Default Would you play this army?

So I was roaming around on Warseer and found an interesting thread. The OP asked the question if someone showed up to your LGS/usual place of play with this army would you play them?

I found the responses to be interesting, from "sure" to "I'd laugh and walk away". Personally I'm all for it, as I don't have the funds to buy an army myself so I usually end up proxying myself. If it's a choice between no game and this army then sure.

Thirded. As long as he didn't try to turn them sideways for TLOS shenanigans.

I'd play him, too, on the condition that there are no TLOS shenanigans and in the case of debate he turns the model to face the firing units.

I would play him, mind you my friend and i always use completely different models for other stuff if we are trying out new units which we dont have. Once i used various things as DE models, back before i had anything. Off the top of my head i had the following.

Warriors - Space marines. Rocket lauchers = dark lance
Wyches - Kroot. Wych Succubus = techmarine
Raider/ravager - Landspeeder
scourges - Eldar Guardians (we only had 4)

In another game i used a normal model for model ork army, except used 30 marines as hard boyz :P

Lord Zambia

P.S. Id love to see the look/reaction on a redshirt's face when someone pulls out an army like that paper one :P

Wouldn't bother me, as long as it wasn't an official event like a tournament. Best way to test out units before you commit to an army if you ask me.
