Using "counts-as" models


Dirus

Recommended Posts

Hi there.

Pardon me if there is a misunderstanding, I'll try and explain it as best as i can. Feel free to move this isn't the right place to post this too.

I'm planning to convert some PAGKs painted up in the same color scheme as my DIY chapter but still take them as Grey Knight allies. Is it okay for me to do so? Is it frowned upon?

I'm not using a proxy or anything, they'll still have halberds, falchions, etc. just without the Grey Knight iconography.

Proxy models/counts-as are generally "Hey, this may look like a necron, but it's actually my chaplin." If you can clearly tell that the model is a grey knight, who just happens to be bright pink, well it's still a grey knight. Otherwise DIY chapters would all be unusable because they aren't painted like the models on the box.

while in full agreement with the above that youre fine doing this, as an oppoent I wouldnt mind additional indicators to identify a different force.  not so much that i would require them...just a desire on my part.  really ive seen this as simple as a different color ring on the base of the model to signify a secondary force...or something as complex as different paint scheming on the shoulders while maintaining the uniform scheme for the force itself.  again, this is more a preference.   in all honesty, you should have no problem with any opponent here as youre using grey knight models for grey knight allies...its not like youre using goblins/gretch to be space marines here.

Thanks for the great advice.

I'll be sure to put a marker of sorts to differentiate which ones are the GK and which are the SM. I'll probably make the GKs the 1st company veterans so they'll get a different paint scheme from the regulars.
