I’ve seen a few people asking how big/bulky/etc the Mars Attacks models are, and having managed to scrounge up a couple yesterday I thought I’d do a few comparison shots for your amusement.
The MA models look like they’re made of frozen milk because they’re 3D prints and that may be what they’re actually made from. Whatever it is, it’s translucent and very hard to pick out details, but that’s not why we’re here. There are lovely photos of the nicely painted models all over the Kickstarter, Mantic’s blog and so on. This is all about size.
I’ve tried to prop up models where appropriate so that the bases are close to the same height. I may be out by a tiny bit, but we’re talking under a mil, so the tops of the models are pretty close to right. Oh, and the final version of the Martians will naturally have a clear goldfish bowl on their heads too. Don’t forget that.
So, first up, how do the Mars Attacks models compare to Mantic’s other SF models? Here we have a Corporation trooper and an Orx. The Corporation model is a normal human in a bit of body armour, but isn’t all bulked out or bioengineered, so should be a good comparator for the Mars Attacks GI.
