Default A list without Kroot

I'm looking to start a Tau army. I don't like the way the kroot look, Can I make a list with out them? I getting 24 firewarriors, 2 braodsides with sheild drones,1 pathfinder team , and 3 Command Xv8's. I plan on getting 3 devil fish, 6 stealth suits, 4 Piranha Skimmers and a Hammerhead. Can I make a competive list with these modles?

Lists without kroot are quite viable.

About 2/3rds of my lists don't have kroot. When I make all-comers lists, usually I don't take any.
Proudly banned from both Mech Tau Tactica and Advanced Tau Tactica by Kai'Lore. Kai'Lore has no honor and the fact that my mere presence reminds him of this is more than his cowardly person can bear. He banned me from the new site after less than a day. =)

Kroot > Most infantry
Lasguns > Kroot

Naturally, against any list where you know they have shooty-things, and there isn't an overabundance of cover... Kroot fade.

Kroot are cheap and effective when used in minimized squads, that being said, they are not a necessity only a nice option since they can infiltrate, do good in a shooting role, and are decent in CC.

I like to run some in every list I use, but I only ever run 1 squad of 10, so they are not central to my battle plans and are easily removed if I need the points.
