Default A good sorcerer model? or just a waste of time (and money)

Here's the thing, I've seen the new necromancer model for LOTR, and it came to me, "he'd look cool as a sorcerer", so after some research, i came up with a idea, get the necromancer model, give him a sword, and paint him the army colours (i think keeping the black parts on him would be good)

Although he doesn't have any power armour modeled onto him, it could be done, well i looked closely and realised he already had some on ( not the most brilliant armour I've ever seen :P)

And now i have put here three points why the necromancer model would be good as a Chaos Sorcerer (note this is and idea for a creation):
  • 1:He looks magical
    2:His pose is great
    3:Add a staff or a sword, and you got yourself a Sorcerer

[glow=red,2,300]P.s: Yes i do read the LOTR section of White Dwarf[/glow]

It wouldn't be tournament legal, I'm afraid... the whole LoTR-WH bitzing legal issue (what's the deal with that, anyway?).

i had the same idea, but wouldn't it be better if you could just find the right peices and build it yourself? greenstuff cape, ahriman helmet minus the dangly bits, classic raptor champion body, it would kick boot.

Mirmax (or whoever distributed/licensed LotR) Wanted to keep the LotR franchise very seperate and clearly different than GW's previoulsy established uinverse. That's why when LotR was first released it was at the back of White Dwarf, upside down and backwards.

It's also why you can't mix and match bitz in any official games.

I dont think it would look that good, you could probably make a better model yourself

id got the feeling that theyd managed to make it legal to use it, and thats why they're releasing the components seperately, and anyway ive never seen in writing or officially that LOTR components are illegal in tounament games. Theyre not advertising it much

lol, when i read the title i thought that said 'soccer model' anyways:

wouldn't it be odd that your sorcerer didn't have power armour?

Anyone else considered changing the head and using it as a Necron lord with Veil of Darkness?
