Am currently building an Exorcist (that is, of course, converting an Immolator) I thank Sentinel Killer for the recently published instructions. ..However. . .
First off, how can the tail gate be attached so that it can be opened and closed? Right now, the one on my tank is hanging open, dragging along the ground, and looks like the backflap on a union suit!
Second, could someone please post a photo of the Exorcist from the back? Something on mine, thus far, is either wrong or missing (I'm still simply fitting the pieces together, have not glued them as yet, and can still make necessary corrections.)
Is it worth mentioning that for the price of this thing GW might have included instructions or perhaps a picture or two of the finished thing?
Since the exorcist does not carry troops - glue the back hatch shut
the back is pretty simple, cant post but all the icongraphy is optional al asside from the murals on the two rear sides, the pipies, the thing they rest on and the back of the top plastic piece, there is nothing other than rhino visible
Everything you have been told is a lie!
Below are two links to pics of my Exorcist after painting. Hopefully they can help answer your second question.
I was the author of the conversion article, although I have tried several times to get the name corrected. The fact that the article was submitted to LO first, sat in limbo for a while, and was resubmitted to LO Mag may have something to do with that. Hopefully that will get corrected.
The back is held up with a small magnet in the door at the top of the ramp, and a corresponding magnet in the top of the door opening. I have a picture of it, but it may not be very clear.
If you need better pics, please let me know. I'm glad you found it helpful!

I have obviously screwed up a bit, especilly where the 'cockpit' sits on the body and totally where the pipes connect in the back.
Thanks for you help and patience!
I'll have to talk with Dark Lioness and see what can be done to correct the link issue, so that the links actually show up in the article.
I have a second Exorcist that needs assembly, so if there is something specific you would like to see, let me know.Chered has a point, but in my case, the pipes and organist can be removed to make an Immolator or regular Rhino, and still have movable doors for those occasions. If the vehicle was a dedicated Exorcist, there isn't a need to have movable doors.Originally Posted by Cheredanine
And so it goes. Thanks everyone for the help. Sentry, I hit you with a rep.
Am stilling struggling to get the pipe base to sit properly without leaving any gaps. I spread the horseshoe shaped thing apart a tad but there are still some tiny spaces (especially in the back where a notch was left in the metal to drop down behind what I guess is a light?)
Sentry, you are building a second Exorcist? What size army to you field?
One more thing. . .both Rhinos and Immolators sport plows (what do you call them?) on the front, though I have never seen that on an Exorcist. Is there a specific reason or just personal taste and copycating?
Yes this is consitently a problem with exorcists, I talked to Sentry about it when he wrote his article, you need to trim the metal bit quite a lot, often it needs bending, this is very difficult to do. Unless you want to use the thing as an Immolator, then I recomend actually trimming the plastic, much easierat 1000+ point WH armies should be atleast considering if not taking 2 exorcistsSentry, you are building a second Exorcist? What size army to you field?You mean Dozer blades? the thing that, for the WH stuff looks like a series of girders sticking out the front with points on them?One more thing. . .both Rhinos and Immolators sport plows (what do you call them?) on the front, though I have never seen that on an Exorcist.

They are dozer blades, as per rules help you move through difficult terrain, this is useful if you are going to be zooming accross the board trying to get close to your opponent to drop off troops (rhinos) or flame them (immolators) and you are going to have to cross difficult terrain, but less usefull for an exorcist that tends to move 6 inches out from behind a building and that is it all game, there is some arguement for putting it on in cityfights and for using area terrain, but generally people dont do this

There is a space behind the back sensor that will leave about a 1mm opening. During play, you won't even notice it.Am stilling struggling to get the pipe base to sit properly without leaving any gaps.

I never could get it to sit exactly perfectly on the tank itself. If you look close (at the blurry pic) you can kinda tell that the right side doesn't sit flush either. It's about a 1mm gap there also.I have 1800 pts in models, but 1000 pts is the largest (only) game I've played, and that did involve two Exorcists. I borrowed one from the GW shop I was playing at. I haven't found the time to go play again since, though... :cry:Sentry, you are building a second Exorcist? What size army to you field?

Also WIP, but you can see the gap.
As for the door, I put a tiny tiny bit of plastic cement on the hinges and exercised them.
This had the effect of defoming the hinge slightly and making the action rough. Also, some thick paint on the edge of the door frame so the door stays up. Lastly, you could use a magnet on the frame and a tiny bit of metal on door.
But none of this is neccessary as it'll always be shut. (I've not sealed mine as it can be converted into an immy or rhino at will).
