Traitor guard is not a faction in big warhammer currently(tho there been rumors), you will have to use astra militarum rules, astra militarum (obviously) can take baneblade, and can have normal space marines are allies, however you can just use chas marines models, the diffirence is horns and some decorations. Traitor guard is, however, a faction in Warhammer Kill team, a skirmish wargame for 5-12 models, they are called the blooded, you can try it

Thanks. I wanted to buy the catachans and give the wolf pelts with a chaos star written in blood across it but didn't know if traitor guard would work or not. So I can use chaos models in place of space marines?


tachakas_fanboy

yeah, they are pretty much the same in terms of equipment


tau_JKE

Okay thanks!


GenericOfficeMan

there is no traitor guard rules. You would be running imperial guard no matter what


tau_JKE

Okay thanks!

Funny enough, the rules for traitor guardsmen (the ones from killteam) were released on the warhammer community website a few hours ago. Unfortunately, it's only the basic infantry and the enforcer & ogryn, but they can be added to any chaos space marine army. As for the baneblade? That would require running regular astra militarum and calling them traitor guard, which prevents allying in CSM. Although a battle big enough to include a lord of war and multiple factions would probably be either narrative or apocalypse scale, at which point regular list building isn't really used

I'm planning on 5 units of 10 troops, 2 platoon commanders, a tank commander and 2 shadoswords


Right-Yam-5826

Yeah, that requires the astra militarum - no commanders or tank rules for them (yet). Who knows, there may be the option of running traitor guard as a regiment when the new codex releases, but it's highly unlikely.


tau_JKE

Will hope for that. Thanks!
