Ok here is the question , I want to use a thunderbolt (forge world model) in the gladiator, the problem is I don't own one,

my options,

Using GW kits, I build a valkerie based thunderbolt, size the same, weapons the same, is this allowed?


do I need to purchase the actually model from Forgeworld?

Here is the link to the model policy for 2011:
Note : “That means all units MUST be easily identifiable as the particular choice they represent”
My primary concern is clarity. A Valkyrie armed like a Thunderbolt is still going to look very much like a Valkyrie unless significantly altered and could be mistaken for a Valkyrie by your opponent over the course of the day. Gladiator is going to be on the back end of a long weekend. Folks are going to be tired and I generally fall on limiting the possibility for confusion and misunderstandings.
My suggestion would be to either:
1. Find someone that owns a FW Thunderbolt and borrow it for the event. I’m sure Chris might know someone..
2. Find something that is similar in style/size and not a GW production kit for the basis of a conversion.
3. Purchase the FW model.
That would be my suggestion .
