Default Q regarding new deep strike with valkyrie.

Hi all,

Just wondering if the new IG codex will only allow stormtroopers to deep strike if you have a valkyrie model.

One of my mates seems to think that is the case.

Also, are stormtroopers and kasrkin the same thing?

I'd not be surprised. You can't Deep Strike marines without a Drop Pod model. However, that puts paid to the grav-chutes of the Elysians.

Yes, but also so very, very no. They are both elite units with BS4, T3 and a 4+ armour save and Hellguns, but they are not the same thing.

Kasrkin are Cadia's elite troops, equipped in the same manner as Stormtroopers. And only Cadia's.

Stormtroopers are trained at the same place that Commissars are trained at and I believe from the same source - both come from orphans of Imperial officers, and Stormtroopers are those who weren't good enough to be Commissars. Stormtroopers are then reassigned to a regiment, usually not one from their homeworld so their judgement isn't clouded, as an auxiliary unit.

On a brief tangent to Grenadiers, often seen as the same thing as Stormtroopers, Grenadiers are the individual elite troopers of a regiment.

While in rules terms they are all broadly the same (except Grenadiers can't Deep Strike), in fluff they are very different.

Crikey! This crazy clown causes commotion like the coming of Christ.

Certainly, still a curious and cordial cavalier in the countenance of crazed cads, curs and creeps who condemn courtesy as something corny. No cloud could collapse his crushing crescendo of comical crowing and crimson coiffure. This conjecture on culture comes circumlocutive, consequently...

Hey Turok,

No one knows for certain how deep striking will work out in the new codex, and speculation is useless at the moment. As a result, I'm going to lock this.

If anyone has any questions or concerns, feel free to send me a PM.
