Darkspawn Proxies

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks!

 

I am building a Darkspawn Demon Army in Bones and, going through the Bones I and II lists, find that not all figures are represented, so have started trying to identify proxies that areas close to the pewter piece as I can identify. I have listed below those I have identified so far:

 

Pewter / Bones / Proxy / Name
14417   / 77111  /            / Rauthuros
14436   /             /            / Rahl, Duke of Pain
14067   /             /            / Guros, Baron of Whips
14083   /             / 77067 / Ashakia
14496   /             /            / Meridiana
14416   /             / 77307 / Maugrathoth, Demon
14456   /             /            / Mastema, Demon
14494   /             / 77281 / Jhorxia, Succubus
14435   /             /            / Demon Warrior
14473   /             / 77324 / Ice Demon
14434   / 77281  /            / Incubus/Succubus Warrior
14432   /             /            / Lesser Devil
14395   /             /            / Goatman Demon
14365   /             /            / Demon Imp
14461   /             / 77315 / Maladorn, Fire Demon
14474   / 77393  /            / Marilith

 

Can anyone recommend other Bones proxies by piece?

 

 

 

Thanks for any assistance!

I would go with the following.

 

Rahl: 77376

Guros: 77368 maybe? he was hard to find anything decent for.

Maugrathoth: 77308

Meridianna: 77119

Mastema: 77307

Demon Warrior: 77150 or 77261 and remove the wings

Lesser Devil: 77258 or 80043 remove guns on your choice. They do have a ranged attack. :)

Goatman Demon: 77252, 77253, 77254

Demon Imp: 77335

Marilith: 77117 as an alternate sculpt if you want multiple.

Demon Imp: 77335

Marilith: 77117 as an alternate sculpt if you want multiple.

Thanks for the suggestions! I've fleshed out my list now with only a few spots still in question.

 

As you say Guros is a tough one so I may end up using the Shadow Demon, but I'll still keep my eyes, and my mind if anyone else wants to chime in, open. On the other hand, there is nothing that says I can't mix pewter with bones . . . 

 

I had originally listed the Balor (77315) for the Fire Demon but realized, after I saw your note removing the wings from 77261, that the Fire Demon doesn't have SA:Flying so I'll have to remove his wings and I really can't bring myself to do that . . . Its such a nice looking piece as it is! This means I'm back to looking for a Fire Demon. I'd get the pewter piece for this one except its a $30 piece! But who knows, Maybe I'll get two balors and some green stuff and have my wife resculpt one of the Balors to plug the hole where the wings go . 

 

The new list is as follows:

 

Pewter / Bones / Proxy / Name

14417   / 77111  /            / Rauthuros
14436   /             / 77376 / Rahl, Duke of Pain
14067   /             /            / Guros, Baron of Whips (Maybe 77368)
14083   /             / 77067 / Ashakia
14496   /             / 77119 / Meridiana
14416   /             / 77308 / Maugrathoth, Demon
14456   /             / 77307 / Mastema, Demon
14494   /             / 77061 / Jhorxia, Succubus
14435   /             / 77261 / Demon Warrior
14473   /             / 77324 / Ice Demon
14434   / 77281  /            / Incubus/Succubus Warrior
14432   /             / 77258  / Lesser Devil
             /             / 77259  / (I need to check the sizes
             /             / 77260  / for all of these to make
             /             / 77261  / sure they're a match.)
             /             / 77262  /
14395   /             / 77252  / Goatman Demon
             /             / 77253  / 
             /             / 77254  / 
14365   /             / 77335 / Demon Imp
14461   /             /            / Maladorn, Fire Demon (77315 would be perfect if Maladorn flew!)
14474   / 77393  / 77117 / Marilith
 
Now the biggest issue is that most of these are in the Bones II KS. Good thing I'm in the first wave!

The next step is to tackle the Dark Elf Darkspawn Army proxies, though I think my wife wants me to help her with Icingstead Proxies first . . . She paints, I do the logistics . . . :-)

In the 1.5 edition rules he did fly IIRC. Maybe it was the beta for the current rules? Anyway at one point he did have wings but they were removed as it was believed Darkspawn had too many flyers. The fluff for the current rules even notes he had wings but were ripped off. Just say for your army, he kept his wings but he doesn't fly much. ::):

It just so happens that in the process of railing over loosing the Balor as the Monster Demon I seriously considered "ripping his wings off" and playing him as a really miffed (tremendous understatement here!) ex-flyer . . . :-)

I did another run-through of the Darkspawn Demon Proxies and will post them tomorrow. (Gotta get me a new power supply for my computer at home. The dog pee'd on the old one. The cur survived though . . . Ok, thats a good thing. I kinda like the cur . . . )

 

I've also filled in the proxies for the Aberrations, though that was a bit easier . . . 

 

I think I'll pass on the elves. Not interested in playing them right now.

Reviving this thread because I have been converted to total (or near total) bones for armies. I got the orcpocalypse in one of the previous kickstarters for Kargir, and I've found it is really nice to just through the figures in a plastic bag along with your dice and cards and not worry about them. Even if they are painted.

 

With 80038-80040 we have the tentacle guys for Darkspawn. I'm liking 77065 for Javolith, 77175 or 77066 for the Witch Queen. And 77384 for Keradaan.

 

I was going through the bones to find figures to make an all bones Sisters group, and there are a ton of options, but I'm not finding anything for Chain Sisters or Sable Guard and those are some of my staple grunts for this faction. Anyone got any ideas?

 

Edit to add: Excited to get bones 3 in the next few weeks, its got bunches of things to work for bunches of factions.

77376 you have for Rahl is huge. Like, could be a proxy for Rauthuros if you could get him to fit on a giant base.

77315 you have for Maladorn is perfect. So much so that I think 77315 is inspired by 14461 but added wings. But I don't like him as a proxy for Maladorn because he shows Rauthuros up in size. Clearly I'm going to need to sculpt a bigger Rauthuros to compete with these large and awesome new demons.

 

Edit: I couldn't get the gaps in the quote to go away. :(

I use 77043 Bones (eye beast) for the 14059 Spawn of Mashaf. That said, I don't use a proxy for Xeldorian simply because his metal sculpt is way too cool. Also, I like the theme that spawn of mashaf, which are abberations, are very similar "cousins" to their warlord leader, Xeldorian. The tentacles of the eye beast are reminders that they are burrowing aberrations, not a floating beholder.

 

I am currently considering using 77308 (as you suggest above), OR 77262 (vulture demon) OR 77307 as proxy to Maugrathoth 14416. I would modify 77307 with wings (greenstuff or sculpy).

Unfortunately the base size for the Mastema demon is one size too small to use the wolf demon.  Same is true for the ice demon/devil
