Default IG tank kits

Does anybody think that the IG tank range needs doing over by Games Workshop? After all, they are (I think) the oldest vehicle kits still being produced. I don't particularly like the look of the Leman Russ myself, although the Chimera is great. I don't know why, it just doesn't look right, especially when compared to the current IG range (i.e. Cadians).

Thoughts?

EDIT: Just had a little think, and remembered about the Chimera - that turret seriously sucks. :P

Well, you could argue that the Imperium doesn't have any need to upgrade their vehicles. They fear change. But the gnomes at GW could at least put out some alternate turret choices like FW. I'd field alot more Chimeras if I could get TL heavybolters over the multilaser.

I quite like the tank kits. The only real complaint that i have EVER had with them (aside from the wheelie things) was how silly the tracks looked, but the new codex solved that.

Not totally. They do indeed upgrade and even create new vehicles and equipment. Take the Ragnarok, the Reaver and other examples.

Real men fight in tanks!

I'm not talking about actually upgrading their vehicles to be more killy or anything, just bringing a new line of plastic kits in, like they did with the Space Marines.
