that's all that matters.

Oh, and you'll need that big 40 book called Imperial Armour Volume 1 to use it.

+++Well you could use them for Warhawks (which aren't really that dreadfull, just not as good as Elysians). As for whether you should get the conquerer, go for it if you like the model that much as WG said. Personally I'd just get the standard LR to start with, then think about getting other variants. I believe the rules are in a fairly recent UKWD with the armoured company rules, although I can't remember which one exactly! Actually I'm not sure if it was the conquerer or just some other FW tanks, although I think the conquerer was amongst them+++

+++If you really like the model, go for it. If you like the standard LR more, buy that. If you like both models the same, buy the standard LR 'cos it's cheaper. If you like one more but have significant doubts about its rules... I'll get back to you on thet one :P+++
