Default Kroot Units in Tau army

Since I'm doing a Kroot-themed Tau army, could i use knarlocs, greater knarlocs, vulture kindred, etc. in my army?

Unfortunately we are the only army that cannot take all the Kroot Mercenaries units as attachments.

This to me is stupid since we are technically allied with them, and yet all the other races get to make use of their full abilities.

I thikn the issue is that they are good in CC and that would make the Tau way to powerful, thus we can only use the Kroot units that are listed in our codex.

Yeah, that is a shame. I read through the Kroot Merc book and I liked the options. There's some neat stuff there.

Although the IA3 book uses Knarlocs... Probably would not work at a tournament, but otherwise legal.

IIRC, necrons and 'nids also cannot take kroot mercs.

Along with Space Marines and a jubilee of other armies.

For a Kroot themed Tau Army I'd simply be taking a couple of Kroot squads, maybe putting a couple of knives and stuff on your squad leaders etc. And Anghor Prok, you can't go wrong with him ;D

hell, u want an all kroot army? well, why not use the tau list and convert kroot models to cover the same role. replace tau weapons with kroot made/stolen/scrounged weapons from all races. i saw one guy on here with a pic of his battle suit converted for kroot. if your good at converting and want an all kroot army with tau stats, why not try that?

or you could just use pure kroot mercs

No your not able to use kroot mercs unfortunately [sigh].

However you can use Great Knarlocs.


If you want a kroot themed Tau army, I would do the following.

Take Anghor Prok.

Take at least two kroot squads.

Add kroot bits to your Tau.

Take a look at this link.

Give your shapers pulse carbines and a bonding knife without the special effects.

And in the maybe section.

Use the vulture kindred as a stand in for vespid (use the vespid rules and the kroot models) or even gun drones.

Have Kroot models in fire warrior armour (remember not to use Tau legs, there way to small).

for stealth suits you could have kroot in Tau armour (the 3+ save), a burst cannon (the gun) and say they eat a lot of chameleons (the stealth).

And if you really want to.

Ask your friends if you can use the kroot mercs with your Tau army list.

Hope this helps.

Just convert regular tau models. here's a "Krootside".

greatest band in the universe: www.machinaesupremacy.com

"What warriors of men can stand beside the Space Wolves! The Sons of Fenris they are, hardened in the forge of their harsh world, eager for battle and honour. They are the grey warriors, ashen like the wolf, whose greatest joy is to hear the clamour of steel amidst the din of war. None can step before them, they are the first, proud in their strength and jealous of their renown. Through the storms of the warp they come, upon the very tides of terror, but of such dangers they are uncaring. They are the Space Wolves, the Undefeated, the bane of the Emperor's foes."
