Default Strange tactic for CoD...Sewer Kroot!

I thought of a strange but fun tactic in City of Dreath...
Taking the stratagem "sewer rats" we can use huge units of kroot to assault our opponent's backline... His assault elements should start trying to catch our suits since turn one...and isolated units in the backwards can be engaged by the sewer kroots...With great number and 4+ cover they could be a fearsome unit (100 attack on the charge!!)


Using the stratagem "combat engineers" they could even assault fortified position... Maybe i'm crazy but it wuld be very funny...

Think of an army like this...

Commander Aurora

1 Stealth team
1 Cheap Crisis team (eith BC's)

2 units of 19 kroot+ shaper + 12 hounds
2X8 carbine FW

2 Piranhas
2 IonHead

It should be around 1500 pts
Do you think it could work??...i'll have to try this out...I love strange things

Oh wow! That looks like a good idea! I haven't seen CoD yet, though.

since your kroots don't have frag grenades, how about attaching a kroot ox or two, pop out of the manhole, and give them what for with rapid fire?

the marker should be in terrain anyways right? so you're in cover, and he has to charge you you get to strike first or simultaneous AND you just unloaded a tonn of lead into him too

Ah but thats what combat engineers does though Im not sure if Tau can use it. It replaces frag grenades and their equivilants with the demo charges or whatever they are called which destroys a fortified buildings fortified status and gives the attacker initiative 10 on the charge.

Only does that on fortified buildings
In cover normal frag grenades work, so either strike first (no frags) or at the same time (frags).
Sounds like a good idea- I'd wait in cover and have them charge me, that's what I always do.
Hope this helped

Eh well it wouldnt matter anyway if you moved into the terrain and then assaulted the target squad. They only get to strike first automatically when you charge into cover and while the Kroot dont have the best initiative hounds can help with this and so can their sheer numbers. Plus with 20 Kroot rapid firing into a target squad that could do the trick anyway.

I'm glad you like the idea... I thought combat engineer gave the possibility to give grenades to any unit... I don't have the codex yet :-[

Anyway i think it could work...expecially against certain army..
I could exit the sewer, rapidfire and than wait in cover for my enemy to charge...
If they shoot at me 4+ save and 32 models should do well...
Only watch out for flamers!! :-X(ouch!)

This sounds like an excellent tactics, i dont have CoD yet, but i would just add one thing, in sereate units, use one with the kroot, and hounds, but in the other, have a few oxen, then when your opponent charges after your sewer bound kroot, have the walking gunneries fire hot death upon your opponents. if it seems like it wouldnt work, no sewat, like you said, i enjoyong trying out strange things too, becareful about their main force though, or you could be screwed

You know, if you combine a key buildings stratagem with a sewer rats marker in that building with that many kroot it would be absolutely deadly.
