    Has anyone tried putting the Oldblood out of the Carnosaur kit on a Dark Elf Cold One? If so how were the results or did it need Green Stuff?

    Best example I could find after using google was from @Haemoglobin's lava lizardmen. He has some good WIP pics here.

    If he finished painting it then I couldn't find the pictures... but it looks epic, especially that weapon!



    Found a few other cool examples too, but not exactly what you were looking for.

    Sir @alex_brown92's rider is the plastic saurus hero on foot, put on a dark elf cold one (link)

    and @GnomeRage also uses dark elf cold ones, just with the old riders: (link)

    Found a few more examples of conversions from the internet:

    Tony Pacheco's Oldblood, looks like it won best single model at The Alamo GT 2013 (link)

    This one was a stunningly beautiful model from pinterest, sadly no author attributed. Using the plastic saurus hero:

    Saurus Oldblood done by Michael Jordal (link):

    And some pretty neat temple guard conversions to make two saurus cowboys by @Centurion (link):

    There is also a little bit about this topic (using Dark Elf cold ones for our saurus lizardmen): Making Cold Ones look less dumb. I think there are some more, doubtless there are others on this site who have tried out the dark elf cold ones. I personally haven't, mostly because I bought two boxes of the plastic lizardmen cavalry before the dark elf ones came out.

    Good luck with your conversions!

    Hey man, yeah I think this conversion is pretty common. I made mine into a scar vet. You can check out more in my painting log.
