PostSubject: Old Rhinos Suck   Wed Aug 26, 2009 11:24 pm

So, I got a bunch of old Space Marine stuff in a trade, and it included a 3rd ed Battlebox with one of the old style rhinos in it. Man, that model sucks. Anyways, here's my question:

Do you all think I should actually construct the model, or should I use all the bits from it for terrain, etc...

Meh..the model is just so....cheap looking, I guess. Plus, they're so small. Am I really supposed to believe 10 Astartes in full plate fit in that? Sheesh.

But anyways, its mostly the model. I just don't like how the model looks, it doesn't fit together particularly well. I think part of it is the fact that, previous to this model, I've only known the new Rhino which is, IMO, a wonderful kit.

Well if it's anything like the land speeder that came with the 3rd edition boxed set, I can see how it would suck. Half of the parts in that didn't fit properly.

I'd use the old rhino for bits and scenery then.

Or you can be very creative with them and make it look like they have beeen piece mealed repaired... that might look cool if done right, seeing as they have that self repair thing now...

I got an old rhino from a buddy and hated it (my buddy hated it so much that he gave it to me). I ended up using it as a blown out rhino for my scenery. They're just too small compared to the newer ones. Same goes for any of the old vehicles, just too small. The astartes back then must have been alittle shorter and not as stocky to fit into those elbow to elbow or they were stacked like boards to fit. Very Happy

Can someone take a photo of an old rhino and a new rhino side by side? I just can't see them being smaller. I mean even new rhinos are small , way smaller than they should be to fit the amount of troops they are supposed to.

They are definitely smaller the older vindicator is smaller also, I have one (rhino), unassembled. I thought about assembling it to use in special scenario's. Something like...

"Joe Blow is in the rhino and has to get from point A to point B. You have to capture him, I have to defend him."

...and yet it still sits in the box. Too many things in front of it. Smile

Isn't the old rhino mostly metal too?

It is definitely quite a bit smaller. I've done the side by side comparison before.

I was just about to say that. I like the old "slant nose" rhinos....still use one in my CSM army. Anyway if you hate it that much chop it up for terrain or make it a looted ork vehicle.

Yup, that was my question. I think the general cons. is to either terrain kit it or bash it up as a Ork Looted. Sweet.
