I have seen the article on converting a Rhino into a Vindicator by using the SoB Immolator sprue and MkI Vindicator accessories. I am currently debating whether I want to buy the whole Immolator Kit, or just the sprue (saving me $ by using my own spare Rhino).
My question is, if I get the Immolator, and build it as described on the UK site, Can I then also use the Bolter/Gunner turret included on that sprue to make a Astartes-like Razorback out of my other Rhino? Has anyone experimented with that sprue that may have some insight? I would love to see that gunner turret with a Marine torso on top of my Rhino. If this will work, that's the way I'd like to go with it, using the standard Razorback rules.
Thanks in advance,
If the SM Rhino is anything like the CSM Rhino, it will have a sprue with it that is useable with Predators, so the answer is yes...I think!

On a seperate note, I am inquiring how easy it would be to add a Marine torso-and-up in the turret seat, in place of the Sister.
Thanks for the input.

Yea, that's the article I was referring to in my first post. I am just trying to get the most out of this conversion by using the cool otherwise-wasted 'manned' turret from the Immolator to upgrade one of my spare Rhinos into another custom Razorback - using the SoB Gunner and Twin-Linked Bolters, but replacing the torso, arms, and head with a plastic marine.
If anyone has the Immolator box, I am trying to figure out if that turret will just drop onto the Rhino Chasis with the included Predator/Razorback top hatch - without the raised Immolator top - or if lots of work will be needed to make it fit properly.
Essentially, am trying to get two conversions out of one, and seeing if this is something that has been tried before. I will be ordering an Immolator in its entirety tomorrow - not just the accessory sprue as I had been considering. It will be cool if this is an original idea (the second Razorback conversion from the spare parts). I will let you know what I find out.
Thanks again guys,
Well, even if the turrent you intend to use does not fit, you could always make it fit. All you would have to do is increase the size of the hole so that the turret fits and voila - you have yourself a converted razorback.
Good idea by the way, should save you a pretty penny!
