I was Just wondering about how people feel about stand'in models. I don't mean when your oppoenant say's 'oh, and by the way, my SM commander only counts as a normal Termie for this game'. The reason i am asking is because i have some self converted roughriders that i want to use. They consist of:
- Normal cadian torsos (head, legs, body, left arm, right chainsword arm with no weapon)
- Chainsword replaced with hunting lancce made of wire and a green stuff blob on the end.
- No horses. Elysian jump packs instead.
Is it okay to use stand'ins in normal games? Would you feel better if i gave rational excuses for the models?
I find the concept of horses in 40K hard to rationalise. The jump packs offer the speed and fleet and the hunting lances are just some C4 on a stick. Do any of you use stand'ins reguarly?
Wow, i write a lot.
Thanks for your opinion.
*Edit* In reply to crispin, my RRs are on normal infantry bases.

i wouldnt have a problem with you useing that in a game, however other might.
overall though you should be fine.
Personally I wouldn't have a problem. You have given a valid reason for why you use them, and so long as you give them the same stats as a normal rough rider, I wouldn't have a problem. My beef is when people create units and give them over the top stats, but using normal stats with different models would be fine with me!
Personally again, I would have no problems at all with your use of these rough riders, especially seeing as you have justified them fluff wise. Sound pretty cool to me really.
One issue you may have however, is the base sizes. Rough riders would be mounted on bike bases, or large circular as compared to normal infantry bases, this affects the numbers of men in contact and such, and while not really an issue, in my experience, someone will point it out eventually, so be prepared mate.
