Some time ago I posted up a piece of artwork that showed a rhino looking hovercraft. I believe the artwork was referencing a rare pre-heresy transport of some sort. I looked for a bit, and could not find the pic. I know the artwork was very cool, and I did not expect to see a model sculpted to look like it. Well here it is, an Ikarus Armoured Hovercraft.


I like this model, and its not often I show off all the misc companies sculpts that are available, but wouldnt these look beautiful on the tabletop?

here is the link to them. Here is a very recent release from Bitspudlo

  1. That does look really cool. I can see putting that with a preheresy blood angel army, that way even the non-jump units get their own floating transport.

  2. IF memory serves, it was the Custodes that used these hover craft to enter the Imperial webway.

  4. It kinda looks like the ship on the Star Tours ride at Disneyland. I'm not impressed.

  5. Think I'll have to pick these up when I eventually do GK. Would be a sweet rhino for a rogue inquisitor, especially one that commits heresy like allying with Tau or something. I haven't decided what to do with that idea yet, I kinda wish you could get non-gk troops without Coteaz

  6. Seems like somebody did a kitbash of a few of these. They are almost identical.

  7. The full Rhino STC has variants for all worlds and levels of tech. Wood burning steam powered engines all the way up to the pinacle of Anti-grav tech.

    I can not remember where I read that but it stuck with me. I can imagine a Coal-fired Steam Belching Rhino. Something abit like the Steam Tanks of Warhammer Fantasy.

  11. I realise I am late to this party but was wondering how you would rate the quality of the kit as I would like a Rhino, but not a GW Rhino as board of seeing the same old boxes across the table from each other.
    Would you actually recommened them? Not on basis of deisgn (already won me over) but materials, ease of build, overall quality etc

    1. I have ordered two, if you remind me at some point, then I will let you know. From previous experience with this company their stuff requires work to make it look good, but when they have the only solution on the market, then what is one to do.
