Rhino Detachment

I have been thinking about getting some miniatures for Legions Imperialis since it was released. So was pleased to get the Legions Imperialis: Rhino Transport boxed set for Christmas.

The Rhino is the most widely used armoured personnel carrier in the Imperium. Based upon ancient STC technology, the fundamental design is robust, reliable, and easy to maintain, with an adaptive power plant that can run off a wide variety of fuels. Within the Space Marine Legions, the Deimos pattern was the most widespread, serving as the basic armoured transport available to the Legiones Astartes and the foundation on which a number of other war machines were based.

In the box you get two sprues that can be used to construct ten models.

This was the first time I had seen these models in theĀ flesh. They are smaller than I thought they were going to be, but are (obviously) bigger than the older original Epic miniatures. However I thought they would be larger than they are.

I like how the box has come with transfers covering the many legions of Legions Imperialis.

When it comes to painting models, I do like to see how others have been painted. These are the images from Games Workshop.

I am thinking I will paint these as Imperial Fists.

The first stage will be constructing the models. Unlike the older Epic models, which were a single casting, these are multi-part kits.
