in friendly game do you think i could make a daemon prince for my iron warriors who uses the suaron from lord of the rings as the base. i know that you are not supposted to use lord of the ring figures in 40k, but do you think people would really care in a friendly game.
it has to do with the IP agreement they have with the rights holders (New Line?). You cannot mix the minis (that is one of the reason why they are true 28 mm).
So for official tournaments you cannot mix them. What you do in friendlies is of course entirely up to you.
I would have though that someone working at a GW would know that and would tell you that.
Shut up and play.
Alex, I dont' see why you couldn't use a LoTR model for 40k as long as everything is represented the way it should be. The only rules about models in tourneys is that everything has to be either from Games-workshop or, 80+ percent of the model must be from GW.
Since GW produces LoTR I don't see why it would be a no-no.
As far as friendly games, well, I personally wouldn't care as long as you don't use, say, a kai gun on him when he obviously doen't have a weapon that could possibly represent it.
W/D/L Eleventy trillion billion/NONE/ NONE - I am STILL rulezor!
WINDMILLS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!
