AoA Proxy Model Thread

Hello everyone, If anyone has started to, or is in the process of collecting models to use in tandem with the released cards for the AoA units please consider using this thread to post listings or share ideas for sculpts. I would have thought someone would have tried to make a post like this already (if anyone has and I missed it my sincerest apologies) and figured it would be nice to have a repository/resource for people looking to salvage something out of the campaign/saving these designs and rules for their own collections.

EDIT: Listings of what I got so far. I'll be sure to add the suggestions I've seen others make in the thread too.
EDIT 2: At the moment we have at least one purchasable proxy for every AoA model that has rules including a bonus with chas's Zed Nesbit custom. This isnt meant to discourage anyone from posting more suggestions. We can certainly use more especially for the weirder stuff like the Hellforge or Ordo Borealis. Thanks again to the community and the war council behind these cool unit designs, hope these proxies can do your awesome work justice!
EDIT 3: Added entires for the rest of the missing AoA units now that @Anitar has started work on army cards for them, rounding out the rest of the factions. Once the community has cards for the Kyrie and stretch goal units I'll add them here too. Will post links as soon as find them.
EDIT 4: Entries for the missing Kyrie and the stretch goal heroes are now added and will resume proxy searching now that @Anitar has got to work making army cards for them.

Re: AoA Proxy Model Thread

For the Frostclaw Paladins and the other anthropomorphic bear units I've been researching various companies for armored werebears and the like. No idea how we'll find figures for the bulk of clockwork combine units but werebears are relatively plentiful. Reaper has a handful of were-animals to choose from. The wings and other clothing on the various units will likely have to be taken off another figure and kitbashed together.

Re: AoA Proxy Model Thread

I think there’s someone on the Facebook that was making a model for Kayne.

Re: AoA Proxy Model Thread

My understanding is that we are not allowed to post .stl files of even proxy 3d prints. Maybe I misunderstood Dysole's rule.

Sharing existing minis that work as good proxies should be fine, though. I can't wait to see what y'all are able to dig up!

Re: AoA Proxy Model Thread

I probably missed that rule, then. Would like clarification if possible.

Re: AoA Proxy Model Thread

For a Kayne proxy, one could pick up Reaper’s IMEF Bulldog and replace the head with some sort of furry critter.

Great find! Here I thought I was going to have to settle with a Sentinel from GW for Kayne but this is a great alternative. I think the model you linked comes with an enclosed hatch if you didn't want to find a replacement from another kit (just imagine a squirrels in there or whatever Kaynes supposed to be).

Re: AoA Proxy Model Thread

Im going to dump some links here from Etsy that looked like pretty good Frostclaw alternatives along with the Bear Heroes. Finding Ordo Borelais lookalikes is going to be tough.

Re: AoA Proxy Model Thread

For bears, someone mentioned that Hasbro itself on a previous arctic themed Heroquest expansion actually used armored bears. They might do; the pics looked pretty good.

And thanks to everyone who contributes here!

My Thoughts

I was told by @OEAO about what to do here originally. I think a proxy that is similar but different is probably okay but it's a bit more nebulous which is one of the reasons I've tagged OEAO here so he can correct me if it's also something that should be avoided.
