GW should have thought of that. Wheels! Duh!

It does look way cooler... adds a teeny bit of height as well which improves the look overall.

I like it better. I saw a conversion with two sets of wheels in the back wells and one on the front wells which looked really nice. That said, I have yet to see this model being played.

I don't know if anyone owns one... everyone that plays IG has tons of chimeras... I could see getting them for a small allied force... like I was thinking about adding 2 squads of guard to my Wolves... but aside from that, not much call for these things... Maybe Campbell has one...

Along the same lines, you could convert it like a halftrack. Wheels in the front and tracks in the back.

I could see adding some to my Praetorians... Armor scout cars in the desert seems appropriate.

Dude! Thank you. My letter to Santa is already in the works. (The first paragraph is always an apology, the second is always a vow to do better next year, and the third gets down to business...)

There's another wheel conversion out there. Maybe it was a six-wheel kit; I think it's in Dylan's Big Thread. I think the Taurox needs six wheels, but any wheels are better than those tall, skinny tracks. Otherwise, I like the model itself. I just don't know if I'd bother replacing the Chimeras or the Stormtroopers I already have...

Maybe a four-wheel Taurox would make a good counts-as Salamander? I don't know, might look too heavy. And not open topped.

I actually like the look of the treaded Taurox as a sort of ice exploration vehicle which is why I thought of adding some to my Valhallans, but AV10 and all that kinda put me off. Maybe for stormtroopers. That being said, the wheels improve the look of the model for literally any other kind of terrain. Vic has been knocking it out of the park pretty consistently.
