A Princess of Mars
« on: September 22, 2020, 07:03:46 PM »
"She was indeed the proud daughter of a thousand jeddaks, every inch of her dear, precious little body; so small, so frail beside the towering warriors around her, but in her majesty dwarfing them into insignificance; she was the mightiest figure among them and I verily believe that they felt it"

Great figure from Tin Man. I got the (probably wrong) impression from the photo of the unpainted figure that there might be a significant mold line across one shoulder. How was she to paint?

Easy to paint once I got the right mix of red and light brown for the skin color. I also added the sword.

I would love to do some John Carter games, but I find miniatures an issue. I love the Tin Man miniatures, but the cost of getting a lot from 5he States is prohibitive. The Bronze Age figures aren’t quite modest enough. I quite like the Modiphius figures, but they are about 32mm. That also means they wouldn’t mix with the other ranges. In all cases, large monsters are expensive. I long for something that equates to these ranges in 15/20mm. Partly this is because I have the idea of doing some boarding actions between flyers. Peter Pig and Martian Empires Figures would be the only options (maybe a smattering from Ral Partha). Nothing available in that scale is “floating my flyer” for characterisation.
