This was their response to that question on FB:

Sadly there is a certain multi national company that strongly frowns upon their products being use to promote third party parts.

So no ☹️

I noticed these too. They definitely have my interest.

He also sells a "not a Chimera" alternate top hull and turret. It would be funny if you could eventually make a Chimera from 100% aftermarket parts.

You will notice the side kits are longer than a regular chimera side so the back can get kind of wonky. I like building chimera with the push back turret so it was no big deal. I also had a couple of there alternate chimera tops and turrets, but I'm going to put a regular kit turret or the jimbolina turret on this puppy.

It's the Capricorn(?) kit from Blood and Skulls - a Chimera conversion kit.


Blood and Skulls Industry @ 2018/09/06 11:46:56


Post by: Insurgency Walker


Correct but you can push back a regular top too. You have to shorten the top hull part on a regular chimera kit when you do that, and you end up with a small gap which is easy to cover with the hull extension bit that is part of the basilisk kit that is in the normal chimera kit. Although in this case I just used a pit of filler.




Automatically Appended Next Post:
Using the Capricorn top I ended up with a good sized gap which I covered by using a portion of that bit that is leftover from building a regular chimera. I must admit I love how the backend of the 8 wheeled kit came out.

Using a regular chimera turret you don't have all that overhang on the rear deck hatch. Nice thing is to get a bog standard chimera turret on that kit doesn't require much work.

My "special forces" marines (Grey knights and Deathwatch) have wheeled transports. I've been using the Chapter House wheeled conversion kit for my Grey Knights Razorbacks. I decided my Deathwatch needed something a little different, so this kit will serve as a basis for their Razorbacks.

Color me interested.

Salamander conversion or just a roofless chimera?


Blood and Skulls Industry @ 2019/08/07 04:32:54


Post by: Insurgency Walker


Well he also sells the same kit with a extra small turret with a gun. That could be used for a salamander variant. The open top kit would just be an open top chimera with only a single hull mounted weapon. Though it shouldn't be too hard to ad some form of Pintel mounted weapon in the back. Personally I'm either going to use it as an under gunned PDF type transport, or add a pintel mounted multi laser.

He's been putting out a bunch of new stuff lately - particularly good looking stuff. I have a bucket load of B&I stuff on my Chaos Marines. It's been 90% good, 10% poor, just some random bits aren't wonderful - but that's dealing with resin. His prices aren't amazing, but they're very reasonable. You start adding little bits and weapons and you suddenly end up with an $80 order of resin.

Would highly recommend most of his kits/products. Particularly because his weapon sponsons etc. are all set up for magnetized weapons. He covers a lot of Forgeworld weapon options for vehicles as well. Good stuff.

Speaking of necropsy, look who's back!

I was wondering why I had an uptick in Barmkin sales

Yes I have been busy with some new stuff. I have a whole line of Rear Engine Plates that go onto the back of Leman Russes and a cool set of wrap around treads that fit between the side panels of both the Russ and the Chimera.

Hey Machinator,

It's all good. Just "resin" stuff. Some minor warping, a couple things that came in a bit of a shiny/doesn't-like-paint resin, etc. I was able to make use of all of them. Enough elbow grease can make anything work. You did sort out an issue for me when I was missing an item or two in an order. I've zero issue spending money at Blood and Skulls

The new tank back plates are a dream, especially with the extra armour kit that just so happens to fit a Leman Russ. I'd kill for some sort of extra armour for the front of the tank now, maybe with an armoured drivers hatch or something.

I've been slowly working on an Ork looted tank army.

Your stuff made the process so much easier.

I outfitted 4 Leman Russ tanks with main turret and gun, sponsons with weapons, fuel tanks and engines, and the little detail set. Everything was well cast and went together without issue.

I ordered more sponsons and engines for some Macharius tanks.

If I build any more Russes, I will definitely try out the tracks too.

An chance of orky plasma or lascanon for sponsons?

Yes, an Orky laser cannon and plasma cannon are on the list of things to do. I was just holding off until I got a feel of how this line of products was going to do.

Ordered mainly weapons in the past, decided to order the Kolosus turret (KV2 style) arrived, had a play around with some weapons I had lying around.
Very versatile turret for Imperial guard would recommend for Hydra( think Shilka's cruder cousin), Wyvern, any russ (heavy assault duty, hell yeah KV2 style), Basilisk or Griffon (shell'em in style).

