Okay so I don't have the new 'dex yet but I'm looking to convert my existing models prior to getting the 'dex so they are ready to go for the release.
Is it safe for me to convert 7 models out of a 10 man CSM squad with a combination of boltpistols/bolters/mutated limbs (representing h+h weapons) and then splice them with the fantasy zombie boxed set (to represent MoN or Plaguemarines)?
This leaves me the three remaining members to kit out with special/heavy/champion options when I can get my hands on the book.
Am I safe to convert the models in this fashion without seeing the codex?
Well, I think you should be.
Everyone gets a boltpistol AND a bolter. Mutated limbs... it doesn't count as Daemonic mutation anymore, heh. You could opt for a squad of Chaos marines with an Icon of Nurgle which only gives em additional toughness and makes them lesser plague marines (for about the same price ) in fact, tough with the option to bear the real heavy stuff as opposed to current Nurgle.
