Second squad of Martians

The second Martian squad is finished. The bases are just flat grey for the moment. Since they are essentially board game pieces, I will do all the bases in a style that fits the gaming mat once all the minis are painted.
This makes 20 regular Martian Grunts and finishes that part of my Martian forces. I also have 5 Martian Marines, 5 Martian Stealth Troopers, about a dozen Science Troops including a big-ass ant and half a dozen Martian characters, a Flying Saucer and a Giant Stompy Robot. For the humans we are looking at ten soldiers, a dozen heroes, some allied aliens and the Novas Vira gang.

The dream is still to finish the whole lot before Dungeon Saga is delivered, but we'll have to see about that.

You can't see it in this picture, but they have a white stripe on their nitrogen tanks to distinguish them from 1st squad. And in case someone wonders, their helmets were attached using super glue and no misting occurred.

    1. We should indeed! There is a lot more to come and nothing inspires painting like the prospect of an actual game.

  4. Just a suggestion, so you won't risk crazing the transparent helmets, use Canopy Cement; it's what all the aeroplane geeks use for canopies.

    1. Thanks for the tip. I shall have a look at the FLGS. It has worked fine so far, but I have a saucer and a robot to go and their canopies are bigger and made from a different plastic.
