    Do anyone have an ideal of the silhouette size of the Helot?

    S2 ? Doesn't look like S3, and almost sure is not S1.

    I hope we're all blown away and they're S5 monsters

    Fish Hulk-Men Smash?! Interesting idea but I don't think that will happen. They look to be human sized (S2) or slightly smaller (S1).

    I know :(
    I'd be surprised if they were S1, as their rage is cited as something to be afraid of

    That could translate into the berserk or a similar battle crazy rule for the unit. Still I hope to be surprised when the profiles are revealed.

    Or more frenzy that gets cancelled by linked teams :/

    I really Llike the idea of them being very big but maybe somewhat ordinary trooper stats

    Well, there are already several rules which allow for a unit to have two different profiles.

    There's nothing at all stopping one of those profiles being Irregular and/or Impetuous while the other is not.

    But I hope they don't add yet another pointless unique rule to do the exact same thing.

    They're supposed to have camo, so I wouldn't count on any kind of linkability if they do indeed get Frenzy.

    Really? I didn't hear about that. Has a CB staff member said something about Helots having camo?

    I believe Bostria said so during the Gencon announcement

    You bet. Bostria mentioned it in the warcor meet-and-greet, and again during the Saturday seminar. Mentioning it twice makes me think it's more than a misspeak or a mistake.

    True. Saying it more than once gives the idea more credence. Does this mean that Helots won't be a linked troop? Or perhaps becoming the first linked camo troop in Infinity history?

    It would be just Bostria's style to say "camo", knowing that to players "camo" means marker status--but remember that "Mimetism" is skilled as CH: Mimetism.

    We've got Mimetism link teams right now.
