Would you let these past for chaos warriors with helberds *They fit just right on 25mm*

Sure, but some tournaments would frown on it. You could always convert some marauders.

A greek theme fits the woc list pretty well- you could have spartans for chose warriors, regular hoplites for warriors, helots for marauders, light horses, companion cavalry (if you want to bend it a bit to macedon) for knights. There are plenty of appropriately greek monsters for the ogres/trolls/spawn, and warhounds aren't too much of a stretch for just about any army. You could make any kind of greek religious stuff for a shrine. The only thing i cant think of off the top of my head is the hellcannon.

The problem is the GW stuff is a wonky scale that doesn't fit with any other manufacturer- a mixed army always winds up with the non-gw stuff looking weedy and spindly. People may balk at a mixed army but I don't think anyone could at one that is all the same manufacturer. OF course, you can never use it at a GW official tourney.

Actually I have those models. Great models. Scale is just about perfect for Warhammer armies. Take a look at Corai's log.

Plus Warriors army isn't really set up for it. Wood Elves on the other hand! Phalanx of Doom!!!

only problem i see is many of the tournaments that don't care what manufacturer of models, also want WYSIWYG (because of the amount of custom stuff) and warriors didn't have spears as an option If I remember my book?

go for it. Given all the shenanigans that go on in tournaments, a highly enthusiastic modeler who wants to do a Sparta theme would be a great and memorable opponent.

For all intents and purposes, the only people who wouldn't allow it are Games Workshop, their tournaments and their stores. You shouldn't have any trouble if you stick to playing at independent shops or in independent events.

yeah thats fine, though don't forget they need 25mm bases, the ones pictures look more like 20mm. chaos warriors are too hard to allow small bases
