Next up we have a post from PatG. This is Pat's first post for this year's challenge, and I believe first post ever. So welcome aboard Pat!
|Martian Artillery With Native and Askari Crew|
|Askari with Mountain Guns|
Martian Askari in British service with two ex-civil war 12 pounder howitzers. Again the guns are standalone so not full points. I love these infantry sculpts. My painting style and skill does not do them the justice they deserve. (75 points)
|Hill Martian Skirmishers|
|Canal Martian Light Infantry|
|Canal Martian Lancers|
That's 370 points towards my goal of 500 and I have more mounted to come.
Thanks to all for providing the push to get all these done.
Well done on breaking your duck Pat, that makes a pretty good sized point bomb. This is a fine collection of figures from a rather goofy range that I had forgotten existed. I have painted a lot of Rafm figures in my day, and there are some typical Rafm poses in the mix. In fact I think I have some of the 1889 redcoats in my colonial forces.
It is a pity that they don't do variants of some figures, like the rifle musket armed dudes who are all firing at a full run. I like your use of colour on that group to provide variety and the hat colours to denote factions and commanders. Your basing gives a good impression of a red, arid and rocky terrain which seems about right to me. I also like your repurposing of the fire projectors and ballistas.
I have noted Tamsin's comment below and adjusted Pat's score to a nice round even 400.
