What about a Lich King skin for Reinhardt?

General Discussion
I think Lich King would be a great skin for Reinhardt, he would look badass. Crusader Reinhardt looks like Prince Arthas so Lich King is a good skin idea for Reinhardt.
Here is an image of Lich King in case you don't know how he looks like (hearthstone artwork):

Idk, Crusader Rein reminds me of Varian Wrynn. Rest his soul.

Reinhardt can't get a skin with a sword because that would require changing his animations.

Maybe a modified hammer/axe?

Why would it require an animation change?

Because the way you hold a big hammer is vastly different to the way you hold a big sword.
Reinhardt the Lightbringer
They need a Ragnaros The Firelord skin for Reinhardt

Yknow I figured Reinhardt would get the Blackhand skin, but it works for Doomfist too.

could easily make it into a zweihander, with the handle of the sword being fairly large. I recognize that it would take away from the aesthetic of Frostmourne but it would be possible to incorporate with his existing animations.

Half-swording would kind of defeat the point of him getting a sword in the first place, considering you are just using it in the same way a hammer is used.

He better have unique voice lines like "I am a Crusader Insect!!"
LK skin would rule!

Rofl, weapons aren't individually animated. They're just boxes with graphics in the developer screen.

Yeah, nobody holds a sword by the middle of the blade. It would be absolutely terrible.
