The problem arises that the Rhino kit doesn't have a dozer blade, which leaves you the choice of either buying a FW one, pilforing a guard one or making your own. I made my own because its a blank canvas to do something outrageous. Space marines are outrageous..right...? This one a competition in my FLGS a few months ago, it really does take me that long to get my camera out. Comments and criticism welcome.

Love the detail, but there seems to be way too much going on, i mean you have the radar, all the smoke launchers, the offset search light, the dozer blade, the open hatch, the banners and the gunner that wants to hit people with his sword instead of shooting. Try to keep it a little it more simple. Apart from that, you did a great job.

I agree, this tank looks busy. The marine holding the sword is more reminiscent of someone mounted on a steed...I mean what does he need the powersword for anyway? I like the dozer blade...very creative and definately has the look of something the ultramarines would adorn their machines with. The only critique I have about it would be its size relative to the tank...it looks massive!

I see what you all mean about it being too busy. On the other hand, it was fun converting, although I never learned when to stop . As for the guy on top, the 'mounted on a steed' image is what I had in my head, shouting 'Ultramarines, ho!' kind of thing. The sword is necessary to beat of hitch hikers . The dozer blade is massive compared to the tank, it just turned out that way.

It's definitely busy, but also has the Ultramarines Bling! thing going for it. Nice smooth paintjob and great freehand.

The painting on this is very good, but as said before way too much going on. The dozer blade is unique, and would probably suit a ultramarines tank.

Cheers for all the comments guys, greatly appreciated. Next Rhino will hopefully be less busy.
@tipios: lol, a Fiesta scale dozer blade, sounds like an interesting project. Now all I need is some scrap metal and a servo-harness.
@von Domm: I will eventually do a tutorial, but I'm at uni atm and my plasticard isn't. Sorry.

Holy fething frak, that is amazing.

I will agree with others on the issue of too much going on, but in this case I personally think that it just adds to the ridiculous grandeur you were obviously going for (or if you weren't, it still looks nice). Nice.

Thought the EXACT same thing.

Yes the model is a tad busy but if the roof hatches close I have a feeling it'll open up the model a bit. Still love it none the less, looks awesome.

I am not a fanof the dozer blade. I like the pattern and the paint, but its substantially too wide for my taste. it needs to be about half the width. Additionally the physical size makes pplayability more of a problem (physically moving and transporting the mini).

Hmmm something is going on here.....Oh.... it seems there is some dispute over video taping of some sort......Frazz is really upset now..........wait a minute......whats he go there.......is it?

Probably work

I agree with Frazz. I appreciate the SM = grandiose thing, but the dozer blade is a bit too much. Maybe if it were a little less wide.

Oh well, to each his own.

What a great conversion !!

While I love the look of the dozer blade, I can't suspend my grasp on physics to believe that central eagle figure-head wouldn't crumple at the first impact (or be forced back into the rhino) ... assuming it's dozing into buildings and not meaty heretics and aliens. If the latter, fire up those engines and doze away !!!

Really nice work !!

not NEARLY rediculous enough

Seriously, I do feel bad for the rhino's engine. That thing dangling off the front has to weigh as much as the entire rest of the rhino (passengers included). I can't imagine what would happen to the transmission if it actually tried to plow through something.

Oh, and can we get a picture of the rhino from further away? A side shot or something with the entire model put together (including the RTM) would be nice.

@Ouze: I love that image! That's exactly what's going on.
@Frazz & daedalus: size in games is an issue, luckily I'm not a tournament goer and no one in my flgs is going to care.
@Myrthe & Ailaros: this is 40k, physics and reality have nothing to do with It's made of a new material, invincibilium.
Here's some side and top views to get a better look at it (with the hatch closed). I've included a guardsman/scout for copmarison/ramming purposes. I'm going home this weekend where I will pick up supplies and start a tutorial shortly afterwards, so keep an eye on this thread.
