Well, at least now you'll realize that a little bit of research, even in the form of the search function, or at the very least looking at a few of the topics on this page alone.... can go a long way to making you not look foolish.

Please, use the search function. I'm only kind about this sort of infraction once per person.

And now for review, please enjoy this educational piece.
Posting, and You

I think Kroot Mercenaries counts as a Kroot army. :P

I think it would be a great idea. I have tried to make an army list, including citadel and forge world models, but it ended up costing far more than any ordinary 40k army. If GW could bring out some more models and boxed sets, it would be awesome.

Prior to the release of the latest Tau codex, I was hoping that Kroot units would be included such that you could create an army entirely of Kroot - kind of like the way that grey knights are included in the daemonhunters codex. The list would look something like this:

HQ:
Tau Commander (as normal, but no longer 1+)
Kroot Master Shaper

Troops:
Fire Warriors (may not be taken unless you have a Tau Commander)
Kroot Carnivores

So, you could have a list consisting entirely of Tau (with a commander and fire warriors), or entirely of Kroot (with a master shaper and carnivores). You could mix it up a bit, but you couldn't have a master shaper commanding other Tau units without a Shas'el/Shas'O present.

Instead, we have an entirely separate Kroot list that has some minor incompatibilities with the Kroot in the Tau codex - including squad options, and the initiative of Kroot hounds. Worse still, since the Kroot mercenary list may not be allied with a Tau force, the rest of the galaxy has access to a wider range of Kroot units than the Tau who are supposedly allied most closely with them.

A Kroot Merc army does accurately represent an all Kroot army. Kroot who dont fight for money and hire fight for the Tau empire. Protected by the Tau the Kroot would not need to let alone have to field their own independant armies unless they wanted to (kroot mercs).

If you want to represent a Kroot army a Tau commander and Squad of Firewarriors along with smattering of other Tau units with the other 5 troops choices filled with Kroot. To represent a minor Tau garisson and Kroot volunteers or what not.

Wow. Threadomancy, but I suppose I should give the answer...

The reason that Tau have access to less kroot types than other races is because the tau don't have Kroot MERCENARIES. They have Kroot "allies", that they basically keep on a short leash, thus stopping them from developing and radically altering like they would as mercenaries or on their own. The other races that they would accompany just don't care near as much, so they get to reap all of the benefits of apathy.
