    I know one guy who uses kroot in his eldar army, it adds a definate fluffy feel to the army that all can sense when they just look at the battlefield. there's nothing like seeing 2 different races fighting as one to add a feeling of character to an army.

    I wouldn't see a problem with adding Kroot to your army but fluff wise, I would think that Iyanden would make the most use of them since A) they are in the Eastern Fringe and they have horrible numbers for troops.

    and C) they need more bodies that aren't their valuable eldar

    I have seen Kroot mercs used really well for Alaitoc, gives them assult options for a sniper force that still fits with the hunter feel, it would be fluffy for iyanden due to their low numbers to use mercs, but Beil tan? the sword wind is about its warlike people, if it need extra boddies they would use guardians.

    However, noone is gonna complain so do it if you feel like it

    Basically, if your talking about combat effectiveness, it depends on what you want to tank, as you can take pretty much anything from the Kroot Merc. list.

    Fluffwise, Its your army, do what you want wether of not it fits fluff! It is YOUR army army after all!

    I don't know if you can use your allied troops as your compulsory ones, but if you could, then don't take any guardians if you don't want to. Say that the eldar wish to minimize the eldar casualties and are therefore, not using civilians for combat.
    Dreams give us a vision of a world unlike any we have seen. They present us with a glimpse of a better life; a goal to aspire to, and in the face of insurmountable odds, they provide us with the power to overcome, to live on, and to succeed where we would have otherwise failed.

    In a normal Biel-Tan army i wouldn't say it was very fluffy, since Biel-Tan is not really known for it's open mind against other races. But since you play the White Dragon craftworld it should be no problem, at least if the craftworld is around the eastern fringe.

    Game-wise it might be a good replacement of Guardians, infiltrating and longer range weapons. They'll add some numbers in CC too, if they get there alive.
