I have been considering adding Gaius Pallidus to my Cohort, as I really like his backstory, his stats, and his healing ability is incredibly useful. That being said, I'm not a fan of his official model, specifically the tree roots. I have considered "trimming" the official model, however I don't think I quite have the sculpting skills to make it look like the quality of the rest of the models in the cohort. So I'm curious to know what people's opinion would be regarding someone using another company's model as a proxy? (Heresy, I know.) Specifically Knutr, from the Norse line by Mierce Minatures.

I personally really like this model, as he has a similar stance to the official Gaius Pallidus model, along with the giant axe. However this model is free of the roots, and has a much more Norse aesthetic, to suit my OCD, and the rest of my very Norse Zephryi.
Can you see this being an issue?
