Sorry if this has been asked before, but can one be penalized for a sort of "reverse WYSIWYG"? Hypothetical example: if a Carnifex was modelled with a mace tail and spine banks but in fact uses neither of those biomorphs game-wise and pays none of the points for either, does that matter?
The Emperor set a fire in their hearts that they might burn the iniquitous and the impure from his sight. And the light of that flame shall be as a beacon to the faithful, a light that shines in the darkest places.
I'd guess, as long as your opponent was 100% clear on the matter. But you're right, it is a bit reverse, cus had the macetail and spine banks been a speciel rule, and not an optional. then you could ave left the details out.. but as long as your opponent knows about it, then I cant see a problem.. but i'm not sure it would work in a tourny.
Now, Banks may give a false impression re outnumbering, so it's best to give pre-game notice.
The rest won't affect opponents until they're within 12in of the Carnifex, and to what effect?
Potential Attacks and Frag effects that simply don't occur ... whew!
Further examples of bad impressions -
The Extended Carapace biomorph could affect Shooting decisions, so that's an issue.
Brandishing a weapon of *higher* Strength than paid-for is another, etc
Basically, if a look could adversely affect enemy tactics, it's a no-no.
But, no harm - no foul, imo.
