They have Guardsmen stats... the Doctrines are up to you.

Um....actually you know that it is illegal in this forums to tell the stats right?

Well, the dioctrines are there for you, so basically what you need to do is to just add up the point cost for the doctrines with your average Guardsmen.

It is illeagal for us to give statistics on these forums and the site. Vostroyans follow all the rules layed out in Codex: Imperial Guard and you may select up to 5 doctrines to go with your army.

Geez guys, atleast tell him the doctrines. They've got:
Special Weapons Teams
Heavy Weapon Platoons
Carapace
Sharpshooters
Hardened Fighters

This gives them good armour, better shooting, better close combat, and more big guns. Basicly they're a sad atempt at mini marines, bugger-all to do with city fights.

Well, I am not sure about the other doctrines that they can take, for example am not sure if the Sharpshooters doctrine is part of them or another IG army.

So it is fair to say that I better not say anything that will make Dr.Evil put in the wrong doctrine for the Vostroyans.

Here's some "official" stuff about Vostroyans, including the doctrines that Elessar posted...

http://uk.games-workshop.com/imperia.../vostroyans/1/

It's not a mass army that I recommend for min/maxing... the individual troopers are not cheap & EXTREMELY detailed (read: complicated to paint well), so it's almost better to have Doctrines that limit you to a small/elite Imperial Guard force (read: less effective than a pile of warm bodies with flashlights of various sizes).

That being said, they are fun to do on the side... but as a main army, I'm not sure I'd recommend them unless you are very big on painting many little details & mostly want to look cool on the table.
