Greetings. New to game and seeking answer to noob question. My question is, if I have a unit of models (say 10 DE witch elfs for example) and I model/paint 3 of them as the command group - would i be able to play these as regular troopers (not command group) if i told the other player there were just regular troopers (or, for example, "i only have a musician, the bannerette and champions are just regular troopers)? Could I say this in tournament play and be ok or would the other player have to agree? How about for friendly games it is ok correct? Thanks for your help.
I regularly field units like corsairs with all 3 command models, even though there might not be a champion in the list. The opponent really has no right to force you to replace them with regular models.
on the flipside, you do need models to have what they are supposed to have.
-a unit of 10 witch elves, with 3 of which are the command models, but you only have a standard bearer in the list. Thats fine
-a unit of 10 witch elves made entirely of regular troopers but has the command models in the list, is probably not ok.
You can get away with using a regular troop as a champion. But for musician and standard bearers, they really should be holding a standard or instrument.
In short, yes its fine lol.

As long as noone gets too confused it's ok. :shifty:
(and you should remove those models first if the unit suffers casualties to make things more clearly)
Another trick might be to place such models not in the first rank. That should make it quite obvious to anyone that the respective models are just proxying for a regular trooper.
Though a Standard in the last rank does look funny, admittedly :rolleyes: (but again, removing them first if casualties occur fixes that, too)
