While making a army list for my New night lords army i thought that a steed would be great to fit in with the quickness of night lords. Good fluff and it makes the lord pretty good for only 25 points.
So i need a demonic looking horse. I found a nice model called "Mouth of Sauron"
And mostly he will have either a pair of lightning claws (Which was easy to find) Or a dark blade and a pistol. So For the dark blade i can't really find much. The codex says it can be any form of weapon not just a blade....could someone find me a nice one handed weapon for the dark blade?
Bolt pistol is easy to get...
For the body i was thinking just a normal space marine torso with maybe a few more demonic looking icons and stuff. The head i havn't choosen yet so maybe just the chaos lord head?
So my problem now is finding a good set of legs for him. It has to be one that can fit the horse no doh, and also have some armor or something on it to make it look like the lord.
So the whole point of this was to ask what should i use for legs, a dark blade, and would this idea work well? Would it be a nice conversion?
Be careful with that horse! LOTR models are a bit smaller than warhammer and 40k models. Another cool horse you might want to try is Archaon's(wfb).
http://store.us.games-workshop.com/s...898&GameNav=13 the Archaon chap. Infact if you get the model, strap a pack over his cloak with som subes ans stuff, you can make your lord from that model. You would also have to change weapons, but that's easy.
anyway, good luck.
Sadly, LOTR is a smaller scale and using it wouldnt work. It would look more like a miniature pony than a mighty war steed. The Archaon was a good idea, perhaps you can use prince tryions sword for a weapon, it would be kewl to paint it black w/ purple runes imo.
Archaon's horse is pretty savage, use the horse and the legs from the archaon model. then you can buil a plastic marine upper torso and green stuff it to the legs. For the head find a marine head you like then grab some bat wings and glue them to his head, or you can take the aspiring champions head from the night lord box set. For the Dark blade u can try out the slaanesh champion on steed's weapon or archaons sword as its pretty wicked looking, i'm using it on my dark apostle.

The cypher model comes with a nifty sword too. You should just pace up and down through the GW site and see what takes your fancy. I think if you look in the fantasy section at something like the weapon the Slaaneshi chap has that would be cool. The codex depicts the blade as being black and the grip is rich, so something like the Slaanesh weapon would be nice, it has a long grip which you can beautify with skull and other symbolism, but with a rather plain blade.
