Default Karskin

While reading through the codex i didn't see any Karskin mentioned. Do they count as Storm troopers, hardened veterans or something not in the codex.

The Kasrkin can be used as Storm Troopers or Grenadiers. Fluffwise, Kasrkin are Cadian grenadiers with training and experience equal to that of a Storm Trooper.

oh great this'll start the whole "It's storm trooper not kasrkin" debate again.

anyway.

Kasrkin are storm troopers.

As LM said fluffwise Kasrkins are Cadian only (either storm troopers or grenadiers)

but Storm Troopers use the Kasrkin models.

Kasrkin are a Cadian variant of Storm Trooper. Since Cadians are the current favored son of GW, the storm trooper models are called Kasrkin.

Here we go again.. Storm Troopers use the older Storm Trooper models. Cadian versions use the Kasrkin models.

Ok, lets put it this way- if you want to buy some stormtroopers, do not want to convert, and do not have access to old models, you will use the Kasrkin models.

Storm troopers pwnz0rs. :P

Kasrkin = Cadian = Most common because GW love them
Storm Troopers = Everyone else = Older models (but you can still buy them on the website)
