Hmm... I was planning on using my yet unbuild and unsold Eisenkern Kellerkopf for my Adeptus Arbites as their ride but to make a limo from it...  ???

I just ordered a Zvezda 1:43 Doc Hudson: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Zvezda-1-43-Disney-Cars-Doc-Hudson-Snap-Kit-2014-Plastic-Model-Kit-/331395494664?hash=item4d28b5f308:g:uy4AAOSwofxUddco

So more of a Cult Coupe than a limo. I'm thinking some kind of flying car like the flying DS from the Long Tomorrow. 1:43 is a bit bigger than I'd normally go for, but it should work with GW figures and it's a flying car after all, not a scale model.

Will likely come to nowt, but at least I'll have a snap together toy to play with!

Good choice.

But with a bit of plasticard and putty, I figure it should not be too hard to elongate it a bit to 'proper' limo dimensions? Especially when it's an actual plastic kit...

Ohhh, a Limo challenge, this sounds tempting. My first ever army was Genestealer Cultists, so plan to get the boardgame for nostalgic reasons, coupled with the fact that in my opinion this looks to have some of the nicest  figures from GW in a long time.

I honestly don't know what that is. But for some reason you made me go look and see there's a die-cast 1:43 Ecto-1 out there. Not cheap though. :(

The 1:25 plastic kit is cheaper, but is probably humongous compared to 40K minis.

The Long Tomorrow is a comic illustrated by Moebius and a character drives a flying car that is very reminiscent of the Citroen DS (the most beautiful car of all time :D).

Aaah. Ta. I...

I actually have that, in the L'Homme est-il bon? collected volume. :-X

It's been too long since I looked at it.

Cool. I might try to knock one out of my 3d printer. Why had I not thought of this before!
I always like the look of the minirons one and thought it would be a great limo for a cult.

The new gene stealer game is in the GW New Zealand online store for pre-order.

Ok I'm out! At least buying the box game. It's 160!!!!  :o At least if my conversion from NZ dollars to pounds is right!

I'm still making my limo though. My classic hybrids need a ride!

I think they get hosed in the antipodes.  The Betrayal At Calth set is $315 for them.  It is $150 in the states.  I'd imagine this will be about $175 in the states or probably about 110 quid.
