Bow down to the Trade Federation.

You should really search the rest of the forum. There is lots of info on Kroot. But yeah Kroot are usefull. They can be used as meat shields and when you charge, you can get tons of hits.

if u want really usefull kroot, get knarloc and great knarloc. they are both excellent models and units. knarlocs can infiltrate and have quite a few special rules (see Chapter Approved Kroot Mercenaries) yes they can be used with tau. Great Knarlocs are awesome i saw i guy use them and wow!!!! i believe they are S7 or 8 with rendeing. they have 3 or 4 wounds and like T5 or 6. well worth any point costs. and i think they can still infiltrate.

The same question came up in the Tau Questions thread and what i said there also applies here:

Theres a tool called the Search function, Kroot have been discussed many a time so you should be able to gleen all you need from the below threads:

Sorry Kroot don't Suck: http://forums.tauonline.org/index.ph...43168#msg43168

Kroot: http://forums.tauonline.org/index.ph...94256#msg94256

Kroot. How good are They: http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=6553.0

KROOT SUCK: http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=963.0

I think those threads alone should contain what your looking for so enjoy your reading. But if you need more threads try using the Search function on the top left of the screen. People do on occasion get fed up with the same topics appearing continually after all.

Shas'O Sam:


This is a topic from the Important Stickies on this subject.

Kroot are not Fire Warriors and they are not Battle Suits. They have a very different function in the game. And they can carry the day and they can win the game. It all comes down to how you use your Kroot. If you're just playing the game to kill every last model of your opponent's army, then no, they're not the end-all be-all answer. However, in games where victory points, objectives, etc are concerned, Kroot are definitely worth taking and will help to get that game won for you. They're cheap as dirt in small squads, infiltrate and have a great weapon for their price. You could grab 3 small squads of them for very little and plant them all in a table quarter and still control it after losing 2/3rds of the models. Savez? Kroot are great
