Well the lack of armour value means that they have armour but it doesnt do a good job of anything one guy said that spaces marines carry one tonne of armour

A RIPPED UNDERSHIRT THING DOESNT REALLY COUNT AS ARMOUR. AT LEAST ORKS HAVE SOME METAL PLATES ON THEM.

ALSO, WHY ARE YOU SHOUTING???

If kroot had pounds of armour, they wouldn't be able to sneak around in the bushes.

Please don't post subject lines and entire subjects all in CAPS it's impolite and ignorant.

And the only armour Kroot models have are the optional shoulder pads. Kroot also have the option of a 6+ save, representing minimal armour. Something like what metal shoulder pads would grant....

Chimp, please take more time with your posts. Otherwise, I am going to have to start trimming. :-\


The Kroot do have the ability to take armor, which can be represented by the plates on the sprue. Otherwise, what protection they are wearing is apparently not very effective or is represented in their Toughness.

He does have a kinda good point...the IG basically wear T-shirts right?

But then again giving them armor saves by default would probably make them too good in GW's minds.
