But I think that's the point. Think of them like slightly tougher guardsmen with a bolter and two CC weapons, and you'll find their point-worth to be right on the mark.

They are very good at what they do... now if you want them to be a dedicated, winning close combat unit, then they have a long way to go and would easily cost two, three times as much.

So they are a good unit. When compared to other things that fill no role, or have another unit that does it so much better (stealthsuits, sniper drones, gun drone squadron, skyray), the kroot really do shine as a good investment that remains relevant to 5th, which is saying something for this codex.

Oh, and Ravenwing squadrons need a rework to not bleed kill-points, and deathwing need a cost reduction.

In the Grim Darkness of the Far Future, there is no Common Sense.
