Another vote for yes then Apoc, cheers. :)

So would there be any interest in this one and an alternative turret option too maybe.

Not 100% sold on the turret design yet, but the sponsons look great!

if you made a set like that it might be worth selling the turrets+sponsons as a separate pack as well, might be a lot of people who have spare hulls from other manufacturers that they're looking to upgrade

But then he'd need to design a set of turrets/sponsons that are compatible with different hulls, unless both hulls are interchangeable, right?

you can make a plastic rhino interchangeable with pretty much anything if you stick a big enough drill bit through its side

Looks good to me. Prefer not to have the sponsoon guns pointing out at such an angle though. Parallel to the hull is better.

Or just clip the socket joints off. It is how I made my predators from plastic rhinos before I had money for proxies.

that sounds far too delicate, 6mm is not a scale for subtlety!

That looks fantastic! Perfect addition to my DiD Novan Elites force - Get it made! Get it made!

agreed

I would also like to see the turret looking slightly beefier myself, but it's looking great already

as a side note, the availability, or lack thereof, of a suitable MBT is one of the reasons I've not planned a second marine army using vanguard models, this vehicle may well be a game changer :)

Ok chaps thanks for the enthusiasm for this one, to be honest this one has had nothing to do with me Ben designed it around the same time as funder 4, it has been seen before but like most others I had forgotten about it until a forum member sent me the picture.

So I haven't a clue if the sponsons are seperate but I do know that more weapon options were on the cards. I'd look to get a single autocannon varient done at the same time and maybe a set of alternative turrets etc not long after.

@ kyuss, big transport tank has always been on my radar problem here though is that at the scale the trojan is at a LR proxy would be as big as a spartan to be compatible visually. Also i'd like to have something compatible with my mountain of existing LR's, suppose I could get them made at the two different scales.

I've had a few comments about the turret and i'd like it beefed up a bit myself so a few tweaks are in order.

Cheers guys.

Don't know if this would be possible, but if you're the main 6mm distributor in the UK (and Europe too?), how about contacting Wasteland Game Studio's terrain: http://www.wastelandgamestudio.com/
