Default cheap better looking chaos raptors

I was doing some browsing around a local games workshop and spotted a sprue in a bag on the wall containing to my surprise exactly 12 space marine assault squad jump packs for 10 bucks i quickly grabbed a bag and picked up a khorne berzerker box and there we have it 12 great looking berzerker raptors for 55 bucks canadian a way better deal(and better looking to) than the metal chaos raptor boxes where for 12 metal raptors you have to shell out 124 dollars.

hoping i helped some of you save money, Chaos_master

Although i don't think this is a new idea. BUT its a good one if you are looking for cheap raptors. But with my army, the Raptors within my force are from a old warband that was been absorbed by the main cult. Therefore they look different and i use the current raptor models.

Also, using the berzerker sprue over and over again kind of get boring after awhile

Good idea for some cheap ones, although I'm not sure about better looking. I, for one, love our current Raptors, however expensive they might be. Ave Dominus Nox!

Great idea saving money is great. Anyway it would be good if your army is a recent addition to chaos. Add extra spiky bits to it otherwise it will look obvious. Anyway they could be looted by your chaos. In the codex it say they loot rhinos. These are just some fluff justification if anyone is a jerk and gives you a hard time.

yes that jerk just happens to be my friend but as since my warband recently "adopted" some more evil loyalists into the band(fluff is something about sorcerer saving them from exploding planet or something to lazy to dig it up or remember right now) i should be fine. I'll just say i pillaged some pulse rifles too as well as one-size fits all crisis suits .

I had this very idea for the Loyalists Assault Squadron's. I didn't like the models so I went out and bought the jump packs separately and converted a Tactical Squad.

Personally, I'm more of a fan of wings instead of jump packs. Definately converting a Chaos Marine Box with several editions from the Possessed sprues. I'm going for a heavily warped/daemonic kind of look with my army so I think it fits the role.

A good idea no doubt but i just get the loyalist assault marines and just mix them with your left over chaos space marine bits and they make a perfectly good squad.

This i no doesnt fit in with a few peoples fluff and some rather uptight peolpe might get upset.

However provided you paint them well and are a nice gamer then you should never see any problems. I never have with mine...
