    So you made a Troglodon and wondered what to do with the left over spare Saurus bits....
    1. First you think to make an Oldblood and Scar-Veteran also ride the Troglodon but then you realise the Troglodon Spine gets in the way of the Throne seat.
    2. Secondly you think to make an Oldblood AND a Sunblood on foot but for some obscure reason the kit only comes with ONE Saurus body and ONE set of Saurus legs (non mounted! Yes there is a second set of mounted Saurus legs)
    3. Thirdly you realise magnets are awesome and they will help you create a single Saurus Hero model with various weapon options so you can use him both as an Oldblood and a Sunblood!
    You are going to need the following:
    • 2mm x 1mm neodymium magnets (Buy from Ebay or any other online shop)
    • drill and 2mm drill bit
    • the usual other hobby stuff; super glue, scalpel, etc...
    • and the plastic bits shown below
    Pieces used from the Carnosaur Kit (You can use the alternate heads, chest plates and head top options):

    Pieces used from the Saurus Knight kit:

    What to do:
    1. Cut out all the Saurus bits.
    2. Cut the at the wrist of the two Saurus weapons from the Saurus Knight Kit (so they are hand and weapon only, like the Saurus weapons in the Carnosaur Kit). Make sure you get the angle of the cut the similar for all five weapons.
    3. Super Glue a magnet to the wrist of each of the five weapons. Make sure you align the magnets in the same polar direction!
    4. Drill a 2mm deep hole into the right forearm starting from the wrist. Make sure you are careful to drill right down the middle. Why 2mm? So two magnets fit snuggly inside!
    5. Super Glue a magnet inside the drilled hole. Make sure you align it correctly so the magnets from the weapons are attracted and not repelled!
    6. Once the Super Glue has dried. Test out your new weapons!

    Fantastic tutorial! Really great info.

    You can also use a regular saurus body, give it the chest plate, and mounted legs and make your scar-vet on cold one.

    Thanks guys.

    I thought about this also. I think I dumped it in the too hard basket thinking that the regular Saurus Warrior bodies were too small in comparison but perhaps the Saurus Guard bodies are ok. Also that the chest piece and the regular Saurus body needs some shaving to get it to fit.

    I might have another look at it as I would love to get some extra use out of those spare heads, arms, weapons, chest, mounted legs... Just need that damned body! Why couldn't they put 2 in there instead of 3 head top options and 3 heads!?
