    Did anybody notice that the mounts of the special characters of Lizardmen have altered Dinobot names?:p

    I noticed Grymloq, but not the others.

    Zlaag and Zwup are the other two, also notice that the mounts "match" the dinobots' alternate mode.
    Zlaag for the Stegadon, Zwup for the Terradon and Grymloq for the Carnosaur.

    Yeah, caused quite a stir, what 6 years ago? Well, that's when the Carnasaur was first released (makes an excellent dragon).

    A cool wee nod nonetheless.

    Its a cool nod, and given how many references to other stuff there are in the Warhammer universe, it wouldn't surprise me at all if there were other TF references somewhere.

    Wow I actually never put those other two together. I always new about the grymloq but not the others. GW has a history of pulling great ideas/names out of great lore and spicing it up to match their game.

    I have been waiting for them to give the tau something TF related. Been thinking of making a tau army with repro label TF symbols as their Sect markings.
