Logan wrote:The name Lamprey is by no means official. Its entirely possible that will not be its name. Also possible it wont be released till codex.
And yes I meant the harpy haha. I just couldnt remember its name.
Logan wrote:Its not an official name. But i hear things….
Logan wrote:Yea i have TONS of info on tau. From the new characters to the Assault Crisis Suits….and i have even heard the rumor NO MORE KROOT!
Logan wrote:I cant tell if the NO KROOT! rumor is true but it makes sense. I am lets say VERY invoved with the playtesting process of the codex and I have seen no kroot units. Shhhhhhhh dont panic.
Logan wrote:Talking to guy whonis higher up than me in an email here is what he said
” Now Logan, I have received your emails regarding your next project. You asked why there has been a lack of a certain unit(Kroot) all I can tell is that right now it is being heatedly discussed wether to keep them in our upcoming release. We want this book to refelct the primary army, not necessarily other “mercanary” forces. When we sort it out we promise to let you have a peak.
Thank you for your concerns and comments regarding this matter.”
Logan wrote:As for the “Lamprey” iam not sure yet. But the assault crisis suits have expirimental rules where once per game they gain BOTH benefits of moving with their jump things(unamed at the moment) which lets them move 12in. Then reroll assault distamce if desired. If the first attempted charge is successful you gain Furious Charge.
This is ALL expirimental though.

Guys dont make the mistake that no kroot is all bad. They are going to focus much more on the taus firepower which is ridiculous already! Think how necrons got some cool counter assault units evem though their primarily shooting. Same is being done for tau. Assault Crisis Suits, Drones that fly and decapitate people, new characters. And some awesome new vehicles. Oh and they have jetbikes which are famtastic! Assault 2 twinlinked melta. And they have Stealth! Gonna be great!
No Kroot, hmm? That would indicate to me that they may do the Kroot as one of the rumored “mini-codices” we’ve been hearing talk of.
