Tau Empire XV104 Riptide Battlesuit by GAMES WORKSHOP

Tau Empire XV104 Riptide Battlesuit by GAMES WORKSHOPThe XV104 Riptide is a technological marvel of the Tau Empire.  The model is huge, towering over the battlefield – even tanks look small next to it!  Sleek armor panels, along with bolts and grills, cover its body.  Despite its enormous size, with ball and socket joints it remains a maneuverable model whose arms and legs can be posed in a variety of different ways.  Either standing tall or even kneeling down, it can be used as a unique, dynamic centerpiece for a Tau army.
