Welcome to Librarium Online!
I want to start a tau army out of the new codex. But i want it playable in RTTs. My thought is going to be Kroot based though. The Kroot will replace the FW with the conversions some of the armour and the weapons. same with the drivers of vehicles. Some will just be head and some parts of the hands or feet. but basically it will be kroot filling the positions of the FW and such. How will this play in to that pain of a rule WYSIWYG. Please help!
Cool idea but I don't think it will prove you any good and it is rather unfluffy IMO. The Tau would never let kroots drive their vehicles it is only air castle who does that.
But to answer your question, well your vehicles will have to take terrain test each round, since kroots aren't trained to fly them.
Your kroots will have a 4+ save and better weapons (except if they gets into cc) but in general it won't work
Really in the way of the vehicles it still wont be the Kroot driving them but the Kroot will have a gun to the heads of the pilots. In terms of a hostile take over. In game terms they will fuction as the Tau the are taking hostage of. Such a the leader of each FW squad will have a kroot with him holding a knife to his neck to give an example.Originally Posted by Arakiaz
Sorry to not comment on the topic, but what does WYSIWYG have to do with 40k? Isn't that What You See Is What You Get basic editor? @_@

No real comments then. Well I guess I can still do it anyway and hope the WYSIWYG folks out there understand the conversions and theme of the army. Thanks for the help Salmon Thief and Arakiaz you guys were very HELPFUL with your thoughts.Originally Posted by The Salmon Thief
WYSIWYG is about properly representing the equipment and weapons that the model carries -it has NOTHING to do with wacky conversions like Kroot piloting Crisis Suits.
So long as you're PLAYING it as a normal Tau army and that much is at least obvious to your opponents, you can make it look like whatever the frag you want and it's legal.

Thak you that was the answer I was looking for not the other two I got. Good day Strylight and thanks again.Originally Posted by Straylight
I didn't say that you couldn't do it. I was just saying that the Empire won't let a kroot ride their suits, and I really don't think that the kroots are capable of doing so, but I like the idea and have actually tried to convert a kroot on an eldar jetbike and so, I also like the idea of planting a kroot (probably shaper) behind the team leader with a knife to his neck.
