Alrighty, I've been thinking about doing this conversion for quite some time. I think it would be an extrodinarily awesome conversion...
What if you were to replace the Defiler's battlecannon with the Hellcannon OF Chaos?!
Awesome idea huh? I'd just use the Left and Right halves of the Barrel and the Upper and Lower Jaw, possibly one of the support struts for supporting the huge weight of the cannon. It'd probably take up the entire fron of the Defiler Torso, but I wouldn't care. Probably try to have it facing forward, slanted slightly up. Probably have to glue the Defiler's legs in place, at least in the front, to take the weight of the huge chunk of pewter that I would've just slapped on its front.
To go along with the theme of the flaming faces, I'd grab a box of zombies and the Chaos mutation sprue and have the faces and different parts melding and jutting out of the Defiler's armor to represent all of the souls it has trapped in it's warped and mutated hull.
So, what do you guys think? Should I go ahead and do this? Or would the Hellcannon be to big? Can you think of anything else that should go with this Defiler's new Hellcannon?
Thanks for all comments and replies!
woah that would be extremeeeee XD I think you'll have to greenstuff it to the body of the defiler.. it might be massive, big and scary... O.O.
I say.. try it if you have nothing to lose.... XD and show some pics..
You know I only recently saw the hellcannon of chaos and I didn't put the two together tell you said it?
Also... when did you start a chaos army?
If you want to do this conversion just as a show case, at least for the time being untill you do start a chaos army, I say, go for it! The flaming faces alone is worth the conversion time.

I've seen the connection but think the hellcannon is simply too large.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.

Just a cool idea that I could possibly talk him into letting me do for him. Maybe then he'd get excited about finishing his army...
But who knows, maybe I'd get one for myself, do the conversion, and turn it into a Golden Demon-winner or something...who knows? :yes:Yea, thats the only problem with this conversion, it'd be FREAKIN HUGE!!! But if there was a model that could do it properly, it'd be the Defiler. Yeah, the cannon will most likely take up the entire torso of the Defiler...but who cares if it looks that badass, huh?Originally Posted by CBrate
LOL Anyways, most of this is a mute point right now cause I dont have a Defiler and dont have permission from my freind's brother to do it...but theres always tomorrow...
I just wanted some feedback as to if this was a good idea for a conversion or not. Thanks to all that have replied and to those that will!
i'm afraid it won't workj simply cus the cannons bigger than the defiler torso

I had a similar idea a while back, the barrel of a Hellcannon with legs made from large Tyranid scything talons, I never got around to building the thing, mainly for economic reasons.
It should be possibe to use the Defiler legs and possibly some parts from it with the Hellcannon barrel as the main body and cannon.
