It is a Dark Angel Librarian, Made from Dark Angels Bike kit, Black Knights kit and some chaos space marine bits, With Green stuff on the legs, painted and based, took (not counting drying time) about 3 hours to completely do. LOL I know I am a slow painter :D

Base is just some thin Cork Board, sand and primed black, dry brush dark grey, then lighter gray and painted yellow road lines.

Hmmm, I did just buy a chaos socrorer that I was thinking of modifying...
Exactly how much conversion work needs to be done on a mini for it to be acceptable? I assume swapping a head isn't enough?
Is green stuff use required?

Conversion:
It's really simple, a Chaos Sorcerer Lord from WH Fantasy, I cut the top off the staff and swapped it with a banner top from the Chaos Warrior box.
Exchanged the head for a slightly trimmed chaos warrior helmet with the horns cut off.

will hopefully be painted this weekend.

Looks good! I love that you gave him an enclosed helmet to remind people that Sorcerers have Chaos Armor. By remind, I mean rub it in their face :)
