OK my ideas for anime-style fuedal japan guard are coming along well, but i want the army to be tournament legal. I read in the RT and NTS rules that "models must be GW, but conversion parts can come from any source."
OK my question is, what do you guys think constitutes the "model" and what constitutes the "parts?"
How about a DCA with it's head removed and a fantasy samurai head from another range glued on?
Or a model that has legs and head from another range and torso and arms from GW?
Maybe I'm stressing about nothing but I don't want to awesomely convert some guys and then have some stickler go "sorry, that model is less than 60% GW official. I refuse to allow you to use it."
I've never actually enetered a tournament, nor do i know the rules, but i would allow a head swap to count as 60% GW. You might want to check the exact rules on the GW site or wherever the may be though.
Sorry i couldn't be of greater assistance.
They shall be my Imperial Guard and they shall know some fear...
As long as a model contains mostly GW components, it's legal. For example, a popular conversion for Crisis Suits is to replace the lower legs with lower legs from other Mecha minis, often from Dream Pod 9's Heavy Gear minis. This is perfectly legal.
However, taking, say, a Spitting Cobra from that line, adding a Crisis Suit head, it not legal.
Stuff like plasticard and, I dunno, branches from a tree or what-have-you, as well as Green Stuff, are always legal. However, unless the model is totally sculpted by yourself, it must have at least a few GW parts on it.

Awesome thanks. I want to make DCA's who look like ninjas a la the game Tenchu, with baggy green clothes and masks on their lower faces. But GW doesn't make any female heads that could possibly be asian. They all have big swirly westerner hair!
Ah that would be awesome.If you do do it can you please post some pics up or pm me? I would love to see how they turn out.
