Welcome to Librarium Online!
I am a brand new Tau player, and I must say the new codex is pretty sweet! I am just starting out and I have a question about the kroot, in the war gear section under the Kroot Rifle, it states that the it counts as an addtional close combat weapon, does this mean that the kroot have +1 A? I thank you for you help, and I am looking forward to my first battle with the Tau! thanks! :yes:
that is exactly what it means. have fun with TAU! and if nobody has told you yet, welcome to LO!
As a piece of friendly advice, often the question you bring up will have been asked and answered before, it's not hard to look up one of these previous threads instead of creating a whole new topic.

You get the idea.
yep but as it's here anyway maybe we could turn this into a more general what do you think of kroot thread?

Well, I think that kroot are very usefull as a complement to ordinary fire warriors or battlesuits, they are WAY better than anything else that Tau has (also in terms of pointcost). They can infiltrate and sneak up on your enemies flanks or make it harder for him to reach your FW without entering CC.....because that is what playing against Tau is all about. Getting into CC with them....as soon as this is done, they are doomed.
the way that i see, kroot are meant to die in a battle. put them into 7inches of forest so they can shoot out and not be shot, then wen an enemy comes, run out, shoot them, then charge so u get 3 attacks for a unit of 20 kroot O_o. then when they start dying, get a unit of FW or crisis waiting to kill the enemy as soon as the last kroot falls, or runs.
i need to find something interesting to put here
Ok Scotty, jokes over... NOW BEAM UP MY CLOTHES!
Addoran just told you people to use the search function.
