Representation in other Games? Legit?

OK, so we all know the split opinion of Heresy on the topic of Proxy models (ie: Paper Waaagh!), but would it be acceptable to use the Paper Waaagh! idea (ie: Cutouts) in games such as Dark Heresy?

Such Roleplay games combat systems involve map making and remembering where things are, but Dark Heresy is

written so you can use a tactical map and 28mm miniatures whilst playing combat.
Now, the thing is, I'm not going to buy a pack of Plague Bearers for one or two encounters when I dont play Chaos or Daemons, so would it be acceptable to use the Paper Waaagh style cut outs for Roleplaying combat?

I would probably convert a 'centerpeice' model, such as 'the boss', archdaemon or massive monster, but for regular cannonfodder such as cultists and the like, I would probably 'proxy' them.

Heresy, your opinions please?

Is the game dependent on models and LOS? Does it depend on models for actual game play or is it an option to have a physical representation?

If you answered no to those questions, you could use a rock or a penny or a piece of chewed gum to add a visual representation to a role playing game.

If you answered yes, then you should invest in proper representation. It is that simple.
