From the announcement:

Proxy Army is a new miniatures gaming company using 3D printing to give gamers the opportunity to fully customize and personalize their units.

Proxy Army gives you command of every part of your army. With our modeling and 3D printing process you can clip together a new model like Lego, using our extensive database to bring your visions into reality. From concept to beautiful ultra-detail model, you direct every step of the way. You can even work directly with our team of designers and get entirely original units made, giving you the power to craft an army limited only by your imagination. We’ve got 2 levels of miniatures; personalized and original.

When you order a personalized Proxy War model, you log onto our database of parts and grabs torsos, limbs, chassis, mutations, powers, equipment, and technology. You then clip them together to create an entirely custom model you can pose and personalize to your tastes. Personalized models can be 3D printed in any of our three materials; high detail plastic, regular reinforced plastic, and colored sandstone.

With an original Proxy War model, you partner with a three man design team: a character artist, an illustrator, and a 3D modeler. They work with you full time to go all the way from a concept to a finished high-detail prototype. We then help you share your creation with the community, putting it up on our website and giving you a percentage of the profits.

We will be coming out with a Kickstarter for Proxy Army on November 5th

    Ha… from their website…

    “Proxy War allows players to field any units they can imagine, from grim super soldiers to ninja catgirl pirates. “

    Well.. I can do all 3 so I really need to buy a 3d printer…

    Cool startup though.. if it’s reliable, it’ll create a huge change in dynamics of miniature buying.

    S you say, if it is reliable. If it is, man oh man. A friend of mine has a 3d printer almost ready to go. I can hardly wait to print some little men.

      Yeah, I’ve been chatting with the Maxmini guys about 3d printing.. they say it’s a quite lengthy process per model.. plus, if the scale is off, you have to do it all over again.
      I priced 3d printers 3 or 4 years ago and the pricing was something like $10k and the refills of the material were insanely expensive.

      So.. in terms to this project.. and service, by reliable, I mean.. affordable, timely, and doesn’t turn around and sell your models. If I were to have someone else print my models.. it would be for the game I have developed… so that would defeat the purpose.
