Welcome to Librarium Online!
EDIT!!! LOTR Camel Cavalry
Orignal post is here
Found this picture on Bell of lost souls so thought id post it hereThats comment from them thereFirst up is the new Tau Camel Cavalry Auxilery. I couldn't get any special rules for it, but I believe it fills the assault role in the Tau list.
But as Triumph pointed out thats not Tau but LOTR (i wasnt paying much attention eg didnt click full picture up)
So no rules yet maybe just a concept or for a future release??
May be useful for some IG Rough Riders or something
Could a mod change topic name to LOTR Camel Cavalry
That's a LotR mini, I'll stake my monkey on it.
For starters, the scale looks like LotR (it's better proportioned), next is the fact the rider is wielding a blow pipe (how many blowpipes do we see in 40k?), thirdly is the fact that the models in the background it's shown interacting with have bows (again, does not fit 40k, as if the Tau would let idiots armed with bows go to war), and lastly is the fact that on the rear leg of the camel in black on red paint is what appears to be a symbol of the eye of Sauron.
I don't know how someone could stuff that up, honestly...
... only triumph could turn pooing his pants into a good thing..
Yeah, thats what got me too Triumph. Especially the lack of Tau models around and the excess of bow wielding models...
But I call to God, and the LORD saves me.
These guys should be coming out in Feb I believe, as some more 'fluff' is filled out for the Easterlings etc and alongside the Corsairs of Umbar etc.

What I want to know is why do the camels have, what appear to be, hooves?

Ahh Flames I love you man lmao. That made me second guess myself, and gave me a great idea to use Tau Camel forces from now on. I could imagine adding jet boosters and stuff on it, making them fleet of foot. Maybe add a guy on back with a Rail Gun, the world of 40k is my oyster, one the Camel spat in.
When i saw this thread i was ready to B*** slap the game designers of 40k for coming up with something so stupid. good thing its for LotRs.
just saw the table of context thing for the apocalypse book(it was part of the link you put up) I can use my spined chaos beast again!!!8X
That is not dead which may eternal lie,
for in strange aeons even death may die.
Jon is right. Why the heck do they have hooves?
If you think Mathammer doesn't work and dice cannot be predicted, there's a whole field of mathematics called probability that would like to disagree.
