Default Startin' Catachans...

Me and my friend made a deal...

He's give me Sly Marbo plus Five Catachan models (kill-team sized) if I gave him my Samus conversion and a dollar :P

Any speculation on what I should be getting next?? Oh, and I think I may convert the Sly model and make it my general...

Catachan forces are not hard to start up at all, here is why, every single models is either a sentinel, a heavy weapon, or a foot slogger that can be converted from the catachan box not just to represent the infantry but patrol men, assualt teams, command hq squads, and even the all deadly devils, the only blister you might need are snipers, special weapons, and the occasional officer.

So here is what you should get......

1. The book online
2. Two heavy weapon squad boxes
3. 3 infantry boxes
4. Various blisters to suit your player preference

That should be vanilla enough for any catachan army, once you have your list in mind build up from this, thats atleat what I did and my army is very succesful and was easy to start and build.
