I'm hoping that Kroot Mercenaries becomes an officially published list. The Kroot have already made it to chapter approved... and IMO it would be a much better choice for a Tau-alternative than a Farsight Enclaves list.

Humans have catachans and EVERY FRIGGING CHAPTER of space marines as their variants. Eldar have the Dark Eldar. Tyranid already have so many options that just updating the codex would allow for them to diversify. Orcs...orcs just need some love, period :'(. The Kroot could fulfill multiple roles if officially released, enabling numerous armies (Eldar, Guard, Orcs, and other variant forces) access to new troops and weapons via the Mercinaries rule, as well as serving as a stand-alone objective-strong task force.

I wouldn't really count them as a race, because they are already made, and they WILL get an update [size=2pt]but probably not till 2050[/size]. I don't believe that they will make squats or harlies, probably a brand new, radical, awesome-in-a-can race.
cheers

How about a real advanced race?

Invisible in all light spectrums, immeasurably strong, capable of using and resisting all known magic, it is a creature of pure energy. Uneffected by all light, energy or projectile weapons, is can none-the-less inflict instant death on any creature it touches.

Here is the complete army list:

God Being 0-1 1800pts

S T I W A Ld
10 10 10 10 100 10

special rule: spotting (2xd6 -12)


Minions 0-2 50pts each

No abilities.

I said Dark Eldar, simply as they desperately need an update (and what happened in the No'Akei/Vect storyline exactly? A civil war in Commorragh would be great, and would certainly stir up the slightly stagnant DE fluff somewhat). I also said Dwarf-ish race, because I love the Demiurg in BFG and would love to see more of them, even as a limited Kroot-type mercenary choice (which is fairly appropriate for them if you ask me).

WANAX,

I like it! But I think the spotting distance is a bit unfair.
3d6 - 18 seems a bit better.

Um, also because I'm really interested in playing the army, what FOC slot do minions take up?

glad someone got the humor

Minions take up troop choice of course, since a legal list requires a single HQ and 2 troops
