Default Abhuman Doctrines. Anyone ever use em?

Greetings imperial cannon fodder err... I mean valiant guardsmen

Anyway, all joking aside, I was just wondering if anyone here has ever used the Abhuman Doctrines from White Dwarf, or ever seen someone use them. I once played against a drop-troop guy using the Afriel doctrine, but that's all I've ever seen. I know some of them are pretty pricy and perhaps not very useul, but there has gotta be a few people out there with drooling hordes of Slave Levies (which IMO is viciously good) or a Ogyrn brigade. Usually most armies that use special rules from a WD at least have a small cadre of loyal maniacs that play it, but I NEVER hear anything about anyone using the Abhuman Doctrines

So I have come to the source of guardly stuff on this here forum to ask this question, now repeated. Has anyone here ever used abhuman doctines or seen someone use them at all?

I'd never heard of them until now, but I'm interested. Can you point me in the right direction? Where can I find these rules? Are they only in that single copy of White Dwarf?

I've used the Nightsiders Abhuman Doctrine. The Abhuman Doctrines aren't the most practical things out there, but when combined with other doctrines, they can form a very fluffy army.

Lemme see if I can remember them...

Nightsiders: Accute Senses USR.

Beasts: Something like boosed WS and a cover save for units behind them?

Feral Ogryns: Ogryns with two CCWs for Troops IIRC.

Afreal Strain: Guardsmen gain ATSKNF, all enemies gain Preffered Enemy against them (again, IIRC).

Actually "Subs" gave people a cover save. You also missed Slave Levies which have Feel no Pain and Slow an Purposeful
