Default Would this be acceptable?

was wondering if you would consider it acceptable to mix varying troops when using doctrines:
e.g. I include bothe cadian and catachen models in my army, using custom doctrines (but not including jungle fighters/light infantry). I would paint them the same scheme, saying that the catachen models are just the older troops in the army - their armour covers less, but they are more skilled so to gameplay terms they are the same as normal troops.
What would you say if I included some catachen models in a custom doctrine army like that?

that could work. there are no rules against the mixing of models in an army. just have it make sense. the catachans could be hardened vets, or somthing to the like.

It would indeed be acceptable. The catachan models are used often in imperial guard armies as hardened veterans or special troops. There is a WD (not sure which one but its recent) that has a drop troop army in a battle report that used the cadian torso and catachan legs, heads, arms, weapons as hardened veterans squads. Although this would leave you with spare catachan torsos thus dont give them the cadian torso.

I cant see any problem with it.
