Default Kroot Mercinaries for Eldar

I just wanted anyone's take on this idea. Currently I'm thinking of just taking the basic poor-blood Carnivores for a Troop choice so as to not waste valuble slots that Aspect Warriors should be filling. They have a very good statline, so my idea at the moment is to substitute or support infiltrating Scorpions.

Any other opinions?

First of all, NO!

Secondly, maybe. But I think they would only look even vaguely in place in an Exodite army, or possibly Alaitoc.

Just to clarify, are you talking fluffwize or armywize?
My Eldar force has never been the most convenional, it has no craftworld base and would jump on the opportunity to flesh out their ranks.

My query is about how they would work out in game terms...

I meant fluffwise.
I think it would be great to turn your army into a Pirate Raiding force, where Kroot Mercs would not look out of place. Pirates would surely be looking for more volunteers.

Thanks guys, getting the first of my eldar raiding force today. I wanted to get some opinions before letting them sweat their sloppy viscous slime all over my precious wraithbone

The kroot fluff wise would naturally ally with Dark Eldar then rather than with Eldar! Anyway it's an interesting idea and good luck.

Actually Kroot would fit in better with Eldar rather than dark eldar...although both wold be rare sightings. As Rezzy said, the best craftworld that they would fit in with would be alitoch, as local scouts/merc. hunters I could see a sniper/carnivore or tracker squad not being too out of place.

No they wouldn't. DE are pirates just like kroot - Eldar are an arrogant race surviving in the galaxy - being arrogant they would be less willing to ally themselves with another race than the DE would. However I agree that Alaitoc would be the craftworld most likely to accept them.

Maybe they would not ally Tau-Killer, but them might be willing to 'use' them, especially if it means putting less Eldar in the firing line.
