If you're fighting Guard, yeah. Otherwise, ditch it. A Shaper is nice, but don't do it for the armour save. Most weapons, except lasguns and others like it, ignore it anyway. The weapon would need an AP below 7 to pierce it, and frankly, most weapons do.

This has always been an odd upgrade, and most everyone falls on the same line of reasoning: "all weapons AP through it anyway", which is true. Plus the requirement of buying a shaper makes the upgrade more expensive than most people are willing to pay for so small an upgrade.

But go ask an Ork player what good the armor is on his Boyz... and he'll tell you, since he has more epxperience with 6+ armor saves than most anyone else: He will tell you "its for close combat!! Sometimes those lucky 6s make all the difference, and are certainly better than nothin at all!"

Agreed

Yup, as above, only get it if you want to bank on it in cc. Shooting wise it's useless as everything penetrates it, and you should be in cover anyways.

Very true.

In my experience a kroot squad out of cover has a life expectancy of until the enemy shooting phase.
