i've watched ghosts of mars a couple of times and think it might be fun to run as a skirmish game. The Martian ghosts in humans can be made up of zombie types. The civilians are pretty easy. What troubles me are the Martian police. With their thigh Length leather jackets.

Can anybody direct me to a figure 25 mm that looks like these people óMen and women. I could always do head changes for the latter As anatomy doesn't seem to show through :-)

Has anybody actually done this is a game?

The ghosts of mars infected my message!

Lol. Apparently so!

I always wondered … if you just shot off the knee caps, would they then kill themselves to transfer to another body? The ones who were locked up didn't take their own lives, so perhaps I already have my answer. :)

The dark gray MPF jackets were cool.

Altfritz, Thanks for those links, I've never seen those ranges before. Might be useful for some other projects. The coats are too long for the look I seek.

Looking for something that is thigh length.

Mad Robot Miniatures I strongly recommend as your primary source for parts.

Then I would look at Anvil, Kromlech and Max mini for additional parts.

Terrakami for the Mag Lev Train

I have a website saved in my bits folder that makes female heads but I cannot recall the name of it if I remember I will try to find it tonight after work.

I have not done this in a game but this movie is useful for making chaos cultists for 40K and Necromunda Scavvies.

Oh and one final suggestion I would try Hero Forge 3D printing it can be expensive but if you only need to make a few personality models (i.e. Pam Greer) it might be the way to go.

Little known fact….Ghosts Of Mars was supposed to be the Mutant Chronicles movie. Warzone Necromutants and other Dark Legion models would serve well…

Really, hmm.
I'm still kicking myself -hard- that I never got the set of -80 Imp. & Bauhaus- plastic mini's when I had the chance. They'd still be in my 'one day' stash, but I'd have'm.

Victoria Minis Tannenburg Fusiliers or Victorian Guard?

They're GW proportions, though.

I think the closest match for the pics would be Victorian Guard legs and torsos with Tannenburg heads.

@Part time gamer- I thought I saw someone in the marketplace selling them…
@LionStars- I need to order a few of her pieces to round off my Praetorian Guard I'm "one day" using for VSF…

Really Capt.?, I will have to look into that. Right or Wrong, that's for the tip partner.

Have to confess, I'm so behind and 'out of it', I never knew this Movie/Show existed, looks like it is/was pretty cool. But not the first one that went right past me.
