"Bows and Arrows against the Lightning" - Part 2

With a few weeks before the next England Invaded outing....

Factories continue to produce weopons for the war effort.



Essex Crew and QRF Guns.
The extra heavy guns will have a Fire Factor of 8 within the Martian Empire rules and will be available to purchase at a cost of 160 points.


I have added a couple of limbers to pad out the order....
There is no call for them in the Martian Empire rules but they do look nice on the table...


The final packs of reinforcements for mankind arrived a few days ago.... I found some nice peices in Eureka's ranges which are fit for purpose (more of these later).
I painted up an additional command stand as a taster... 

Standing 18mm tall they are largered than the other figures in the collection, but look fine once painted and based.

That's all for now folks....

    2. Stu-
      What you have done re: Martian Invasion- has provided great interest so much so that I have had a good look at BlackHat 18mm Miniatures (UK)- and given great thought to possibly making up my own collection and have a crack at it all with Martian Empires rules- and keep it all in the vein of 1889 as you have done for War of The Worlds...really like the BlackHat miniatures- however - my beans are pretty short at the moment to do such a project...though I have invested in Mike Brunton's book on the 1895 War of the Worlds...(bought locally through e-Bay AUS for $24- and the book should be here for this coming weekend to read and be inspired)....strange isn't it - always liked the works of H.G.Wells and to game WofW as you have done would be most interesting and a lot of fun....I wouldn't say it is a distraction from my MARS 1832 Project - War of the Worlds in 18mm would be another alternative for me in Solo Gaming. I'm not sure if you realise that if I purchased 60 pounds worth of figures- that works out ( with postage) to be over $200 AUS....yep! It is dear to do. Regards. KEV.
