Default Kroot Shadow Walkers

During the expansion of the Tau empire human forces have run into a mysterious enemy. The Del,ko,ric is a Kroot word meaning “one who lives in shade”. They are a kindred of Kroot who live on a small island on Pech. These Kroot are trained in stealth and the art of the silent kill, the have slowed-if not stopped-the dilution of there DNA. They are extremely good at what they do. The Tau use them as assassins and on occasions a Shadow Walker cell has been spotted, or rather the carnage they leave behind, has been spotted.

So what you want are Kroot NINJAS, right? Just play IG or witchunters, or better yet, just use normal assasin rules...

And your saying a throwing star is a 12 inch range HELLGUN or, at the second suggestion, stil a 12 inch lasgun :

Give him leaping or something instead.

i like the idea but 3+ save kroot(?) make them similar to wood elf waywatchers :-

May infiltrate up to 12" in terrain or open and within line of sight of the enemy.
