This one is a quick one, that I'm not too sure about it.
In the rules, it says that any equipment given to a person must be modeled on it (like having to actually put purity seals on people, and not just saying they have them), and I was just curious, does it work the other way too?
By that I mean, can I put things on the model, and not actually have the equipment?
Ex, one of my troops has purity seals on his plasma gun (because it looks beautiful with them) but he doesn't actually have purity seals in his stats. Another example is I gave powerfist to another troop, and cut it up and filed it down, making it look like the powerfist has broken from use. Because of it being "broken", it doesn't actually count as a powerfist in combat, but at a glance, it looks like the model has one.
I really need to know about this rule, because I'm going to battle with a obsessive rules person. :wacko:
Thanks for any info!
Well, the text book answer is the model must follow WYSIWYG.
However, I have NEVER seen someone complain (or even notice) that a model has grenades, or purity seals, or some other stupid little thing that can make the model look cool, and not have it in its stats.
However, I would be vary carefull of the power fist.
I guess the rule I would use is this... if the offending piece is worth 5 points or less, it's not that important that it be modeled, or modeled but not paid for.
However, weapons are pretty important that they are accurate on the model. Because even if you tell him it's not really a powerfist, if it looks like it, by turn 3 or 4 he will have forgotten, and when making battlefiled decisions will look at the model and think...powerfist.
