* Interestingly enough, [[TabletopGame/Warhammer40k Warhammer 40k]] . All of the old Rouge Trader models are still technically legal to use in play. This can be useful in building larger armies by simply using the older models. The interesting part comes when said models have different sizes then the newer models. The Land Raider, Rhino, and Tau Broadside were quite smaller then their current sizes. Another unit is the Space Marine Terminators, as the models used to be on smaller bases. This is due to a GW ruling stating that models use the base they where supplied with.
