New Guard Proxies by Wargames Atlantic

Looking for Guard Proxies for your favourite wargame? Wargames Atlantic continues to pump out new hard plastic miniatures at an astonishing rate. In this post, we will look quickly at the newest miniatures to preview on their site. These miniatures are not yet released, but instead on their way.

As a note: All of the images in this awareness article come from the Wargames Atlantic Website. I will place a link to that at the end of the article.

Now, let’s take a closer look.

Cannon Fodder Box Set by Wargames Atlantic

Box Art of Wargames Atlantic Cannon Fodder miniatures. Extremely affordable Guard Proxies
Above is the front art work of the Cannon Fodder Box Set. How many infantry go into a Conscript Squad?

Check out that art work. Right away, Wargames Atlantic shows you that they made some perfect miniatures for your 28mm Sci-Fi games to represent Penal and Conscript Squads. I can think of a specific game where 30 miniatures like this will work extremely well for a Proxy Imperial Guard Conscript Squad.

By the Way, you get 30 miniatures in this box set for just $34.95. Wow! Wargames Atlantic are the kings of value priced miniatures.

Now, let’s look at the sprues.

Cannon Fodder Sprues by Wargames Atlantic

Check out these plastic sprues.

Potential Guard Proxies - Plastic Sprue
Here are the sprues. Check out those laser rifles. They are perfect for a specific game. Even if you are not into that game, you will be able to use those minis for a plethora of other miniatures agnostic games.
The Cannon Fodder Sprue by Wargames Atlantic for Death Fields
The back of the sprue. Taking a look, you get 6 LasGuns like weapons and a Plasma gun in there. On top of that, there is a pistol, a separate gun and plenty of optional pieces. There looks to be 20 heads per 5 bodies.

Given that you get 30 miniatures, it looks like you will get 6 of these sprues per box.

As a heads up, Wargames Atlantic does not pack bases with their miniatures. You will have to look somewhere else to source some 25mm round bases (or whichever base you use for your desired game). There are two companies specifically that I like to use, but that is something for a different article.

Let’s move on to see how they look once they are built.

The Guard Proxies Made and Painted

Wargames Atlantic shows us these miniatures in a few pictures to help us get a better idea of the product. Let’s check out some of those pictures.

Check these minis out. They look great in their jump suits.

More Photos of these Potential Guard Proxies

Again, all of the images in this post are from the Wargames Atlantic website. There will be a link to them in the next section below. Now, a few more pictures before we wrap it up.

Guard Proxies - Conscripts
There is another shot of that plasma gun again. If you want to arm them all with laser rifles, there is enough in there to do that too.
Guard Proxies - Space Suits and Penal Squads
Another look at the space suit and prisoner paint job on these miniatures. They look good.

Just looking at these images shows you that there are plenty of ways that you can paint and theme these miniatures.

Below are some links that may interest you about these upcoming miniatures.

Wrapping it up…

I have to say, these miniatures look perfect to me as 28mm Guard Proxies for Penal Squads and Conscripts. Hopefully Wargames Atlantic will put out some scale comparison images in the future. Based on their other Death Fields miniatures, they should fit in with other manufacturers. If I get my hands on these, I will provide future scale comparison images.

If you are looking to add variety to your existing army (or want to start a new Sci-Fi army) make sure you check out Wargames Atlantic. There is no reason great looking minis should be extremely expensive. These guys make affordable miniatures of good quality.

If you want to save some money, Wargames Atlantic has a pre-order sale on these on their website listed above. Just look for the miniatures and you will find the deal.

Until next time, Happy Gaming Everyone!!!

I just like this picture, so I figured I would post it again to close out this article about some potential Guard Proxies.

    I wanted to like these, and hey — who doesn’t like cheap plastic kits which kitbash potential — but I’m having a hard time warming up to them. I can’t say I see them as Imperial Guard (except maybe to fill up the numbers in a huge regiment, but I don’t play 40K so that’s not my goal) nor are they particularly characterful as penal troops or escapees from a space prison. And some of the poses look awkward; the worst offender is the squatting pose — people don’t fire a gun like that, one knee should probably be on the ground.

    I appreciate what Wargames Atlantic is doing, and some other boxes are better looking, but this one isn’t for me 🙂

      Thanks again for the comment Andres. I think we will be seeing more kits from Wargames Atlantic. It will be interesting to see how they handle weapons teams for the other factions.
