These guys must be the coolest fucking fuckers in the whole universe of 40k. In case you're un-familiar with the Death Korps of Krieg, Imma tell ya a thing.

> Krieg used to be a nice place, with trees and greens and maybe even some animals, and regular people.
> Some idiots wanted some fun so they sparked a revolution
> The revolution went in to a civil war, between the evil Seperatists and the loyal Imperialists.
> The whole planet fell to the Seperatists with the Imperialists had to nuke the whole planet to win the war.
> To make up for their forefathers sins, the Kriegers have to be soldiers.

Well, if you haven't noticed, all the factions in the game use stupid tactics like that. Tau aren't much into camos either and they got shit like close combat donkey punches.

It's entirely up to the regiment what sort of tactics they use. Elysians are very much a paratrooper army riding in on valkyries, dropping down, using air superiority and drops, etc. Catachans are into ambushes and guerrilla warfare. Krieg use more static siege warfare, Steel Legion are into motorized warfare.

Problem is that you're not just fighting other other people with similar guns and tanks. You got factions that can swamp you with bodies that take several shots to kill, or big monsters that need anti-tank weapons to handle. You got whole host of creatures that can affect your mind or spray you with acids and swarms of little shits. Stuff like that.

Yeah and their culture is purely Hienlenistics nonstop Military gung ho the whole time. Before they teach a child to walk they teach them to dissemble and resemble a lasrifle.

This immediately conjures in my min; you know those fisher-price baby puzzle toys, where you have to put round peg round hole and put things together? Now imagine a brightly colored miss proportioned lasrifle with obnoxiously large parts for a baby to reassemble and disassemble. Thats Cadian baby toys.

Then when they hit 12 its not off to middle school or whathave you, Nope its Go inna woods time. If they make it to 14 they go to Basic training where they stay till they are a fucking adult and tossed off into a Regiment. If they are lucky enough to survive, they have a 1:10 chance to get put in a Anterior Guard regiment.

You can't tell if a Cadian is in Civilian attire because it doesn't exist. Its only a different kind of uniform with maybe a different cut or Material. Infact a Cadian Civillian does not exist. The closet you have is a person on reserve status working axillary jobs to fuel the war effort. And they are damn good at it. They EXPORT more weapons than anyone else, and there is no shortage of weapons or ammo. Cadian's only means to exist is to fight Chaos.

Shit an average Cadian has probably seen more daemons than a Veteran Space Marine. Probably has a good score of kills on them too. They aren't bad at their job either, some of the best shots in the Imperium. You know who the inquisition preferes to send against chaos? Grey Knights? Fuck that, send in the Cadians, they WILL get the job done and quickly.

No, GW have dialled back the PURGE EVERYTHING aspect of Chaos over the last decade or so. Time was, even Space Marines had to be lobotomised after so much as seeing a daemon in their peripheral vision. The population was supposed to hate and fear.. something, but you couldn't tell them what the bad stuff was. Eventually, GW began to realise that this absurdly overblown slaughter was really stupid and unworkable, and nowadays is a lot more sensible in that you don't reward your heroic veterans and grizzled loyal Chaos-killers by shooting them.

Vraks would have been over in a week had they sent Cadians. Cadians would have stormed the city and taken it house by house. Its like playing baseball to them.

Cadians actually have a better battle record than Ward Ultrasmurfs, not only that Managed to fight GREAT CRUSADE levels of traitors on their homeplanet while Abby cleverly tied everyone else up elsewhere. And STILL held their planet.
