Default Looking for some Tau Auxiliary Help....

So, im working on a huge Apocalypse army and trying to get some real theme into it. My goal, it to make a fairly large Cadre. In doing so, I'm using the cart on page 157. In the Auxiliary Reserve Dispatch Section, there are two type of units that I am unfamiliar with and was hoping for some help. The two are the Hrenian Light Infantry and the Morralian Deathsworn. Does anyone know where there is some fluff/lore written about them so i could find something to use for them. That means, if the Deathsworn are tough and nasty fighters, i would or would use the Ork boy rules and convert something cool for em. Can anyone help a fell Caste member out?

Yeah, nobody really knows what those two are.

Some believe it to be a completely new/different xenos auxiliary unit and others believe it may just be two units of converted Imperial Guard/PDF forces.

The Apocalypse Rulebook mentions an Cadre in the Contingent T&O Chart that is composed entirely of Auxiliaries called the 'Auxiliary Reserve Cadre/Unit' or something.

It mentions the Cadre contains the two species/regiments in question.

oh. I don't have the Apoc rule book so I didn't know. Don't really want to shell out $50 bucks when there's supposedly 5th edition rules on the way. > Quite frustrating actually.

But since I can't really contribute to this topic, I'll just have to say that the Deathsworn sound like some kind of kroot/ork/thing. Not very helpful I know. Sorry.

After some long talking with the Boyz at the local shop... I have come to a conclusion. With the listing in the book; Hrenian Light Infantry and the Morralian Deathsworn we have Decided the following:

We are using the following rules as "Count As"
Hrenian Light Infantry -> using the Eldar Pathfinders
Morralian Deathsworn -> Witch Hunters: Sister Repentias.

We are working on a way to convert the models up. The idea of a Dwarf-ish sized sniper in heavy cloaks. And BAM! light Infantry. Then, for the Deathsworn, still trying to figure of how to convert them up. So, minimal body armour with huge 2 handed-ish weapons. Any ideas???

Thanks,
