Well when kroot assault do they count as having 2 ccw? I ask this because there is a person at the local store that says kroot are INSANE in assault because they each get 3 attacks on the charge.
Yeah, they get 3 on the charge. They get one extra from the kroot rifles and then the charge gives them one other.
I don't really like to rely on them in cc though. My strategy is more "all or nothin," if I don't kill the enemy before they get into cc then I just die. It sounds reckless but I've managed it well so far.
Wow thats really cool now I have some use for them ...
true, the kroot get 3 attacks each, but unless u pay for it, they don't have an armour save, and against any sort of fire power, they go down hard
Well, the armoursave doesn't cost that much and it is worth it, because it can save some valuable lives. also the kroot hound gets 3 attack when assaulting, so kroot are really good at it.
--for the greater good--
Sit the kroot behind the firewarriors. That way they are shielded from any fire and still get to shoot back (unless the other guy charges 18 which seems to be getting more common every day). Once the warriors are hit in CC they should be all but analated. Then Move the kroot up and charge getting as much as possible into CC. The counter charge will kill anything short of a dread or wraithlord. Trust me. The initiative 3 hurts but you get SO MANY ATTACKS that some go through. Even marines fall to that kind of numbers.
One note. Death company squads with more than 6-7 guys will slaughter you with their two saves. SHOOT THEM FIRST.
