Hey all. I have a quick question and am looking for peoples opinions. I am starting a new lizardmen army and I am intersted in getting three salamanders. The only problem is that they are very expensive. Do you guys think that the older style cold ones, with a little work, could make effective salamnder proxies?
Go for it. That's what the hobby is all about after all - modeling and converting.
If you put a lot of work into them, they could become the centre piece of your army
yeah, people should'nt say no, usually real players will appreciate that you found a way to get salamanders for a cheaper price, that it worked well and that you putted lot of time in it.
One of the worst things when playing tournaments and such like is seeing multitudes of the same model painted, based and posed the same way!!
If you have the time, the effort and the know i would really encourage anyone to customise their army into a unique force that looks fantastic on the battle field!!
What it really comes down to is are you happy with the way your models look? If you are playing with an army that looks dodgy (in your own opinion) you will NEVER have as much fun as when you are bursting with pride over every model you have painted and/or converted in your army...
As Stonehambey said,RegardsGo for it. That's what the hobby is all about after all - modeling and converting.
Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes. After that, who cares, your a mile away and you have his shoes!!

I think that this is a great idea. There are many times when I have played against armies that used other models to represent something else. So long as they look something like what they are meant to be, and your example is a good one, you should be fine. I would also ensure that you explain clearly to your opponent what they are.
Good thinking and good luck with them. Salamanders rock, so if this is the best way for you to get some on the table, go for it.

I was gaming the other day and I noticed that the salamander and cold one models are very similar. All you really need to do is shorten the back legs and it's already starting to look like one! =)
