Re: The Question Thread

If I want to change an already painted model's weapons in my final list change, do they need to be modeled as such ? How wysiwyg does it need to be?

As an example, I have painted two wolf guard terminators with combi-plasmas (one with a wolf claw and one with a power weapon). In my final list, I want both to have a powerfist in stead. What do I need to do? Paint new models, leave them as counts as, or convert the existing models?

Jerre, if it were me, I would convert the existing models and magnetize the arms. I don't know how fast you need to get this done, but if you have the time I'd go that route. My two cents.

That's what I want to do. I just want to make sure I am allowed to change models I already "finished" ...

Questions since were nearing the end of the challenge

1- do the bases have to be completed and painted, or can we use the plain black plastic, I ask because i have alot of infantry
2- do we have to have objective markers?, because for some tournaments it's required

1. yes. Bases are needed to be complete.
2. no. That is not part of this challenge, but maybe next time.
