Yeah, I’d have linked Red Box (because they’re exactly what you’re after) but you already mentioned them in your original post. In my vague dreams of turning my Chaos Warriors into a Barbarian Horde, Red Box figures feature quite heavily.
i was wondering how hard it would be to use lizardemn bodies and cut the legs off and sculpt a tail, mod the heads a little.
-could that work?
i've seen something like that in a White Dwarf once... although i was quite some time ago. the army (there was a whole army pictured, although i'm unsure if they were all converted) used the older saurus models as a basis, legs removed and tails sculpted... looked like a lot of work to me back then.
