The XV104 Riptide takes the evolution of the Tau battlesuit to a whole new level. First and foremost the model is huge, towering over the rest of the Tau – even other battlesuits and tanks. Sleek and elegant armour panels, along with bolts and grills, cover its body. Despite its enormous size, with ball and socket joints it remains a manoeuvrable model whose arms and legs can be posed in a variety of different ways. Either standing tall or even kneeling down, you can use it as a unique, dynamic centrepiece for your Tau army. As well as three variant heads it comes with a range of weapons options including a heavy burst cannon, twin-linked smart missile systems, fusion blaster and Riptide shield generator. If that wasn’t enough, the kit also comes with two Shielded Missile Drones.
This multi-part plastic kit contains 108 components and a Tau transfer sheet with which to make a XV104 Riptide Battlesuit and two Shielded Missile Drones.
This kit comes supplied unpainted and requires assembly
