    I believe as long as the majority of the model is GW-made, you shouldn't have a problem in tourneys, etc. that are run by GW.

    Well, GW has a GW only policy.

    However, if they do not know that it is not greenstuff, no worries.
    Gareth is the person I try to impress when I convert and paint.

    I think this changes depending on where you go, to be honest. I've had people tell me it has to be a certain % a GW model, it has to be wholly a GW model, it has to be at least the majority a GW model, etc.

    Heck, I think the shops that I go to (rarely) are so little/informal (not GW shops, but hobby shops focused on Warhammer) would probably let me use whatever models I wanted..

    i think GW is going to far on that because i made an winged hive tyrant for someone in the club and you canĀ“t use him on tournaments because the wings are from the Balrog:cry:

    I Belive that the model must be atleast 75% GW pieces as for the missing 25% you can make it out of anything else i believe, well Good Luck i hope it helps

    You probably did the balrog conversion a while ago.

    The main thing was the new line cinema (i think thats the company that did LOTR movies) owned the rights to the LOTR miniature line. Mixing parts and using them that GW touranments would have been a violation of copywrite and intellectual property laws and GW would hvae gotten in trouble

    Recently though GW bought out the rights to the game (you can see how they're producing a lot more miniautres that weren't in the movies)

    If you try using the converted model now, noone should complain...and if they do, tell them what I just told you and spit in their face while you're talking
