[Finished] The First Martian Tripod

Well it's been a long time between updates, pretty inexcusable but a combinations of things has prevented me from having much hobby time. Hopefully this has all changed, I finally managed to find a decent job lately so I should have the funds to start expanding this project into the areas that I want to.

Anyway enough of the excuses, time for some pictures.

First up we have a shot of the first Martian walking machine to emerge from the cylinders on Horsell Common.

The Martian tripod was painted with a combination of Games Workshop and Vallejo Model Colour over a base coat of GW Chaos Black spray. Base courtesy of an old CD, covered with GW sand and static grass with the odd dot of Woodland Scenics clump foliage.

And just because I haven't had any updates posted on the site for over a year some bonus pictures, it's all been covered in previous updates but the landship is a converted Pendraken British WW1 Mark V and the ruins are Games Workshop Epic 40,000 ruins.

Baccus 6mm Colonials support the Pendraken 10mm Mark V. The two scales match up quite well here and I'm hoping to plunder the Pendraken range for more Landships in the future.

  1. Beautiful - good to see you back posting - it was worth the wait - that Tripod is excellent - looks really insectoid, menacing....alien - just as it should be.... some great baseing work, too.

    Keep it up and show us more!

  2. Looks fantastic. And congrats on finding a good job, I'm currently going through the job hunting process myself...

    Look forward to seeing the tripod in action!

  3. @SteelonSand. Thanks for the reply. It's great to see you back blogging too, hopefully my updates should be more plentiful in the future, glad you like the miniature. It's a real shame it can't go into production. :)

    @Chris. Thanks for the reply. I hopefully will get a battle report done some time in the near future, still struggling to find a rule set that I can adapt. Good luck in finding a job, have been there and done that a few times. :)

  4. Very cool paint scheme & base on the tripod, & the infantry look great.
