Models sound cool, but I don't think the Tau would do that. All Kroot accept the Greater Good already (or else they would have been destroyed by the Tau). Also, the Kroot are Auxiliries. Like the Roman Legion, the Tau are not going to equip Kroot with Pulse weaponry and armor. They don't even give them Human auxiliry pulse weapons or armor. I still want to see the models though! Post some pics!

Cool idea, I'd love to see some pics. As for fluff-wise, I think only the Tau really believe in the greater good, that's why the kroot are still just mercenaries. And as for the armor, I think the Tau value the kroot without it as the kroot can fight better and move through cover as they are. But still, thumbs up on your idea, give us some pics.

What you made sounds like one of the trench raiding squads they used during WWI. You could even deepstrike them and it would be perfect! ;D It sounds like a cool idea and I want to see some pics! coolest smiley ever! --> :rockon:

Its nice to hear someone taking time to make some really wicked sounding custom kroot. and hopefully the house rules he puts in could up their stats for being all uber and such. right now, they're about as effective as trying to kill someone by throwing an M-80 at them. (see, theres a very small chance that if its timed just right, its deadly, otherwise it just kind of taps him falls to the ground and kills itself.... which happens to be exactly what my kroot do all the time.) Do post some pics!
