Default Kroot are better than Orcs

My friends, I have concluded tht orks will alway be beaten by Kroot in close combat enlless their the warboss. Kroot have better strength, BS, And Initiative than orks. I tried 15 kroot against a squad of boys of practically the same number and slaughtered them. It was so funny. It was my first time playing orcs too. I have learned though not to let killer kans get to close for now on.

Aren't Orks pretty tough chappies? Oh wel, let loose the kroothounds of war!

Anyway, Kroot CAN be good against ordinary Orks, and WILL be shootied in the most common ork "tactic"... (Shoot da choppy, chop da shooty! Wif der tau, you shoot dem ones dat are nekkid, den chop dem one shootin' at yer.) They're great against ORCS of course, since they do walk around in big squares and that makes it easier to hit them... oh wait, wrong game.

Yup Orks have str 3.
If you look closely you'll see that if you put orks against kroot in hth, both parties will be rolling 50/50 across the board, 50% to hit 50% to wound, its almost like kroot are anti-orks, lol.
But kroot are cheeper, and orks get the bonus for choppas agiant heavy armored troops.

Default Re: Kroot are better than Orcs

This is only if the Kroot get the charge. If the Orcs charge, the choppa is on the other kroot...or something. Orc Waaagh doubles Orc Initiative the phase they charge, and this gets them one up on the Kroot, striking first and doing all the damage first. At the very least, Orcs come with 6+ saves but Kroot come with nadda, and this can hurt. You have to charge them to rob them of the Init boost.

Now, where shooting is concerned, this is a no brainer. BS3 is better than BS2. Even an Orc can understand that. However, the choice between using Kroot rapid fire and not getting to assault or holding fire and charging in is s tough one lodged squarely in the numbers you're dealing with. If there's just a few left in the mob, you might sidle up and blast the green out of 'em. If there's a lot, more than you can drop in one shooting phase or enough that you feel uncomfortable about them charging you, slog in and comence to close combat.

I don't know about that. More power to ya, but you Orcs still only have BS2, hitting on 5s. I lost more Kroot to Rokits than I did Shootas or Sluggas. Waste of a decent insta-kill, but I'll take it on Kroot. (lol)
