    well i took an army man tank that was surprisingly cool looking and is nearly the same size as a rhino, and i added a bunch of cool chaos bits and stuff to it, and thus was created my chaos pred, i would get some pictures put i cant scan it because there are some odd parts that would make it break if i tried to scan it and i dont have a digital camera, anyway, it looks cool and i know i have another one exactly like it that i could do the same with, but i cant find it


    here are the pictures




    and the bigger version

    Post some pics when you can. I noticed a lot of people are basing their tanks on model ones nowadays.... Good idea.

    try looking at the 1:35 scale bradley afv (american) or the british warrior afv (again 1:35) both of these are about the right size and are &#39;&#39;boxy&#39;&#39; enough to fit in with a chaos army

    The 1:35 scale M113 is a box on tracks and makes a really good Rhino, even resembles it, you can also find them for around &#036;12.00 - &#036;15.00.
    If you wanted to make a Hydra really easily you could use a 1:35 scale ZSU-23-4, it would be absolutely perfect for a Hydra.

    1/35 scale is way too big for 40K. WH is in 25mm "heroic scale," which actually converts to about 28mm (or larger) scale. The equivalent traditional modeling scale would be 1/58, but of course nobody makes anything in that scale. There are some models available in 1/48th scale, which is close, but still a little bit too big. Add to this is the fact that GW Rhinos and other tanks are rediculously out of scale to the figures, and any readily available model won&#39;t look right when playing the game.

    Of course, that didn&#39;t stop me from making an Exorcist out of a 1/48th Bradley AFV, but I justify it by claiming that the Exorcist isn&#39;t a STC model, and therefore doesn&#39;t have to come on a Rhino chassis -- although it is often retro-fitted onto one. (This was before GW announced that an Exorcist was comming.) Heh -- works for me.
