I'm new here and a returning player to the game (played 3rd edition,) so I apologize if I say something stupid ahead of time.
So, I am about to undertake a conversion for my new exodite themed eldar army. It was mentioned in the codex fluff that the exodites frequently follow the megadons (dragons) migratory patterns. After reading this, and seeing the new high elf dragon sculpt, I have decided it would befit my farseer to ride a dragon in place of a jetbike. The dragon would "count as" the jetbike of course.
Now, I have two main questions.
Firstly, how would Line of Sight work with the conversion? If my the conversions base (roughly the width of a standard jetbike) is behind whatever its hiding behind, would this technically count as being out of sight? OR if my opponent saw a good portion of, lets say, the dragons wing, but not the base, would this count as having Line of Sight because you can visibly see the model?
Secondly, how do "count as" conversions like this work in tournaments? Cant use em? Can use em? I also have a couple warlocks riding jetbikes in my list, and I don't like the way the majority of warlock jetbike conversions turn out. So, I was thinking about taking the regular warlock model, and having him stand on top of the heavy weapons platform in the gaurdians box set, and having this "count as" a jetbike. If my dragon conversion failed, I would most likely use this same approach for my farseer.
Thanks for any help!
The general approach for most tournaments has been leaning toward "You should have a copy of the 'regular' sized model on hand to sub in if an opponent objects." As long as your hover boarding warlocks are about the same height as one riding a jetbike, that should be fine. The dragon is so much more massive than a bike I can see where it might be an issue for some people.
Interesting, because you mention a dragon and on page 16 concerning' Line of Sight' it states that 'wings and tail' do not effect LOS.
Its purely the body and most definitely not every part of the model, so if said body is roughly the same as the jetbike hull then the argument against is going to be pretty thin.
Obviously the tournament organiser will have the last say in all of this but just prompt them with 'wings and tail' thing.
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
