Hey guys,

Am thinking about attending my first GW tourney at warhammer world this year. However I do have a bit of a dilemma and GW themselves aren’t being desperately helpful in sorting it out.

Am going to take my Deathwatch, and because I was bored of the same shoulder pads over and over again, I used some 3D printed shoulder pads on them. Will GW let this slide and allow the army to be used? I’m not shooting for best painted army anyway so I’d happily take being disqualified/not eligible for that, but I’d like to be able to play with them. Nothing unusual or obscene, in fact almost all are GW chapters who currently don’t have moulded shoulder pads.

Tried emailing and calling the events team, but no response, which isn’t terribly helpful as I don’t want to spend £65 on a ticket, lord knows how much on a hotel and find out I’m not allowed through the door :)

Thanks guys,
Toomanyprojects

Do you have any picture examples? Most people aren't going to bend down and get a good look at your model I should think, being a tournament and not a painting competition.

 

Technically it's a no-no, but depending how obvious we're talking you might get away with it.

There are some (admittedly) kind of unclear piccies in my workbench. Literally the only non GW parts are about fifteen or so shoulder pads scattered throughout the various groups. Just off the top of my head there are six hellblasters, couple of intercessors, five vets and a primaris apothecary.

Finally managed to get through to someone on the phone and it is all fine - regrettably it’s now a moot point because the event is totally sold out...

The event pack I received for 40k doubles earlier in the year mentioned that any third part bits on models were not allowed to be on the table, even bases (although confusingly if you booked a table to play on a normal day third party bases are allowed....).

 

Now as Lord Marshal said it is unlikely anyone would actually notice unless they are blindingly obvious as being different, you would have to avoid any of the painting competitions held at the tournaments as well.

 

I am pretty sure all 3 times i have been to the doubles tournament there have been a few models that I have seen that have snuck in with bits not produced by GW, and despite GW staff roaming the hall whilst people play I have never personally seen anyone pulled up for it.

 

I would avoid taking them unless it is really not obvious, even if they are found out you might get away with a slap on the wrist and a "don't bring them again".
