Mars is dying...

Mars is dying...

Not through fault or neglect or wicked reason, not even because of the Gods; though some would say this is so. Mars is dying because it is old.

For time beyond count, our world has floated with the orb of the sun god, basking in the everwarmth that it provides, the Martian brothers sailing around giving constant company.

The Ancients warned the death of Mars might be so. Long, long ago; before the Storm. It is said the Storm lasted for an age or more: I for one, do not believe this to be true even though the clan elders warn me against foolish words.

There are still some Ancient writings in the deep deserts for those who wish to learn and are willing to brave sandstorms and the creatures that live there. Most of our knowledge from before the Storm comes from stories told around the clan fires, told again and again, embellished ever so lightly with each clan teller so who knows what is true and what is not.

With each storm season, the Ancient houses and temples disappear and reappear so fast that is easy to loose them completely, Gods know how large their cites were or what final secrets they contain. Three whole clans have been lost searching for the chief city with no sign or call from them these long years past.

But now we have new troubles and concerns. The Earthers have come to Mars: to steal and pillage what they can and to take it away to their blue world. Curse them to the Gods! They have no right, no honour and no need to be here. Like parasites they come here destroying whatever they touch and leaving mayhem in their wake.

They must be sent back across the sky ocean to their blue world.

They must be stopped.

It must happen now!

Figure photos and some news

Good evening :-)

We've taken a few, better photos of the first releases; both painted and unpainted basically to show you what you get in a pack and the configurations possible. There is also a picture of a new realease and some news of what's in the pipeline.

Firstly a picture of the pack contents for the first releases. The infantry pack has four different leg options, two different heads (enough to have the entire pack with the same head gear), an assortment of weapons and enough arms for the bodies supplied.

The leader is a single casting but there are more leader types in progress, possibly with multipart options but that yet to be decided.

Next is a picture of an infantry pack assembled. The amount of different poses available, even without conversion, is quite good. With conversion, the possiblities are endless :-)

 Here is a comparison shot with an Oshiro Japanese officer from the Boxer rebellion range and a Wargames Foundry Imperial Chinese infantryman. Our Martians were made to be big!

Here we have a warband ready to reign terror on the earthers...

What we have coming up next are some missile troops and these will be released very soon (before Warfare). Spiky bolas!


Very soon there will be pictures of a Martian skiff that will be realesed as a kit and it will have enough room to hold 17 Martians plus some crew. We will also have some photos of the lower class troops and some different weapons. There will also be some battle reports showing our Martians in themed terrain just to help you visualise them on the field of combat.

Thank you :-)


  1. Those miniatures looks great!! Looking forward to seeing the skiff.

  2. Thank you.

    Should have some skiff wips later today (after Colours).

  3. These are wonderful - will you be offering separate packs of weapons for conversion purposes?

  4. We will indeed, I'm working on some hand weapons at the moment and also some spiky bolas for the Sky Martians weapon of choice.
