Hay guys just wondering do you or can you use Lemartes as a normal chaplain I like they model and I would like to use him in my army any feed back would be much appreciated
I was under the impression you could definatly use him, the commander of my army is a mini converted Chief Librarian Mephiston. And nobody has any problems when we play that he is used as a commander instead of a librarian. In a friendly game i'm sure that you could use him, in a tournament i would think it would be allowed but as i have never played in one i can't say for sure.
Sure, I use some models like the Shrike model in order to represent regular Commanders and such from time to time.
That should be fine, both for friendly games and for tournements. As it states on the Games Day rules from last year "All models must be fully painted Citadel minatures of the appropriate type for the troops they represent". Since Lemartes is a Chaplain to begin with you can use his model as a normal Chaplain if you like... now, what I would stay away from is if you didnt use the two weapons on Lemartes for your Chaplain. Since he is shown with a Crozius and a bolt pistol I would stick to that rather then saying he has something else.
Edit: Forgot to add it also states "Any armor, weapons or upgrades must be modeled on the model in question". So if you use the weapons on Lemartes for your Chaplain I think you are golden.

I wouldnt necessarily say that since I dont know what you model your Commander as and what weapons they have (and whats on the sheet), but a fair rule to go by "if you have it on your character, it should be modeled on the board" (WYSIWYG - what you see is what you get) and you can never go wrong.
For example there are some characters that dont have models, like Belial. I have 2-3 models for him, 1 with Lightning Claws, 1 with Storm Bolter/Power Weapon, and one 1 that I am still working on. He is of course in Terminator Armor, that's a given, but if I wanted him to have a pair of claws I definitely wouldnt have him standing out there with a sword and bolter.
Now, playing friendly games, go buck wild. Play test to your hearts content. Just be warned that even though folks might say its ok, when they start losing and they start wondering which model is which things can do downhill fast... that's why I try to stick with WYSIWYG.
Personally as long as you say at the start of the game "i know it looks like lemartes but its not" you should be okay. Being that your using it in a different chapter it shouldn't be an issue.
As for Librarian as Commander... that could be different as mephiston has a psychic hood and notably looks like a librarian and could be confused as a standard librarian. Though again, if you say something it should be a problem.
This is more of a sportsman ship issue than a rule issue, you'd hate to get them confused.
If I was to use a special character as someone else, I would convert them somehow. For Mephiston I'd swap his sword (as its obviously mephistons), plasma pistol (unless using it as one) and head (this will help create a unique model).
Much must be risked in war.
