I like the idea of the Lord of the Feast (in Circle Orboros). However, I can't help but feel that his actual model is kinda bland, given how he's described in the fluff. Hence, I'd like to use a different model for him.
It seems like it would be fun to use something more bestial (perhaps a werewolf or the like) or else something more creepy/unnatural (maybe something like the Grymkin Gore Grows).
Would either of these be allowed?
Mainly, I'm curious as to whether there are any rules when it comes to conversions or alternate models? - Do I need to keep a certain percentage of the original model? - Does it have to closely resemble the original model? - Does it have to just have similar gear to the original model? - Are there any other rules (or taboos) I should be aware of?
-Models cannot be converted in such a way that any part of the model represents the intellectual property of any party except Privateer Press, including copyrighted logos, symbols, iconic elements, or other iconography. -The majority of a converted model's volume must be composed of parts from Privateer Press models. To avoid confusion, the conversion should include iconic elements of the model it is intended to represent. -A weapon on a model can be converted as long as the conversion represents the same type of weapon (e.g., the model’s axe is still an axe and not a hammer). -A weapon can be completely swapped for another weapon as long as the new weapon is of the same type (e.g., an axe for an axe, a rifle for a rifle). -A weapon cannot be removed unless it is replaced by another weapon; a weapon cannot be added unless it is replacing a removed weapon. -If a conversion uses a Privateer Press upgrade kit for the model it is intended to represent, all parts of the upgrade kit must be clearly visible on the model. -Miniatures must be mounted on appropriately sized round-lipped bases. Added scenic details can overhang the base’s edge but must not obscure the edge in a way that makes accurate measuring during a game difficult or impossible. -A player cannot use a model as a proxy (stand-in) for another model. -Any conversions must be clearly pointed out to the opponent before the game, and the end result of any conversion must be clearly identifiable as the intended model. -The golden rule of converting models for tournament play is simply this: If the EO cannot independently, easily, and accurately determine which model your conversion represents, the model is not tournament legal.
So he still needs to have a sword and look close to the original. The horns on the original are pretty iconic so I'd try to keep those. To be safe if you intend to play him in a tournament though, I'd have the original on hand as well to swap if needed.
Welcome to Cryx where what doesn't kill you makes you stronger... and what does kill you makes you stronger... and what you kill makes you stronger.
Those rules make me want to hang myself but I guess they answer my questions.
Please note that those rules only apply to official Steamroller events. Basically, they are at the Event Organizer’s (EO’s) discretion if you are playing at anything less than a Master’s/Champion’s tournament at a major regional/national gaming convention.
If you are playing at your local shop... Who cares? Mod away!
