Default Do Kasrkin models complement either SL or Tanith?(modelling query)

Im still in the thinking stage of starting a new army. I am loving the Kasrkin models but im unsure about the cadian ones for some reason (I think its the heads) Im also still debating about a theme (The old ploy of going elite with lots of storm troopers or light speedy troops. The guants Ghosts models look stunning (Nice models and not as bulky as catachans) however their model range is extrememly limited and making addition guard would be pretty hard without reproducing clones)

So im in a bit of two minds but eitherway I have some Steel legion models sitting in the corner and am going to paint them up tomorrow for a test run.

Enough rambling. what im wondering is do the Kasrkin models look

Nice along side a guants ghost army?

or

Look good along side some Steel legion?

I want them to fit nicely and not look like the odd couple. So does anyone know if Kasrkin models go nice with either of theses forces or not?

Thanks for any advice, comments etc ad excuse the rant (Just trying to get the influx of ideas out

Steel legion go well with Kasrkin... Tanith are light infantry (think Catachan models) so don't fit in at all....

yeah, Steel legion do look quite good along side Kasrkin, yet i think they could look rather cool alongside the gaunts ghosts. Its a nice contrast to me, although others will probably disagree.
If it went well with your fluff (if you have any), then that would be even better.
but yeh, i agree with fallen angel here, steel legion are amazing models.

also, totally unrelated, but does anyone know where i could get boxed sets of the old cadian models?

You will have to special order them from GW i beleive they have been archived.

But ST with Tanith won't go well together. Light infantry with ST dosn't, let alone with an army that IS Light infantry....

Kasrkin look appauling with anyone except Plastic Cadians. Stormtroopers suit everyone, so stick with them.

Thanks guys. I don't really like the old storm troopers so I think i'll keep will kasrkin.

I think I will just get some Cadian models and see how they go - seeing as they are the only plastics and anything else would require a lot more work and skill

Shame about guants ghosts as the models did look rather nice - although a bit limited in poses etc

I think the Kasrkin are brilliant models, far better than the old Stormtroopers. They go with anything that looks quite heavily armoured, so:

Cadians,
Steel Legion,
Elysians,
etc

I agree with Arguleon-veq, as long as the standard troops look heavily armored the will look fine. The Tanith, Catachans, Tallarn, ect. are all light infantry that prefer to move quickly and lightly through terrain. Something the hulking Kasrkin models just don't do.