Mine mounts autocannons or quad mortars(made by cutting down Blood and Skulls auto cannons where the barrel begins to taper if you're looking for a fast-swap wyvren). Hasn't even got a chassis yet, or even a hatch :(


Spoiler:

bit of a rough WIP atm but hatch aside its all there

The MKII Light Turret won't fit in the Baneblade hull but it is design to work with the sponsons. It also makes a great razorback turret.

It shouldn't be too difficult. The width is about the same, you'd just need some plasticard to fill in the height.

So I was originally going to build a pushed back turret using a standard chimera top and cutting it up but my brand new kits top was all scarred up from some mold pulling incident I assume. It was damaged at the front so I opted to go with a different 3rd party top. Liking the results.

I can certainly look into it. You're not the first person to request that option

Baneblade sized mudguards/track guards would be awesome, I've seen some made out of the original plastic leman russ ram, and they look great, unfortunately I have not found any old leman russ rams for sale :(

I got 2 sets of these recently along with 3 sets of rear exhausts and fuel tanks. Absolutely top notch. Need to get another 2 sets after Xmas.

So on New Years Day we had a big release at Blood & Skulls Industry. We now have our very own chassis to go with our Aquarius and Pisces Conversion Kits!

The Bullfrog Chassis comes with numerous weapon options along with a detailed interior. The top and the seats are also removable allowing a variety of customizations as new parts are released.

Now available!

Is there any chance that just the front hull will be available separately? I already have Pisces 8X8 and Bramkin open top conversion kits, but I need Front hulls to build them. I'm making Griffon Heavy Mortars so I don't have need for the turrets/seats from the back section in this kit.

Unfortunately the Bullfrog chassis is narrower than the Chimera by about 1/2 an inch so it won't work with the Barmkin Kit. I did that to give the Bullfrog a more proportioned looked with the wheeled sides. :(

It took me a moment to realise the 3rd gun represented the pintle mounted weapons. I was confused why a chimera equivalent needed three gun mounts. Very cool!

Is their any weapons in the back catalogue that works of the main turret that could be used to represent twin heavy bolter?

Ah, this must have been the second project you mentioned! I haven't even had a chance to build the half track.

My Griffon Heavy Mortar using the Pisces and Bramkin kits together. Still need to greenstuff the gaps but I'm very happy with the result

That's some beautiful work there!

I have plans for mortar versions of my Bullfrog and Barmkin kits after the hard top version is done. Your conversion is a good indication of how awesome it's going to be

Using high technology I have come up with 3x variants based on a modified Aquarius chassis, if you beat me to this conversion, good on you I want to see a ton of pics, actual picture is a pices but I'd use an Aquarius, a regular taurox turret should suffice for most roles, but a predator in the fire support version would look mint
Click to see Ratel goodness
Spoiler:
IFV infantry carrier
IFV fire support (probably a taurox cannon or something of a similar size)
IFV ATGM system

They're already in process, just wait a bit

Actually I've been getting a lot of requests for a recovery/engineering vehicle.

Sounds good, will definitely keep an eye on your shop

The missile launcher variant looks very nice to me (not really surprising, if you know me). But I guess it has to wait a bit, until my heap of unpainted models shrunk a bit

So essentially OldMate, you're asking for 40K versions of the Stryker as a 6X6

No bro, this is a Ratel not a stryker https://tanks-encyclopedia.com/coldwar/South_Africa/ratel

See how it looks like this

and not this well this is not a stryker either, but it is the stryker's source design the Ratel

was a completely indigenously developed vehicle for South Africa's enviroment,

But that is beside the point. I have here is a suggestion to fellow modellers for an alternate vehicle, which also provides their model 2x additional exit points and a sensible design. This is not a request of Macinator, just a heads up to anyone thinking of making cool chimeras/taurox/razorbacks

If you like the Ratel I think you guys will like what's coming

It's getting 3D modeled now and should be out early next month or so.

I would like a weapon comparable to the conquer cannon, taurox battle cannon or any other battle cannon type weapon that is essentially the same thing.

Fair enough. I though Stryker as it's what I rode in during my time in the US Army. Hence why I got the 8X8 Pisces conversions

Awesome, I think the pisces looks pretty good, I'd like to see a pic of your project Salted Diamond.
