My brother plays the Tau and he's about to get Iron Hands, in your opinion, are they worth it?
If the concept of bionic Space Marines is appealing. If you like their fluff. Read their Index Astartes stuff.
If you're asking whether they are teh cool and kick ass points and stats wise, then it dosen't matter. Basically, they don't get term squads, but can have them as sergeants, and have slightly cheaper master crafted weapons and bionics. Not as many bells and whistles as say, Iron Warriors or BA. (Cursed be both).
If you choose armies based on such shallow things as stats and points costs, you won't have nearly as much fun as if you went with an army because they appealed to you fluffwise or aesthetically.
Thats why I am so fond of ork, tyranid and IG players.
I know that there are many Necrons, SM and CSM players as well like that. But the majority have an ahem, ulterior motive. Though some get off on it as well for that very reason, I imagine.
I'd say go with your gut, Or even if you think the army looks cool. Thats how i started Thousand Sons, i thought they looked cool. Plus, as it turns out i love the fluff and their style of fighting!

Choose on your looks and colors. You're going to have an army that you're going to be staring at for a while, and painting too, so you gotta like the looks. Fluff might be important too. I chose the SM Ultramarines army because i loved the color scheme and the Space Marines just look soooooo coooolll!!!!! TUrns out, the Ultramarines are well-rounded so I can deal with whatever situation I wanted. Or they can be shooty. Just my style.
I've just started to collect Iron Hands because the history and I have read the Index Astartes article which I think is really good. I also have some good ideas for conversions.
they get venerable dreads!

Well, we can't make up your mind for you, but if you know that you want, it will make things easier. For example, I picked the Space Wolves for their play style, look and fluff.
If one thing bothers you about them, maybe they are not worth considering.
If Wolves were meant to fly, wouldnâ€™t the Emperor have given them wings?
I will say that the Iron Hands have got to be worth it because they have normal Space Marines plus extra parts for conversions for hte same price. And they have cool shoulder pads, i think. Do they?
and obviously if you are a lazy painter iron hands would be good for you (if you stick with their regular colour)
