Default Enforcers and Vindicators

Is it just me or do Enforcer and Vindicator tanks look really weird?
I was reading one of my old white dwarfs (around less than a year old), and they had a battle report between Salamanders and Chaos Iron warriors, or something like that. When i looked at the picture of the Salamanders Rhino, Vindicator and Enforcer they looked strange. They're headlights were at the bottom of the tank, unlike the current Razorbacks and Rhino's, were they're at the top! Also the shape of it looked more flat, unlike the new Rhino and RB. Are they Mk1 tanks or are they just a special type of tank for the Salamanders?

I don't like how the Vindicator (old Rhino) looks. I hope they update the Vindie in plastic soon, I really want one.

A Enforcer looks like a old modelled Predator, pretty weird.

I have one of the old vindicator conversion kits from Epicast (prior to Forgeworld). Looks a little funny stuck to the end of one of the old rhinos:



The reason why the headlights are on the bottom is because that's how the old Rhino chassis was built. At that time all of the vehicles had their headlights on the bottom.

I used to hate Space Marine tanks too, but since they realeased the new Land Raider and Rhino chassis I've just fallen completely in love with them! I've never liked Imperial Guard vehicles though. They look all first-world-warry. I'm sure that's the point...but I just don't like them. If I was ever to start collecting an IG army, I think I would probably use Chally 2 kits and paint them up in guard colours. Sponsons would look really wierd on a Chally though and to neglect them would probably be a big mistake...I don't know how I'd represent the hull weapon either.

I love the IG and SM tanks a lot! My second army would be an IG Armored Company. Tanks to the max!
