Default Kroot Merc Question

ive read the Kroot Mercenary list and i have an odd question. The codex says that a shaper may take equipment given from their employers or from the armoury. My question is two fold. First, does this mean that as Auxilleries, would i be able to talk any eqiupment from the main lists codex? Second, in an all Kroot army, they are still hired by someone to do a job, so could i just call say Eldar as an employer and follow the same process as my first question?

also what are the stats on or where can i find the stuff for the splinter rifle?

Chorison:

The text that states that they have gifts from their employers simply refers to the Kroot mercenary codex armory only (think of it as flavor, as the word mercenary implies they are fighting for someone for some form of payment). You may not purchase items from the parent list that is taking Kroot as allies (for example, you may not just buy wargear from the Eldar Armory for your Kroot Shapers). They take items from the armory listed in the codex solely. So literally, if you take them as a stand-alone army or as an ally to another army, the only items you will be purchasing come from your Armory there in the Kroot Merc List codex.

The stats on a splinter rifle can be found in the Dark Eldar codex.

thanks for the splinter stuff, but it states both in the codex. if it ment the armoury, why would it state it like that, the wording doesnt seem logical

I know it seems odd and doesn't really make that much sense.... but that's just how it is.

The Kroot armory is full of weapons from various other races--that's how it refers to them as employers.
