Hey me and my friend love conversions and I play chaos and he plays Tau. Even though I am not LATD he still wants me to take an IG tank and chaosify it so we can use it in our matches. I was thinking about buying a nice pie-plate chucker and going with the basalik. First of all is it better than a defiler and secondly how would I exactly go about making it chaos besides paintin it my colors.
40,000- 7,000 Points Chaos Space Marines=18 and 17
40,000- 2,500 Points Tau Empire=1 and 2
The basilisk has the same offensive ability (if not a little better) than the basilisk, but it is 50 points cheaper. For 100 point pie-plate the bas is significantly better. However, the defiler has far more defensive abilities and can deal moderate damage in c.c.. I prefer the basilisk, because it is cheaper.
As far as conversions go, buy lots of chaos bits and mount them all over the vehicle. This is the typical way of convertig Loyalist models to Chaos. Make sure a chaos symbol is visibile, as this will produce the desired conversion with minimal work. There are better ways of converting to chaos than simply adding bits, but that's all I can think of for now.

Im, an IG player and think he's right lots of spikes lots of weird dead and things that should not be living bits should start you off. but...
I went to a painting contest at my local GW and saw a land raider that had the a big crater cut out of the front and in this crater he took some bits (most likly tyranid and choas) and made it a giant mouth that could eat things, it was so cool plus their was a lot more mouths scatered over the land raider.
