SPACE 1889 Skirmishers

A unit of Martian Bowmen, formerly Wood Elves from Forlorn Hope Games.


I replaced all the bows with wire. (The bows were fine, I just usually replace weapons with wire.) The fellow second from the left has been given a sword to mark him as an officer.



  1. Wow Gisby those are gorgeous! a great re-imagining of these Elves and a smashing paint job.

    Cheers Roger.

  2. I’m glad I’m not the only one who has done this. The ones I used were from the Australian “Inquisition Miniatures” range.

    • That’s a new range to me, I’ll have a look at them. Thanks!

      • OK, so maybe I won’t since they appear to be gone. Oh well…

  3. Loving your Space:1889 work, especially the use of Grenadier elves – exactly what I’ve been doing for the past 3 or 4 years. I must take some pix to share with you at some point.

    • Thanks for the kind words! Please share the pics, I’d like to see what you’ve been doing.
