You could do it, it should be a fine conversion, just be sure to make an approprate KROOT GUN. But when would you need 8 kroot-ox? Most Tau players are reluctant to use even one :.
I personally like the current model, so have a few myself, but I'll have to hold out judgement on thier uses untill I get my hands on the new codex.

i should also say that some can be used as kroot hounds and the spare lizardmen bitz can be used to add a "theme" to your kroot.

If you model the guns well enough, I think this would look very nice and personal :P

Not a bad idea... i am going to do the same thing but have the kroot riding the cold ones... this would fill my Mounted Kroot for my mercs list... as the forgeworld versions are just a tad pricey. Strange rules though, why have a sniper rigle (heavy1) on a mount??? But at least it allows me 10 more snipers in the mercs list. Niiiice bit of deep forest and those are units to really annoy.

forge world only do knarlocs not krootoxes and if i rember the rules correctly knarlocs have kroot with rifles and Great knarlocs have bolt thrower, exlosive bolt thrower and kroot gun. none of those are a sniper rilfe (heavy 1)

What i was saying is I would make my own Tracker Kindred. Tracker Kindred are mounted on Knarlocs. And carry the Kroot Hunting Rifle... which is an Heavy1 sniper rifle. I couldnt recall their proper name so called them Mounted Kroot. Page 21 Kroot Mercs Codex
http://uk.games-workshop.com/tau/kro...-merc-list.pdf

Foreworld does sell Kroot Gnarloc Riders
http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/knarrider.htm

I just want to use cold ones instead of buy forgeworld models. A full unit of 10 would break my bank... as cold ones are only 2 each.. easy money easy conversion.

And more personal too. Applied overall to your Kroot, I think it'd look great.
