View Full Version : Let's design proxy armies :D

Ok, so I propose you guys a game, by using non-40k/WHF models, statues, etc, design your own proxy army, you can point any army you want, the idea is to make it fun and functional!

Do you mean make up your own armylist/codex, for non GW models?

I assume he means write an army and proxy models..
eg. Chaos Marines
Landraider - My old A-team Van
- Men - All the small green army men :)

Unit: Imperator Titan
Proxy: Me with cardboard tubes on my back.
30th Sep 09, 8:28 AM
Unit: Space marine
Model/proxy: Lego man
I saw in one tourney some french fellow with 100% proxy army of spess merhens made out of switchboxes and whatnot. It was damn good looking army there, though he would get the boot from any GW store with those.
Unit: Keeper of secrets
Proxy: Barbie doll with loin-cloth and a liquorice line whip.

This is highly dubious. I'll let it run for the time being, but I'll be keeping a very careful eye on it. If it slides, well, you know the drill...

I've actually been considering building a full proxy army using "other" models for some time. The list is pretty decent I think...
Imperial Guard infantry - using Mutant Chronicles board game infantry models (there's a supplier in Ireland producing these in bulk, though you get two different types of model in their big packages; either one would represent stormtroopers and the other normal infantry or I would build 2 separate armies using them)
Tanks - Armorcast steampunk walker models, like the Quad Deathball (swap the missile "arms" for proper sponson weapons and add a hull mounted weapon somewhere)
I would of course have to boil up some special rules since the "tanks" would be walkers (the tracked versions they have are somewhat lame), but besides that I would be able to proxy everything in a guard list with the models listed. Sorry there's no comedic value to my post... I know I'm a fun-hater.

Well, I was thinking that maybe this page could help, I already have a mammoth tank:
Not really sure if I should be Tau, IG or SM.
