The Tau Know Bigger Is Better With New Games Day Battlesuit

The Tau are getting the massive model treatment this year at Games Day with the mighty XV107 R’Varna Battlesuit from Forge World. See what you think of this monstrous creation with it’s rather epic looking guns…

The Battlesuit looks awesome with two epic guns that look like they’ve been drawn from the pages of a anime movie. I like that you get a real good look at how exactly these could work on the battlefield, with all those bits and pieces opening up as it charges.

The best thing about the model, from my point of view anyway, it how ‘humanoid’ it looks. Gone is the tiny head that we saw on the Riptide and it’s been replaced with a sleek torso that has much of the Mass Effect style Geth look to it. Rather than it being a suit it looks like it could have a mind of its own.

That is certainly a gem of a release for Forge World!
