PostSubject: trying some kroot!   Mon Mar 10, 2008 10:15 am

ok well i have also been thinking about taking on a 3rd project this summer.. one being windrider eldar, another being a necron tomb guard. the 3rd could, quite possibly, be a kroot mercenary army. Here is a 1500 point list for you guys to sink your teeth into.

Master Shaper 5 eviscerator attacks on the charge, 4+ invuln, wings, re-roll first turn
3 shapers S4, power weapons, melta guns, wings

20 carnivores, shaper, eviscerator, blood of the stalker (infiltrate d6" closer)
10 carnivores, shaper, eviscerator, blood of the stalker

11 vultures, shaper, frags, pistol, eviscerator (all have wings, infiltrate)
11 hounds
10 kroot, shaper, frags, fleet, blood of the stalker, eviscerator, surefoot charm (2 dice pick highest for fleet)

12 hunters (snipers), shaper, storm bolter, power weapon, auspex

12 headhunters, shaper, frags, fleet, blood of the stalker, eviscerator, surefoot charm (2 dice pick highest for fleet)
the headhunters can choose to make 1 attack a piece that wounds anything on 4+.. for high T guys.

1500 pts.. 90 models give or take with the changes
all at either +1 initiative or 6+ cover even when not in cover

so this list looks just fun as hell. could probably build it for around 250 bucks all brand new stuff. honestly it would just be for fun, though it can be extremely competitive. whoever wins, the battles are quick!

Why did you stop at 1500? I'd go ahead and add the 250 pts cause that's what we all play with most often.

Looks like a decent Merc list. But i don't think it's wise to do a merc list... they will probably kill it once 5th hits.

Or you will be stuck waiting for half a decade until they get around to bringing out a new one.

Locally I haven't seen many Kroot with most Tau players. So hearing someone talk about the all Kroot Mercenary list sounds interesting. For their stats these guys can be very good when played right.

Aside in Apololypse some there are some items that at least says Kroot won't just be drooped. Probably ignored, but not kacked like the stunties.

The Kroot won't be, but I doubt their list will be updated this side of the next Cicada attack.

I have to agree with Matt that a Kroot Merc army will probably get the nerf, but if your ok so am I.

If you look are a few years back there was Kroot Merc army that won best painted, I think, at the Baltimore GT. His list was competive. I saw it once at a RTT in N. Carolina (maybe Penn. cant remember). The army will win big against static gun lines, but will loose big to almost every assault army.

His list I remember took advantage of everything being able to assault on turn 2. There where a lot of kroot with wings.
