Searching for Epic Proxy Miniatures, For Epic
My search for Epic Proxy miniatures and what I found.
The End of an Era
After GW dropped Epic and the other Specialist Games they retired most of their miniature range as well. I think ForgeWorld continued to make their miniatures a bit longer.
You can still find a lot of the miniatures on eBay and such. The older plastic sets can be found for nearly no money at all but when you want to get the metal miniatures, well, your wallet will cry. Some of them are insanely expensive.
This is definitely a big problem if you are interested in starting to play the game. Sure you can get what you want from eBay or you can take a look at some of the numerous other makers of fine 6mm miniatures.
A pretty new company based in the US. They have a pretty big range of armies and more things are added quite often. From looking at the photos, they make the most detailed sci fi miniatures I’ve seen in 6mm.
The prices could be a bit better but I wouldn’t say that they are expensive. Considering the quality I will be happy to pay for it.
Defeat in Detail
Have a pretty good selection with 4 different armies to choose from. The price is pretty good and the miniatures looks great.
The have a pretty damn big range of their semi near future setting. You can find more or less everything you’ll need and the price is good.
They have 12 different armies to choose from, from the Neo-Soviets to the British and much more.
They don’t have as big selection as some of the other but I like the looks of the things they do have.
Unfortunately they aren’t open for business at the moment but they say that they are opening again soon. They are also involved in the Polyversal Miniature Game project that had a successful Kickstarter campaign. It’s a new 6mm Sci-fi rule set that looks quite interesting.
KM has a small but awesome looking range of Alien inspired miniatures and some other cool looking units. I haven’t seen these used for Epic but I think it would look really cool.
I just recently found this company. They have a cool looking near-future/retro look to them. If I ever do start one of my old project ideas, I will get some of their infantry for sure.
I found these when I was looking for somewhere to buy Dark Realm Miniature models and they do stock them. At the moment, most of the things are sold out but I’m hoping they will get some more stock later on.
They have a pretty big range of their own with 4 factions and some miscellaneous models. I have to give them a big thumps up for having a ‘Lizard Riders’ faction that really reminds me of the old Dino-Riders.
This is a company I’m planning on ordering from quite soon.
A very eclectic range of miniatures, you can find space ships, Daleks and much more. Very, very old looking website (think 90s).
I’m sure I’ve missed some makers of 6mm that would fit in here, if so please let me know.
When I started looking for miniatures this time around, I was saddened that the two places I bough all my proxy models from wasn’t operational. But as I kept looking I found quite a lot of other places that I can see myself using in the future.
