Chris and I are getting ready to run a large (20+ player) Mars game with GASLIGHT at Historicon this Summer. In preparation, I’ve been painting green Martians (see previous post, Bronze Age Miniatures) and now red Martians (also Bronze Age Miniatures). I also picked up the hover sled from Recreational Conflict at Fall In in November. I have been working on them a little at a time over the past couple of weeks. This weekend I finished them.
The Bronze Age red Martians come in packs of five. I didn’t realize until I got home that one of the “citizen” backs was missing a couple of swords. I wrote an Email to the company, but they never responded. I reached into my bit box and found some extra Moro swords from Pass of the North. You can see one in the picture above.
The sled also had a nice interior, as can be seen above. I chose to go with an orange color scheme, thinking it would blend with Martian terrain.
I have some Wargames Factory plastic Zulu War British that I am painting in orange uniforms for Martian service. Stay tuned for pictures of them in the near future.
