    My friend has just started Tau and he is asking me if he should use Kroot in his 1000 point army, obviously I dont know because I have Blood Angels and Eldar, so im hoping to get my friend a little betteR. So the question here is "Should he use Kroot Carnivores, Kroot hounds, and krootox's in 700-1000 point battles vs space marine armies(chapters)." Please reply thanks

    He should use Kroot under two circumstances:

    A) If there's a lot of cover planned for the table,

    or

    If he enjoys taking his pieces off the board shot and chopped into little bitty pieces by superior troops.

    Kroot, in signifigantly huge numbers, can hold their own against smaller forces of the weaker hth troops. Against Blood Angels? Neh eh. Mind you, it of course depends on the troop load out of his enemy. Without knowing anything other than the fact that it's Tau v. Space Monkeys, it's impossible to say whether or not Kroot are a good idea.

    Number 1) Krootox's are never ever a good choice, never.
    Number 2) In a thousand point game, you probably arent going to have enough points to really fill out a kroot troop choice to the 16 or so you might need.
    Number 3) If there is a forest, then yeah, plop the kroot down on the game, if you can inflitrate the Kroot into the forrest you have a very tough nut to crack for your opponent, unless he has flamers.

    i almost always take big squads of kroot in small games for a number of reasons:

    1. they can infiltrate
    2. a squad of 20 is very intimidating and draws a lot of fire
    3. with the new 2" CC rule they are even better in CC
    4. rapid firing from 12" inside a forest
