Land Raider Proteus from Forge World

What do you think of the new Land Raider Proteus from Forge World?

Here’s what they have to say about it:

The ancient and venerable Land Raider has served the Adeptus Astartes since its earliest beginnings, and many variants and patterns are recorded in the data-stacks of Mars. Adepts of the hallowed Adeptus Mechanicus collectively refer to the oldest of these as the ‘Proteus’ patterns, and examples of these mighty armoured vehicles that survive into the dark days of the 41st Millennium are held in the highest regard, war-relics beyond compare to the Chapters that possess them.

Believed by certain war-savants to be an example of sacred machine-evolution, the Land Raider Armoured Proteus displays early features of the MkIIb Land Raider, enclosing its twin-linked lascannons in bulky armoured sponsons and adding to this formidable anti-armour firepower with a limited traverse twin-linked heavy bolter recessed into the forward hull armour.

I’m no expert, but it looks very similar to all the other Land Raiders I’ve seen… bar of course the different iconography (each sold separately of course). Can someone explain the difference?

I suppose these might help… Experimental Rules for the Land Raider Proteus
