Chris and I continue to paint figures for our 20-layer GASLIGHT Mars game for Historicon.  Early this morning I finished my second unit of Red Martians.  In this picture they are fighting off a white ape.  All figures are Bronze Age.

This picture shows a slightly different view of the figures.  I painted the skin a light orange and then applied Windsor Newton nut brown ink.

Ironclad miniatures makes these Jawa-looking figures for science fiction games.  I like them as Martian desert raiders.

Ironclad makes a couple of different types of cannons to go with these figures.

The ground cloth for our game is a color, called copper canyon.  We used a variety of spray paints to give it a mottled look.
