Both St. Dismas and the Holy Innocents died during the old dispensation.

Arguing for baptism of desire or baptism of blood from examples in the Old Testament is besides the point. All the righteous of the Old Testament went down to linger in hades waiting for Christ, where they would be preached at and baptised after His death on the cross. That's why we believe He descended to hell after death and proclaim it in the creed.
