Default Do any of the Kroot bitz represent anything?

Hey,

I'm putting together my Kroot Carnivores right now and I see an exclamation mark in the directions next to a tonne of bitz which usually calls for an optional upgrade. However in the army builder I don't see any upgrades/additions for the Kroot. Are these just aesthetic bitz or do they represent something?

Mostly for look.

Although the breastplate could help represent the armour upgrade.

Nope. They are purely aesthetic.

Ninja'd.....

I dress my kroot in as much plating as possible, I feel bad making them run around a warfield with nothing protecting them. I mean jeez, they don't even hide their shame. I don't pay for the save though, it just looks better IMO.

What shame??
There was a really interesting yet a bit disturbing article about Kroot ecology in a White Dwarf Magazine.

Let's jsut say that kroot reproduction is truly alien and someone disturbing...and there's not even any sex properly speaking IIRC.

arguably, for breastplates, they probably beat most small arms fire in our world <shrug> they can apparently deflect lasers!

I always liked the jingle bell looking things on the sprue. Some clever placing and your Kroot become bold indeed.

I am now strangely intrigued and wish to find this article. I simply assumed them being birdlike means they have cloaca's.

Do they just snowball genetic material back and forth? (sorry to hijack this post)

White Dwarf 264(uk) pg.96 "Index Xenos: The Kroot"

Now IIRC the US version of WD is 1 or 2 issue behind so it could be issue 263 for the US version.

Please can we stop talking about kroot's genitals and get back on topic?
