2mm Tribal Martians for Land Ironclads


I finally had a chance to go through the contents of the army pack I ordered from Irregular Miniatures. Because there are no dedicated Martian figs in the Irregular line, I ordered an Earthly army that seemed like it would fit the feel of a Martian force. My original plan had been to do the army of a Martian city-state but the contents of the army were decidedly less organized so I decided to build a tribal coalition of wilder Martian nomads and such.

Everything in the pic, with the exception of the front cavalry block, came in the army pack and comprises a pretty decent size force. The infantry, beasts, and cav are mounted on 20x40mm bases with the artillery mounted on 20x30mm bases.

I won't go into too many details just yet. That can wait until they are painted, but this should be a fun project.

Take care,

-Eli

  1. I really like the wedge formations! They are looking good. I can see that you cut the trunks off the elephants to make them Martian beasts. Starwars made some jabbas skiffs in a smaller scale which you could probably use with these? I intend to use mine with my LI game.

  2. I am looking for skiff-like vehicles that I can use too, but the SW stuff can be hard to track down down.

  3. Pretty cool. I just never even thought about 2mm scale.

  4. I find 2mm to be a most addictive scale. It is so easy to throw together a large army and get playing. I've often considered slapping together a travel wargaming kit.
