Inspiration - Martian Heavy Cavalry

So, looking over some recent offerings by Khurasan Miniatures, I saw something in their line of 15mm Kushan figures that gave me an idea for a potential new troop type for those fighting on a VSF Mars. Now, keep in mind that I do not play VSF Mars, but I do like to keep an eye out and share inspirations that I find out there.

The figures in question are

Of course the horses are right out, but these figures, mounted on your favorite Martian native mount would make for a great heavy cavalry unit. Painted the padded armor as some sort of Martian animal hide or even as metal and they will look suitably exotic and alien enough to really impress on the table. There is also a version of these with spear and shield, but Khurasan doesn't have pics up yet.

I do hope you enjoyed this idea and I hope that if anyone decides to use this idea, you'll share the results.

Take care,

-Eli

  1. Hey Eli! Thanks again for pointing these out to me.

    I'll be looking into buying some later this year. I have mounts left over from the deathray cavalry that I can use.

  2. No problem,

    Like I said, I may not have any use for the idea, but I was sure somebody else can use it.
