Im going to make an army using predator miniatures from copplestone, heresy and predastore and I need help with a few ideas!

Firstly what codex should I use to represent them? I was thinking at the moment either GK or DE but not sure.
Also what to use as vehicles? Converted tau, eldar or DE or something else?
Is there anyway I could use Kroot alongside them without using the tau codex?

On copplestones there listed as hunter aliens in the non human section

Are there any other 28mm scaled predators I could use?

Thanks.

A GK Paladin army would fit well - 3-11 single model scoring units, unless you have read the books and are planning on using hunter kindreds. then it would be Eldar , Dark Eldar, or oddly tau. (Harlequins, stealth suits, etc)

Tau vehicles seem they'd antitheticaly suit the models best. In my eyes at least.

As for which book.... Eldar does seem the obvious. But maybe Spacewolves or CSM? Good shooting, good close combat, tough and durable, but not THAT tough.

Tau, markerlights and railguns. . . could work.
GK paladins as blooded hunters. . . could work.
DE wyches as hunter kindreds. . . could work.

you have to decide what form of the predator you want for your army and it could work, but only you can decide.

Space Wolves would give you the option of having the 'hounds' they used in Predators (fenrisian wolves). Lone wolves fit the bill pretty well.

He'll require a head swap possibly but the Totem Hunter (http://privateerpress.com/files/products/minions/solos/totem-hunter.png) from Hordes is right up your alley too. :)

I would have used them as battlesuits or stealthsuits for the Tau

Don't do another marine army, espeically not GK. I say DE, as they both having hunting other life as MO, they both use stealth and speed to survive, they both have weird alien weps, DE can have beasts as these dogs someone mentioned. Also, if you go GK you may possibly (not saying you will, but might) be accused of either power-gaming or jumping on the bandwagon.

You can also still use the old Kroot Merc list to add kroot to any army you like (pretty much), or go with Kompletely Kroot (as long as you aren't playing in GW stores and you opponents are OK with that).

Thanks for the replies.
I only play with friends so that Kroot merc list will be perfect!
Now I'm leaning towards DE the only thing is their toughness isn't what I'de think a preds would be but that's not to big an issue.
As for vehicles any good ideas how I can make tau vehicles look preddy?
