found this on putting it together hope its what you wanted

Quote:
I presume you're asking about the fancy Pipe Organ version with all
the Pewter pieces not the Forge World version with resin pieces.

Test fit all the pewter pieces. They tend to warp. But you already
knew that. :-) Try to find some pictures of assembled Exorcists or
better yet, find one you can look at up close and personal. You
definitely want a better idea of how everything fits together than
just the instructions. Be prepared to use a rubber hammer and a couple
slabs of flat wood to help unwarp some pieces without flattening them.

Glue the back door of the Rhino Chassis SHUT and let it set overnight.
You need all the strength you can get back there with all the weight
of the Pipes centered on the rear section of your tank.

Glue the round Missile Bay (where the Servitor is busy loading) to the
underside of the Exorcist 'roof' as a separate stage so the weight of
the pewter piece doesn't warp the plastic piece. I used Super Glue to
glue the pewter piece in, pressed VERY hard to get it to pop into
place and let it set overnight. I then smeared some 5 minute Epoxy
around the joint on the inside to make certain it will NEVER fall
inside the completed tank. After that set overnight, I glued the roof
on top of the Rhino Chassis and let it set overnight while upside
down..

Use a 5 minute Epoxy to glue the 3 sections of pipes to the horseshoe
shaped piece and each other. Do the same for the podium/keyboard
pieces. This will help fill in the inevitable gaps. Leave the Missile
Rack at the back of the Podium as a separate piece for painting then
use 5 minute Epoxy to glue it in place at the end.

I found the Keyboard a real bear to paint when assembled but didn't
have the skill to paint all the podium pieces separate then Epoxy them
together ESPECIALLY since I wasn't certain how everything was supposed
to go together even when test fitting with bluetack to hold stuff
together while I checked. In the end, I simply smeared some 5 minute
Epoxy on the parts I knew had to touch and relied on the Epoxy to
slowly set while I fiddled with the podium. Eventually, everything
seemed to pop into position. Perhaps you have more skill and will be
able to paint the Keyboard before assembling the Podium.

Glue the Servitor and Musician together but do NOT glue them in place.
Paint them separate. This will also help when painting the inside of
the areas where they'll eventually stand. I even hardcoated them
separately.

I painted all the Side and Front panels separately then Super Glued
them in place during final assembly mostly because I didn't want to
mess with trying to paint the edges of each piece. Painting them
separate also allowed me to hold them at weird angles while smearing
paint in all the nooks and cranneys.

Do you want to be able to field your Exorcist as an Immolator and/or a
Rhino? If so, you'll want the back Pipes piece, Servitor, and Podium
piece to be removable If not, consider making the back Pipes piece
removable for ease of transport. If you want your Exorcist to be one
piece at the end, consider pinning the horseshoe piece to the Exorcist
'roof' (after the steps I mentioned earlier) then pinning the pipes to
the horseshoe piece. That SHOULD hold the back end together.

Be prepared to spend a LONG time on your Exorcist. I take about a week
to finish 5 Space Marines. It took me an entire month to finish my
Exorcist and that doesn't count the week I spend filing and pounding
pieces between test fittings. Good Luck. The end result, though, is
worth all the time spent on a spectacular modelD
