Default Tau Forge World ships vs GW Tau Ships

If I play want to play the Tau Forge World Ships as regular GW Tau ships. What the differences?
The Tau Custodian is xxxxxxxxxxxx (the Gal'Leath Explorer) Class Starhip?

The Forgeworld stuff is a completely new fleet list, available in IAvol3.

I know there are new stats in IA 3 but I had seen some place where you could use the FW model in place of a GW model, because FW stats may not be accepted by some people I play. So in I might have to play with FW models and still be using GW model stats.

I am planning on buying the IA 3. I just wish I could hear from some people about where they bought it and if they think it was worth the cash?

Is there anyone out here in TO that has all the Tau BFG FW ships? Where did you buy them?

I have the Emissary and Wardens, I'm still waiting for the rest to arrive (long story...)

They are nice models, I can't wait for the other ships!


Basically, you have a few options regarding how you can use the ships:

*You can sub tem in as the equivalent Ileath'Fannor (Commerce and Exploration fleet - the metal Tau ships) vessel if you want for the time being,

*You can try using the specs given in IA3, but they are not recognised as canon by Specialist Games, and there is no fleet list for the ships in IA3 anyway,

*You can try out the most recent forum PDF for the Kor'vattra Qath'fannor (Commerce Protection Fleet - the resin Tau ships) at the SG development forum at http://www.specialist-games.com/foru...t.asp?CAT_ID=2 (a few of the posters have the link to the forum PDF in their sigs)

or

*Ask one of the playtesters - nicely! - for a copy of the SG PDF for the Qath'fannor (They had the list up for a short time, but FW made them take it down)

Hope that helps!

Gary
