Just getting into the game. Have the basic Tau set on the way, along with a couple more boxes of Firewarriors. Mostly trying to assemble a competent little army, not massive.
One of my major interests is painting the little buggers up and making them look good. On that note, I was wondering. I know the whole 'WYSIWYG' principal (new to 40k, but I'm enough of a gamer to have known the basics of the rules anyways).
My question is, how literal is it? Like I'm thinking of my 'commander' having a set of twin-linked missile pods as his primary armament. Problem is a hate how the missile pods basically look like little nobbly pancakes. How creative can I get if I modify them or replace them and still have it be 'legal'?
As long as they look like missiles you shouldnt run into any problems. At least in my experience most players are rather supportive of attempts to model unique looking wargear. Just make sure whoever your playing agianst knows what they are before the game starts.
you could use parts of other models to represent missle pods, but none actually look Tau-ish though. if you're really daring, look on the Forge World website, you'll never know...
