Default Right Models?

Hey well i've been thinking about starting another guard army for cityfight but i'm wanting to use catachan models but they dont have flak armour they only have a flak vest, any problems with WYSIWYG? and i'm not really wanting to use cadian models.

Whether or not WYSIWYG matters is dependent on who you play against. We've all played against people who proxy Carnifexes with upside down cups, or claim their cluster of broken and unpainted Guardsmen are actually Grey Knight Terminators. But for something such as this, I think you only need really worry about strict tournament rules.

Well you can always use "count-as" if its a bit odd, but the only thing I could see you having trouble with is the die-hard trounie rule freaks.

If you wouldn't mind the extra effort, you could scatter extra Cadian helmets about your models bases. To give the image of extra armour being tossed off.

We don't need no stinkin' body armour!

I don't see why you would have much of a problem except, perhaps, as stated before, your opponent is a majorly annoying rules lawyer.

Or you you can say that it was implied (not mentioned in the rule) but thats pretty much what they said.

well, the catachan rulebook states that they have a 5+ armor save anyway. they are guardsmen afterall.

cerapace however would be harder to pull off

Well, Catachans are notoriously hard bastards. Since they don't get a Strength/Toughness bonus for all that muscle, simply say that it gives them a 5+ save instead.

I think the problem has been answered, the Catachan codex gives them a 5+ save, and you could always add extra armour if you play with some rule lawyers.
Good question though.
Locked.
