Default Chaos and standard Landraiders?

Okay, so here's the dilemma I have run into this week. I am starting two armies concurrently, Grey Knights, and Chaos (Nurgle). So I jump started both, Bought a few Chaos things, and a Few Grey Knight things. Specifically I bought a Land Raider for the Grey Knights. I Glued it together as a Regular Landraider before I realized, I went to far and am unable to magnetize the body to go from Regular to Crusader. So once I have collected myself and apologized to half my neighbors for having to listen to me spew forth profane remarks for the last hour.

I think, "Why not use THIS Landraider as the Chaos Nurgle raider since they only have Regular Land Raiders, then go out and buy the Chaos Landraider, use the Chaos parts for the other already assembled Landraider, assemble the new one and magantize it as a Grey Knight LandRaider/Crusader. Seems like a sound idea no? One problem, I don't know what the Chaos one is like. How different are the Chaos/non Chaos kits other then then pewter Crusader parts that don't come in the Chaos kit? Will the chasis be identical to the Regular? Will I be able to pull it off?

Should be fine. Looking at the part breakdown on the GW site, the chaos kit just has the two chaos accessory sprues. It's like the rhinos. GW doesn't have two different sets of molds and sprues for chaos and imperial.

I just had a crazy thought. Anyone think it'd be possible to magnetize (or something) vehicles shared by both SM and CSM so that the same model could be used by both armies?

Sure...if you want bad luck.

You can't make Grey Knights ride in a tainted vehicle!

I tihnk it'd be pretty easy, but you'd need armies with similair paint schemes.

My subtle diagram disagrees with you.
your "subtle" diagram contains Optimus Prime and Proffessor Farnsworth, it's heresy in it's own right!
Any similarities between your reality and mine are purely coincidental...

You aren't fully understanding me. ;D

By the time im done, i'll have 1 Landraider for Chaos, and 1 Landraider/Crusader for Daemon Hunters. the DH one being the Magnetized one. Get it?

A red and mithril silver scheme worked wonders for me.

if I wanted to, my tainted land raider would merely just look like a fearsome landraider in the hands of the grey knights.

just dont put the 8 pointed symbol, youll go places.
