Default Take a gander at my Hrud allie for Tau!

I made this with a spare Gutter Runner I had, The paint job is... bad. I was trying to make it so everything is noticable but I don't think that was achieved.

I don't know exactly where a reference would be. But they are "space rats" basicly. They're said to be mercenaries and such also use plasma tech. like the Tau. They also are off-sync with time so usually are difficult to kill.

I got all my sources from the Black Library and GW forums.

Hrud are not allies but may work as mercs like kroot. They have plasma weaponry and use large cloacks to hide their faces. You can find a pic of one in the first 40K rule book where kroot, and necrons were also first seen drawn. From my understanding they are somewhat hairy and slightly rat like, but GW is wanting to get away from that because of just havng space skaven. Anyway, cool idea and good stuff! I might convert a unit to use as kroot mercs, basicaly mercs as hrud but using kroot stats.

I know of the pic you are talking about. Plague Monks would probably have been a better choice for converting.

I meant allies for my Tau, it's not known if all Tau have Hrud Allies.

I get you, it's a very good idea if you ask me. Ive been trying to decide how to convert some troops into use as fire warriors or kroot as inducted into the Tau empire. I was going to convert a few guardsmen from cadian into fire warriors as joining the Tau, you know traitors but it seems like the parts would not fit. You however gave me a great idea of swapping kroot rifles and making caped hooded sken as hired hrud allies! >
