Some Royalty and Retainers from Barsoom


For a bit of a diversion, I've gone back to my John Carter of Mars project to add a few more models to my modest collection.

Here is a regal princess of the Martian city-state of Zodanga, along with her retinue of bodyguards.


These 28mm figures are from TinMan Miniatures. Really beautiful models, very elegant and quite slight in their design, with very little preparation required to get them ready for painting. A real joy to work on.





Thankfully, I have a few more figures from this range waiting in the wings. Who knows, maybe I'll treat myself to another batch before summer is out.

Next: Something Spanish!

  6. Beautiful work on those minis, CC - and thanks for introducing me to TinMan Miniatures. I had never heard of them before, but their catalogue is very enticing. I love how they have both family-friendly and "adult" versions of some of their sculpts.

  8. Pure awesomeness Curt! These ladies definitely have the cool factor already sculpted in but your painting brings them to a whole different level.

    1. Why thank you, Nick! As you know, it always helps the brush when the subject is so well realized.
