As I really don't like the Emperor's Champion model and know nothing about converting, I was thinking about getting the Dark Angels' Ezekiel (swapping swords, removing books, painting appropriately) and using him as a Champion. Would doing so be legal with regards to tournaments?
Black Templar (3000)
Imperial Guard (1500 and growing)
Hmmm well the emperors champion dosnt actually count as a special character so it dosnt have to be the specific character, so technically if you convert it with anything that looks remotely like it , kinda like i did with chaos lord giving him archaons sword and a random Rune and modified his armour to make it look like the daemonic upgrade ive seen a few emperors champion modification , i dont see any problems unless it says so in tournament rules
The “counts as” rule is basically for models of the same size and function, and is especially useful for using older models that are no longer in the range and therefore not covered in the army list.
If you are going to use the “counts rule” you must agree with your opponent before hand on what it is, notify any tournament director and not use the same model as something else in your army as well.
But what the heck, if it’s a friendly game then who really cares? Its only when the games’ outcome will really matter that it can be a bit confusing to all and sundry.
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
I've seen Azrael used as an Emperor's champion. As long as you replace the combi weapon, he's wywiswyg. He can't be confused with Azrael since it's not a Dark Angels army.
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
