    WYSIWYG weapons

    How do tourneys look upon using a weapon, like a thunder hammer, but only saying its a ccw in your list? Is this still legal for wysiwyg? I would think a weapon can be downgraded all you want, just not vice versa...

    It is alright unless you have other thunderhammers that look the same, but are actually thunderhammers.

    The key is that the appearance of your weapons should not cause confusion. So if all the hammers in your force are actually just CCWs then you're OK. If some are CCWs but some others are TH then you have a problem.

    Your opponent must be able to visually tell the difference between weapons, especially power/special weapons and non-power weapons.

    What if there are some TH as ccw, and reg ccw? (and this eems like a good idea, if it works, as the oponent might think hes going up against some badass special weapon, but its really just a ccw...)

    That's the whole point of WYSIWYG, you should not be confused by what the model weapon represents. So if you have one type of model representing two types of weapons, you are not abiding by WYSIWYG.

    ALL your hammers that look the same must represent the same weapon type. If you were to paint the TH a glowing power weapon look while the non-TH were painted plain metal then it would be OK.

    Remember its a game and not a combat simulation, so the opponent is supposed to know which models have power weapons and which don't, which have rifles and which have pistols. It may not be realistic to be able to determine the range capability of the shooting model, or which model would be best to kill first if you can, but those are the rules.

    This is exactly how I do it, and a lot of people I know. All of the power weapons in my army, regardless of form (sword, axe, hammer, etc) have glowing blue blades. All the ccw in my army have plain metallic blades. Force weapons have glowing blue with a lightning pattern on it. Thunder hammers have a slightly different scheme than regular power weapons, but are still identifiable as neither power weapons nor ccw. It's a good method to unite a varied army such as a CSM force where you could have all kinds of weapon models across the army.
