WYSIWYG - Themed scouts
So the SM army I'm working on is a swamp themed one, and I'm working on my scouts at the moment.
Now, a scout comes with a Bolter and Bolt Pistol, and can swap either of these for a combat blade. What I want to do it make it look like scouts are hacking through dense jungles and the like using cane cutters/machettes, but still give them the Bolter/Pistol load out.
If I modded them so that they clearly had both bolter and pistols on them, but were using some kind of blade to chop their way through that wasn't the standard combat knife, would people accept this under WYSIWYG?
I've never seen impossible as a reason not to try.
