    I kinda like the kroot idea, I guess I am the underdog army type of guy. The two compliment each other very well - Kroot infiltrate and tie up the enemy while the DE rush in to mop up.

    Cant really explain it in fluff but in battle it heard it works well.

    Please continue your evaluation, I would like to hear more.

    I am not a fan of mixing armies that have nothing in common, It could be good idea tactical wise but I stay loyal to DE and only relly on units of its society. But thats just me. The kroot are sweet though, reallynice in CC while warriors could tie the enemy from the distance.

    exactly, and another good thing is that they dont cost much for large numbers, use em for meat shields ne thing u want since their mercs, might even bring fire power into a close combat fight if u want them for that. An exelent screen for your raiders (No raider casualties) thats something u dont see often

    hrm... That's a pretty good Idea...

    forcing the opposing player to attack the closer, but less dangerous kroot, who have the ability to hold in place vital squads, and tie up shooty units, and thus allowing your precious precious wyches to get into CC that much less unscathed.

    one issue I may have, is that a canny player would use small arms against the kroot, and still have the ability to take down the raiders; which is the aim in the first turn anyway....

    They are pretty cool IMO.

    Goes well in character for DE to employ mercenaries.

    Infiltrating is a nice little thing as well.

    Then servering as a relief painting the army as well without having to buy a new army.

    Cheers dancey

    it works well with any type of army, especialy a WWp army which i have noticed seems to be possible, since kroot are better than warp beasts and come in larger numbers as well. plus kroot look cool if u paint em right.

    Kroot Mercs are much more effective than people think. A tooled up squad costs as much as a Wytch Raider squad but can often get a 1st turn assault. (infiltrate 1d6" closer than normal, ignore difficult terrain from forests, fleet of foot).
    I regularly play against an Ork/DE player who always uses Kroot Mercs. His merc squad is a Shaper with an eviscerator, 8 hounds and 8 kroot. About 40% of the time he can pull off a 1st turn assault. And if the Shaper gets anywhere near a vehicle it's dead.
    Basically if I don't thrown alot of fire at it them the Kroot will always get a second turn charge and they aren't total pushovers in CC either. So all the fire I'm sendning at the Kroot are not being used against his raiders or trukks.
