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.
The white ape will act as a “wandering monster” in the Mars game.
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.
