    Your attitude towards counts-as models

    Check out the poll above, and select all the options that apply to your attitude with regards to counts-as miniatures. I'm interested in getting people to think about the models they're willing to use in a game, and the models they're willing to let their opponents use in a game.

    I voted yes to items 1, 4, 5, and 6. Thinking about it a little harder, I might vote yes to item 10 as well. At least with warhammer 40k, I would probably never buy both space wolves and dark angels. If I wanted to use certain rules for my models, I'd just use them. I see no particular reason that I should go out and spend hundreds of dollars to rebuild an army just to get a mildly different aesthetic.

    As an aside:
    Is the problem of "counts-as" exclusive to warhammer 40k? Is there such a stigma about it in warhammer fantasy?
