Default Firewarrior game important for tau players?

I havent played the game Firewarrior but I have heard alot of refrence to it and many people say that its got story info on the Tau.

Is it important in any way for a collecter?

Not realy - from everything I've heard parts can be interesting but most of it is ruddy aweful. A lone Fire Warrior taking out a Daemon Prince and a Valkaryie singlehandedly is about all you need to know to pass judgement...

For a collecter, Id say get it. I liked the game and the book wasnt exactly terrible. Some parts werent realistic but then again, what game really is realistic? If its realistic truly, its a simulation and I dont find those fun. Being able to blast away with pulse rifles, carbines, burst cannon and rail rifle is just plain fun, however accurate the story is.

In actual terms of 40k fluff it stays rather accurate and gives some insight into the Tau. That alone is worth playing the game and reading the book, even if you dont buy them.

The book was insightful in parts... but more often than not read as fanboyish garbage. Still, worth a look.

Fireblade? :\

I dunno if it's useful as a tabletop player, but the long-las and the grenade launcher were a lot of fun!

Not to mention a greater demon, obliterators, a titan ( well okay, it was deactivated), and countless other chaotic stuff...
But other than that it's a cool game, I advise getting it, even though it might be hard to find.

Why would it be hard to find???

It's easy to get a hold of... just don't pay more than 20 for it.
