If you just start out, or are low on green, why not? it would give you a chance to test out your army, and change where neccesary before buying a 200 dollar army. If you make an army, buy the pieces, and then test it, you might end up with a couple hundred $ in the crapper. It also works if u change armies once in a while and cant dish out 300$ every two weeks.
THEY CAN DO GOOD!
COME ON PEOPLE....RESPOND!
dont wana rain in your parade but theres already a post concerning this subject lol
ppl should use paper armies for the reasons already listed (lack of $$$, trying new armies, etc...). i myself have bout 800 pts of DA wich took me real long to get as i dont buy minis that often (the store is kinda far away), the last model i got was about 5 months ago lol
...love the smell of plasma burned flesh in the morning...
Dark_Epsilon, this guy is the one who the previous post is ABOUT
1) Choose an army based upon play style and army style.
2) Buy a box or two of that army's base troops.
3) Proxy the rest of your army for 500pts until the previously bought troops are painted. By this time, you should have an idea of what you want to finish your 500pts.
4) Buy whatever else it is you need to buy to hit that magical number 500.
5) Repeat the process until you buy enough to hit 1000.
I don't think there's a single reason why your ENTIRE army should be proxied. Especially with non-GW stuff (*cough*paper*cough). Everyone buys piecemeal, and we all know it's an expensive hobby. Deal.
thanks. i think those are good ideas. Im going to go and buy two troops/HQ as soon as i can pay for them
Just apply for a job at safeway or subway dude. It's easy. . . I worked at Quizzno's for 1 (one) day and quit. . . schedule was f.ed up.
WHY THE HELL IS THIS TOPIC POSTED TWICE!!!!
This thread needs to be locked, deleted, or burned, and another thing, Paperman needs to read the rules and stop posting about a subject that has already been talked about.

I don't know about you but my codex is made of paper

What the hell is wrong with using a paper army? You're saying you need to take on a second job to support your hobby? There's nothing wrong with proxying, especially if you don't want to waste money.
The only thing I'd recommend would be, try to make the proxies look cool, (i.e. printing out photos of well painted figures and gluing them to cardboard backings).
I happened to know I wanted tyranids, so I went on ebay, bought a big lot of poorly painted ones really cheap, and stripped them. But if you don't want to screw around with an online auction, then there's no reason not to use paper.
You guys need to chill - it's just a game. Hell, my buddies and I used to play chess in elementary school with paper pieces we made during english lessons, and I have yet to hear from an angry grand master about that!
When you play chess, you don't usually spend an hour painting a single chess piece
I dislike entirely proxied armies because I bought my own army, painted my own army, and like to show off my army/see other's painted armies. If you and everyone you play with only play for the game, and dislike the modelling aspect, thats another issue. But I love the hobby for more than just the gameplay, so I like to see the same dedication from other players.
Ever seen a (well) painted army fielded against a pile of paper? I'd say that'd be expecting a lot of patience from the painted army's owner!
