Default Tau Forgeworld Stuff - Worth It?

The title says it all really, I like the look of the Hammerhead Turret varients and was wondering whether to invest in them.

What does everybody think?

Short Answer - yes.

Long Answer - you need to carefully pick which turret you need, rather than what you want. The fusion Cannon is by far my favourite - a blast multi melta!

Look at what your army is missing, or what you have a surplus of. If you need some anti tank, Fusion cannon. If you need a light vehicle popper, the missile turret (with SMS) is a beautiful missile tank.

At the end of the day, I prefer to stick with the Ion and Rail, but the FW turrets can be really useful.

Of course, the suits are better, and tetra are simply godly.

Agreed, the Tetras are the bestest. Or some Remoras (they cost the same iirc.)

I'd advise you get "Imperial Armour 3: The Taros Campaign" first though. Yes, it's the most expensive IA book (since I last checked...) BUT it has a lot of purty pictures and some awesome content. It has rules for all of Tau Forge World EXCEPT for Remoras, the new piranha variant, and the TX-69w/e Technical drone.

Side note, where can I find rules for the Remora?

There are rules for the Remora in the Apocalypse book, IIRC.

If you are going Forgeworld with Tau, it is either the suits or the aircrafts. The kroots are alright, but the suits and the aircraft are in a class of its own.

The suits are truly unique and my persona favourites are the XV-89 (the one with loads of armour) and the XV81 (The one with missiles on its back).

Without a doubt, the FW Tau stuff is fantastic!!

I picked up my TIger Shark AX-1-0 on FW Open Day, and whilst parting with the money stung, as soon as I got it home and assembled, i fell in love :-D Beautiful model!!

Remoras are great too. The dynamically opening wings make it, for me. I just hope they do a 40K scale AX-2-2
