Welcome to Librarium Online!
With the Tau codex out many of the Kroot Merc units become outdated, does anyone know if they are going to redo theKroot Merc codex?
I don't think that Kroot have their first priority, but I agree with you that the kroots have been outdated in the new Tau codex. I actually posted a tread in here some ago saying the same.
The major thing that they have been outdated on is that kroots in Tau armies no longer have "eaters of the dead" rule (or whatever it was called).
But I really wants kroot mercs to have it since it is very fluffy for them to have. Mostly because of the signature adaptions, which they receive for eating their enemies through many generations. Second because I like the idea of there being a difference between the kroots in a Tau army and the ones that lives wild. The ones in the Tau armies could very well have been breed inside the Tau army and therefor being raised to not eat their fallen enemies.
I'm fully aware of the fact that the "eaters of the dead" rule is a major drawback to the kroots and I have many times seen my kroots being shot to pieces while eating dead guardsmen after they have forced them to fleet after first round of cc
As soon as they come out with the chapter approved 2007, we will feel the new codex updates, and probably some more item selection and units.
I would really like that, but I just hoping that they will keep their eater rule for the fluff, but I would really like new units and items, we really need that, perhaps some anti-tank stuffOriginally Posted by Wolf_Pack
