I think these Ben Siens’ sculpts* (?) have a decidedly “Barsoomian” red planet feel to them, don’t you think? :)

I’m really thinking of getting a few sets.  I already have lots of desert terrain for something “Barsoomian” like that. I even bought a red desert gaming mat from Urban Matz.  Now it’s time to populate those crumbling ruins with some ancient native “peoples”.

I think they could could look very nice on an airship too!  Thoughts?

Hello again Dan,
I think they would look great for a red mars faction though I did mine as an alien faction not tied to any universe.

They are great minis, though be warned that they take time to paint well as they have lots of detail ( e.g they have tusks , fraggin' small things ;D !!)

WOW, those look mighty fine!  Gorgeous skin colors.



I can just as easily imagine these guys walking out of a Stargate or some other interstellar travel portal.  Very nice!

Thanks Dan.
Oh yes. They would look in place in stargate. Come to think of it ... I can imagine them with Anubis helmets also.
