Heldrak those are really nice - brilliant skin tone. I always thought the discussions re Black Martians being the same as coloured men on Earth was wrong and you have the perfect solution to that argument!

I had tried to get my first born painted like Nubian 's on earth. I couldn't get it, though. Your recipe, Heldrak looks like a winner.

Now Bronze Age just needs to produce some yellow Martians and some Holy Therns and we'll be all set...!

As promised, I thought I would post my recipe for Green Martian skin. Here are some pictures of Tars Tarkas from my LPL IV Round 10 entry:





Tars was done with elements of the Foundry Moss Green triad over a black undercoat. I started with Foundry Moss Green 29A, then washed that lightly with the Citadel Gnarlock Green wash, thinned 1-3 with water. Then I applied a 50/50 mix of the Foundry Moss Green Shade (29A) and the Foundry Moss Green Mid-tone (29B). Then I highlighted with the Foundry Moss Green Mid-Tone by itself. The Foundry Moss Green gets very yellow as you go up through the highlights and I didn't want to compromise Tar Tarkas' green color, so I stopped there. His teeth and tusks were done with the Foundry Bone triad and his tongue with the Foundry Purple shade and mid-tone colors. I did the pupils of his large eyes in black with a tiny white fleck of highlight in the center of the pupil (although Burroughs specifies that Green Martian's pupils are red).

Now that my Martians can finally rest from their labors in the LPL, here is a scale comparison photo showing a Bronze Age Dead Earth Imperial (Martian) against a Copplestone Castings figure and a couple of others:



While looking on figure number 3 I've realised that I had 1 quote in my mind:
"I am NOT Dixon Hill! I just look like Dixon Hill!"
