    I've been toying with the thought of taking kroot mercenaries in my Khorne army (using the standard chaos army list) either as 1-2 turn cheap distractions via infiltrate untill my berserkers get into close combat or as a counter attack squad placed behind the berserkers to provide covering fire and extra hand to hand support. the idea of having hunter kindred as a heavy choice is also nice for a heavy cc army such as khorne (10 snipers for 101 points is a nasty surprise when they infiltrate in) and for all the fluffsters out there i see no reason why chaos wouldnt hire kroot, Khorne gets the blood and skulls and the kroot eat the rest not only do they kill the enemy they clean up after themselves. Anyhoo feel free to comment

    I think it is possible to have a great list using kroot mercenaries, playing them myself, butwith khorne, it would be really hard.

    Bezerkers are very expensive, so it would limit the number of kroot you would get, and kroot without numbers are...... not that great. they easily die to rapid fire.

    I play a kroot army too. They rule in jungle fighting scenarios or where there is a lot of woodland cover about, but otherwise they're a bit flimsy. Kind of like orks without the toughness.

    I'd stick with the heavy support options like the snipers and the krootox (though they're irritatingly expensive for what they are.) and hide them in a wood somewhere.
