RIN MX-200 "Behemoth" Landraider

With the Immortal War heating up, the RIN realized it needed a way to safely transport troops across war-torn terrain. The RIN did not want a simple APC. The RIN wanted something more. They sought a fusion between a tank and a troop carrier. The result: The RIN MX-200 "Behemoth" Landraider!

Image
The Behemoth has a bolter sponson on either side of it.

Image

Image
There is also an opening hatch in the back for easy troop deployment.

Image
The flagpole, complete with a skull on top!

Image
It is also armed with dual-linked assault cannons, a missile pod, and a devastating plasma cannon!

Image
The plasma cannon can be manned by a minifig.

Another size comparison.

So, what do you guys think?

I'm sorry, but that's pretty ugly IMO.

Thanks.  8)

@mgb: that's sorta the point. It's meant to carry troops.

@Ender: I might do that in the future.

No, I'm mostly referring to the proportions. I can't help but feel that it ought to be longer.

It's kind of like a WWI tank/Jawa Crawler hybrid. I like it!

Half of the reason for landraider production was to fight the wild cult beast.  :wink:  :lol:

Anyway, thanks Hobo and Alex!

hmmm.... maybe if you did away with the extra tank treads and used them in the real treads, and tried to replicate the silhouette of the 40k tank it would look better. it does look slightly boxy right now, so if you elongated those treads and put a bulldozer blade in the empty space up front it would look loads (no pun intended) better.

I think this is great, and that the boxiness isn't a problem. I would also second the addition of a dozer blade. Dozer blades make everything better. Or spikes.

It's a great looking tank. The only problem I can see is lack of a big(ger) gun at the top.
