Welcome to Librarium Online!
Sorry if this is in the wrong place but I can't find a good place to put this. Is it legal to use a army list represented by other models, like if I use catachans to the kroot army list backed by fluff is that legal.
No this is not legal in tournaments. The vast majority of them won't allow it under what you see is what you get rules.
Now if you and your friends want to do it in a friendly game, that's completely fine. Most people in most stores will also let you do it in friendly games.
Ask yourself why in the world would you trust a win loss record? Playing them yourself is the only way to tell.
The true joy in the game is playing down to the last model, no matter the odds.
Yeah, with RTT's being official and everything, they won't let you. But your friends might let you proxy, or make one thing count as another.:yes:
If terrorists ask you "Do you have a bullet through your head?" say proudly, with dignity, "No, I do not. Go fish."

If you use the models with a different army list, you better have a _very_ good fluff reason to explain it. Otherwise use the standard Catachan army list but attempt to keep the spirit of the Kroot army list, if you like.
Regimental Doctrines might be another idea here.
Using uncoverted models in a completely different army list would be difficult to get away with. It would be too jarring. But you are supposedly allowed to use converted GW models in a "counts as" fashion in virtually any army list. Legally.
I mean, I can't just plunk my Skaven models on round bases and call them Grey Knights. But if I put rat-men in futuristic-looking heavy armor and gave them some wicked weaponry, well, that'd be all right.
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.
