Long time ago, I played a modern mass combat game with my mates. The object of the game was to get some photos of tanks, planes, helicopters, even ships and carriers. Print and cut as much as you can, and bingo! That was your army. No points, the only limit was how fast was your printer. As you can imagine our armies were MASSIVE. The game was fun to play, until the armies were too massive to fit in a room
Now Apocalypse is making it possible again. I know it's not something that GW was intending to do. I know it takes a bit out of the modeler/painter fun, but the whole object of playing games it to have fun! So stop complaining about money, lack of time to paint, think about what you can do to have fun!
I think the best way to play the game this way, would be to set up a time limit (this way the armies won't grow too big to handle) lets say one weekend. Photograph models that you already have (or go to a club and photograph someone else's models). For human size, take front and back, for tanks, front, back, both sides and top. Glue it together, base it, and don't even think about points.
Way too cool to miss!
Ah, one more thing. Bases have to be heavy, as paper models tend to fly off.

ha, thats actually a pretty cool idea
imagine 10 Baneblades / shoebox's hooning around the place.
you could even take photos of infantry and stick them standing up on proper bases and so.
coffee cup drop pods, take away container tanks, etc.
it the only challenge would be scaling the photos to the right size so that they were approximately the same size as the originals, and finding something to attach them to ( ie bases or boxes)
That's quite clever. I saw the word "proxes" in the title and thought, Oh Khorne, here we go again.
But I admit, I was wrong. That's quite innovative for those short of money/time. Maybe you could mount them on card to give them a bit more sturdiness?
Bet you'd spend a LOT of money in ink printing out a Baneblade or ten.
just print it black&white, photocopy as many as you want, than use markers to color it.:drinking:
Lol, or crayons! Or pastels! Wow, the possibilities are endless! I haven't used pastels for a looong time...
I have recently found a great model paint substitute to be a good old white spray can and a conventional water colour paint set is brilliant for painting models as it is very versatile you just need a bit of patience and a brightly coloured army like eldar harlequin coloursare now so easy to paint the finish isnt that bad and after a bit of the right varnish you get a nice shine aswell(you also dont want to get the models wet until this, or i ou want repaint your models every so often if you dont varnish.
I think what is best for most imperial tanks is using the WW2 models which are nice and cheaper a T-34 is a great chimera.
