Well, this was going to be my entry in the conversion contest taking place in the Order of the Shadowy Flame; however, the contest required pre-paint and post-paint pictures, and I don't have the money to buy the paint to paint him!
So, I decided to post here. Please note that these are my first "serious" attempts at conversion, as well as first "serious" attempts at taking model pictures for any reason other than to just sell them ... done with a digital camera, bad lighting, and only basic photo editting software. So, naturally, they aren't the best ever. :tongue:
My inspiration: http://uk.games-workshop.com/downloa.../xenos-big.jpg
 Catachan Guardsman head
 Cadian Guardsman body
 Cadian Guardsman Laspistol arm
 Cadian Heavy Weapons Crew Binoculars Arm
 Kislev (I think) horse riding legs
 Lance (bitz order)
 Packet of Green Stuff
 Empire Handgunner rifle
 Tau Firewarrior packs
So, without further adieu (note: images are relatively large!):
Kashann Xeno Rider - Whole
Kashann Xeno Rider - Whole 2
Kashann Xeno Rider - Back
Kashann Xeno Rider - Front and Close
if you use the coldone's you could make a really nice rough rider unit. besides that you seem like your onto a nice start. how about some bitz from men at arms/mounted yeoman in fantasy. they give a nice wwII armored torso/look

You could probobly use it as a Carnasour of a Megasour...but as a Xenos mount, I think it looks too big.
But thats game terms. In conversion terms...it's nice. Looks like a pretty good and neat conversion, although without clearer pics it's hard for me to tell.
from the concept picture you have done a decent job (again the pictures, but on that im just as bad:rolleyes: ).
the only thing i really dont like is the head, if you had tapered the neck a bit with gs then you would have been able to fit a cold ones head on the neck instead (but again i never liked that head so i have a predisposed biase to that head so feel free to ignore this if you wish).
why a fantasy lance?
when the guard have their own one from the rough riders.
all in all a nice model though, and as for using it in a game why not? Just use the rules for the jugernaught of khorne.

For the Carnosaur, you mean? The whole body was a whole big metal piece; head to tail. I'd have had to cut the head off, and I think the Cold One heads are a bit too small for the Carnosaur body.
I used the fantasy lance because 1) it was easy to bit order and 2) I liked the way it looked.
Looks good! I have always liked the Carnosaur.
Looks good man, pix are a bit blurred though
Might have been nice to have the lance down, in more of a charging pose, or more obviously raised above his head in a shout of victory kindof thing.
But yeah, nice one.

Would have been terribly hard to model, I think ... I sort of imagine him, in his current pose, as just riding along with his pistol and lance at rest, but at a slight ready as well, in case the charge is going to come up soon. And of course, the Carnosaur is just being a giant reptile and roaring at stuff. :sleep:Originally Posted by minus_t
