k i am think of converting a choas sorceror i kind of want him to be tzeetch because he was kown as lupercus (one who wards off wolves)which works good because 1k sons hate the space wolfs and tzeetch want change and life.i am basing him on the greek god pan (god of nature who also wants life) hes going to be riding a giant palnt with three heads his bodyis going to be some what like a beastman. i havent deside what weapon to give him but pan has a magic flute in mythlogy which inspired fear in battle or sexulty. which brings me to my question should he be tzeetch or slaanesh
p.s i would have done a pole but i am kind of a noob

Definatly an interesting question you put out there...here's my two cents on the subject...
A good idea for a back story for your sorcerer could be that he was one of more successful psyker leiutenants that fought in that epic conflict that razed his homeworld. Ever since the Space Wolves 'betrayed' him, his Legion, and his Primarch, he willingly gave himself over to Chaos, as his Primarch did, so that he could hunt down and take revenge on the Space Wolves; earning his name Lupercus: The one who wards off wolves.
As far as the magic flute and such, go with it...not only is Tzeench the Changer of Ways, but he is the Architect of Fates and the God of Psykers and Magic, nothing is beyond him...including messing around with people's minds...fear and sexuality being apart of that.
My two cents is that You've got a good background goin for a Tzeenchian sorcerer, so go with it. I would stay away from anything 'natural' but go ahead and use the imagry of Pan all you want.
Good luck man!
Son of the Forge gives some good points on choosing. The choice is in the end yours. Despite what we will tell you you will see what Chaos God your army follows and so the sorcerer will have to follow the same deity... I would only like to highlight something...
Pan (mythology) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
And the idea of the three-headed plant although very original and unique and truly I haven't seen anything elsewhere I will say that reminds me of Kerverus the three-headed dog protector of Hades... Now it is ok but only if you try to give a mythological note to the whole army. Only to the sorcerer I won't think it is always so good...
If you try it I will be expecting to see pictures! :w00t:
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
ya wikipedia isnt always correct
p.s an had many attributes as a god. He was the god of goats, and sheep, and their shepherds. He was the god of bee keeping. He was also a god of music, playing upon the reed pipes he made from the transformed body of the nymph Syrinx (the one that got away). It was said that this music could inspire panic (the root of the word) in any who heard it. Sometimes he was a minor god of the sea. He was a god of prophesy and was also famous for being randy (Greek women with a track record were known as Pan girls). Above all he was the god of nature: meadows, forests, beasts, and even human nature
The Great God Pan
p.p.s about pan riding the plant it would like a teal blueish making him more tzeech looking and its heads are like venus fly traps but i do like the cerburus idea pretty sweet

Anywho.... this all sounds a little complex and advanced for a self-confessed noob (I know you mean on LO, but I'm guessing from your typing that you are fairly young, which is no bad thing, you've got lots to which to look forward! If I'm wrong, I apologise and scroll to the end.).
Don't get me wrong, it sounds cool. But perhaps you should go a little more conventional to start with. Get the basics down, then try something more advanced when you are more confident in your skills to do the concept justice.
Or, you can go ahead with it, but be sure to keep us posted.
