Two Martian Tripods

Buck

In the continuing effort to reduce the unpainted lead collection, I knocked out these two tripods this weekend.  I went with battleship gray for the paint scheme thinking that they might be Earth imitations of Martian tripods (I have the ones from here to be real Martians).  They looked too clean, so I gave them a heavy brown wash.

I like the quirkiness of these. They look like water towers on legs to me.

I bought these at Barrage 2017.  I may buy a third one at Barrage 2019 if they are available.  They were pretty easy to assemble, and they painted quickly.

  1. These look great and I’m sure will be awesome in a GASLIGHT game.
