hi there, im playing a game tonight against a guy that fields an all kroot force. I've never had to face kroot before and i was wondering if there was anything nasty about them or anything i need to watch out for. I know they have a lot of numbers so i think my 4 heavy bolter dev squad may come in handy
kroot have loads of special rules when they are in a forest.
theya re more than decent in hth but lack powerweapons and have no real armour save. They can move through cover unhindered and they can see up to 12'' when stationary. and IIRC their cover save in forests is increased as well
You should expect loads of troops and forests.
So you can set up an army accordingly:
get flamers. loads of flamers
get template weapons. lots of them. Whirlwinds are good too, because they don't need LOS.
some Close Combat scouts might work, because they are fast through cover, too. Assault marines on foot or Close Combat veterans might work also.
Get some Tanks. A predator Annihilator (the one with the autocannon and bolters) will work nicely.
Shut up and play.
I'll just be dusting off my 4 plasma cannon dev squad then just incase. I think they can infiltrate (not sure) would it be worthwhile stocking up on a few auspex's get a few rounds into them before they start?
please remember that with the new rules he can set up infiltrators within 12'' if you can't draw a LOS. and if they are inside a wood they can shoot at you but cannot even see them. so you probably won't be able to draw a line of sight to them. so I guess it is not really necessary to ahve auspexes. but I guess that depends a little bit on the way your table is set up.Originally posted by sharkimus@Nov 15 2004, 07:32

but then again, they only cost 2 points apiece and if you have the characters and the points left over go for it.
Shut up and play.
don't go for PC in this case HB are your best friend
Think along similar lines as nids with more shooting and less big dudes. HB's are your friend. A LRC would just be overkill.
man this doesnt sound like me i noramly say plasma them to death but oh well.
go for (in devs)
one plasma cannon
two heavy bolters
lots of flamers will own
template wepons rock
pray to the dice gods and i sure you will be fine
message me and tell me how it goes
Just be warned they will probabally have CC the first round with lots of guys. Before you shoot most likely.
Odly enough termies and assult squads will be your saving friend.
try and shoot em up. termies will kill em though, what with the 2+ save all the time.
