I have found this roaming around the web.

Basically it's the WH40K Imperial Guard version of the German "Sprengpanzer Goliath", which was a wire-guided mine on tracks

From what I remember about the Chimaera's dimensions it seems that the item could be repurpoused as a 15mm WH40K tank, what do you say?

What we would need would be a comparison pic close to 15mm figures.

I've had this idea too. I think, just based on eyeballing it, that if would be a little bit too small for use as a 15mm tank. Maybe 10mm would work.

I shudder to think what that might cost. Forgeworld ain't cheap….

Here they are next to a couple heroic 28mm.

Maybe better as terminator themed hunter/killer sort of machines?

I would think it is a good match for a mini-tank, maybe an urban warfare vehicle to maneuver easily on city streets and between buildings/cars :)

If the miniature was heroic 28mm then this mirror of the same is 15mm.

Maybe this helps?

Two manned UAV; Urban Assault Vehicle?

Put a police style battering ram on the front :)

But priced currently at $17.88 USD…each…I suspect as noted, they are beyond reasonable retail reach…$18 could be applied to something else in 15mm/related scale that provides more bang for the buck IMO.

15mm Quar transports?

Proxie Models Trencher Tank could be a more budget friendly alternative, if you want a 15mm Leman Russ styled tank. link
