While the new supreme sorceress model is quite nice, it's very... well, much I guess. And the other old ones doesn't really appeal to me the least. but thing is I need to have one supreme and one ordinary sorceress for my army, and while I can live with the supreme model I need an alternative for the lower standing one.

So, do anyone have suggestions for other models to use and convert? I'm reasonably skilled when it comes to conversions and working with greenstuff and don't mind doing some converting.

Edit:
Found some weird Female Fantasy Football game which has a team of "wicked elves" which has some models that perhaps could fit the bill: I e scantily clad female dark elves. Also contained bunny team, elf team and nun team... Least to say some weird models that could be called sexistic, but also funny.

Edit 2:
Links to models that I'm wondering if one can use.

With a bit of converting of course.

Edit 3:
Funny how many new models that are really nice that you can find once you start looking =)

Avatars of War if you don't mind boobies.

Alternativly look on ebay and you might find the Dark Elf sorcerer circa 1994. Hes cool.

While my favourite sorceress model, by far, is the current 'floaty' cast, my first model (and still a regular in my armies) was the old plastic Talisman sorceress (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/oop-dark-elf-sorceress-warhammer-quest-talisman-/200508584745?pt=UK_Toys_Wargames_RL).

If it has to be a female then id go for one of the reapers already posted or maybe a slightly converted high elf everqueen if you can find one.

Personally i just use males (dark emissary and high elf plastic mage on foot) malekith can go jump in a volcano for all i care lol. That said i kind of use it as a rebellious type force going agaisnt malekith with blackguards as just elite bodyguards etc.

@Avian: is that a Chris Fitzpatrick sculpt? She looks very much like a Wych, inlcuding the sixpack. I think she wants to be one of my Archons...

That Reaper mini is very nice, too. The "wicked elves" look like they're pretty bad sculpts, IMO.

That reaper mini is great, and if you do a quick search on their site you should find some other good ones as well.

Good to know, I usually like his Elves a lot.

You could use one of the woodelf mages painted up "darkelvishly". The one kind of floating on a branch is a good candidate, and works nicely with the LoS as she is raised higher than a normal DE mage.

Gamezone miniatures http://www.gamezoneminiatures.de/ has a sorceress with familiar which looks more like a lower level sorceress.

Its one thing to rip of a name and its one thing to rip of a look. But both at the same time? How the hell do these guys get away with it. Its not like there trying to be subtle or anything!

I apologise for the offtopic, but is Lunah actually the appropriate size to be fielded in fantasy? I always thought the model looked abit too big, but I've never seen it put along side a model.

I bought one from Freebooter, and another one from Raging Heroes. Both are pretty cool.

There are some quite nce suggestions being added here, and I think I might go with avatars of war top-less dark elf sorceress for one of them (do not mind boobs ;)). For the other I'll have to think a bit. But please don't stop with the suggestions =)

Just for Yunaris,

They usually our and she is slightly taller than a normal model standing...

BUT

How she stands on the tree part (which you get with it) makes her fit perfectly. The tree even fits on a small square base and she fits in my units fine (sadly dont have a pic of her in a unit atm but here is one of her

In the same way GWs "Dark Elves" are not rip offs of TSR "Drow" etc, etc, ad infinitum

Its a different name, unlike gamezones Empire being the Empire (why not Imperium, Reichzland, Deutchreich, any of the hundred and one alternative ways of saying empire), Dark Elves being Dark Elves (why not Black Elves, Norns, Delves???). Theres many ways of doing exactuly what GW does without making so ******* odviouse.
