At a hobby swap meet I got two new on sprue raiders for like ten bucks each. I already have enough transports for my army, but it was such a slamming deal that I couldn't pass it up...I am hoping I can buy bits online and convert them into two ravagers. Has anyone done this before? Is it possible or would the bits cost too much and not make it worth it? Anyone ideas would be great

The question is whether they are "new" or "old" style raiders. At that price you may have gotten the older ones.... which back in the day, GW did sell a ravager upgrade blister for. I have watched these off and on and they sell well over $20. That said, they are metal, and people did all kinds of neat modular tricks with them. Still I'd never pay $20 to upgrade something that cost me $10 to begin with.

The newer Ravager is just a raider with an upgrade sprue which includes the extra gunners/gun options. I have seen the upgrade sprues up for auction but they are tremendously expensive for what you get. I'd say go for the individual bits; you can pick what you absolutely need and it should be cheaper. If you want to try your hand at creating your own however - I'm sure there are lots of cheap dark lances floating around from scourge/warrior box sets.

Either way - Good Luck

Okay thank you. And they are the newer models. I'll be on the lookout for those bits:)

eBay will sort you for the bits you need... It's very little of the sprue overall!
