These are not in the Codex but tehy show up in Army Builder as a Troop Choice. What are those and can someone explain why they are not in the Codex?

they were a chapter approved unit in the day. At one time even the gamefaqs stated their legality. However, as time passes, rules fade. They were a streamline version of a human "firewarrior" so to speak. They were in the same 6-12 man squad, had options to grab a ui, and even had access to emp grenades, two pulse weapons, and a markerlight.

For an auxiliary unit, I didnt mind these guys, I really loved the challenge of playing with them in my army, under the tacticas youll notice that. They were in my opinion best suited for range, and made a decent reserve unit if you were strapped in a situation. If I had to compare them to something, it would be a peltast in rome total war.
