    Hello everyone, I've been looking at the Gamezone range for an Imperial army and I stumbled upon their Cold Ones in the dark elves section.

    I think they look very nice and I wonder if anyone has tried to put some mighty lizards on them. I've been looking on the forum and the question has been asked but I've never seen a final result so far.

    Any help about that woud be appreciated :)

    Thanks !

    I have one, not finished yet but the saurus cold one riders do fit, be warned the castings do take a bit of cleaning and filing to get a nice assembly fit.

    Hey, thank you for that ! It looks pretty good mate !

    Did you had to work on the "sadle" either on the mount or the rider ? It seems to fit quite well doesnt it ?

    I'm aware of the gaps in gamezone models, but it indeed seems quite big looking at the GS there !

    So you ordered only the spares for the raptor, it's quite cheap like so I guess ?

    I you cut the saddle of the mount and file the saurus will fit perfectly, I ordered with the dark elf rider so I could use him for a far gone project.

    Sorry to necro, but since GZ sells parts individually, how would just a headswap look? (GZ raptor head on a GW cold one)
