Kroot Carnivores

Although I find Kroot to be pretty ineffective at fulfilling their roll as the Tau “close combat” unit, I still use them because I like their models and they are cheap, outflanking troops. Generally my strategy is to leave them in reserve and have them outflank with the hopes of siting on an objective. Ideally, an objective in cover. If the cover is trees, that’s even better, as that’s about the only time these guys are any good (3+ cover save in woods only). Then I just sit and wait, shooting anything in range, hoping nothing comes near with a flamer. I love the Krootox model, although again, it’s not very good… Hopefully these guys will get some love in the next edition of the Tau codex.
