These monstrous avatars inspire courage in nearby Kroot warriors, and terror in the enemy. If you want to get crazy there could be all sorts of strange kroot from flying ones to the big dumb animals.
Oaka A quick little project that yielded an excellent Kroot-themed counter so I can keep track of my available Command Points My point army gets 12 of them. Only one of this model may be included in your army. Some kids you really liked, some were kind of iffy Go with the Incubus. I’m happy with them, other than the fact that you can probably steal my identity from the thumbprints in the legs, but it’s still difficult to tell how it will all look when it comes together.
I think I have the head ready to paint, as well, and will work on that some more. My plan on that is to pick up some rough modelling putty in order to build up the back until I get it in the shape I want for the howdah to fit on it. Since taking these pictures, I’ve bored out the barrels and added some accessories. I’m not a sculptor, but was able to make several hands with different lengths of putty as the fingers and a simple fingernail shape with a sculpting tool at the end of each finger.
Most people will let you use it in a friendly game. After this, the Kroot reveals that this was a secret test of character, but also that it was coedx for shits and giggles. Now without transports, foot Wyches krpot not last long, so the lists I’ve had some success with include a small unit of 2 Khymerae to go with each Wych unit Khymerae represented by Kroot Hounds and by using Ynnari rules. Please note, for those krpot you who play Chaos Daemons as a faction the term “Daemon” ocdex potentially offensive.
My goal was to adequately copy the Forgeworld mounted Great Knarloc so the unit looked coherent together. On athat unit suffers D3 mortal wounds.
The next couple of weeks should see some new models finished. Love what You’re doing with the kroots I always liked them. I’m envisioning the model to krooot a larger-scaled version of the Kroot Bird: Look forward to seeing what esle you come up with. It’s also a little too much Tau, especially when looking at it from the front.
But there next ones might be good.
The model was separated into many pieces, which was great cocex I was most interested in duplicating the head and the bow. The majority of my army is then fun Character units, so there is nothing else to shoot at except these basic units.
Of course, now we have a new edition to play, but I like these models and will certainly find a way to squeeze them into my army lists. Oaka I’ve picked up some gorgeous third party sculpts from Zealot Miniatures of three dynamic Kroot hounds.
Rawson – click to view full reply. Oaka I had been using them as Dark Eldar, and while I will miss having Talos’, I think adding all the psykers to the list as well as the Soulburst mechanic will make the army more interesting to play.

For what it’s worth. The model size is also equivalent to that of the GW Kroot models, a head swap looks great and so does the bow. I’d rather it be an Auxiliary Book or a “Allies of the Xenos Empires” book that has a smattering of the weird “will never get a full codex and doesn’t need one” Codec stuff in one. I chose to use this model because it has 5 heads to represent the 5 attacks and 5 wounds of the Razorwing Flock, krooot all look amazingly similar to a Kroot Hound head.
Despite all this, however, their patrons in the T’au remain unaware or unphased by the nature of The Warp, which probably speaks more to the Greater Good’s “make other cultures like we are and absorb nothing” philosophy rather than a taciturn quality of the korot.
In that time I have added a slew of Forgeworld models, and genuinely had a great experience converting, painting, and playing the army as Kroot Mercenaries.
SickSix Love this army! Since I imagine this project will take a while, I think it might be a good idea to wait for the imminent release of the Ork Codex.
Kkroot always great seeing Kroot armies, and you did a great job on them. I see a couple vacation days off work and some long nights ahead. Coedx the battle, roll on the table to see which aspect the unit has. I’d be inclined to do something a bit more spirit rather than zombie-like and paint them in monochrome, perhaps like LOTR army of the dead: I’m also looking forward to the rumors of new Kroot models in the near future.
The Kroot first appeared as a playable race in late ; the result of Games Workshop’s plan to introduce a new race to the game . Check it out and let me know what you think! There’s quite kroot bit of potential with the model, any preliminary suggestions? The mounted Great Knarloc, however, is a fantastic unit.
Oaka I won’t have it done before the tournament tomorrow, but here is the WIP on the body. And as we all know, GW would kroo just make reams of unnecessary Coded Marine variant codices than give an update to a faction who actually needs it. Perhaps the best part about it was that these two models took all of the opposing shots, allowing three Talos’ to make it across the board unscathed behind a unit of beasts.
Please keep us updated on your campaign! These were released as sets of three and limited to sets, and I was lucky enough to snag several sets but I’m sure after painting a few of them I’ll move onto a different idea. Oaka Not really an update to the Dark Eldar counts-as list, but thought I would post a pic of a model I thought was lost and buried until it finally reemerged during some basement cleaning. No adverts like this in the forums anymore.
If that limit were removed I’d likely cave for Farsight at least since I like the character so much.
