I have a very small Witch Hunter Army. I am considering adding an Exorcist or 2. But I do not want the actula model at this time. Could I use a Whirlwind model in place of an Exorcist without an objection from an opponent? The Whirlwind can be had for less than an Exorcist and could be used in a Space Marine Army.
Well, that pretty much depends on your opponent! Basically, if you look at the Forge World model, it's kinda close and a friend or a friendly casual gamer in your local store will probably let you pass, but I wouldn't even dare showing up at a tourney with it.
Also the paint job would hinder a multi-usage between a WH and SM army. (unless your two armies have the exact same color pattern^^)
I got one of my exorcist at a sellout for almost half the price (since nobody seems to plays Sisters around here), if it is your second army anyway, just keep your eyes open for cheap offers!
Also depending on where you live and the current exchange rates, the Forge World model might be even cheaper than the original tank.
One of my game friends did not like the idea though he would let me do it. Yes the Forge World Model would be cheaper if shipping was not included.
I took an immolator and mounted the old metal whirlwind missile launcher. None of my friends complained and used it in a local tourney that was wysiwg. So I am happy with it.
I am sorry but how can someone say "no" to a model that was properly customized with proper WYSIWYG weapons?!? That is PART OF THE HOBBY!
I use three Exorcist and each one is different. As a matter of fact, only on of them is "the proper" GW model. Another one is a Whirlwind launcher on an Immolator base, whereas third one is a Rhino with CHAOS extra armor and launcher tubes looking like a U-Boat made out of old credit cards and hobby piping. I took all models to Adepticon several times and play at local GW store with no issues ever. If someone gives you a hard time than they need to loosen up a bit....
Here are the pics:
WOW those are beautiful!!
I did the Forgeworld thing, and they are easy and not tooooo expensive. I just don't like the organ thing.....
Yes they are wonderfull, especially now.

the U-boat type one is really sweet!
Most Notable Achievements:
Killed a Revenant Titan in one shot.
Killed 900 pts worth of Blood Angels in 2 turns while only loosing 4 pts.
Oh boy, my mistakes, just realized - I do not think U-Boats had missiles firing straight up or in any direction really. Well, but you get the general "submarine" connection
