When I first saw screenshots of LotV with those new Tal' Darim skins, I fell in love. They represent a darker, for me much more interesting part of the protoss society and their race as a whole.
Despite the fact that most of them are blind fanatics/worshippers of Amon, they possess unique rules like the chain of Ascension, Rak' Shir duels or the execution of members who attack their superior out of the latter. Slightly comparable to the Caste System (Templar), in terms of Structure, but much more brutal, ruthless and punishing.
But I got one question: How are these skins implemented? Trough a script, like the Dark Protoss, or do they have separate entrys in the model section? Or even their own unit entrys, that are listed beneath their respective counterpart? (Khalai/Tal' Darim units)
If anyone, who reads this, owns LotV, I would really appreciate help in answering my questions above.

@AlfredoTheSpectre: Go They actually used the exact same upgrade used before for "dark protoss". Actors even have events for both changes in them. I think the new entries are used by players only. Taldarim units in maps are simply the original ones iwth their models swapped.
Good to know, because I was always curious about how the skin system would work this time.
When I got LotV, I'll take a closer look and build some badass maps with the Tal' Darim, they even got some really nice building skins, not just a retexture.
Already mentioned it, by far the most interesting protoss faction.
