I was wondering if ever the witch hunters fought kroot? Because I was going to do a whole theming on them, like put dead ones on bases etc, and i would like to know if this would be a good idea or not. Also what units would i include in the army, sorta specialized to killing kroot??
Yup Sisters would fight Kroot. Especially if they were allied with Tau.
Some made up reasons why Sisters would fight Kroot: Kroot find an abandoned convent on a forest world and take it over/desecrate it/etc. Sisters stumble across it on a Crusade and fight to win it back; Kroot found an old Ecclesiastical tomb and devoured the remains of a saint/holy person and the Sisters want revenge; Sisters are setting up a new Sanctuary on a forest world and the locals (i.e. kroot) don't like the idea and try to stop them
As to weaponry, all I can recommend is flamers. Kroot have decent T and a poor save. meaning rapid firing and flaming does them in.
Hope this helps
If you win games against Nids with flamers (aside from the Inferno Cannon on a Hellhound), you're playing against opponents with stupidity of impressive magnitude.
Bolters and Heavy Bolters will take them down due to poor save on their part. Anything that will put many wounds on them would be good, so avoid meltas and plasmas, but take lots of Bolters and Flamers...
Good unit to fight them with - your basic Sister really, plus Celestians to go into CC with them if they got close. I would consider even taking less Exorcists and more Immolators, if that were a poor Kroot army that you would be going against.
If you're talking about a Kroot Merc Army, then sure they would fight against them. Kroot tend to ally with most of the "dark" powers as opposed to the "light"powers, so they could be there with whatever Heretics the WH are going after.
As for killing Kroot Mercs, they're probably going to infiltrate a whole bunch of units with eviscerators, so don't expect your vehicles to do a whole lot. If you stay in cover most of the time they won't be able to strike first due to an average Initiative. Flamers are definately good, can we say Kroot Barbecue?

for going against a Kroot army, I'd definately go with Heavy flamers galore. Hflamers will ignore the cover save, and has decent STR to counter the T of the Kroot.
Part of the question would be if you want to be offensive, and go hunting, or be defensive, and counter his moves.
Offensive, go mounted twin flamer SoB squads, and Flamer Immos for support. Flamer Seraphim will help also. The problem I can possibly see with the aggressive attack, is the chance they get into CC.
Defensively, you can go with HBolter Immos with Blessed Ammo. It can shoot 36" and ignore cover. couple them with a few Retribution squads, and you're throwing a lot tof HBolter shots he's going to have to come take care of.
Rhinos with a Pintle-mounted stormbolter and Blessed ammo are pesky to Kroot as well.
Use your HFlamer / flamer mounted SoB squads as counter-assault squads, moving them out from behind cover and placing them to counter the Kroot advance. Krootox might be a problem, but ample HBolter fire should take care of it. Or an allied DH Inq. with Psycannon, and a Plas cannon, twin Hbolter retinue should clean them up. It might not be a bad Idea to have a WH Inq. Lord with a Leiber Heresius. Since you can neuter Kroot by denying them their precious woodland cover saves, Setup can be critical too.
I was trying to base my army around on that fought kroot alot, not necessarily was fighting them in a battle...
Im still trying to decide if I'm going to use the st Celestine model as an inquisitor, or as a normal heroine, what do u think? both ways i believe it needs some converting... And if i was to use it as an inquisitor id give her the power scourging. Is this a good idea or what?
Think im going to have an all female army, but with the only male models to be in the inquisitors retinue if i was going to get her... Kinda like Major pane.
'Violence against women Australia says no'. I think i might have to say that every time someones rolling to wound on my models, hahahaha could work aye...
