They're desert raiders, and tank nuts. Tallarn was home to the biggest tank battle in the history of the universe.

It makes me a little nervous that Forge World is doing Tallarn models, since I was hoping that GW proper would get around to doing a boxed set for them. Better than nothing, I suppose. They were always my favorites after the Praetorians.

Tallarans are good shots (sharpshooters)

No, they are a pretty old one. In fact, GW got rid of almost all of the various IG armies, including valhallans, tallarn, mordians, and praetorians, when the updated IG codex came out. And, god the newer cadian models look so stupid. The older models looked so much better.

As WG said, tank nuts and desert raiders. Guerilla warfare and ambush experts.

Real men fight in tanks!

Tallarn desert raiders rule my fav IG regiment after the tanith 1st and only, they are known for thier rough riders, snipers/sharpshooters and for playing host to a continent spanning tank battle against the chaos legions. They have an nearly unsurpassed talent for suprise lightning raids. And yes although the new FW models are damned fine it will unfortunately mean that they are ulikely to be released in stores, but saying that it was unlikely they would have been, Taros campaign or not if it wasn't through FW.
