Default Kroot Mercenaries

I was just wondering, what armies go good with kroot mercenaries as allies?* I just got done reading the chapter approved article and would like to know if they are useful in any armies.

Imperial Guard.

Kroot mercs work nicely with my friends guard army. Only trouble he has is spending the required points for the shapers.

They work well for static armies and armies with a lack of close combat ability. IG are great for the Kroot since they are largely static and have a deficit of CC ability, and the Eldar can use them for a cheap backup to their expensive mainstays.

Well they obviously go with Catachan like butter on toast....but aside from an army no one plays....they're good with Guard, Eldar, Dark Eldar, and are decent with Ork.

I personally play them by themselves, but that's just me, being that I don't have any pre-existing armies they'd mesh with. So yeah, armies with average stats, not many CC Skirmishers, lack of infilrators, and I guess armies where they have nothing better to drop the points into.

Hey, I have quite a nice catachan army... I just don't use them anymore cause there is absolutely nowhere with a good jungle table in my area.

I agree with the IG bit, but I'm not so sure about the Eldar part... would they stoop so low as to take mercenaries? Let alone mercs who eat their fallen enemies.

Do the kroot mercs play good by themselves?

its tough. they lack anti tank. all they have are shaper meltaguns and kroot guns.

yea, I've heard its either a hit-or-miss army. also, any unit in the army with access to the armoury can purchase eviscretors, great for anti-tank considering that they would melt right into the rest of your charging army when charging a tank.

Yup, as long as every shaper gets an evicerator, anti-tank isn't too much of a problem. As for anti-infantry, being able to pack up to 40 sniper rifles into an army is pretty deadly, especially since 30 are mounted. If you are facing a large swarm of Nids, the firepower you can pump into them is insane.
