Default legal kroot mercs combat patrol list?

anyone know how to legally built a kroot mercs combat patrol list? legally that is:

when their mandatory shapers have 3W and combat patrol specifically limits wounds to no more than 2?

your ideas, o wise shaper council?

Hi krupintupple,

Do you have a 40k rule book? if so read last paragraph on page 182. It specifically mentions a solution to your problem (using the kroot merc list as an example).

In short, it says to just leave the shaper out...

Hope that helps

Bah!

I only have the mini 'Battle for Maccarage' rules book, so that's why it must've slipped past me. Sounds excellent though, I think I'll post my combat patrol list later on, in order to get a critique of what I've chosen.

Additionally, shapers are the only models that may have special weapons. Unless you are using hunter kindred, but all that you get there is sniper rifles.

Yes but like it was said, the Combat Patrol rules specifically address this. No shapers...

Which really makes for a dull list in my opinion... I guess you can have some fleeting Kroot, but at that point, just spend 60 points, snag a firewarrior squad, and use the better (updated) kindred rules in Tau Empires...

Hi Again,

Combat patrol dose warn that oddities may occur and suggests using a common sense approach (ie anything that is in the best spirit of the game) so you could take a shaper (paying the full points) and say he only has 2 wounds for instance.

The 2 wound rule is intended to stop small skirmishes being dominated powerful character models, not stop you having fun. But remember none of the 40k army list are written with Combat Patrol in mind so adjustments may have to made to make them fit the smaller game mechanics.

for a not so 'legal' solution you could try,

I can't believe nobody's mentioned that you can get the combat patrol rules free and legally on the games workshop website here: http://uk.games-workshop.com/warhamm...mbat-patrol/1/

But I agree, it is a tricky situation. Personally I'd just let you take the shapers as they're such an integral part of the kroot list. Failing that I'd let you simply not use them. But it looks like there's no completely rules legal way around it
