New models and proxies
« on: January 21, 2013, 02:07:05 AM »
I went through the Forge page and found some realy nice units.

Sons of Rasputin:
 
The "Death Korps of Krieg" are realy nice proxies for the sons.

http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Warhammer-40000/Imperial_Guard/Death-Korps-of-Krieg/DEATH_KORPS_OF_KRIEG_INFANTRY_AND_ACCESSORIES?page=1

The colored examples are even a copy of the sons:

And they offer even a nice heretic example:

Crescentia or Imperial Desert Troop on Dark Eden (Fallen Angels in different split units):

Sons of Rasputin, Imperial and Bauhaus:

I think these guys can be used for all the fractions. Maybe some minor changes and a good choice of colors and perfect.

Universal:

The riderless beast could be used for any Venusians Beast Rider.

That Thudd gun could be made for Mishima with minimal tweaking.

I wonder if the two powered armour figures would still fit in with normal Warzone figures as the normal infantry wont fit



You could use them as SOR (sons of Rasputin) mechas early type I Vulkan battlesuits?

Maybe the Sons got support from Bauhaus during the development...

Thats what I was thinking they were provided with these antiquated early suits in return for troops to take off world in there other campaigns. Or campaigns on Dark Eden.

Be warned that the infantry are a lot bigger than normal 28mm thats why I suggested the battlesuits as Vulkans or a topkick suggested as Flammentruppen, nows theres an idea.

For proxy it would be good to have them all standing next to each others.

I mean minis from from all the different systems on the market.That would help.

Even a good idea when the 4th Edition WZ minis are on the market.

If you look here you will see there scale to others, standard infantry are bigger than GW space marines if they were on metal washers rather than a plastic base they would be a bit lower but still big.
