Well basically, I want to use my carnisaur as a beast in WH40k, but also have it be mounted for my Oldblood lord in fantasy. So, I have assembled both the lord and the saur seperately, and painted the saur already. But I don't know how to temporarily mount the oldblood on the carnisaur each game, without ruining the paintjob. Anybody know if sticky tac will work, or is there something else better, or what?

Pssst.... give me kudos....
Maybe a hot swapable pin system.
Mount a small section of square brass rod where both the riders butts meet the carni, make sure its flush with the surface on both riders.
Then use a a slightly samller/thinner, small enough to go in to the riders section, but big enough not to be to loose, have it extend from the carni enough that it fits in to the sleeve, but also short enough that it doesnt elevate the rider off the carni at all.
If any of that makes sense. :wacko:

id go for pinning. Pin a hole in the lords butt and carnis back, then just a a rod holding it together. If you think the hole in the back is a problem, just make some sort of scaly thing, maybe a tyranid armour shell or something that also has a tube in it to fit over the other spot.

Or if the carnie isn't painted yet, a magnet set into the back of the beast, and the bottom of your rider. Once the magnet is smoothed over with putty and painted, you'll never see it.

As you have painted the 'Saur already a magnet would be difficult to attach without damaging the paint job. That said, If you don't mind painting over the area again, attaching a magnet to the 'saur (and one to the rider) would be the best way of achieving the desired effect. Have a look in the articles section for information on how to go about this.
If you want a really easy way to make the model swappable then a pin would be the way to go. Drill a hole in the 'saur and the rider, glue the wire into the rider, and just slot the him on when you want him. There would be a small hole in the 'saur but this should not be too obvious.
If you wanted to use blu-tac or a similar substance then you should varnish the model first. Blu-tac can pull paint off pretty much anything it is stuck to, so could end up ruining your paint job. With varnish this is far less likely making blu-tac a more feasible option for temporarily attaching a rider to the 'saur.
Hope this helps...
