Basically, I'm considering getting started in the game again, and the only option I'm interested is (what else?) the Seraphon. They're like anti-daemons! They hate them almost as much as I do! And they look great. What I'm really interested in, though, are Skinks. Skinks everywhere, Skinks for days. I've figured out my first army along those lines; I'll just buy 3 boxes of Skinks, glue, primer, and some Green Stuff (or the generic-brand equivalent). I'll post the prospective army list and its 1000 pt upgrade for down the road in the appropriate section. But, for the Priest, I was figuring on taking one of the two leftover Skinks, surgically taking apart the model with a hobby knife, and rebuilding it with epoxy to turn it into a Skink Priest. I've done similar before, so I know I CAN do it, but... well... Now, my LGS says they're fine with proxies so long as it's clear what they're supposed to be. But... how does the community as a whole feel about the process? I don't want to be seen as a "cheater" for taking a grunt and making it a boss, if that's seen as "cheap" in some way. Would anyone here have a problem with that sort of thing? How far do conversions go, here?
