    I think it would be kool if the kroot were given some kinda calvary, like riding hounds. And when charging they can nock opponent to the ground so its kinda like pinning for close combat.

    yea i also think they need better cavalry. it&#39;ll be like riding horsed but the horses can attack also. that could be a rule.

    plus i would really like to see kroot chariots.

    So many new ideas people have seem a perfect fit for the kroot ox to me.

    The cavalry rules are already perfect for the oxen. It lumbers along at 6" per turn, but it can be whipped into a fury for the extra 12" charge.

    Thats a good idea give the ox a calvary unit, and make the carnivore squad have the option to take one and not let it take a heavy support choice kinda like a sm attack bike and then allow people to take herd of like 4 for a heavy support choice.

    in the Kroot Mercenaries army list in The Third Book of the Astronomican, they have Tracker Kindred as fast attack, basically carnivores riding lesser knarlocs, wielding Kroot Hunting Rifles. What&#39;s wierd is that the followind armies may NOT use kroot mercenaries: Space Marines, Necrons, Sisters of Battle, Tyranids and TAU (*****&#33;11)
    WHAT THE *****&#33;&#33;&#33; WHY CANT DOES IT REPLACE h t t p : / / g r o u p s . m s n. c o m / with {Ads-Protection}?&#33;?&#33;&#33;?&#33;?&#33;?&#33; GNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

    Forgeworld sells the gnarloc thingies, so I&#39;ll bet you could make your own easily enough if forgeworld doesn&#39;t actually sell kroot riders to go with.

    That is kinda funky that the Tau can&#39;t use those modified kroot, I guess it&#39;s just because the Tau already have rules for the Kroot, and they don&#39;t want the Tau to have the advantages that the Kroot mercenary army has. Why they don&#39;t want that for the Tau, I dunno, if the Kroot mercs are fair for other armies then they seem fair for the Tau, but whatever...

    take a cold one from WFB, then cut of the arms, and use a krootox&#39; head, seal with greenstuff.

    The Tau don&#39;t get to use mercenary kroot because the kroot mercs represent the kroot that disobey the Tau in order to gain more genetic sources.
