I was just wondering if anyone uses regularly or just for fun, the Kroot Mercenaries.
I was interested in buying some and trying them out. I was also planning on mutating them somehow to represent chaos and maybe giving them some of their different kindred abilities/upgrades to represent these mutations. They seem like a good fluffy choice and was wondering what people think?
on a seperate note that has nothing to do with this I was wondering about using the new thousand sons in a kill team. I wanted to put 2 in with my 6 other chaos marines. Do you think this would be chessy due to ap3 bolters? imo it seems like it would be.

can you field Kroot along with 'regular' chaos armys? or are you refering to apocalipse?
i did say i was new to the game?
I think you can under the kroot mercenary's army list on GW's website.
It says you can add them if you have at least one choice from FOC which you wish to add them too.
example: you need one troop choice to take a choice of kroot troops.
chaos is also not listed as one of the armies, which may not take them.
It would be some suitably twisted and ruthless Kroot willling to deal with the forces of Chaos (fearless come to mind )
I haven't experienced them with Chaos, but would love to hear some replies on conversion ideas, colours etc. Awesome idea

Did you see you can use the Kroot with Daemon Hunter ?
I think it's just.... strange necause Battle Sister and Space Marines cannot....
I was going to field either 1 squad just to try them out. I was going to paint them to look kind of like their flesh is rotting, with blood seeping out from under it. I was also going to add spiky horns jutting out of them from the chaos sprue, along with mutations. Still need a possessed box for these conversions to work. This project is not going to happen anytime soon because I'm still working on my 1500 point army though. I was thinking of giving them bold(fearlessness), or fast reflexes(due to the many mutations) as an adaptation,
Just throwing the idea about some mutated kroot, thats all.
Other than that, it's a cool idea, and for fluff maybe the Kroot were corrupted just like humans sometimes are and are a type of cultist, only Kroot not human. The abilities could, as previously said, be mutations and daemonic "gifts".

It's my understanding that Kroot sometimes just go work for Chaos armies for a while, and then return with the genetic material gathered...not sure how that works though, with corruption, and then general unwillingness of Chaos to just let them go on their way...unless they were taking the corruption back genetically to the Kroot homeworld....MWA HA HA HA.
