Welcome to Librarium Online!
well i play tau and hate using kroot with my list, well i cant say i hate if ive never tried, but they just dont appeal to me..
anyway i have these kroot left over from two battle forces, and i was sitting, staring at my bits box, and i have ALL of these kroot guys... went and got the mercs list and checked it out.
i quite like the character of the kroot after abit of light reading. and i dont really want a list, im more interested in converting subspecies of kroot. ill get some knarloc riders, and a great knarloc off forge world, and now i want like a little kindred thing diorama, its quite abig project for me, but for the short run it would be cool just to do some conversians. SO, here it is....
have you guys got any ideas for completely original subspecies of kroot, nothing that builds on the kroot guys, i want another "dead end" species.
i was thinking like a full on kroot hawk, like the one mentioned in that letter in the tau codex. but you know, im not the kroot expert, so any ideas?
there are currently no other dead end species other than krootox and kroot hound, but the possibilities are without numbers really.
the Hawk is a good Idea, and so would be the stalking kroot nearly a lictor, of the kroot stealer, with multiple arms nd vicious feeder tendrils.
Just looking around the minis any see what traits you use to make a very specific deadend, and you don't need to stop to a single model, there is a whole range of miniatures out there
The Funniest would be the Necron-Kroot, with a Will Be Back roll, or Kroot Rippers!
Kroot hawks sounds cool. Maybe some kind of cross breed with a large tyranid? The posiblitys are endless....

haha eat necrons???? end up with some weird organic metal substance.. metal bones like wolverine...
i guess i meant more primative kroot versians, like the dead ends that were created by primative kroot, then those creatures evolved naturally. id say thats what happened to knarlocs and great knarlocs..
anyway, im gunna look through fantasy and stuff see what i can turn up
Well dead end mutations is what prevents kroot from abusing from thier genetic absorbsion ability.
Gnarlocs are suposed to the another type of creature, but they strangely resemble kroot, maybe another GW screw up
