Question for @Aulenback , what's the physical difference between a male and female kroot? Or is that part of the fluff?

According to the fluff they have written for the Kroot thus far, there is no visible difference between the two sexes that non-Kroot can detect. Only Kroot can tell the difference.

“While the Kroot do possess two genders, there are no real cultural differences between a male and a female Kroot.

"Physically, female Kroot are very difficult to distinguish from the males, and most observers find it nearly impossible to tell which is which. The Kroot’s unusual senses mean that the sexes are mostly distinct in ways unnoticeable to a human, and by the same token, most humans appear just as sexless to the Kroot.”
- WH40K RPG.

Additionally, male and female reproduce by mixing oily secretions - usually by the male placing hands on the back or shoulders of the female; the female then vomits up the young when they are developed, the same way they vomit up indigestible waste; and young are physically mature in ten years, and live for up to around one hundred. And they are phenomenal at learning languages.

Cannibal space dinosaurs for the win.

It looks to me like whoever wrote that doesn't know the difference between sex and gender. From the sound of it, they have two sexes but no gender differences.
I may have a problem.. I went looking for the heads for the parts I picked up, and I found them. sounds good, right? but the thing is, I don't remember them being so small. all the heads are so tiny! they look so much bigger in Yaktribe pics. did I really play with these all the time back in the day?

sucks to get older
I thought Zoats were part of the Slann fluff? Do the Slann have some sort of relationship with the Tyranids now? (I thought zoats and Slann were now deep fluff they didn't talk about anymore?)

Zoats were pulled into tyranid fluff, at or after Advanced Space Crusade, and then abandoned entirely when the tyranids were reworked to not take slave species, rather than returned to independence.
Back in the original rogue trader book I remember that genestealers were random beasties that were taken from their homeworld. Go get a pure genestealer they had to infect a certain prey from their homeworld, but without access to them they infected other species.

The Slann has his basic conversion work done now. He's been to systems and planets all over the galaxy in his audit...


And picked up a couple of slaves on the way

I've started painting the Slann himself after this pic was taken, the pack slave was converted last night.
Loving the pack slave.

Edit: Work on Legbreaker has slowed down now, since I have time, and I have temporarily focused again on the "Finish Yer Stuff" challenge. But there will be more. Found bits for one more trap [a chaos spike full of marine helmets plus an ork stikkbomb], still unsure of whether and how to include the auspex [but painted up the auspex despite, so it is ready], feel that she has less "trophy" gear than this competition calls for on the principal model, but not sure what more or how to mend.

Finally finished (!) the model for Legbreaker. Will get good enough pictures soon, and write up her story. Then can get to work finishing the scenario for the Mordheim Facebook group’s “write a scenario to impress Tuomas” contest. Then get down to painting those last four figures in Mice & Mystics before next month!

Then in March, Blackstone Fortress, plus almost certainly an inability to resist painting up some of the Monster Slaughter figures. Man! Never rains but it pours!
