Mars Attacks!: a boy and his dog-thing

After I moved house last year, a whole lot of  prepped and ready to go minis have been stashed away in my drawers of more recent minis. Several kickstarters worth plus change actually…

So, being as flighty as I am, I have picked some that took my fancy for painting this minivember.

We start with a boy and his dog(thing):


These are from the Mars Attacks! kickstarter. A civilian juvenile boy and the Martian Scientists latest experiment, Wrex. I thought they make a lovely pair.

The Mars Attacks! humans double as contemporary zombie-apocalypse  survivors, which is a setting I have not done anything for …yet.

The minis are a bit soft detailed (and being Mantic truescale, have teeny tiny eyes which are really difficult to paint right.) And shallow detailing throughout. Soft and shallow is not a good combination, so I will keep it simple.
