I finally managed to finish building the first of what will be duel exorcist tanks for my rag tag sister’s army.
I plan on inducting allot of guard and trying to create the feel of a world on the edge of civilized space and neglected by the imperium with the exception of a small Battle Sisters shrine dedicated to some long dead saint.
I wanted my exorcist to look more like it belonged to the guard and not the sisters. So I ended up with this.
I need to find a rod that fits into the Havoc launchers better than a paperclip, right now they hang lose and won’t stay if you try and angle the rockets. When I figure that out I'll add some detail on either side of the turret to hide the pin holes.
The cool thing is I can probably field it as a Basilisk in a pure guard army, or swap the turret for a fancy transport.
VERY kewl! I'm impressed! I don't know the size difference between a Chimera and a Rhino, so I don't know if any WYSIWYG true-line-of-sight rules lawyers out there will give you a hard time about this, but I say it's worth it to field this!
I like the creative use of havoc missiles here. A good paint job that puts something attention-getting on the tips of the missiles will make it look even better (bullseye, white tip, stuff like that). I agree that you have to figure out a way to make it angle, otherwise it looks less like it's on the battlefield and more like it's in storage in a garage somewhere. Have you tried brass rod? If it sags in the middle, have you considered a central support of some kind? A piece of plasticard mounted on the turret base/hull with a hole bored through it would work. If you can't take it apart now, consider a piece of plasticard with a notch cut at the top to rest the center of the axle(? Is that the word?) to rest on. Might help.
My only other quibble is that it doesn't look "Sisters-y" enough. Don't get me wrong -- I've always been a tad turned off by the plethora of religious iconography, and anything, but ANYTHING looks better than the ridiculous "organ of death" that the "official" model uses as a "launcher," but some kind of add-ons will distinguish the model. Right now, I think it's almost gone too far in the IG direction. A fleur-de-lys made out of plasticard, or at least a few painted on the hull, will go a long way here.
But no matter what, this is a good-looking model. Nice job!
Very nice conversion plus What ^he said.
I compared my Chaos Rhino and one of my Chimeras and the Chimera actually looks just a little bit bigger/bulkier so you good there I think.
Anyway I think it's sweet and would love to play against it no matter how much I fear those Faith points. It fits what you have said about your fluff but you may want to put some Sister Iconography since it is there tank.
If you do things right people wont be sure if you have done anything at all.
What a lot of missiles! I like the Games Workshop version of the Exorcist, but that's not the only version there is, is there? I thought there was a more utilitarian looking ForgeWorld one, but I've never seen it. Anyway, with all the old land raiders and rhinos and things, nothing wrong with yours looking 'non-Standard', especially when it's so nice looking
Thank you Meph I love all the detail work on those painted models, it's so 'Sistery'!
