it would be visual only
although a chaos steed and a cold one have very similar properties, and are indistinguishable per rules, save for the fear. good thing chaos knights cause fear.

Cold ones are not a problem. Rules won't be changed though, it is purely a visual thing.

Stegadon is going to be harder. Using it as a dragon will be hard unless you model wings. maybe you can use is as a warshrine. just put a chaos altar on top of it

And the stupidity! So really it's a good thing it would only be cosmetic as using the actual Cold One rules would only make the unit worse.

I actually intent to use the new Steggie for the warshrine (one big warshrine indeed), and I've got two chaos chariots modeled out of the old steggie, by adding a custom made howdah on top. You can check them out in my log if you like.

Holy jeebus ALL of your armies are pretty!

I thought the same when i looked at the new steggie - the EotG is already shrine line, just add some more chaos elements and it will be done really....and its about right for the shrine

This is the first time I hear anybody suggesting the stegadon for a warshrine - but that sounds like a splendid idea! Having seen the list of parts in WD, it seems to provide plenty of modelling opportunities, and you can always pass the skink crew for some local lizardmen player for use as ordinary skinks.

Then a bit of conversion work (trophies, chaos icons, skulls, spiky bits, a few marauders and a chaos warrior for crew etc.) and a suitable paint job and Khorne is your daddy! Perhaps you could even try to make the steggie itself to look like a gigantic juggernaut or chaos spawn!

I'll be working on a similar project soon. I'll be working on chaos lizardmen; (the ones from the dragon isles who've lost their slaan and gone ferel.) When I do that, I'll be using Stegs without any howdah weapons as chariots and and EOTG one for a warshine.
