I took a spin around the modeling threads but it seems more appropriate to post the question here. What I'm looking for is an explanation of the limits of modifying and bashing models when it comes to game rules. I'll narrow it down with some specifics:
1. Can I make a model taller or shorter than it would typically stand mounted on a plain black base? Example, could I cut the foot stands off a WH Seraphim and replace them with something else?
2. Do base sizes matter? Example, could I mount a character model on a slightly larger/taller base for dramatic effect, or must we use what they come with?
3. Are their size or height limitations when it comes to bashing models or adding wargear? Am I in violation of the rules if I make a model wider, taller, shorter, or longer by adding gear?
I really enjoy the hobby aspect of model collecting and painting, but I'd like to keep them tournament legal. Any advice would be appreciated. If there's an existing thread on this, please redirect me as I didn't see one.
