With all of the technological wonder of the Tau, it fits in there that they would have some barbaric, primitive allies. I also feel that Kroot also help the basics of close combat Tau gameplay. They are, basically, the only close combat unit of the Tau, and they're not too bad at it either. They're slippery, able to get through jungles, meaning they're mobile like most other Tau units, and have a lot of skill in close combat, aiding those units that are weak, and clumsy.

Kroot are definently imporant to the Tau armies. When you look at the stats, Fire Warriors are incompetant when it comes to CC. When a unit of 5 Space Marines charges a unit of 12 Fire Warriors and kills 5 of the Fire Warriors while the Tau kill maybe 2 Space Marines it's obvious that the army needs some CC strength. Kroot, which have very little save, are still very useful to the Tau army. If kept in cover it is possible for the Kroot to charge from cover into any enemy units that are getting too close to the Tau lines. This allows the Tau units time to retreat to a safer position as well as allowing the Kroot to do serious damage to the enemy. However, because of their bad save it is imparitive that they stay in cover and not run out into the open. Their save also brings up the need to have large amounts of Kroot in a unit.

no. i like kroot ALOT i love playing with the mercs. i dont use them with tau not because there not useful, but because tau are such sissies that i'd rather load all the tau in tanks;you see if i were to put kroot on the field the tau would get distracted by the kroots manliness and wouldnt be able to shoot at anything because they'd be too busy trying to hook up with the kroot. but of course the kroot wouldnt have it so they'd be all like " Click click get the hell away from u midget freak! ima about to eat u and ur family!"


no. kroot dont belong with tau, but im glad GW made tau because otherwise i wouldnt have ever known about kroot.

I think that they do belong with tau but i think that it is unfluffy that they have such a bad armor save... They can equip Humans with some tau gear and Vespids but they donot allow kroot one single slice of armor... thats unfluffy...

They are pillbox topps; plain and simple. they have definate uses and like all things TAU must be played carefully. they fit well with the fluff as the very light infantry. Tau lives are expensive; hire mercinarys to die with very little equipment. the US army does it all the time.
