Default Jungle Regiment

Is it possible to mix a Cadian and Catachan units and count it as a combined regiment?

Sure. Why not? If the fluff fits then it's okay. So what's the fluff?

If they're both operating under Doctrines, then yes. You'd have 5 Doctrine points to split among them, so you could assign Jungle Fighters to some but not all of them.

However, playing Codex Catachans alongside your Codex Imperial Guard is a nono...

Not in apocalypse, which is the only way to use the Deathworld Codex and normal codex together.

Incorrect.

Deathwolrd Codex is playable alongside the IG codex. However the IG codex acts as the parent army thus you need a ratio of at least 51% IG to 49% Deathworld to do it.

Really now...of course I always thought that doctrine rules were meant to nullify this option and that the PDF edition of Catachans overwrote the Codex paperback.

Some Units like the Ogryn takes the points from the Imperial codex. Im going to use the Jungle fighters and Ratlings Snipers (Count them as Catachan Snipers). The Cadian will have Carapace Armor, Cameoline, and Heavy Weapon platoons.

Units:Catachan is Infantry,Catachan Sniper, Sentinel, Booby Traps, and Ambushes. Cadian will have Infantry Squads, Command Squad, Hellhound, Heavy Weapon platoons, Leman Russ, and for Apocalypse the Baneblade.

The Cadian recieve a signal from the Catachan for reinforcements on Cobra VII. The Cadian went down to the planet and discovered that the Catachans were under attack by the Tyranids. Both Cadian and Catachan fought side by side and defeated them. The after math of the battle left both Cadian and Catachans with heavy casulties. Both agree to combine forces and call themselves the 707th Hayato Regiment.

Why Hayato? Wouldn't it make more sense to call themselves the 707th Cobra Regiment?

Cobra regiment would give you an excuse to call your commander Cobra Commander. ;D

CRUSH THE GI JOES.
