A codex created to let you craft an army exclusively out of Kroot units! Enjoy your murderous chickens!

Army Rules[edit]

Universal[edit]

  • Alien Mercenaries: The kroot's purpose is to hunt, and they'll take part in any sort of conflict to follow their sacred arts and money.
Kroot detachments may be taken in any army even if they don't possess any common faction keyword.
  • Feral Hunters: The kroots are a race of masterful hunters; swift they run across their hunting grounds, chasing down their prey with no hesitation.
Kroot units can charge even if they Advanced or Fell Back during their turn.

Detachment Rules[edit]

  • Evolutionary Traits: The Kroots are known for acquiring the traits of their fallen victims by a ritual of carefully selecting the various genes. Because of this, the various bands of hunters scattered across the galaxy can become quite different from the others, all due to the variety of preys they fest upon in their hunting grounds.
If your army is Battle-forged, all Kroot units gain an Evolutionary Trait. All units in the same detachment must have the same Evolutionary Trait.
  • Expert Hunters: An hunter knows how important it is to hold a position. Once hidden in the surroundings of a focal point, it will take a great amount of strength to make them move.
If your army is Battle-forged, all Troops units in Kroots Detachments gain this ability. Such a unit that is within range of an objective marker (as specified in the mission) controls the objective marker even if there are more enemy models within range of that objective marker. If an enemy unit within range of the same objective marker has a similar ability, then the objective marker is controlled by the player who has the most models within range of it as normal.

Evolutionary Traits[edit]

To create the Evolutionary Trait of a Kroot detachment, select two rules from the following list:

  • Aerodynamic Plumage: Some Kroot grow feathers which hold a layer of air to their surface, reducing drag by their air resistance being air on air instead of air on skin. Not that their enemies have time to appreciate this as they’re being brutally charged down.
Units with this trait can re-roll their advance and charge distances.
  • Camouflage Skin: Colour and texture changing hairs and feathers make very flexible and effective camouflage in all environments, making hitting these kroots virtually impossible.
If a unit with this trait is receiving the benefit of cover, add 2 to its saving throws instead of 1.
  • Dense Muscular Tissue: Strong muscles make not only for a great offence but a formidable defence too.
Add 1 to the strength characteristic of unit with this trait. In addition, roll a die each time a unit with this trait suffers a wound, on a 6 that wound is ignored. If the unit is a Cavalry or Monster, the effect takes place on a roll of 5+ instead.
  • Hardened Carapace: Thick armoured platings render the surface of these warriors hard as cheramite, at the cost of slower movements.
Subtract 2" from the Movement characteristic of units with this trait but consider their armour save as 1 point better. This trait may not be taken alongside Hollow Bones.
  • Hollow Bones: At the cost of a minor defence, these hollow bones grant the holder a much more useful velocity and manoeuvrability.
Add 4" to the Movement characteristic of units with this trait but subtract 1 from their Toughness characteristic. This trait may not be taken alongside Hardened Carapace.
  • Hyper Senses: The kroots of this pack have developed such high senses that it's almost impossible to take them by surprise.'
Units with this trait can't suffer penalties to their hit rolls when firing a ranged weapon in the Shooting phase, regardless of any modifiers and may always fire Overwatch, regardless of any special rules.
  • Nocturnal Eyes: Wide retinas and light-reflective structures make the eyes of these predators ideal to stalk their prey in dark environment.
Units with this trait don't suffer penalties to their hit rolls as a result of special rules such as Night Fighting or Dawn Raid.
  • Overdeveloped Intelligence: Even rudimentary weapons, if held by expert individuals, can become lethal instruments of destructions.
Consider the Ap characteristic of weapons from units with this trait as 1 point better.
  • Regenerative Limbs: x
On a roll of 5+, units with this trait regain 1 previously lost wound at the start of each of your turns.
  • Sharp Spikes: The characteristic spike of the kroots can grow and harden to the point of piercing the thickest of armours.
At the end of the Fighting phase, roll a die for each model in a unit with this trait that is within 1" of an enemy unit. On a 5+ one enemy model within 1" suffers a mortal wound.

Stratagems[edit]

