Recreational Conflict sleds, Bronze Age Miniatures red Martians

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.
