Default What are all the doctrines?

Alright i know the doctrines in the codex, but i don't really keep up with chapter approved and I've been hearing people talk about doctrines that I've never heard of. Does any body know what they are and can tell me what they do.

I'm organizing a Death Korps of Krieg army. ;D

I seem to remember that GW published some in a white dwarf a while back.

But i didn't pay attention to them as i was more than happy with the ones in the 'dex

I have the ones in the codex as i said before, but i keep hearing people talk about doctrines that I've never heard of. I have looked on the GW sites and they don't have anything. I could scrounge up some old White Dwarfs. I just wanted to see if anyone new what they were. Or maybe their just making some up.

Well, the Armoured Company has its own set of doctrines, maybe they were talking about that? ???

he might be talking about the abhuman doctrines that were published in WD 302 (usa). some good things in there.... like guard with slow and purpuseful + feel no pain and conscripts with ws 3 and furious charge. there were also some cool ones in chapter approved 2003, like guard with power of the waggh, shootas and choppas...

maybe you can't get to a GW store easily so i'll toss this in the thread

we cant quote the points cost on here, but if it helps, the standard doctrines i can recall are

(the useful ones)
sharpshooters (good on heavy bolter fire support squads)
drop troops (often considered unsportsmanlike where i'm from but in my opinion, so are marines in general)
light infantry (because infiltrating rocks, but its a big points sink if you roll a scenario that doesnt allow it)
iron discipline (cheap and really handy)
chem inhalers (i'm not such a big fan, but some people swear by them)
cameleoline (goes well with light infantry if you infiltrate into cover)
close order drill (it's free and occasionally gets used)
hardened fighters (nice on a large veterans squad)
grenadiers (for people who love their stormies)
veterans (because they are awesome and more squads of these guys is really effective)

(and... the not-so-useful but nicely fluffy ones)
jungle fighters
xenos fighters
carapace armor (WAY too expensive)
warrior weapons
independant commissars (can often be a drawback since you cant 'hide' them)
mechanized (you can never have too many Chimerae IMO, but its hard to get that many models of them)

keep in mind that if you use doctrines, you are only allowed to choose 5, and your troop types will be severely restricted unless you use a doctrine slot for the more rare troops. your army will be limited to only infantry platoons, HQ command squads and support heavy weapons aloted to HQ (NOT separate heavy weapons squads in your support section), veterans, commissars. If you want to use a lot of the wierder troops like abhumans, advisers, techpriests, or the more unique squads like storm troopers, special weapons, and roughriders, then you might be better off going without doctrines.
