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 ☹️

For what it's worth I ordered their Taurox wheels kit a while back and got great casts and fast service.

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.

I just received my Chimera conversion kit yesterday. I haven't assembled anything yet, but quality is excellent.

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.

Wait how did you get the elongated hull and turret positioning on that?

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

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.

Here is an example of the Capricorn in a more normal configuration.

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.

Maybe it's a bit of thread necropsy but they have a new open top conversion kit.

Color me interested.

Salamander conversion or just a roofless chimera?

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.

Elbows, thanks for being a customer! Let me know what parts were not up to snuff and I can get you some replacements. Just send me a PM

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

Those tracks reminded me that I have a spare set of Chimera sides that I have been meaning to convert into an Ork Truck. Might have to order some.

Wow Machinator!

I've purchased some of your kits, but never noticed your Sanford turret or matching sponsons/ weapons.

Those are EXACTLY what I NEED!

Really dig the Barmkin kit, like the fact that you have spots for magnetization of he rear hatch. Hopefully I have some pictures up soon.
