Well the main chassis is a Mk1 Rhino/Predator, but as for the turrets/sponsons they look either RT/2nd Ed. or home made.

Thnx, I've just bought this thing on ebay for a fiver and am planning on using it as predator with las side sponsons (proxy or mebbe conversion, idk) so the fact it is indeed GW is reassuring

it's the MK1 pred (1st production version), and yeah the turret and sponson's did look a little dodgey, and that kit appeared when the pred became avialble for SM armys (end of RT, start of 2nd if i remember)

That is the original Auto cannon turret and lascannon sponsons design from GW. They were not too sexy back then. Those came out in the Rogue Trader days so that is a dated model for sure. Good find, as that brings back memories for us old guys!

Man that thing brings back some great memories. I remember when they first came out with that thing. And I will never forget the old vehicle damage targeting system they had either.

You can't shake the Devil's hand and say you were only kidding!!!

I still have the book and plastic "targeting" grid thingy. Ah, overcomplicated and time consuming rules rocked!
