Default Using Gue'ves (human) auxillaries as count as kroot

So here is my dilema: I really want to use some kroot in my army but I hate the models. Plus I wanted a way to use human auxillaries with my tau. So here is my idea: humans that count as kroot.

Crazy huh?

I'm planning my tau to come from a forest world where the humans that live there are master woodsmen. They bring there hunting hounds to battle with them and use primative rifiles. I'm planning to use modified catachan models (they look like s4 to me lol) and modified chaos hounds.

What do you think? Is this a bad idea?

Nope, its not a bad idea, but I'm sure there are some krootphiles who would be angry!

I love it! Pluss when we finally get gue'vesa you will be set! (Ok I am dreaming here, don't tred on me!) Anyway I really do like it. I would only see an issue if you were dealing with WYSIWYG, but otherwise go for it. I would also suggest that if you hate the Kroot models, you might still like the modeling part of them if you try.

Not bad. I do love my Kroot though so I'm not completely behind this.

But hey points for being original!! What are you going to represent their Kroot Rifles as? Bolters? Str 4 after all.

Just be sure to festoon them in blades and trophies. And make a guy with some weird Autocannon thing for the Krootox

Catachan models.


It makes sense.

Despite the heresy of it, it's still kosher.

It can be done and yes indeed Catachan works well.

Another fun combo is Lizardman Saurus body and head with kroot arms/gun...pretty sweet model. I got 12 of those as 'count-as' Tarrelian.

This is what I'm trying to do, I like the idea of using Fire warrior models 'cause they'd fit more with the way Tau armies look. Even more than IG auxies.

I'll try to get one for you this weekend.

They are not painted but you will see. I think they look awesome.

I am doing this for some of my troops as well, I even have fluff for it.
Basically a large group of isolated humans joined a particular mercenary Kroot Kindred, Near the moment this kindred had been going to rejoin the Tau because an Imperial Inquisitor killed their human "shaper". The human shaper's dying instructions were that he requested that his Kroot shaper counterpart devour his body, and lead his troops to hunt the Inquisitor down.
