You can't play the Kroot mercenaries in the Tau army, but it is fine to play human auxiliaries and normal kroot carnivores in the same army.

Khanaris has it correct.

The Kroot in the tau codex are not "allies" they are actual codex Troops, so you can always have them (unless you play a themed army or enclave for example). The human aux's are an ally per se. However, Tau has no real allies yet rule wise, so there's no conflicts at all. Take them both if you wish.

It's the Kroot Mercenary list, as Khanaris pointed out, that the Tau may not take a hand in as it is a stand alone army and the Tau only draw from their own Kroot, not the Kroot Mercenaries (they're a bit too rogue for the Tau to deal with). These are the Kroot you can ally to virtually any army, short of the Inquisition, Necrons and Tyranid.

Knarlocs have special rules for the Tau army, which you can still take. They simply require a squad of Kroot already in the army. You cannot take the Knarloc version that was created for the Kroot Merc army though (though it's not that different if at all!). So yes, you can still field your Knarlocs and Kroot (codex Tau Kroot only!) and Human Aux's.

I didn't know this either...news to me.

Where are the rules to support this? I don't see it in the Tau Codex...unless this is from Imperial Armor, and then it's no exactly official, no?

kroot and human aux's can be taken together and I think it's definitely an excellent choice to represent the aspirations of the Tau empire- 3 different races fighting together ( under Tau command of course )
for the Greater Good!

The rules for the Knarlocs are available from ForgeWorld's website. They can be used in both Kroot Merc armies and Tau armies.
