Default kroot mercenaries

this may already be going but i couldn't find it

is it just me is or is it a bit lame (note:lame is the only word i can use to address my feeling with out someone getting the cane) that the army that are all about reconciliation and love to your brother from another mother(land) and first found the kroot can only have some troops yet the imperial guard 'kill the Xenos, kill the Xenos' can have HQ, elite, fast and heavy as mercenaries

the tau sound be able to use more kroot then just the troops like that shapers as at least Elites.

Are you talking about the Kroot mercenaries list in the tau codex?

Because thats just fluff, there arent any rules that say that IG can use Kroot.

He's talking about the Kroot Mercenaries Chapter Approved list. And the reason that Tau can't have them is because the Kroot Mercenaries don't work with the Empire - that's the point. The Tau like to pretend that all Kroot have allegiance to the Tau and the Kroot they employ are regimented just like the Fire Caste, hence why they just come as "Kroot Carnivores." If the Mercs did work with the Empire, they'd have to split down to what the Tau expect. By working freelance, the Shapers can get the best pickings, allowing for all the evolutionary adaptations in the Mercenary list. The Tau discourage the Kroot practice of eating the fallen, which is why their Kroot don't get evolutionary adaptations.

Please clean up your punctuation =) I hope that answers your question.

It is a bit sad that the Tau cant use some of the great stuff that the Mercenaries have but think about it for a second.

Have you ever actually seen someone use the Mercs as part of their army ALL the time? Didn't think so.

Sure it sucks that the Mercs have more stuff but hey its GW who makes the rules and since I first complained that tau have no power weapons I have come to learn to just take how things are as the way things are. I personally am keeping close tabs on who gets the next codex update and I keep hoping that the Tau get some new stuff soon! NEW STUFF IS AWSOME!

Maybe he complained because he didn't even read Tau fluff. If you want power weapons, Tau aren't for you.
