Just as deserving Fire Warriors are gifted with XV8 Crisis Battlesuits in which to go to war, only the most experienced and worthy of XV8 pilots are promoted to the role of Battlesuit Commander.
Greatest of all fire caste warriors these elite few lead the Strike Forces to war, they are the most fearless and versatile of fighters among the Tau and can be upgraded with some of their most deadly and experimental equipment to fight alongside the soldiers under their command. Sometimes clad in experimental armoured battlesuits that provide flying capabilities, they can zoom across the battlefield and destroy high priority targets that the rest of the Tau Cadre can easily mop up the rest of the enemy force in the knowledge that they will confidently win victory for the great good. Commanders are often accompanied by loyal retinues of Battlesuit Bodyguards and can be found at the very tip of the spearhead driving a devastating wedge in the enemy’s front ranks and ensuring their opponent bends to the Tau will.
This boxed set contains two highly detailed plastic miniatures of a Tau Empire Commander and drone.
