Default kroot battle suit

do you guys think that if a shaper fought with a cadre long enough and was impressively skilled that the tau might give him, or make them a kroot battle suit. my friend came with the idea when my shaper killed his necron lord(pure fluke) i thought it would be fun to build a suit like that so yea what do you guys think

Take a look at this, I found it earlier and I think it looks much kooler than the regular battlesuit.

That's kind of a funny mental image. I imagine a battlesuit made of twigs and bark. I always thought stealth suits and pathfinders always worked closely with kroot. I never thought kroot would get their own battlesuit. It seems unfluffy.

Well when you look at the bottom of the pic, you see its a group of Kroot renegades and they take whatever they can. Plus i think it looks so much better and an awesome conversion. >

It's a good mental image, but it could not happen. If the tau gave the kroot battle suits then the kroot would have them outgunned and overpowerred cc. Although i suppose the kroot are very loyal, they probably wouldn't give them the best battlesuits, and if they did try to betray the tau, the tau could have built in remote self destruct bombs in them. So its hard to say.

And if they did try to disobey my squad of broadsides could decimate them.

Anythings possible seeing as you can make up whatever fluff you want.

It could start out with experimentation and prototyping for new Suits. Seeing as the Tau have the Shooting side covered maybe a Stealth/Close Combat variant would let the Kroot excel in his area.

Imagine a Kroot in a XV15like battlesuit same size but shaped for a Kroot ie longer legs different shaped helmet with quills exposed, Predator style shoulder mounted Pule Pistol and a Poison Injector Forearm Blade.

Ofcourse with so much power he'd have to be drugged up so he'd be more subjective or something :P

I just couldn't see the kroot using battlesuits in general. I don't hink it fits they're style of combat. And from a logistical standpoint where would they get spare parts and maintenance? It just doesn't seem likely that the Tau would ever just give away this kind of technology and it seems equally unlikely that the kroot would want it.

If the Kroot are able to build a sphere shape starships they have the parts for a battlesuit

That's completely untrue. Just because one race can build an advanced starship similar to the advanced starships of another race doesn't mean that the two will have an parts commonality whatsoever.

Case in point. During world war 2 the Germans built the Panther tank. It was arguably the best tank of World War 2. On the otherhand the Russians built the T34. That was another vehicle that was also an excellent vehicle. Parts commonality... ZERO!

So no, the fact that they can build a fancy space ship does not mean that they can replicate the systems and components that make up a battlesuit.
