28mm Martian Blockhouses

 Here's a nice eBay rescue:

These foam core buildings were picked up from eBay. They arrived painted dark grey with a kind of $40K look about them.  I repainted them and gave them a nice flocking.  Now I have some actual Martian-style buildings to use, instead of recycled Northwest Frontier adobe huts.

For Mars, I tend to prefer green flock to red flock, since in the Space:1889 environment, most combat is going to take place in the canal zones, where the vegetation is. To paraphrase the film Laurence of Arabia: "There is nothing in the desert, and no man needs nothing."


 Figures by RAFM, artillery by Parhoom and Old Glory

Also included are some scratch-built artillery risers - made of polystyrene/styrofoam with cocktail sticks and coffee stirrers as planking.  These are useful if your terrain has non-standard walls.
