I'd like to try out DE before forking out $$$ in case it turns out I don't like how they play.

What are some good proxies for flying vehicles like Venoms, Raiders, and Reavers?

In my Tyranid army, I was able to proxy Tervigons with Gladware.

Lolz. Great mental picture! I've seen a batman beyond batplane model floating around ebay that some people use for voidravens.
for all other proxies LEGOs are always the answer. (Unless it's a drop pod in which case coke cans for the win.)
If you have major origami skills I could see some swan raiders looking pretty cool.

There is an instructional booklet on how to make origami deathwing terminators which are awesome

Toy cars do ok for reavers as long as you remember they have some hight

LEGOs are sounding good. Yes, paperhammer would also be an option. I'm looking for proxies that don't require any assembly--might as well paint and glue real models at that point.

What's the closest recyclable thing to a skimmer? I did find a nice pizza box cutout for a warscythe, just cut out an arc.

Really, any rectangular shape about 8"x2.5"x4-5" tall floating 2" above ground would work for raiders, and 1/2 the length and height for the venom.

Go on to Bartertown and pick up old 3rd edition DE models. You can pick up an old army for CHEAP if you look around.

Another option if you don't want to use any proxies at all is to play on a Vassal client on your computer. They have sprites for all the armies a built in dice roller etc. You can play locally or over the internets. Even if you don't use it to proxy a new army it is handy for playing friends that are separated by distance. Hope that helps.

Just google vassal 40k and you should find what you need.