  • DNA Assimilation (2 CP): The Kroot are able to assimilate the genetic code of their fallen preys, become stronger or more agile as the situation commands.
Use this Stratagem when a friendly KROOT unit kills the last model of an enemy unit during the Fight phase. Depending on the faction keyword of that unit, randomly select one effect from the relative list, the effect immediately takes place and lasts until the end of the game. If a KROOT Shaper is within 6" of that unit, do not roll a die, simply choose the desired effect and apply it to both units.
-Aeldari:
  • Fragile Bones: This unit suffers a penalty of 1 to its Toughness characteristic.
  • Swift Figure: This unit can advance and fire with Assault and Rapid Fire weapons as if it remained stationary during its Movement phase.
-Imperium:
  • Fearless Devotion: Roll a die each time this unit suffers a wound, on a 6+ that wound is ignored.
  • Zelotry: This unit is unaffected by the aura abilities of any friendly units.
-Orks:
  • Simple-minded: This unit suffers a penalty of 2 to its hit rolls.
  • Strong Muscles: Add 1 to this unit's Strength characteristic.
-T'au Empire:
  • Pheromone Control: While this unit is within 6" of a KROOT character with the same ability, this unit automatically passes all Leadership and Morale tests.
  • Weak Figure: This unit suffers a penalty of 1 to its Toughness characteristic.
-Tyranids:
  • Feral Behaviour: This unit must fire at the closes unit (even if friendly) and must advance closer to and charge the nearest unit (even if friendly)
  • Multi-limbed: Add 2 to this unit's Attacks characteristic.
  • Hidden Hunters (1 CP): The Kroot are experts in camouflage and concealment, and utilise cover in ways most would never consider.
Use this Stratagem at the start of your opponent’s Shooting phase. Select one KROOT unit from your army. Until the end of that phase, when resolving an attack made with a ranged weapon against that unit whilst it is receiving the benefit of cover, subtract 1 from the hit roll and add 1 to the saving throw.
  • Hunting Grounds (1 CP): The Kroot unleash their razor-beaked hounds and a tide of mottled green flesh tears into the enemy ranks.
Use this Stratagem when a Kroot Hound unit from your army completes a charge against an enemy unit. Until the end of the phase, you can re-roll failed charge rolls for other friendly KROOT units that are within 12" of that Kroot Hound unit after it completes its charge move.
  • Packalpha (1 CP): Some Kroot Shapers earn dominance over their kin through fierce contests or spectacular hunting feats.
Use this Stratagem before the battle. Select one KROOT SHAPER model from your army. Until the end of the battle, when making an Advance roll or charge roll for a friendly KROOT unit within 6" of that model, roll one additional D6 and discard one of the dice.
  • Raging Beasts (1 CP): Krootox have immense physical strength, and their riders know how to coax them into a terrible rage.
Use this Stratagem when a KROOTOX RIDER unit from your army is chosen to fight with in the Fight phase. Until the end of that phase, models in that unit have an Attacks characteristic of 4. In addition, until the end of that phase, the Armour Penetration characteristic of krootox fists models in that unit are equipped with is improved by 2 (e.g. AP 0 becomes AP -2).

Warlord Traits[edit]

  • 1: Trap Expert: This strategic leader has set numerous traps across the battlefield so that its enemies may suffer when most distracted.
Once per battle, at the end of your opponent's Movement phase, you can choose up to three enemy units on the battlefield and roll a D6. Subtract 1 from the result if the unit is a Character but add 1 if the unit contains 10 or more models. On a 4+ that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds; on a 7+ it suffers D6 mortal wounds instead.
  • 2: Leader of the Pack: This Kroot guides its brethren in the midst of battle with skill and precision. If one of its kindred were to run away, it would be its duty to consume them so their spirits may partake in the war as one.
Each time a friendly Kroot unit within 6" of your Warlord fails a Morale test, only one model can flee. When that happens, your Warlord recovers 1 previously lost wound.
  • 3: DNA Sampler: The kroot are capable to assimilate the DNA of their prey to modify their appearance as they see fit; this kroot leader carries a sample of genetic material to help its kindred adapt in the middle of battle.
Once per battle, at the beginning of any turn, you can select one friendly Kroot unit within 6" of this model. Your Warlord and that unit immediately benefit from the DNA Assimilation Stratagem, select one species and apply the desired effect.
  • 4: Master of Camouflage: This kroot commander has mastered the art of hiding, becoming almost invisible to the enemy's eyes
Enemy units must subtract 1 from their hit rolls when targeting your Warlord, 2 if it has the benefit of cover.
  • 5: Veteran Mercenary: A mercenary knows how to negotiate for a more generous payment.
Roll a die each time you or your opponent use a Stratagem, on a 5+ you gain 1 Command Point. In addition, if your army is Battle-forged, you gain 3 additional Command Points, 5 if in your army there are more units that don't possess the Kroot keyword that those who do, 6 if in your army there are more T'au Empire units than Kroot units.
  • 6: Apex Predator: This kroot has carefully selected genes from thousands of species to become the ultimate predator.
Add 2 to your Warlord's Movement, Attacks and Strength characteristics.

Specialist Detachments[edit]

Bounty Hunter Pack (1 CP)[edit]

All Kroot units in this Specialist Detachment gain the Bounty Hunter Pack keyword.

  • Warlord Trait: Bounty Hunter: Your Warlord and friendly Bounty Hunter Pack units within 6" of your Warlord may re-roll hit roll and wound rolls of 1 against enemy Characters.
  • Stratagems:
    • Fiercesome Ambush (1 CP): Use this Stratagem in the Charge phase. Select an enemy unit on the battlefield; Bounty Hunter Pack units attempting to charge it roll an additional dice and discard the lowest result if they start their charge move in cover.
  • Relic: The Hunter's Rifle: The Hunter's Rifle replaces the model’s Kroot Rifle and has the following profile:
Weapon Range Type S AP D Abilities
The Hunter's Rifle Melee Melee +2 -2 D3 Each time the bearer fights, it can make one additional attack with this weapon.
