Default Cadian Kasrkins in a Vostroyan army?

Can there be Cadians in a Vostroyan army? Or is there a equivilent of them? Cause right now, all Vostroyans have are HQ, troops, and some heavy support...

Yes you can.

Theres nothing in the codex, or in that dwarf article that slaps you over the head for using different models in an army!!

It may look a bit odd (hi-tech grunts, with sci-fi russians) but theres nothing stopping you!

This is evidence of GW stuffing out by (a couple of years back) trying to phase out all the Cadians, so that now catachan, vostroyan, steel legion and tallaran have to have Cadian stormies

I'd never do it personally; if you want Stormtroopers, then use Stormtroopers, not Kasrkin.

[[[ From the look of things, GW is making it so that thy may wind up renaming Kasrkin as Stormies, they fit the whole bill, and the models do have all the hallmarks of the Storm-troopers, Hellguns/targetters, carapace armor, all are LD 8, and have great BS score. come with Krak+Frag included as well in the price.

I don't like the Storm Trooper models, it's those Hellguns and respirators that spoil the models for me. I like the helmets and body armour though.

Personally, I see no harm in fielding Kasrkin models with a Vostroyan army because Storm Troopers are supposed to be elite detachments assigned to an army in the field. Grenadiers, however, should look like Vostroyans because they're supposed to be elite versions of regular troops (issued with superior equipment). Storm Trooper squads that just don't quite look like they belong would represent an 'attached' unit excellently. It'd also play on the whole 'Glory boy'/outsider thing if they didn't quite mesh with the rest of the army. I imagine Storm Troopers would keep to themselves rather than mingle with the common soldiers, perhaps regarding 'lesser' men as unworthy. You know...a bit of an SAS 'cr*p hats' mentality.

I have never seen what a non-kasrkin stormtrooper looks like unless you are refering to the ones that look like steel legion.

Those are the ones - That&#39;s the original Storm Trooper model...they&#39;ve just been overshadowed by Kasrkin because their Cadian cousins look better.

I have a squad of old stormies, and a squad of Kasrkins.

Personally, I like the old strormtroopers, and if I may say so, the real stormtroopers, better for the role of deep striking, infiltrating, special forces type.

On the other hand, I think I like Kasrkins better for the role of grenadier. They just kind of scream the words "heavy infantry" to me, with their bulky, kick arse armour and big guns. They don&#39;t look streamlined enough to me so I could honestly say "yes, these guys jump out of valkyries with a grav chute."
