I decided I wanted to try a combiflamer for my new Lord. I figured the bolter gives him the ranged capabilities, and when he is going to charge in, he can use the flamer, and possible get more then just the single target a pistol would.
Alas there is no such hunk of plastic. I took a bolter and a plastic flamer(from space marines sprues). I cut the nozzle off the flamer, right up to where the nozzle itself starts. Then I cut the tank off the flamer, as close as I could to the gun.
I filed some flat surfaces on the bottom of the bolter barrel and top of the flamer nozzle. I glued the nozzle on, with the back end flush up against the magazine. I then took the flamer tank, and filed the cut off end at an angle, so the tank would jut out at an angle. After filing a flat surface on the side of the bolter, I glued the tank onto the side of the bolter.
It looks pretty nifty, and I might take a bit of GS and fill in the area between the nozzle and the magazine so it's completely seemless and doesn't look "after market".
I think this is what lots of people do when converting their own combi flamer. Would be nice to see how yours turned out, any chance of posting some pictures of it?
Sounds cool, what I did for a weapon for one of my battlesuits was take two of the IG flamers and glue the together side by side, glue the tank of flame-power on the suit's back, and make some green stuff tubes going back to it... looks kinda cool.

Yea, I plan to take pics of my Lord and all his bits and post them up. I converted him from the SM commander set, and magnatized the heck out of him.
I did a similar thing for his combi bolter, since the commander set comes with the storm bolter. Took two bolters cut off the handles and glued them side by side. Cut the hand off of the combiplasma in the kit, and glued it to my combi bolter, in the middle of the two bolters. Pretty cool looking combibolter now.
