Hey people, just wondered if you could help with some questions.

1. I was reading the Titan thread there nd noticed that the Skitarii fight alongside the IG. Who ar the Skitarii?

2. Does anyone have background info on the Vespid?


Thanks

Well, the Skitarii are humans with bionic enhancements. They defend the Adeptus Mechanicus Forge Worlds alongside Titans, and also go on crusades with them. They are organised into Regiments, and have several ranks:

Hypaspists: Basic trooper w/ Lasgun
Sagitarii: Heavy weapons specialists
Cataphracts: Vehicle crews
Ballisterai: Experimental weapons specialists.
Praetorians: Biologically and bionically altered troops, act as terror troops

Vespids, well the only thing I'm sure of is that they are another race of the Tau Empire, along with the Kroot and Nicassar.

Hope I helped!

There isn't very much on the Vespids but there is some stuff we know - they aren't low tech as they worked on the creation of the Stingwing's weapon alongside the Tau. Probably not space faring yet though but that is really a guess based off them coming from 'Planet Vespid' rather than the 'Vespid Dominion' or suchlike
