Welcome to Librarium Online!
I searched and couldn't find anything so...
What do people use to model Kroot Hounds? I mean, alot of us use them but they are $10 each!!! Is there some other model, maybe something from Warhammer Fantasy that looks pretty good and is cheaper?
-Thread Killer Bryan
Tyranid Hive Fleet Typhoeus
T'au Empire, Bork'an Sept
I haven't seen or hear anything about alternative cheap models, and from the lack of responses I am going to guess that most others haven't either. Go ask the modelling guys, or be the first to find the alternative.
Turtles For the Turtle God!
Shells For the Shell Throne!
I could've sworn there was another thread about this... did you just search the Tau forum, or did you check Conversion/Modeling as well?
Anyways, here's a random idea:
Kroot Carnivore head. Tyranid Gaunt body. File off most of the spikeys and whatnot, cut off the tail 'cept for maybe a stub. Lots of GS.
Cheaper, but more work involved.... with some imagination it could work.
