Default WYSIWYG Flesh Hooks on GS?

For the upcoming Ard Boyz I plan on giving my GS flesh hooks.

My GS currently only have their current upgrades on their model, and I've only recently come around to putting flesh hooks on them.

My question is, do I have to put flesh hooks on my models for this coming Ard Boyz if I plan on taking them? A few of my tournament going friends told me not to worry about it, but they play MEqs and their rationalization was that their Tac. Marines don't have bolt pistols on their models. For us Tyranids, though, we're actually purchasing those flesh hooks (it's not included in the base profile). What's your guys' opinion?

The Flesh Hook upgrade for 'Stealers come on their sprue; they have a food heads with Flesh Hooks instead of tongues. Just use a few of those in the unit to represent it.

I would do that, but I sold all those heads on Ebay thinking I would never need them. Big mistake. I would normally have done that, but since I don't have those heads I was wondering how acceptable it would be for me to just field the model with the upgrade without it represented on the model.

... or how legal it would be for me to do that in Ard Boyz

I think Ard Boyz is WYSIWYG
But the thing about nids is, you only get one type of upgrade per sprue, so if you greenstuffed the fleshhooks on just one stealer, you can play the unit as having them.

Honestly, I wouldn't worry about it. They are essentially frag grenades, and how many models that have frag grenades in their profile usually have it on their table top models? Most people don't worry about it, and they're never penalized. I'd say that if you tell your opponent strictly beforehand "Hey, my Genestealers have fleshhooks" it wouldn't be a big deal it all. Nid biomorphs are a pain to make WYSIWYG, so I'm sure most people would be understanding.

When in doubt, explain your predicament in an email and shoot it to the tourney advisors where you're playing.
