    Hi Guys,

    I'm thinking about converting my old metal lizardman carnosaur to a troglodon.

    Since I'm new to this I was wondering is; are there any rules on converting? I've heard that the weapons must match what's on the warscroll. But couldnt find much more. Is there any?

    I was thinkingg about painting it in the Troglodon colours and adding some wiskers on the nostrils and putting a skink on its back. Will this be sufficient?

    Im not really sure about creating a ridge on his back. Seems like a tough job with greenstuff.

    Also I'm buying a bastiladon soon, are there any spare parta in there that can help me with this conversion?

    Much thanks!

    Hmmm tough one.

    So let's see... What makes a Troglodon a Troglodon.
    - long face
    - no eyes
    - whiskers
    - Skink Oracle riding it, no saddle in most cases
    - double tail
    - tongue or spit thing
    - color
    - EDIT forgot the fin. Add a fin on the back!

    You won't be able to sculpt the long face I fear.. but the double tail should work.
    Then maybe do something with the eyes and give it a looong tongue.
    Then paint it accordingly and give it a Skink to ride it.

    Should do.

    Oooooohhhh I really did! Thanks for mentioning it.
    ...I think that could actually be one of the more easy parts to cinvert, with a lot of impact on how the model looks.
    Edited my earlier post.

    Might be easier to convert a toy spinosaurus, like this one from papo. (comes painted)
