I have recently put together a Chaos Preadator, and am quite pleased with the way it turned out. Unfortunatly, it doesn't look very Possessed, even with my (not so experianced) attempts to do so.
My queation is, how do you make the predator look possessed, without an excessive conversion?
In the previous Chaos 'dex they just painted some eerie faces on its armor. Think Lucius' armor.
I think a cool idea would be to take half of a daemon mini, or something similarly sinister looking, and take the top half and glue it right to the hull. Then GS some stretchmarks around the daemon to look as if its trying with all its might to escape, but can't quite make it.
I think the easiest way to represent it would be to get a bunch of Icons of whatever god/undivided or whatever you want it to be posessed by, and stick it on there, and maybe do stuff like paint on seals and symbols on there to make it look like the marines are acknowledging it and such. Otherwise, the really easy and cheety(not really) way to do it is, with the pred, there is a Chaos vehicle sprue, one of the little "plates" has a face, one has spikes, etc etc. I would stick a few of those around the vehicle to represent it.

WINDMILLS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!
I treat it different depending on wha vehicle I possess. (metaphoricly speaking)
If it's a dread I don't mind doing the whole Deamon bursting out/Vehicle look alive thing as I think it really suits their personality.
If it's a Pred I think any such half daemon/half machine conversion will be mighty troublesome and will take a good old many sketches and thinking to make look beliviable. On Preds I prefer the simple way. I use chains to look the Daemon within and pretty much leave it at that.
There are pics in my gallery on what I mean

I've always wanted to buy an extra one of those heads on the Defiler to represent dæmonic possession, but that would probably only work on a Whino or some other tank without a real big turrety type weapon and would probably make it looks really cheesey (I hate it when it's easy to tell how something was converted, and the Defiler head really sticks out soo......)
That being said, I'm a poor little man and I usually float in the "put the stuff from the tank spure all over your tank in no semblance of order" boat - they come for free with the tank, and they mak it look pretty cool (especially post-painting) so I go with that! please don't hurt me.
