Does anyone know of any good XV104 riptide proxies out there? Was Thinking of expanding my Tau after all. Thanks.

There are no good proxies that I know of.
But I plan on using the EM4 mechs
http://www.em4miniatures.com/acatalog/Science_Fiction.html
As the basis for conversion. The two bipedal mechs are slightly different in size (not apperent in the photos). And I think they will work well for these two battlesuits.

Sorry I misread. Riptides for the larger suits (like stormsurge). For riptides the onslaught mega kaiju battle rig fits nicely.

Thanks for the replies. Good eye on the Kaiju! It isn't exactly it but I think it's as close as it can get. :)

The Onslaught Kaiju is a good match, but I went for Ion Age Duxis battlesuits. They'd probably work better as Imperial Knights, but they work well as Riptides.
The Havelock from Ion Age is a great fit for Stormsuges too.

I have been using the EM4 mechs as larger Tau Suits. Two battles so far but have not got back to them since painting,
adapting the chicken walker versions as the heavier fire support options.

Lots of basic EM4s deployed as Riptides. Battle Report, here

Contrast between the smaller and larger standing EM4s. Battle Report, here

You can also use Neptune mecha from Khurasan miniatures which is approx. around 15mm

Sorry and please delete if not appropriate, but have some just got some stormsurge proxies and am going to try ghostkeels and more kx139s proxies next. Can try to find something for a riptide as well.
Bad photography - the details are good in person, but you get idea with tac marines and a FW devilfish for size.
