i see that you're going for a theme here, which is great. all kroot armies should be on a theme - i think that should be international law. Your goaded knarlocs will act as an extremely dangerous shock force, but they'll need some mobile backup if they're to succeed in tearing the proverbial heart out of the enemy (and eating it! i love krrot) i am a great believer in the power of the humble vulture kindred, as their high movement speed and corresponding long charge range makes them an ideal melee support unit, able to engage potential threats to the Knarlocs while the uber-chickens wreak havoc on weak points in the enemy lines.

my advice: drop the oxen, give the master shaper wings and stick him with a juicy squad of vultures (or make the Council winged and stick him with them), then swap the plasma guns on the carnivores for assault weaponry, and use the spare points to bulk each 'vore kindred to 11 kroot - for a measly few points you make it that much harder for an opponent to force a morale check, and increase the squad's capacity for dishing out hurt on the charge.

maybe throw in a Hunter kindred if you have room on the FOC - the strength of a kroot army lies in remaining mobile and catching the enemy flat-footed, and one of the best ways to do that is to force a few pinning tests here and there.

may i also add that mounted greater knarlocs are awesome. that is all.

Realised the above was illegal.

EDIT: Wait... Majority toughness 3 dosnt exist for the goaded or baggage herds. Since Hits are randomised before rolling to wound... correct?
