Conversions and Warmachine
The crux of the matter is that I don't know how significant things like weapon swaps are in this game. In my experience with GW games, conversions aren't too big a deal if they reasonably approximate what they are representing, i.e. a bolt pistol shouldn't be counted as a meltagun.
So, here's the idea. As part of my eKreoss Tier 4 army I need to add Fire of Salvation. Well, I have a few issues: 1) The model is like $50 NiB! I don't like that at all. It is just a Crusader heavy variant, and I was able to purchase a Crusade for $12. 2) The mace that Fire of Salvation carries isn't all that flashy. I have ordered Scourge of Heresy's sword as it looks more Exemplar themed and will use it and perhaps greenstuff some flames onto it.
Is this acceptable? Even though Fire of Salvation carries a mace, there aren't any qualities given to maces specifically, so should modelling a sword matter? Veteran Warmahorders, what say you? Please leave me some feedback and let me know. Thanks.
