Default 2 questions concerning new models

Hey i have to questions about the new tau empire models that i need someone to answer
1.Have GW made the basic firewarrior troop different?
2.if you put a forgeworld head on a normal XV8 battlesuit, does it count as a forgeworld model and can you play it in an official tournament?

1. no except that you can make 1 squad an ethereals bodyguard and pay extra pts for them to get bs4. That is the only change I know of.

2. Makes no difference who's head it is.

You notice that when you give your opponant a rules advantage, they never ask you to show you THAT rule in your codex.

It will only count as a forge world battlesuit unit if you're using a model that has the various upgrades evident on it, (either a forge world model, or a conversion) and if you've paid the points for those upgrades. If you just do a head swap because it looks cool the rules don't change, so you can use it in any tournament.

Hopfully yes, ive heared that you can upgrade a unit to BS 4 for some points but i doubt we will get a WS added it would b to un-tau.

But yer i have the same crisis as you and they get alot of respect and mine allready has 12 battle honers!

Fire Warriors - no change

Forgeworld models there isn't anything that I know of that restricts the use of the models as normal XV8s. They're only restricted if you use the Forgeworld IAV3 rules I believe, as you can use the models AS normal XV8s.
