Welcome to Librarium Online!
I am now ready to build my first 10 man squad of Harlequins. I plan to have 1x Troupe master, 1x Death jester, 2x Fusion pistols, maybe a Shadowseer and the rest with Harlequin kisses. So far I have purchased two harlequin boxes giving me 2x Troupe masters, 4x Fusion Pistols, 4x Kisses and 2x Swords.
Is it acceptable to use the Harlequins that have the close combat weapon and say they have a Harlequins kiss or do I have to purchase loads of the two Harlequin Kiss models. Also Is there an easy way to convert them to have the kiss? I may be planning to have more than one squad of these but it is beginning to look like an expensive option!
For friendlies i'm sure whoever you'd play against would be fine with that. If all are to have kisses it makes it simple, it's not like you're saying "models in this action pose have kisses, models in that action pose don't, models with this purple dot...etc" or anything like that to make it confusing. Unless you're playing in a tourney or campaign which is 100% strictly wysiwyg, and no two ways about it, then i wouldn't worry too much about it.
I myself have a 10man strong harlequin unit (1 troupe master, 1 shadowseer, 8 harles), and only 3 bare the kisses, and when i've used them all, i've always claimed to field them all with kisses, and i've never got any complaints. As long as you mention it at the start of game, so it's clear to your opponent then it's fine, if they have a problem with it then they're not worth playing against anyway
I dont know about strictly wsyiwyg. I would highly doubt that anyone would really hold you to it.
the main part of the kiss in that piece near the hilt
i imagine it wouldn't be too hard to convert your models to have all kisses.
A related question about upgrading. It says that they can exchange their CC weapon to a kiss. Would you say this is allowed for all models excluding the Death Jester? (Since he has no CC weapon to exchange). I'm asking since I didn't think the Shadowseer could have a kiss before, but looking now it seems like that upgrade is indeed possible. I thought the same about the guys with fusion pistols btw.
the codex states the DJ gets his weapon replaced the shadowseer does not, despte the model having a staff. so, im pretty sure the shadow seer could have a kiss
What about buyingsome of the classic models. I knwo there not as amazing as the new ones but they still look cool and adds varity.

If you want a quick Harlequins kiss convert snip off the ends of Guardian/Avenger Shuriken Catapults and glue them on to the wrist of the harlie, hey its easier than buying 8 blister 'quins :p

The old Harlies really don't fit the same scale as the new ones, its like comparing the old SS's to the new ones, except the opposite happened.
The older Harlies are really bulky, the new ones are the exact opposite even for eldar.
I have both and considered doing that except in the end the look wasn't all that amazing on the table.
