This weapon will be allowed to count as an eviscerator during a competitive game.
This weapon will not be allowed to count as an eviscerator during a competitive game.
I do not know.
Would the weapon depicted below be considered to count as an eviscerator during competitive play?
All right, since my initial thread did not generate big response I will try a bit more graphic approach. Please vote, below is a weapon I am designing for my Canoness, it is a 7cm spear (more than twice the height of a regular model); the dilema I have is if this weapon would be allowed to be counted as an eviscerator on a tournament. SO yes, vote, respond, im glad to hear from you.
Thanks a lot to you guys who posted on my initial thread, i value your time.

I would say yes. Anything suitably big and bad looking should could as an eviscerator.
Obviously, the "typical" eviscerator is the enormous chainswords wielded by the Repentias. However, I've used the regular vet sister model with the chainsword as an eviscerator in a bunch of tourneys, and no one says anything.
Plus, with counts-as, half the space marine players are tossing down whatever and saying "this guy is this other dude from the fluff". As long as it looks like a 2xS I1 kinda deal, then you're all good.
I'm trying to catalog every song with a reference to yetis or Sasquatch. Please help.
I am not expert, but I wouldn't say anything. I mean when people freak out over WYSIWYG like a fanatic, it just ruins a good game. I understand the purpose of WYSIWYG, but if somebody can't deal with something like that, they probably shouldn't play.
"The question is not how far. The question is, do you possess the constitution, the depth of faith, to go as far as is needed?"
The wargear description says "grotesquely large 2-handed chainsword" so you might get a bit of stick from the WYSIWYG fanatic brigade if it's just a grotesquely large normal blade. Chain-blades aren't that difficult to scratchbuild though, and I'd say a 7cm one would most definitely count as "grotesquely large".
Well, if they give you trouble over it, it could also work as a blessed weapon. Those are pretty decent too, right? o3o;
I've been around some sticklers for WYSIWYG, and they probably wouldn't let it fly.
I'd try cutting off the blade on the end of the Halberd and put a chainsword from the cannoness model on the end. it'd look impressive.
As long as you're not going to any tourney, you'll probably be fine as is with a flaming weapon.

It really shouldn't matter, but the sad truth is it probably will if you take it to an official event. It's really not that difficult to make chainswords from scratch though, just green-stuff a cover over the blade and fashion teeth from bits of sprue (the little metal sprue that GKT heraldry shields are attached to works nicely).
I vote no because you asked if it would be allowed in a competitive game or tourney. Now if you had asked what I thought should be allowed.... People take this game to seriously. If you want to play them then you have to do it on their terms which is all the more reason not to play them (at least for me anyway).
As been stated before, if someone really wants to throw a hissy fit, it wouldn't be WYSIWYG, but i feel that 95% of the players out there will have no problem with it IF you say what it is before the game:
Most people will expect an eviscerator to be a big chain sword, so might expect the big flamey thingy to be an eviscerator!
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
