The closest Proxy for the Rapier laser Destroyer I can find is the Dystopian Wars (Grand Coalition) Dominion of Canada Huntsman class tank destroyer. It only has one large cannon, however its position in relation to the hull and the way the tracks and hull look make it is a close looking proxy. It could be easily converted, and 90% of their tanks are resin.

I am not sure of the size of it however. It is suppose to be for a scale so small infantry regiments are represented by counters.

That might be just about right scale I think (and certainly look the part!)

Many thanks for that :)

Will get some and give them a try..

Those dystopia wars tank are large models way to big for use as rapiers they are as big as landraiders.

They'd make excellent Mechanicum Krios or Venator tanks, though.

I found another possible proxy for rapiers. The only thing is that you only get 4 troopers with dual cannon carraige, an 4 troopers with cannon carraige in each Novan winter infantry specialist pack. 8 out of 42 minis. Easy converted or use as is.

By the way, what would the dimensions of a rapier platform be in 6mm scale?

Here's a pic of some of my Rapiers ... on 20mm square bases. So that should give you a good idea of size ... Along with the other Mk.1 Imperial weapons ... Image I've since gone back and added details, decals and a little large flock on the bases. Need to update my pics ! ^-^


Here's my Mk.IIs with my Squats mounted on 25mm round bases ... Image

Does anyone know of any good proxies for something that looks like these guys (other than the original GW guard guys?)

Seem to remember the Exodus Wars line carrying something that was about right although can't find a webstore that holds a full/organised collection of that company's old catalogue

You should be able to find those here or on eBay ? But otherwise, checkout some of the Infantry from GZG, Microworld, Brigade, or DRM ..... Those are some of my Old IG.

But Brigade may be closest ... ? http://www.brigademodels.co.uk/6mmSF/Infantry.html Scale Creep carries Brigade in the US - http://www.scalecreep.com/catalog/index ... _3841_3855


Or Chaos Orc in the US has some of those Old IG ... http://chaosorc.com/product_info.php/ep ... se-p-23546

Also Chaos Orc has 4 pages of Epic - http://chaosorc.com/index.php/specialis ... =1&sort=3a ... may worth a look ...

Pacific,

the EW line is now exclusive to https://hlsmodels.com/
Give them a look.

You also may be interested in the Novan infantry plastic sprues from Vanguard Minis.

Many thanks for the replies guys, a lot to look at!

Does anyone know how the Vanguard miniatures compare in scale to Onslaught?

I have some of the Novan elite troopers and they're quite a bit bigger than the old plastic space marines.

The original Mk.VI "Beaky" Epic SMs were a little smaller than the later released Mk.VIIs. So you may be finding that with Novans. They are actually in scale with the later released Mk.VIIs ... It's not really a problem ... Image The base on the left has Mk. VIIs & MK.VIs ... the base on the right all Mk.VIs ... so ...
