Default O'Shovah and Kroot Mercs

In the codex it says Farsight uses lots of mercenaries. ince he is a Tau renegade, wouldn't the Kroot Mercs be glad to fight for him for a price? I think he should be able to take Kroot Mercs to make up the limitations on the Tau side of things.

Well it could just be that the kroot dont want a conflict of interests like that. I mean working for the Imperials is one thing but the Tau may not be too happy if the kroot work for a renegade like Farsight. When it says Farsight uses mercs I think it was just talking about humans.

Since this is sort of a related topic, could someone with a Farsight army take Kroot mercs from the kroot merc codex on the games workshop site? I don't see why this would be a problem, or does it say that they aren't allowed?

I believe a white dwarf not too long ago contained a chart detailing what races could ally with other races and kroot mercs were listed as being unable to ally with Tau. It did not denominate between Farsight or Empire but just all Tau. I was thinking the same thing first though... it does make some sense.

It doesn't matter to me that much, I don't play a farsight army and I rarely use kroot, but I'm definately thinking about it scine I have so many of them.

the reason O'shova can't use Kroot could be for a variety of reasons. first of all he didn't have any with him before he left (and for all of you saying he's a "renegade" thats still speculation) that or that the Pech colonies are on the other side of the Empire and beyond the gulf, so the idea that he could find Mercs, fluff wise, is small to none.

Well, if farsight could use mercs that would make sense fluffwise... but also make no sense at all!

Farsight players would get lots of neat kroot while tau would only get a few general ones. WTH?

Nope reason being a Farsight army is still just a Tau army with a few limitations, so is classified as Tau, which the Kroot Mercenary rules say they are not allowed to work for.

Well, the fact that there are no Kroot in his armies doesn't surprise me. He would probably have contacted many other races to be his mercenaries, like Demiurg. He wants to be isolated from the Empire, and therefore would have little contact with the Kroot.
