This beautifully painted Imperial Fists Damocles Command Rhino won the Forgeworld Best of Show prize in the 2005 UK Golden Demon awards.
The radar dish moved around and as you can see in this shot, the inside included “real” lights (made from LEDs).
It was very well painted and made good use of the Forgeworld Imperial Fists doors. Though I wasn’t too sure about the “highlighting” on the radar dish. The aerials are well done and add to the overall effectiveness of the model. Probably not too practical for a gaming model!
The weathering is very subtle and very well done, sometimes I think it can be too easy yo over-weather models.
Epic Space Marine Battleforce advanced in front of an Imperial Manufactorium.
These are in the main metal Epic models. The Land Raiders and Vindicators are metal models (from the Epic 40000 era) however the Rhinos are plastic.
The buildings are from Snapdragon Studio and work really well in this scene.
These Dark Angel Space Marine vehicles were on display in Warhammer World.

Just outside Warhammer World in the car park is the full size Rhino that was originally used as a promotional piece for the THQ Dawn of War video game.
THQ gave the Rhino to Games Workshop who then gave it a repaint in Ultramarines colours.
