I used to play catachans. Mainly against nids on a table with a little bit of jungle terrain(small battles 1000 or under).

The pure catachan list really does come apart in straight up battles and really isn't worth taking but in a table with a fair bit of terrain or a jungle fight they really come into their own.

the thing with catachan is that they are one of those little treasures with there own FOC and army list (also if you, got deathworld dex then you dont have to pay for jungle fighters and the like)

i find that even i peice terrain with just that little bit of foliage on it can make all the difference in a gaem (especially if you using a demo charge or Marbo). and the new catachan rules and patrol rules are boostin catachan just that bit further (unit coohrenence 6", ordinance blast takes out 1 man not 8 lol).

the one thing that put catachan down was the Kroot merc forces and they for a short time had the exact same rules as catachan just without the traps (thankgod)

I like them but i just find the models tacky. If they came out with new models then i would probably get them.

Not a Catachan fan myself. Love the Deathworld list, love the fluff, want to crucify the guy who made the models.

The catachan ...well...look like they're made for the US market by looking like a US force in nam, but with lasguns.

They never stood out to me, but I would rather figh catachan troops then the endless flow of Cadian.
