Default O'Shovah and kroot

O'shovah and his breakaway mercenaries arent allowed kroot, but couldnt he hire the kroot who still work as mercenaries, as O'shovah himself being a mercnary,the woul aquire lots more genetic material to take back home with them.

O'shovah is part fo the Tau empire Codex, so classified as Tau. If i remember correctly Kroot mercenaries wern't allowed with Tau forces, so that would be a no...at least rules wise.

Fluff wise it doesn't seem too much of a problem, they are already violating their treaty by acting as mercenaries, so working for a Tau renegade wouldn't be any worse.

I think the idea is that farsight has completely detached himself from all ties within the empire, including krrot and the new vespid soldiers. Slightly fluffwise, the reason O'shovah broke away was because he felt others let him down to the extent that he lost many men and were conered by the orks etc. This could lead to a belief that ONLY his own tau warriors were good enough to fight alonogside him, he could only trust them to back him up when required!

Then why does he serve as a mercenary alongside other armies if he only has faith in his fire warriors?also could it be like in wharhammer F,like those 'ask your opponents permission' sort of thing?

You could make a house rule that he can which would require the opponents permission, but to make it fiar in regard to his rules you shoudl really limit the unit sizes and amounts, plus NO shaper, even maybe increase their point by 1. Then again, who wants to be fair anymore...?

I lost my old Tau Codex when a buddy of mine's living room burned, but I don't think it ever says in the old or new one that O'Shovah hired himself out to any other army or calls him a mercenary. Plus, read the little quote he makes in his section of the new codex. With that attitude, I doubt he'd allow any other race to fight with him, whether or not the mainstream Tau have accepted them. Heck, that's probably an incentive for him not to take them. Also, I doubt the kroot or vespids would risk their acceptance into the Tau empire by fighting with Farsight. That's the fluff side of it. As far as needing Kroot, that's unrealistic. O'Shovah is hardcore enough in close combat, and with up to seven bodygaurds in his posse, you'd have a hard time finding a role for the Kroot to fill.

in the old codex there was an imperial report that said he had been seen fighting alongside many other races,including chaos space marines,in fact it also said that tau mercnaries had been fighting along side kroot come to think of it.

But does it say that those Tau mercenaries are from the Farsight clique? I can see how mainstream Tau could be seen as mercenaries by those small-minded Imperials, but I don't think O'Shovah would ever hire himself out or hire someone on, especially with the attitude he has now, in the new Codex.
