If I had any customizing skills, I'd "steal" your idea. But I'd make him an updated Sgt Major, Destro's right hand man. With that kind of body armour he can lead the Iron Grenadiers that I'll be army building when those bad boys get released. I hope.
Awesome work by the way.

That looks really cool man. It's funny you're doing that, I just bought a terrible IG custom off of Ebay. Not only does it suck, it took 26 days to get the thing. I'd post pics but on the off chance he's tank member I'm not trying to make him feel bad.

Sergeant Major is the senior non-commissioned officer in a unit. In WWII the Canadian army had Company, Battalion and Regimental Sergeants Major; I believe the British Army still does. And of course Destro's forces are based on British Army structure and doctrine.
Having said all that - especially with the sabre, he's not a regular Grenadier. Only Highlanders have ever issued swords to the rank-and-file, and I don't think they still do (even for Mess Dress). So he's too important (and too cool) to be just a Grenadier. Sar'Major is a good role for him.
I'm now considering actually buying a Serpentor...

Well, I'm confident that there will be a new IG figure. I just kind of went for it. And yes, I had the ol' Sgt. Major in mind when I finished him (as I knew there was no way I could make an army of these).
I'm glad that the Sgt. Major has such a loyal following!
Are you listening Hasbro??
