for those who are wondering:

a riptide suit:

compared to a crisis suit Image

Someone's estimated a riptide as being 2.5x a crisi suit in height which I think ~ a 28 mm mini - so maybe a mash of tau firewarrior and robot (tau drone or cryx) parts?

Not that I'd suggest that anyone pay 2500,-DKK for a suit collection, but there is a very nice comparison pic in the GW webshop:

It's shopped, of course, so the Riptide may not be exactly that size, but it does looks like it's about 2x-2.5x the height of a Crisis suit.

Deacon, when can I have mine?

Just look at the plasma weapons slung under the gatling cannon then compare to the ones on the Crisis in the pics above....

It's more like 3x the size.

Actual Pic of Riptide vs. SM Dread vs. Broadside. The broadside is now significantly bigger than the crisis suits and it's almost 2.5x smaller than the Riptide.

I want I want I want! :o
