I posted pictures of these when I first finished them a few months back. I used a light orange dry brush to highlight the “high points.” Everyone thought the light orange was too close to flesh color and made them look naked. Last week, I repainted their leotard outfits in a darker orange.
Above and below are the Venusians facing off against some creatures from Recreational Conflict.
Recreational Conflict makes the deep sea diver or space man (depending on how you want to use it). The larger one is supposed to be sized for 28mm figures, and the smaller ones are sized for 15mm. I bought the large ones some time ago and painted them up for my undersea GASLIGHT game. I saw the small ones at Fall In, and picked up two packs. I plan to use them as drones or robots controlled by one of the larger ones. I may also mount them onto bases when we begin work on Look, Sarge, No Charts: Victorian Science Fiction.
At an HMGS convention some time back Wargames Factory was distributing some of their Zulu War British as samples. The guys in my club gave me their figures. I’ve had them assembled, primed, and based for some time. As I don’t game the Zulu War, I wasn’t sure what to do with them. In preparation for our Historicon GASLIGHT Mars extravaganza, I’ve been painting figures. See previous posts. This weekend I finished my Brits painted for service on Mars.
The uniform is similar to the Zulu War uniform. While the British Army on Earth has converted to khaki, it was determined that the red coats were actually camouflage on Mars. The red coats were retained, but worn over khaki trousers, rather than blue. The khaki takes on an orange tinge after service in the red soil of Mars.
Here is a picture of those newly-painted British troops receiving a charge from green Martians.
