Barsoom Part I


It's been a while since the last update but here it is. Through J.W. (blog) I have been able to buy a heap figures of the Bronze Age Miniatures Barsoom series. J.W. has kindly sent the dynamic trio of Tars Tarkars, Dejah and John ahead of the rest and I have painted them up. First off: they are much nicer in real life but photography has messed up the details as well as the colouring.

Let's start with the big one. Tars Tarkas is a great mini, the weapons come as separate parts and make for nice fits. The only problem I had with the mini is that he was not wearing the Jeddak's white fur cloak so I sculpted it on with GS.

The base is the base form the Hitech Mini's figure I recently won in a prize draw. It just fitted the Mars theme perfectly.

Next are the two star crossed lovers Dejah Toris and John Carter. Let's not mess around with this: I hate the John miniature. The pose is okay but the facial expression and his outfit are just about well enough for a generic Barsoomian warrior. Dejah is fine.

Cheers Sander

Tars is an epic model and I like what you've done with him and the base is super cool. I like the nude, but I think you need to bring the highlights way up on her buttocks and breasts. Those should look full and rounded.
