There are some images out now pages from Codex: Skitarii- the Onager Dunecrawler and the Skitarii Maniple (foc). These are significant, as it the "Skitarii Maniple Detachment has no HQ to show for. Lets take a look at what this is and what it could mean.

Here is a link to the leaked images...they originate from 40k kings

The Skitarii Maniple  
2 Troops

6 Troops
4 Elites
2 Fast Attack
4 Heavy Support
1 Fortification

This makes the Skitarii an optimal allied force, simply because of the minimal unit requirements to jump in with them. No HQ makes it quite easy to get what you want out of a Skitarii force.

Command Benefits.
Crux Mechanicus- if this is your primary detachment, you can re-roll on the Skitarii Warlord Traits and your warlord gains preferred enemy.

Tireless Advance
All modles from this detachment have crusader and Scout, but cannot outflank (they can if they have infiltrate or a mission special rule)

For not having a dedicated transport (unless the onager has a dual unit purpose), scout + the extra movement of some units, can really get them into forward positions really fast.

In German: Can anyone Translate?
