as the title suggests, if im running a dual batallion, and want to run different doctrines (taken from custom choices) for each.
how do i get away with this on the tabletop wihout painting them differently?

For a GW tourney, I think they need to be painted differently, or be different models, i.e cadian models for one and catachan for the other.
I think it would be fair, for a unified force that it is easy for the opponent to tell what's what, to use a vehicle detachment (only vehicle and regimental advisors) as one, and infantry as the other.
Not sure how I'd do two different infantry detachments painted the same, doesn't seem fair on the opponent to make them have to distinguish between them.

might be tricky for infantry or hordes split between two doctrine as mentioned
I've been working on a list where all my calvary are Krieg, all my Infantry are Catachan
pretty simple for both tournaments and friendlies
try splitting up the units as needed
would a coloured stripe on shoulder pad work you think?
Could do it old school white shield style. Put different colour stripes down the middle of the helmet. Detachment 1 has a single blue stripe, detachment 2 has a single red stripe.

Thank you, its really hard to find the line of acceptability in the grey here.
i dont want to paint my models differently as ive only got a limited amount, but want to be able to use the different rules (for advantage). i dont mind a small deviation, bu core colours i want to be the same, i guess worst case is i dont use different rules
I'm not sure a stripe on the model would be sufficient.
A different coloured base rings would be more obvious.
Also depends is this for casual or competitive. If it's the former check with your opponent if it's the latter it's gonna be a lot tougher. Especially if you're trying to distinguish infantry.
I don't know, I think you could get away with painting vibrant bright colours as stripes. White, Yellow, Red, just tell your opponent White is Detachment 1 and Red is Detachment 2, etc.
You could also paint the skull aquilas the same colour as the stripe as well.
