After a complete restart (rare for me), I finished up my first model from Tin Man Miniatures. I donâ€™t recall anyone of this description showing up in ERBâ€™s Mars series, but it has been a long time since I read them. I was super-excited to find a miniature with pigtails, and although red martians are supposed to have dark hair there was already so much dark on her that she needed something lighter. After painting the hair, it was TOO light and drew way too much attention, so she needed something else to balance it out a bit â€“ thus the periwinkle bikini. I mean, once youâ€™ve committed to wearing a mask/capelet/bikini combo, is coordinating color really a concern anymore? The base is from Micro Arts Studios, skull pointed forward so we know sheâ€™s bad-butt. The main thing that bother me about her is that she does not have the â€œbutt-toothed vampireâ€ thing going on on the rear of her thighs. I used an airbrush to do the primary levels of skin highlighting, and it really stood out when I tried to paint the back of her legs with a brush. I scraped it off and left it mostly alone.
So I began my slow journey to barsoom gaming the other day, I'll not go into various gaming details here, suffice to say you can visit my blog for those. But here are pics of my first martian figure. Dejah Thoris Details of my Barsoom Gaming will be held in my blog. http://thefacelessking.blogspot.com/2013/07/my-journey-to-mars.html
I have always been a fan of Edgar Rice Burroughs' John Carter of Mars series of books. Based on what I have seen on the web, there is a small but steady interest in the material. The recent Disney movie was an interesting retelling of the John Carter story. Has anyone discussed the possibility of Reaper designing figures inspired by the books/movies? Are there existing miniatures in the Reaper line that already fill this niche? I have not seen any in my browsing of the Reaper store - have I missed something?
