|Just say no....|
I consider this conversion a total win, not only for desecrating the beloved tyrant's fancy weapon, but for the compositional oomph it gives the visual movement of this model and the visual interest it adds.
I used the standard unit leader shield, made the simple pinned weapon swap and then cleaned up the weapon haft with a little green stuff and used some to make a hood as well.
A swap like this also still fits in the PP conversion limitations as the "Battle Weapon" in their profile needs to be a reach weapon and beyond that has no specific weapon type associated with it.
