Based on sales of the quads which are not many i'm reluctant to create yet another set of low volume sales cavalry proxies unless you can convince me otherwise.

Well, i'm pretty sure cavalery will be used more as proxies for popular units than quad bikes. I can think of 2 E:a armies that could use them as proxies...

The Desert Quad riders were supposed to be cavalry proxies - they're dudes riding horse-sized vehicles carrying close combat weapons (arabian-style curved cavalry swords).

Concept of kettenkrad cavalry attached...

Understandable. There are some differences though, quads are a bit of an unconventional design in the 40k aesthetic, which is more geared towards WWI and WWII designs. A quad is a bit of an oddball there whilst a German WWII tracked bike isn't, especially for a regiment that's already kinda WWII German themed.

I do agree that quad Calvary is an oddly difficult thing for people to swallow. You could always put it off to the side and revisit. Perhaps a print on demand service for the odd and ends? ;D

They are nice quads, but in the world of "drive me closer, I want to hit them with my sword", they seem a bit fragile. Additionally, I thought the kettenrad cav niche was already occupied...

Last time I checked, it was full of ill tempered big toothed pointy eared xenos. But maybe that's just me seeing things.

I like the kettenkrad cavalry but they might look more menacing and speedier than a lawn tractor with a bigger front wheel.
Just my dos centavos.

Would you make the tunics for these guys a little longer? I mean now their shirts are really short and they end with their belts, just a little longer ubder the belt. Then they would ne really nice proxies for Imperial Guardsmen if spikes are removed.

Yup, these ones, I was thinking exactly about them :D
The tunics dontbhave to be as long as those, but adding them to spikey troops would definitly make them look more guardish like.
