    So what are folks using to proxy models for Kosmoflot?

    I'm putting together my lists and thinking about proxying for Kosmoflot like this:
    • Rokots -> Line Kazaks
    • Volkolak -> Frontovik with a Wulver headswap
    • Varangians -> Highlanders
    • Team Polaris Handler -> Line Kazak (I mean, a Antipode Pack controller would be better, but I have Line Kazaks available and don't have an Antipode Pack)
    The other thing I've been thinking about with regard to the Varangians as well as the Caterans and Wallace is that Kosmoflot is supposed to be Ariadna's space force, right? Boarding actions and the like? And so far the aesthetic we've seen for Kosmoflot has been very much like armored astronauts. Somehow I feel like kilts in space would be...problematic.

    Consequently, it's got me thinking about how I could convert other models to use for Varangians/Caterans/Wallace. I haven't gotten very far, though.

    Then there's the bigger problem, naturally, of converting and painting a Kosmoflot army and then having a big model release down the line.

    What are folks thoughts on this?

    I've just bought this guy on Etsy, I'll slap a spare Chain Rifle on him when he arrives and call it a day.

    It is definitely a quandary.
    I don't think that anyone will be upset about slightly differently painted Line Kazaks.
    I think that the other models you have chosen are the best idea at the moment.
    Plus I don't think anyone would mind going forward either.

    No one normally has a clue what my Ariadna models are anyway!!! lol

    Hopefully won't be long before we see the new shiny models.

    Actually, I had an idea after searching the forums for a while, for Varangians I think I'm going to use Valkyrie and Gunnar Lundstrom (it's not like Gunnar's gonna see the table for any other reason!)

    I've been using the Hakims for my Varangians since O12 came out. They got a few parts of their design that actually look similar to Ariadnan units, but a bit higher tech.

    I've been using Tank Hunters as my Volkolaks. I love the models to death. And never really get to use them. (Or they just sit under a marker the entire game.)
    They it the bare arms and a solid amount of armor. So I think they fit the bill pretty well. Also similar weapon options. Most importantly the HMG

    Also the Spetsnaz arms look great on them.

    I am just going to paint my other Ariadna models until Kosmoflot models are released.

    You know, I had been planning on using my Tankhunter HMG for an Unknown Ranger Conversion, but this is a really fantastic idea. I just need to see if I can get a spare Wulver who will be willing to donate a head. I had already decapitated the Tankhunter years ago because I was going to put the Airborne Ranger's head on him to make him look like Rock 'n Roll from GI Joe. But giving him a Wulver head to make him a Volkalak is a brilliant idea.
