Default Need help coming up with a Gue'vesa equivalent of Kroot.

I've hit a difficult barrier with my make-your-own-army extravagenza. Of course, I like challenges, but I want to see what everyone else thinks.

I have four main options:

1. Gue'vesa who aren't excepted into the fire caste but still want to fight for the greater good, ex. fanatics, having two weapons and normally living in the wilderness. Having a problem with following the retreating enemy in the stead of beating the dead corpses, shouting the virtues of the Greater Good.

2. The light genetic mutation had an unpredicted affect on the female humans born from the genetically altered fire caste gue'vesa, turning them slightly barbaric---see option #1. (amazons, he he he)

3. New drones that are bipedal that have spining razor blades as well as a gun, but an inablility to stop chopping up enemies once they start. I know, not very tau-like, but you think of something.

4. Forget making a Kroot equivilent altogether. Nobody likes them anyways.

Comments?

Its meant to be an option, not a statement.

how about some Squat slayers with frenzy?
or human gland warriors? (Necromunda Golliath Ganger models perhaps)
Or, as Tau don't seem to understand Chaos, what about a Khornate cult?

That's a good point. Tau really don't understand Chaos, so why would they have problems with using Chaos mercs?

Exactly- Tau want people to fight in close combat for them. Khornate cultists want to fight in close combat. The Tau could pay the cultists to fight for them, the cultists get to buy food or equipment or whatever their crazed, bloodthirsty desires might be. Everyone wins.

I'm a little vague on what you are trying to do. Are you trying to build your own army using Kroot rules, or are you looking for models to replace Kroot in a Tau army? Using feral humans would be fun, and the Fantasy Chaos line has a number of useful sprues you could scavenge for parts. Amazons are a little harder, as GW doesn't have too many female models that would serve.

I think he's looking for human models that "count as" Kroot.
but I may well be wrong.

I think that he is trying to come up with a human army using Tau weapons and have a kroot equivolent. ;D

Cheers

Here's my Gue'vesa'o conversion idea.

1. Renegede Epistolary with some chaos artifact for Gue'vesa'o

2. Cordicer with one chaos weapon for gue'vesa'el

3. 2x 10 space marine with pulse rifle, true grit and cc weapon lead by lexicanum with force sword+ apotechary + devilfish for gue'vesa'vre ellite squad

4. 2x 20 tribal with kroot gun (kroot body + human head, modeled like american indian)

5. Predator with TLlascanon + 2 Hbolter + multi tracker.

6. 2x 8 gundrones

My local table top gaming shop say that they don't sell blisters and my friend say there are no rule for Lexicanum in the codex. So I scrap this conversion Idea.
