Are the forgeworld riptides worth the cost to buy them?

How do you mean? Is anything really worth the price we pay for it? The fact that you can get riptides in non-elite slots is pretty great.
Everything I have ever told you, even this, is a lie.

Double posting because 3days later.

One thing I hate about forgeworld riptides is the need to buy a normal riptide to use with it. You would think at forgeworld prices they could at least sell a whole model.

It's not the whole model? I mean table top performance vs monetary cost.

I don't believe it is the entire model, I think it is just the upgrades to modify a riptide. I can't speak to their effectiveness though.

Eta: After watching a YouTube video on it I was mistaken. My apologies.

My understanding is that you get the bits of the normal Riptide that you need but not the full Riptide kit.

One problem I have heard of with the FW variants is that the solid resin torso's make them very top-heavy.

Hopefully not as heavy as my landraider spartan.
