Default quick question about modelling

are the catachan sprues interchangeable with the cadian ones?

i know a box of cadians comes with a GL, a grenade throwin hand, a flamer, a vox, and a chainsword for each 5 man sprue... what does the catach sprue have for add-ons?

i want to combine a box of cads and a box of catach for a mercenary irregular looking army, do the parts interchange easily? ive only used cadians so i dont know these things

+++The Catachans have a vox caster, knives and swords and a flamer. aswel as some other stuff. Catachan torsos have no belt, they come on the legs. So Cad + Cat bodies are hard to mix without cutting a belt of(or in the worst case adding one)+++

Quite a lot of people like using the Catachan arms with normal Cadian torsos for that "sleeves up" look. And the equipment shouldn't be too hard to combine.

okay.. so cadian torsos go with cadian legs and ctach with ctach. no problem there. what is this 'other stuff' of which you speak? are the heads interchangable? how many flamers in a box of 20? does the catachan neck fit in the cadian neck socket and vice versa? etc etc. please try to be descriptive before i go dumping money into it i want to have it planned out in advance.

+++Heads are interchangable. Apart from the belt issue they are pretty much the same. I think there are 5 flamers in a box of 20 and if you didn`t know they`re not like the cad ones, more like space marines. By other stuff I mean grenades and extra las ammo. The Cat guns are separate to the arms unlike Cads. You have to cut the stock and handle off.
Hope this is helpful, +++
