An iconic showing of Tau technological progress and genius is the XV8 Crisis Battlesuit. Skimming along on the jets from their repulsor engines, Battlesuits close in on their enemy with speed, unloading masses of their diverse weaponry and leaping away in a split second thereafter. Only the elite of the Tau are allowed to pilot these suits, after spending years on the front line. Able to be dropped from a planet’s upper atmosphere, they slam into ranks of enemies like a meteor strike, the XV8 Crisis Battlesuit is a balance of firepower, speed and resilience.
This plastic kit contains everything you will need to build three XV8 Crisis Battlesuits, with six drones, with masses and masses of customisation available. The suits all have ball fittings allowing fantastic posability. You can optionally assemble one miniature as a Shas’vre, with special head and chest plate. One suit in the kit can even be built as the new Iridium-class XV8-02 Crisis Battlesuit.
In the box you will find the following:
- Four plasma rifles

- Three shield generators
- Six drones that can be built either as gun, shield or marker variants
