For 1K points I can have 55 soldiers (already complete), 7 Chimeras and one Scout Sentinel.
Needing 7 Chimeras is pretty pricey when buying from GW here, so after looking at overseas sellers and weighing up my options I decided to look for alternatives. I found a few. I wont be mentioning historical kits for this even though there are plenty of great ones out there.
Fist up this is the cheapest option I found. I mean crazy cheap!
The downside however is they arent the greatest looking tanks out there and they also arent quite Chimera in appearance. They make it to the list however by being so cheap!
They can be found here.
Next is the mighty Hammer Armoured APC
This kit has wheels instead of tracks and has little in the way of options, but as a bog standard blend of modern and old looks this vehicle is perfect for the Chimera role and is bound to catch some eyes.
The Hammer APC can be found here!
This next one has to be my favourite:
Rhebok Transport Vehicle
From Ramshackle Games this highly modular vehicle comes to a mere 20 pounds!
From this site you can make a Chimera, Leman Russ, Hell hound, Hydra and more plus all their variants! With so many options I think the Rhebok Transport takes the bait as the best Chimera Alternative out there.
Personally I will be getting 7 of these with tracks and they shall be my new armies ride.
The vehicle is crazy modular so it really pays to head to their site and check out what you can do!
Do you have any cool Alternative Chimera ideas? Im sure there are plenty out there!
