Proxy Madness!

Postby Norman D. Landings » Sun Jul 23, 2017 7:24 pm

I'm looking at the possibility of expanding my 15mm DBN Ottomans.

There are some excellent ranges available - and yet, I still feel compelled to have a good old rummage around and see what else could find a place in their ranks!

So far I've cherry-picked oddments from Colonial Arab, Indian Mutiny, Persian, and Balkan Wars ranges.

Anybody else get this urge?

Urge to proxy? When I'm building a LOTR Rohan army and captains, banners and musicians are about 8-15 quid a figure from GW? No, not at all....

I've been looking at pressing some Footsore dark age blokes into service, and even baulked at 3 quid a figure for those but I suspect once I've finished painting some of the figures I already have (made a start on 4 royal guard this weekend) then I will be going down that route.

Look at Ostrogoths, they are the Rohirrim.

Gavin - I have a substantial collection of LotR figures (mostly GW/Perry plastics/metal bought via eBay) that you can have at knock-down prices to get rid of them.
