Default Joker conversion

I just saw the Dark knight last knight and was extremely impressed. I though after the movie that it would be great to base an army around a joker centerpiece. I am currently about to start an eldar army and I though the Joker could work as a Farseer (psychic powers would be represented by his ability to plan ahead and such). Plus he would have the switchblade witchblade.

I am currently searching for a model to start my conversion off of. I ordered a kal jericho necromunda model, which will be the beginning of one of my conversions, however I am curious if anyone knows of any miniature web sites, which might have a model in a suit. I know there are other miniature games out there, and I am assuming one of them would have a model wearing some sort of suit. As you guys know Fantasy, 40k and lotr don't have many suite wearing models.

Thanks for any help you can provide

Use the Witch Hunter Inquisitor and change the weapons. He suddenly has a trench coat!

The Joker does wear a trench coat!

only... his is stuffed with grenades... and knives... and detnators...

on his base you should write around the edge "why so serious?"... And his body guard should all have clown faces. instead of wave serpents, have school busses...

ok, im gettin carried away...

Why don't you make him a Harlequin troupe leader?

I thought about the witch hunter inquisitor, but the Kal jericho model seemed a bit better to me. I also thought about making him a harlequin, however I'm not a big fan of them in gaming terms, prefering the other Eldar cc units like howling banshees.

Does anybody know of any alternate miniature sites? I also like the idea of writing "why so serious" on his base >

Plus the mask isn't that good.

yea, I did consider the death jester and the harlquin troop master. It seemed to me that their faces would not work as they are wearing masks, and their jackets have collars that are too big.

I would suggest you guys look up kal jericho on the GW site. his suit jacket seems perfect to me and his head could be slightly converted to be his face. I would just need to get rid of some of the hair, although his sideburns would work as scars perfectly for the makup around his mouth.

I guess at this point I am looking for something to use as the Joker w/out his Jacket on. So he would be just wearing his inner jacket and long sleeve shirt. I could sculpt a tie and collar on something. I was mulling over using some lotr Ruffians for this. As they seem to have a jacket like appearance.

That is what I am thinking. I found a few decent models from a gangster mini game, however they were not very detailed and the size didn't look right.

I am thinking that I will probably have to scult the jacket or inside jacket and tie onto a model. If I can find something with one or the other I should be set.
