Default Can Kroot Hounds use tools?

Kroot hound models have a number of little tools on them (hooks, knives, grenades, stuff that the carnivores also have). Are these just for transportation purposes, or can kroot hounds actually hold and use tools and thus also weapons?

Seeing as the codex says they are armed only with their fangs I would assume not.
The extra stuff is just to make them look cool. Besides, I don't think they have hands.

I assume you are talking from the fluff point of view?

It's an interesting subject. Though they're brighter than the average real life dog, I don't think they quite have the ability to use such things. Probabally just transportation.

Hooks? Hm. Maybe like a little weapon the Kroot clip onto the hound's feet (think horse shoes).

I know if I had a war hound I would attach all sorts of sharp things to it.

AFAIK the bits are just for pimpinī your models (regarding their obnoxiuos nutrition) but remember that Tau just improved Kroot armament therefore they can use tools... I think.

Iīm very sorry :-X

I missed the word hounds at the start of your post, sorry. I donīt think hounds can use tools, since they are a genetic dead end in the kroot geneology... this means that they do just fine with their claws and maws...

I don't think you would be allowed to keep that dog for long

Kroot hounds won't use weapons, it's just the kroot keeping things on them, notice kroot don't tend to have pockets

wait if the codex says they are armed with their fangs, do they count as additional close combat weapons? Thus giving kroot hounds 4 attacks on the charge?

@Cammerz
They do have bags and all sorts of belts to strap their equipment on. Getting your hound to carry some stuff would be good too.

@Tausand sun
They aren't really "additional" weapons so I would say no.

Heh.

No.

All fangs/nails/claws/teeth/etc. usually come as a set on any given organ they are attached to. Otherwise, each Hound would just have A fang...one tooth only...it's the exact same way in that squads have weapons, and not A weapon...3 A on the charge...that's it...

technically I guess the kroot hounds can misfire a kroot rifle by chewing on it? ???

Kroot hands his rifle to the hound.. NUM NUM <PEW PEW> as why kroot missed.
