Ive been trying to find this awnser from all around and no one can fully awnser it for me.
Is it legal in high level tournaments to use converted models?
for example...I convert normal necron soldier into immortals...would I be able to use these immortals as immortals in a tournament if they look nearly/exactly like immortals?
Im asking this because I am now the gamesworkshop official at my local store and am in charge of close to 25 people who play fantasy and 40k and I know the rules for fantasy and 40k to heart including the FAQ's online so I have no problem with that but soon im going to be running tournaments for people who want to go higher into the warhammer buisness and eventualy go on to higher prestige tournaments than our stores.
I just need to know if converted models are allowed...and if they are do they have to be exactly the same size as the orginal models because of line of sight rules.
I would appreciate an awnser for both fantasy and 40k if possible.
As far as the size thing, both Adepticon and Warhammer World say the models are allowed but players must cooperate and make a best effort to treat it as though it were the 'real' model if their opponent feels an advantage has been gained through modeling.
For what constitutes a legal conversion, basically it just has to not look like something else that has official rules. As long as no one is going to mistake your immortals for necron warriors or pariahs or something, you're fine. They don't even have to look like real immortals, as long as there is no reason to think an opponent would be confused. That is the basis of "Counts-as."
‘Conversions’ according to GW mean that the miniature must start out as a Citadel miniature.
‘Counts as’ mean that the model must be roughly the same size as the original, you must be consistent throughout your army and you must be clear with your opponent prior to the game.
So taking an existing Citadel miniature, converting it to be a like size replica of another model should be no problem as long as it is clear what is going on here.
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
thank you so much. I will use these guidelines for my rules.
I had this thread on the fantasy side and got nearly the same awnsers I was just making sure.
I also wanted to start this thread because the necron army I have has 20 immortals in it that I converted and I wanted to use them so badly but I didnt want to break any rules
