Now the topic was the enclaves; I know that they are now able to use Kroot and vespid, and they have a human world, but I can find nothing on their stance on integration of humans. I have hope of good lore on this somewhere because Farsight is merit-based and as a result non-fire caste can use battle suits. So if some human showed the discipline and skill could they be integrated into the fire caste or would the humans forever be forced to use the human auxiliary rules found in IA:3? I.e. Lasguns instead of pulse rifles?
The second edition certainly has gue'vesa, but technically limits their availability to use within the Taros Campaign. The First edition had that as well as a human mining gang that could also be used as Tau troops. The stat blocks for both aren't all that out of sorts with the current system, so I don't see why they couldn't be used, other than the campaign-only caveat.Kakapo42 wrote:Process wrote:I don't know if this is specifically a fluff convo, but the idea of human aux units really interests me, (i have a squad of IG left over from when i collected over 10 years ago, unpainted), i know there are rules available for guvesa(?), i found some written by an andy hoare, but are they applicable for 7th edition? and if not does anybody run these units with different rules?
Also, have you encountered any opposition to using them?
Imperial Guard as an allied detachment would be the logical choice for 7th edition as I understand it. If there are still dedicated rules for Gue'vessa units, I imagine they'd most likely be found in Imperial Armour Volume 3 Second Edition, as the first edition of IA:3 was where a modified version of the original Chapter Approved rules for Gue'vessa ended up.
