TAU: Three XV104 Riptide Battlesuits!
Managed to get the third Tau Riptide Battlesuit built, giving me two with Ion Accelerators and Twin-linked Fusion Blasters and the team-leader with Heavy Burst Cannon and Twin-linked Plasma Rifle. I’ve built all the Shielded Missile Drones too and will probably use them as it seems rude not to gain an extra 2 T6 wounds.
It’s such a lovely kit, easy to build and can be posed in a variety of different ways. After I built the first I no longer needed the instructions for the other two.
What I really liked was that they provided a really tall flying stand/rod and the riptide itself has a socket for the ball to go into. I haven’t seen anyone utilise this yet so I decided to build myself a flying riptide 😉
The other two I made standing, mainly so I had some sanity left, but also so the squad looks cool stood together. Sort of like they’ve all just landed.
Fantastic kit and I think they’re pretty solid rules wise too!
A nice parting shot:
Now I’ve got all this new stuff my painted Tau army is becoming more and more unpainted!
