Default Tau Forgeworld stuff

I am just curious as to see how many of you have any forgeworld stuff, and if you do, how useful is it in games? Frankly, I love everything about the Tau, and I don't like my other armies any more and I am going to sell all my other armies, and get more Tau stuff. I am keeping my nids as my CC army though. I am just in love with the outstanding looks of Tau. Also, I know what a manta is, and I beleive there is a model for epic 40k, but what about one for regular 40k?

FW is more fluff than tactical. I got a baracuda, and it's dead useful. Probably the most useful FW model. I use it in 2000+ piont games. I also have a XV-84 battlesuit. I just proxy it as a normal XV-8 commander.

The Tetra is the only real FW thing (other than the Flyers) that is usfull at all.
The rest is a waste of money

Guide to Forge World Tau and Kroot models - From the Important Topics Sticky.

FW have cool models etc, as previously said, its more for fluff purposes than gaming. I don't have IAV3 nor have I seen it, so just refer to the above thread for info on how they play etc (though I think that thread was written pre-IAV3).

AFAIK, ForgeWorld are working on a full scale Manta Model.. see UK Games Day 2005 Coverage (New Codex, Vespids & more)

FW excels in making models that are cool but not useful to 40k gameplay, unless yopu regularly play mega battles with titans.

I use an XV89 suit for my commander and plan to eventually replace many of my suits with the XV 89s. However I plan to just use them as normal crisis suits

They work fine for me. Though both are linked to in the 'Important Topics' sticky anyway, found at the top of this board.
