Thats right, I said it. THQ has teamed up with Games Workshop to create a Life Sized Rhino for the release of Dawn of War II.

That has made my day, and it's not even 40 minutes into my day yet due to my time zone. Wonderful news of a real-life conversion taking place, though it's unfortunate that they won't be making any marines to stock it with.

If 12 men are supposed to fit in it, how is 10 space marines ever going to do so?

I think they need to multiply the size with say, 1.3 or something. Then again, that's a pretty big conversion... :

I wonder how that Rhino would compare to the transport its based off on a real life battlezone.

The Rhino will be in either Blood Ravens or Ultramarines colours, most likely Blood Ravens for DoW, and it will be at Games Day UK. One side of the Rhino will have replica bolters on the wall, and the other side will have booths for DoWII demos on =D

I'm just wondering how they are going to do the side doors? the track arrangment on the base vehicle is going to mean either false doors I think or them putting new tracks on this ting so they go over the top.
