Default a Q about kroot pending new codex

i was talking with some mates and the one question we all thought that could possibly happen but i haven't heard a rumour about is kroot shapers getting access to power weapons/ evisceraters like in the merc list

anyone heard anything like this? or what do you think the chances are?

Haven't heard anything about that. I think it might be possible, but a bit doubtful.. the only change I've heard are kroot hounds and oxen being added as upgrades to a kroot carni. unit instead of an attached unit.

Would would be really good, would be to put the Kroot merc list in the back of the Tau codex. Ive had a lot of an earfull on the GW forums when I said this but it really would be hitting 2 birds with one stone. And maybe giving the Kroot Master Shaper WS 5 wouldnt hurt either.

And while Im at it, why not put in the human auxilaries?

the whole point of kroot mercs is they work outside the tau empire, hence should not be a part of the tau codex.

I think its a good idea that hounds and krootox are now squad upgrades. And ive also heard whispers about some kind of better armour upgrade for kroot, but im not too sure about this one.

Yes, I've heard whispers of that armour upgrade too.. I think Human Aux might get put in, as they're part of the empire, but highly doubtful about kroot mercs - what Deadnight said.

Well, considering Krootox were taking up that Heavy slot, they *might* see more action now...

Might. I might consider them.

They could still use a point reduction...even 10 pts less would be better.

10!!! . Ha! I still wouldn't touch them for over 30. Pay more for a Krootox than a battlesuit. Even if they are just an upgrade and don't take up a wated HS slot it is just plain not worth it. Even at 30 I'd have to hesitate. Make it 20 or 25 Maybe. But considering what you get still not economical.

Yeah, pay more for a Krootox than a battlesuit without weapons...what good'll that do ya? Give'em a Plasma Rifle, then upgrade his S to 6 (somehow) and T to 5, and see how many points you have! Krootox aren't really as expensive as people make out to be. It's just the taking up of a HS slot that makes them no good.
