So, yes. I've been plotting a WM force for a little bit because I've fallen in with a group of players who like the game. I personally can take or leave it, but that's more because so few of the warcasters in the game have stories and personalities that actually interest me - that being one of the prerequisites for having a WM force after all!
But with some reading, I've finally settled on Ashlynn D'Elyse; mostly because of the 'tragic princess' angle, partly because I really do despise Khador from all the fiction in the books. But I dislike the model entirely too much.
So what I was pondering was buying Ashlynn's gun arm (or maybe using a Malifaux handgun) in concert with this model from Reaper Miniatures:
Kassandra of the Blade
To make an Ashlynn I could stand using.
I was also thinking about making a group of Precursor Knights out of Chaos Warriors, but that'd wait til like 35pts anyway.
That being said, what is the average group's stance on non-official WM models? The guys I've talked to around here are comfortable with it, but I'll be moving soon and I don't much care for the idea of having put a lot of work into converting a model only to be sneered at by whomever I end up playing against.
