Would anyone have an issue with DOWNGRADING elites?

Post by Eric.West » Sat Jan 03, 2009 9:08 am

So I am looking to add a few spikodons to my army list to top it off for the time being. But apparently elite models of these are more common then the normal grunt.

I found several ebay stores selling 4-6 elite Spikodons and not ONE grunt spikodon.

So...I was thinking about grabbing 3 elites, and painting brown (the grunt color) over the green, attempting to crack open the base and take out the stat card, scanning it, pass it through adobe photoshop, print, and presto, a successful downgrade.

Just I'm not sure if anyone would be appose to this, I could see how someone may have an issue with people UPGRADING grunts to elites, or converting a hyper form to a MEGA form or something like that......but this is hardly the case here. Let me know your thoughts!

Um... there aren't any grunt spikodons. It is always an elite unit.

Same as a Chuthl Task Master
