Default imperial update tau stuff: is it worth playing?

the stuff in the imperial armor update book that the tau can use... does any one know if they're worth it...

I'm thinking mostly of the barracuda and tiger shark but in general I wanna know if it's worth using money on...

also if anyone has bought the orka I would like to know if the models included can be used for anything other then being carried around...

Vehicles like that are more display pieces... they certainly aren't the sort of thing you should use every other battle!

The Tetras have been used quite successfully by me and they are both challenging and fun to play. They are only trial rules though and not in the IA update.

They are usable but they eat into your pocket and points total, I might get myself a FW models but I just think that the books you have too buy to use them are tto expesive

Are the planes (barracuda and tiger shark) flyable or will they just be "standing there"?

I'm not too sure on this but I think they must be in range and you need a 6 to hit them (not sure about copywrite)

i think there is some option whcih allows you to put a weapon in an anti-aircraft mount so it hits normally...im not quite sure about the rules for flyers, although they look nice im not going to spend my money on vehicles that cost that much and only sit there and look nice...but thats just me!

Yeah, Forge world stuff is far too expensive to be useable (IMO)

An inexpencive hobby is no real hobby, as they use to say...
Just the pleasure in putting those good-looking tetras together, not to mention painting them, was worth every penny!
