Would epic be usable as base models for 40k conversions or is not allowed?
Also can epic models be used in normal 40k?
Could you please elaborate this a little more.
Epic models are a lot smaller than ordinary 40k, but conversions is probably possible in one way or another.
But you can't take an epic scale Leman Russ and say that it counts as a full scale one...

I would be intregued to know what you want to convert using Epic. As far as I can remember, Epic is far to small to be used for 40k. The tanks are no more than a cm square or so...
I would be interested to know what your plans are...
Back in the day the 1000 squats used epic dreadnoughts for their squad of tiny pink robots. Other than that I haven't ever seen a conversion using epic before for normal scale 40k. This has me intrigued.
I planned on using epic titans and fliers as the main part of conversions. I was curious if the fliers would be allowed as substitutes. I was going to make a dakka suit using the LUCIUS PATTERN REAVER TITAN 2 as abase. Idea is to stick as many weapons as can fit to make the model. I was told by the manager if I wanted to make a dakka suit I could use only GW parts not even plasticard.
He wasn't being ajerk he was going to try and match me. I don't have experience with plasticard or supplies so it was added to the rules to make it easier.
The GW parts only is to make the competition fairer and more interesting.
The rules are: only GW or look alike products,no point values,all weapons must actually fit on model and be made from corresponding weapon bits(eg. no bolter=heavy bolter),shooting weapons may be placed any where melee weapons must be placed near rnds of limbs, if weapon has no bit you must fashion an acceptable form, and competiton peices should be ready by March 10

Well alright, then I can understand the prohibition against plasticard, but you didn't mention that it was for a competition.
