Default Chaos Mercs?

I am making a kroot army with my friend at the moment and I was wondering if they would fit in with my slaanesh in apocalypse games (we're trying to make it that the kroot are with the chaos because they take them where they need to go). Also we are making a master shaper (any possible names? I was thinking Rekanis the iron maw) and I was wondering if the chaos marines would reconstruct his left arm (we sort of screwed up all the ones we had) and armour it? Also would they be green if they mostly fought orks? (any suggestions for names?)

Kroot take on the characteristic they eat the most. If you fought orks, why not green? Kroot shapers with reconstructed arms, could be a sign of "payment".

As for fitting in, it is not too unusual for a rogue commander to use others.

It would most deffinitly make sense fluff wise if those kroot ate some chaos tainted things. You could always say the Shaper lost his arm from fighting for position amoung his fellow kroot, and the chaos marines gave him a cyber arm to help him control the brood he now leads. I suggest the name, Demshtal the Iron Claw Tyrant.

As for being green, there is no reason they can't be. It is actually suggested that kroot who fight ork commonly turn differing shades of green.

I was thinking with that name Demshtal The Iron Clawed Tyrant, I could get a flayed one and whack that on as a hand, along with the armoured arm... I was also thinking that he was "abandoned" by Tau, who were retreating to the main base and had his arm shot off by my chaos marines, who with his kroot he sided with. He also then went crazy and now hates Tau, we started him and his legs are jumping of a downed drone.

Kroot are green beacuse there home worlds were controlled by orks, and the kroot have a strange digestive system that extracts useful DNA from there food that gives them certain ablities. Because of this they have ork charaistics: e.g. green skin, strength, good in close combat, etc etc

Kroot have their own ships the name for which escapes me at the moment but if paid well enough Kroot mercenaries could be fighting almost anywhere and for almost anyone. Due to low model/points count my wife has augemented her Eldar in a couple fights with my kroot warriors.
