Painted Martian complete!

Here are some pictures of the first production model Martian now painted. The Martian is now ready for sale through Eureka miniatures. Keep checking their website for official notice.


Queen Victoria (Gaud blessah!) comes face to face with her nemesis. Professor Pratt offers his scientific opinion of the creatures biology.

If anyone wants to paint their Martian the same as mine, this is what I did.
Resin body was cleaned in detergent and any small air bubbles filled with putty or removed with a dremel. The metal tentacles were are drilled and pinned and glued with super glue (important). The completed model was then undercoated in Chaos Black.

Base coat was GW  Lyanden Dark Sun foundation paint. When dry this was given a wash of Bestial Brown and then drybrushed with a 50/50 Bestial Brown/Skull White mix.

Eyes and mouth were Mechrite Red foundation paint, followed by a wash of Scab Red and highlights with Blood Red.

Ear drum was Lyanden Dark Sun base coat, followed by thin coat of Snakebite Leather and then a wash of Gryphonne Sepia with a light dry brush of 50/50 Snakebite Leather/Skull White to finish.

When completely dry the model was given a good coat of a satin varnish.


  1. Nice. Very usable in 15mm gaming I think

  2. Hmm, the two Martians are different colours... is one of them photosynthesising under our stronger sunlight, do you think? Or has one of them just got a tan?

    As I said elsewhere, lovely work. Both kinda funny, and unsettling at the same time, which is a great trick to pull off.
