Hey. How strict is 40k with WYSIWYG? Pretty much interested in starting yet not that much a fan of the looks of any race. Rule wise I tried the sisters of battle and liked their play style.

so was thinking of making somekind of race of space paladins. Use things like a lizardman space pope.

so as long as I have a consistant theme and use the right weaons and stuff would this kind of army be acceptable?

edit: pretty much in terms of 40k I don't want to be human or anything thats like fantasy. which imo leaves just nids, tau and necrons. Already have 3 nids and tau players and don't like the look of necrons (they seem like a boring army)
