Here is my how to guide on converting a Chaplain on Bike from the Indomitus boxed set. This will allow you to field your own Biker Chaplain to lead your Space Marine forces into glorious battle.
For this conversion, you will need:
- Outrider Biker. The one with the pistol is the best choice, as this allows you to have the Chaplain wielding the Crozius arcanum.
- Chaplain from the Indomitus box.
- Book from the Ravenwing Upgrade sprue, or a suitable equivalent. The book on the Chaplain will also suffice.
- Other decorative elements, such as purity seals, chapter symbols, Imperial symbols, etc.
The process was pretty straightforward and you should be able to complete it in under an hour.
Step 1- Clip off the appropriate parts, and clean up the mould lines. Drill out the barrels on your Outrider Bolters, if you are so inclined.
Step 2- Take Chaplain part G3 and outrider part E30. Cut off the arm section of G3 to give you the torso alone. Glue the two parts together.
Step 3- Take Outrider part E29. Clip away the abdominal plate and clean up with a hobby knife. Glue this to the missing torso section of the piece above. Alternatively, you can fill this in with green stuff and decorate with an appropriate Chaplain symbol.
Step 5- Glue the wheel (E3A and E3B) together and assemble with Bike sections E25 and E26. Glue in your torso assembly.
Step 7- Cut off the Crozius Arcanum arm on the Chaplain (G1) and the head from part G3. Glue them in place on the Chaplain.
Step 8- Glue the Dark Angels Ravenwing book onto the top of the Bike, or use a suitable replacement. The book from the Chaplains legs will make a good substitute if you don't have an appropriate part.
Step 9- Decorate the Chaplain and Bike with any parts appropriate from your bits box. I used some purity seals to cover the hole when the Chainsword should be fitted to the legs. I also used an emblem dangling from a chain (taken from a Space Marine torso) to act as the Rosarius. There were also some appropriate Imperial symbols to add to the sides of the Bike to act as decoration.
With that, your Chaplain is complete. All that you need to do is paint it up and go crush your foes.
