So I've recently started playing Warmachine, with two whole games under my belt.
I've got it into my head that I have to run Murdoch with Sam's Devil Dogs and a Buccaneer. Modelling and painting are a big deal to me and the biggest draw here is painting them up in repurposed Cygnar uniforms. What I'd also like to do is convert a plastic Lancer to be the Buccaneer, maybe a little stripped down as though it had been salvaged.
Anyway, all that is basically to ask if that sort of "proxying" is generally a problem in Warmachine circles? Bearing in mind that it would be painted in Cygnar colours. Would I be roundly jeered by angry nerds (I don't use that as a pejorative)?
