By now, I’m guessing that most of you will have seen this:
This was a first go at a test model for the Martians. I don’t know quite why, but the clear dome looks endlessly cool on a model. At least, it does to me. The only place I can think of in the wargaming world that did this before en masse was Bob Naismith’s old Cobalt Marines, and I only ever saw them in pictures. Looked fun though.
The model has since been tweaked to get to the following 3D render.
The main differences are that the revised version is a bit less delicate. The first one is really lovely, but I’m not sure how much handling it would cope with. The revisions make it a bit more practical for the gaming table and also add more detail, mainly to the face. It’s hard to compare a grey render to a painted model though. Trust me. It’s for the best 😉
As you can see, we’re going for a bit bigger than the 15mm we originally discussed for this project. Well, maybe you can’t see as there are no size comparisons. Either way, you can take my word for it. These aren’t 15mils.
