If you wanna stick to Onslaught, here are a few options (I noticed you're based in Europe, so delivery might be faster/cheaper when done through its European distributor, Vanguard Miniatures):
https://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/t ... estroyers/
https://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/t ... -shredder/
https://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/juno-apcs/
https://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/h ... tle-tanks/
https://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/v ... ort-tanks/
https://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/t ... rator-apc/

There are other options as well:
https://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/n ... red-truck/
https://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/n ... vehicle-a/

Or get your hands on Vanguard Miniatures' plastic sprue, meaning you'll have some humans and Ork proxies as a bonus:

True scale 6mm stuff. They would work fine with the infantry, but are a little bit bigger than the old epic vehicles. However, the plastic vehicles would be about the size of the old metal Chimeras.

Hmm, last one not my taste. Too gothic.

The Chimera-like plastic IFV is pretty much exactly the same size as a GW Epic Chimera.

The plastic Ork vehicle is somewhat larger than that.
