So, I assume that most of us have our own army that we have created outside of a codex, with it's own personal charm and abilities.

Just wondering if you play with it often as you intended it. In other words, do your opponents generally allow you to play them as you created them, or no? Also, I assume they wouldn't be allowed in a true GW Tourney either, but wondering about that too . Obviously not if your chars are like 6/4/6/6/5/5/5 with a points cost of 20
