    Greetings, krootlings, Master Shaper ==Me== here.

    After some thinking, tweaking, and brain munching, I came up with this. Enjoy:

    Master Shaper Mind Stalker-power weapon, bolt pistol, wings, mark of the favored child, blood of the stalker, 2 minor psychic powers, frag grenades
    Shaper Council-3 Shapers, hyperactive nymune organ, 1w/ eviscerator, blood of the stalker, 1 w/ meltagun, kroothawk totem, 1w/ meltagun, surefoot charm, 5 hounds
    Elites
    Headhunter Kindred-15 kroot, hyperactive, nymune organ, Shaper-melta bombs, blood of the stalker, surefoot charm
    Troops

    Carnivore Kindred-15 kroot, Shaper-eviscerator, bolt pistol

    I love Kroot lists. The Kroot are awesome.

    The only thing I see that could be better is your Shaper Council. At only three Kroot, it is a bit short handed. Oh wait, I now see that there are five Hounds. Right. I knew that.

    Good list. You have enough Eviscerators and Power Weapons to deal the Kroot's greatest foe, that being Power Armor. Happy hunting!

    Have you had luck with 6th Sence? It really doesn't take more than a lasgun to kill kroot so unless your expecting pie plated up the wazoo I would try either ork hybrid or fast reflexes for that +1I...

    Veni Vidi Variant
    I came, I saw, I got a different type of Leman Russ.

    The spikey ones go faster.

    98% of the teen population has smoked weed, the other 2% went straight to crack.

    Rules for grenades are on page 72 of the rulebook.

    Yup, that's it

    Plus, when people think kroot (about once every other month :rolleyes: ) they say, "they've got tons of models, I'll use flamers!"

    Flamers, being the bane of all things good and krooty, have their effectiveness cut in half by the 6th sense, which I think is very worth the points.

    Besides, ==My== gaming group uses surprisingly few I4 armies, TSons, Tau, Tyranids who'll go first anyway and I want to shoot, etc, so I should be ok

    Yeah, I played my friend's Kroot with my Guard, I didn't even take my Basilisk, Battle Tank, or Demolisher. No point, really. His Kroot had Sixth Sense and were spread out by two inches, so an ordnance template would probably only kill two Kroot....

    Which is why I'll be charging you on the first turn with around 35 kroot, with the other 60 or so coming in next turn

    That, or hugging cover, gotta love fieldcraft
