|First Vindicator kit released in 1999|
- Previously, the only Vindicator model based on the MkII Rhino chassis was a resin kit released by Forge World. Games Workshop has since released a plastic version of the Forge World kit for its' Apocalypse expansion. The MKII version has a large bulldozer blade in front, now a 'siege shield', protecting the tank's smaller demolisher cannon.
- In game 'fluff' the Vindicator made its appearance during the Horus Heresy and was adopted by both sides although the latest background states that the Iron Warriors Traitor Legion makes it a point to scavenge these for their own use whenever possible and often field entire squadrons of Vindicators. Like the Razorback, the Vindicator has not been featured in many other derivative games outside of the two tabletop games in which it has miniatures for. Vindicator squadrons are usable units in the PC game Final Liberation: Warhammer Epic 40,000.
