Default Grenadiers trait.

Hi folks, i haven't got the new dex atm (should be getting it soon ;D) and was wandering if the 'trait' grenadiers is still around basically you can take i think its 0-3 squads of stormtroopers as troops.

Grenadiers; Veteran Squads (thus BS4) with Lasguns/Shotguns can be equipped with Carapace Armor, Melta Bombs (+ 1 Demo-Pack for 1 guy) and/or Camo Cloaks and Defensive Grenades.

0-6

No;,

grenadiers is an upgrade that gives a 4+ save which is golden when most basic gins are AP5.

Stormtroopers are elite only nothing makes them troops.

You can take Veteran Squads (which are troops choices) and give them Carapace armor. Storm Troopers are a specific unit (they get Hellguns), and they are an Elite Choice.

So as long as you are happy with your "grenadiers" being veterans in carapace armor, you are good to go.
