Default Gaunt's ghosts of the Tanith first an only---i must know all

I just started to play IG and the Tanith Ghosts really caught my eye. They are not your typical tank stacking army most IG armies tend to be but are more mobile and infantry focused. I want to play the, but I am stack because i can't find anything usefull about them to make an army list anywhere. The only thing I have found is the Gaunt's Ghost heroes list of GW website. any information, links distant thoughts, ancient knowledge passe down from your grandfather, i would like to know (only if it proteans to the ghosts). keep in mind that i don't yet have the codex as I made the decision to play IG yesterday.

Ah, yes.

If your going to do the tanith army, i would simply use the doctrines from the back of the Imperial guard codex, along with those hero charachters on the GW page.

Theres also a list in the IG of the tanith doctrines tha they suggest:

Light infantry
Priests
Sharpshooters
Veterans
Hardened fighters
Ind. Commissars
Special equipment: cameleoline.

Don't worry, when you get your codex, it will make sense!

How would you go about getting some variety with less than five different infantry models

Honestly, worst set of Doctrines I've ever seen. Gaunt's Ghosts are pretty badarse, but when you're playing an infantry-based force with few vehicles, the last thing you want to do are shell out that many points for near-worthless Doctrines. Cameoline defines the Ghosts, Light Infantry isn't bad, keep Veterans... but Sharpshooters is a load of crap and Hardened Fighters will rarely help you much.

Despite what many will tell you Catachan make good ghosts you just need to do a few things.

File down the arms and greenstuff sleeves over them to get rid of the beefy look, then green stuff a cape. If you only use the actual models you have acess to only one special weapon and that comes with gaunts box set. So you will need to do conversions
