I have always wondered if kroot skin colour varies. The most common seen is the brown/light brown but I am wondering if you can get white, red or other colour kroot. I am wondering this after seeing the army painter in dawn of war and the kroot for various septs had different colours. Perhaps you could justify the colouring by what the shapers tell them to eat and led to some odd colouring.
It does very, from what I read from the last tau codex concerning the kroot they can almost literally "will" whatever coloration they wish over time.
Which can give you almost complete free reign to paint them as you wish.
Mine are black have a green beak gun-metal rifles, and red tips on most sharp points, eyes, and their armor.
Support you right to play video games, its for the greater good...
I always just assumed that there would be an almost unlimited variety of Kroot skin colours just because of the way they work. Ingesting DNA and adapting to the local environment, to my mind at least, would also mean adapting camouflage and colouring.
I imagine the decorative crests they sport would be a good area to use some interesting colours as well.
Isn't there something about Kroot using body paint as well, or am I getting my wires crossed with that one? Maybe it was just some models I saw somewhere...
My Kroot are all Jamaicans.

Yeah there is a limitless number of colours for kroot colour ones I’ve seen that were cool were.
A blue grey white for a snow based tau army.
All red don’t know why they looked like that.
Full on green and brown camo colours.
And mine when I get around to doing tau will be green and brown as I will be using what is called aus cam for my tau army for those who don’t know aus cam is what the Australian army wears within Australia.
But really any colour that looks striking or any colour that looks like it would camouflage them would work.
