i have reciently decided to add kroot to my tau armys but i really dont like the kroot models, do you think it would be acceptable, in tournaments, to use Lizardmen Saurus Warriors or Skink Skirmishers as alternative models with kroot rules and stats?
You'd definitely have to discuss that with those running the tournament. On top of that, due to WYSIWYG, you'd have to get a kroot rifle into the hands of your Saurus/Skinks. So long as the rifle was there, I doubt many would have a problem with the idea.
*raises hand* Errr why don't you like the kroot models? I think they're pretty neat....most of all the hounds....
im not really sure its just something about them that looks off, maby the fact they are taller then tau models. they seem to draw atention away from my tau, becasu they stand taller. but the skinks are short, like tau and i like being diffrent, not to many people play lizardmen kroot.
Kroot are taller than Tau.
Average Tau male (and presumably female, with given fluff): 5ft
Average Kroot Male: 6.5-7 ft. Kroot are damn tall. Taller than the average human. Probably as tall as a space marine...
and they should be too, as they'll need the extra leg height for speed, and should be heavier weight for CC.
and c'mon, who doesnt like the quills!!!
i know they are taller in the fluff, though a 4 foot tall tau is as tall as a 6-7 foot tall SM when set on table top, but the kroot are taller then both models. and yes u gota love the quils, but im liking the scales better, plus no one else has little lizards running around the table in 40K. any way i got one of the skink kroot put together and painted up, if i ever figure out how to post a pic ill have to put some up
I thought fire caste Tau were generally the size of normal humans... :huh:
for my kroot I just grab some orks from my ork army since it sort of fits the stat line. But that is for friendly games, which I only play anyway, if you want to use proxy models in a tournament like someone said before you should ask the organizers.
on the subject of height, you got to feel sorry for the firewarriors, thier rifle is just as big as they are. The whole situation sounds pretty familiar to the japanese in WWII who had a rifle that was 5 feet something and the average japanese soldier was around 5'2" I think.

What is there to be sorry about? What could be cooler then a rifle the same size as you? Tau Fire Warriors don't need to be big, they're smart enough to make big weapons instead. Gotta love those models =)
