High Martians

Before I post the AAR from our "France Needs Liftwood" game from Cold Wars, I decided to post pictures of my finished High Martians.



The set above were finished at the end of February of this year, and I'm well pleased with the result.  It might be hard to make out, but the "king" Martian has a bit of a French Tricolor adorning his mace of office.




The next picture shows miniatures I finished back around 1990-ish.  My colour-sense seems to have remained unchanged, but the final effect is "muddier" than my more recent work. Nice to know I've improved a bit over the years.

The gap in painting timelines was remedied by Pat G.'s excellent High Martian rules write-up for Soldier's Companion.  Prior to this, we'd never used high Martians in flight for combat.  For our Cold Wars  game, we adopted Pat's rules "whole cloth", and were well-pleased with the result.
