Catachan Reinforcements

Catachan Reinforcements

Approximate Reading Time: 3 minutes

I have some Catachan reinforcements and these will be the last for a while.

These were from eBay and were a real mix of models. There were some weird configurations!

Never miss an article?

But were absolutely dirt cheap, and I couldn’t resist at the time.

Chris from the Unrelenting Brush painted them up for me.

I’m now up to 80~ Catachan Infantry which gives me a Brigade with ease. My Catachan Brigade comprises of a mix of the following…


  • Straken
  • Yarrick
  • Primaris Psyker
  • 3x Catachan Company Commanders

Again a decent selection. I can take Straken for orders and some melee goodness. Or take Company Commanders if I am tight on points.

  • 60x Infantry

By far the hardest to do. I’ve already bitten off too much with my Valhallans. Hence why Chris did these for me.

  • 2x Tech-Priests
  • Platoon Commanders
  • A Priest
  • Ratlings
  • Crusaders

This is the easiest to fill as there are so many none regimental choices. Which means I’ve gradually built up a decent selection of models here over the years.

I like to do models like these to break up the batch painting of Guardsmen.

I’ll be adding Harker to this list soon too. He gives re-roll of ones for Catachan to hit in the Shooting phase only. He’s a nice alternative to Yarrick for half the points. He’s not as good as Yarrick because Yarrick re-rolls all ones to hit (Shooting and Fight phase) for all Astra Militarum.



Fast Attack

  • 3x Hellhounds

These are the only painted Fast Attack choices in my whole collection. I really need to do my Cadian Sentinels.

Heavy Support

  • 3x Cyclops Demolition Vehicles

These are my only painted Catachan Heavy Support. I’d like to add some Forgeworld Artillery at some point in the future to this section.

  • 3x Vox-Casters
