Skin wolves for Yhetees?

Post by BigAxeGod » Mon Nov 24, 2014 6:16 pm

So this is kinda an odd question.

In the process of constructing my first Ogre Kindoms list I've decided I want to use a group of 3 Yhetees. But I don't like the GW models for them. I think instead I'd like to use the forgeworld Skin Wolves and make up some silly reason for why they should be treated as Yhetees.

However, I'm most likely going to be mainly playing in my local GW and I know how some GW staff can be about using proxy models.

Just wanted advice really on whether I should even bother buying the wolves and if you guys think my local GW manager would allow it.

Thanks for any help :)

Last I checked, FW figures are Approved. Sounds legit, they're used to cramped conditions, so are used to be on 4 legs instead of 2...

That would be plain stupid that a GW manager forbid you to use a FW model. FW is a subsidiary of GW. Except if GW's right hand loves to destroy what the left hand does, I'm in the opinion they would allow it. Maybe you could ask the employees about it? BTW, I 100% approve the fact that the Yhetees aren't exactly looking great. ;)

Thank you.

I just think they're much cooler models and minus their kinda chaosy wrist shackles they should fit ok in an ogre army. I really don't like the Yhetee or the Gorger models.

I will do, he seems like a pretty nice guy to be honest, he should be reasonable. IKR.

Looked at them, might have to green stuff some fur. Hate to say, they look more like Rat Ogre-ish than Yheetee-ish...

Yeah I wasn't necessarily going to call them Yhetees, I'd make up some reason as to why this particular Ogre tribe decide to use werewolves instead of Yhetees.

I'd just like to play them using the Yhetee rules because I like the models a lot more and that way they still fit within the Warhammer: Ogre Kingdoms rules.
