so. i see a lot of posts that refer to conversions and something called WYSIWYG. so i ask myself: "for what does this strange grouping of letters stand? maybe it's While You Sit In Wait You Grow. or maybe it's Will You Stare In Windows Ye Gremlin? but neither of those things have to do with conversions." so now i'm asking you, the experts, what this strange glyph represents. thank you.
note: if WYSIWYG has nothing to do with conversion, just tell me what it has to do with, and i'll go post in that section instead. thanks bunches! xoxoxo

Soup's up, bitches!
ah i see. well thank you very much. but basically what it means is that the people who don't have the money, access, or experience with putting models together or converting, or are just playing to have fun, shouldn't get to play with the big kids, who can model exactly what they want. while the ones who, for whatever reason, are forced to play with stock, "inferior" models and armies, shouldn't get to play at all. you're right. that is a good rule. because 40K isn't a game, it should be your life, right? <_<
to all those who don't have a problem converting or painting (myself included), do not mistake this for a flame or any intended offense. and i also do not intend to offend those who are very good at modeling. i for one greatly enjoy looking that the beautiful models you put out. it is just that saying that you can only play with a manreaper if you have the actual manreaper model (this is merely an example. i know the rules. don't respond to the use of manreaper in this example), to me, defeats the purpose of making 40K a game. it seems wrong to me to get as good as people out there get, and then expect everyone else to have something close to their level of skill. i'm not fantastic at it, but i don't have a problem painting or converting. it's just that the nearest place that sells GW stuff is an hour away. and when i got into 40K i didn't have much money. now that i have money and a way to get there, it's much easier to acquire the things i need. i think that it's just elitist and very stuck-uppish to deny the pleasure of the experience to people who, for whatever reason, can't always live up to the WYSIWYG standard. that's all i'm saying. and, having my original question answered, i now step down from my soapbox and open it to the floor. thank you.
WYSIWYG isnt realy about having the right modles if you just say that the certin things are what ever that would be fine but the main part of WYSIWYG is when having a molde the looks like it has a bolter but actualy has a las canon or somthing to aviod confusion.
