Hmmm, maybe you are referring to the Eaters of the Dead special rule for Knarloc Riders Herd from p.222 of Imperial Armour 3 Taros Campaign?

If I remember right Kroot had the rule in the original Tau codex, too. Basically all it says is in order to pursue a foe/make a sweeping advance you have to pass a leadership test.

What did unleash the hounds do?

If it does exactly what it says on the tin I wish they still had it...

Something like the kroot hounds splitting up from the rest of the group to form a new assault group it sounds like?

The eaters of the dead thing did make you have to pass a leadership test to chase which was kinda annoying, but no matter what all the hounds in the unit used to be able to make one free attack at a escaping unit.

Eater of the Dead and unleash the dog are old obscelete 3rd Edition rules so you don't have to worry about it.

The IA3 Karloc and Kroot merc (both written under 3rd ed) still use Eater of the Dead, but if yuor opponent is ok with it you could drop it.

3rd ed. ribble rable, and why I say IA3 is outdated. As for eaters of the dead and release the hounds in the old dex, IMO fluff wise it was nice but minchanics wise: good rindence to bad rubish.

Release the hounds said that when the kroot won combat and the enemy was retreating, IIRC, each Kroot hound would make a strength 4 hit on them before any running took place. This symbolized the hounds higher initiative to the kindred, in they will viciously hunt down the fleeing enemy, as the kindred don't usually follow up on a beaten enemy (also shown in Eaters of the Dead, they will much rather feast on the dead to advance themselves genetically than risk losing food in chasing down an enemy or two that they might not catch).
