Previews of Barsoomian Figures
« on: September 15, 2016, 08:14:31 PM »
You can find previews of new minis that will soon be released by TinMan here http://johnwintersculpting.blogspot.com/.
There is a mild NSFW factor for those who wish to know such things.

Dumb question, does that include the new mounted stuff?  Also, how long is the body of that skiff miniature?

The mounted figures were not finished in time as it can take a couple of months to get a figure through the mold maker's queue of work.

The skiff is only a couple of inches long and can hold two minis comfortably as pictured below.

Thanks.  Think I can find a use for a few of those.

Those minis are so beautiful.
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

Please allow me to salivate at this magnificent spectacle. I will temporarily be devoid of all dignity and shame while doing so. ;D

Yes, they would work quite nicely in smaller scales. Oh for some 15mm Barsoom!

Yes I have a few in the larger scale for VSF and wish I could find something as good in 15/18mm as I transition scales/sizes of figures.

Me, too, brothers. Alas, who will hear our calls? I had always hoped Highlander would start making some after his really good Space 1890 and Tarzan models...

Forget 15mm, if you were to add a side railing ,and maybe raised archer platform fore and aft, that would make an awesome flying galley in 6mm  :D :D :D

I have some Bronze Age fantasy stuff which is ok next to Tin Man not-Barsoom; in general Tin Man looks slightly higher and thinner. I think the real problem will be the not-Green Martians, but I wouldlove to see comparison shots.

Good to know, I have some Bronze Age pirates so would probably be just fine to match, thanks!
