I too will be nose deep in the new codex for many reasons: learning the changes, reading the new fluff, admiring the new artwork (if there is any). I'll be extremely happy to finally have a hardback book for my army.
And I too think that, even though our auxilliaries will still be in our codex, they may get their own codex too. Correct me if I'm wrong, but there've been a few new codex armies in this edition: Death Guard, Custards, Thousand Suns. I wouldn't be surprised if we get "T'au Auxilliaries" codex. I won't be upset if we don't, so I won't get my hopes up, but if we do, I'll be over the moon. Imagine that! Competitive Kroot!
My guess is simple: if the Kroot are in our new Codex, they will not get another Codex for themselves.
On the other hand, if they are not present we can start to speculate whether they are going to be discontinued (unlikely) or they are getting their own book.
I'd wager that we will have a T'au Auxiliaries Codex sometime soon (could very well be 2019 or beyond). For the meantime we will have to rely on Index profiles for the Kroots.
I just hope that we get some official info on upcoming releases very soon, I'm starting to be quite impatient about it
Even if they are getting their own codex, they still have to be in the tau one. Simply because people who own them would be pissed to have to wait even more time to be able to play them.
Like people have said before, even chaos space marine codex has some daemon units.
They will probably release new models before they release an actual codex for tau-aux
There's no chance that Kroot will be present in a Tau Codex AND shortly after in a Tau Auxiliaries Codex, IMHO.
If they are in the Codex, we can forget about a dedicated Kroot Codex for a couple of years. It all comes down to how much GW thinks the Kroot would sell and whether expanding their range is worth the investment.
As for now, the Index works as a stopgap: even if Kroot will not be present in our Codex we would still be able to use them, thanks to their Index profiles.
I'd prefer not seeing Kroot units in our Codex, since I absolutely love them. That would (likely) mean that a dedicated Auxiliary Codex is on the way.
