SPACE 1889 Cavalry

Filed under: Forlorn Hope Games, SPACE 1889, Victorian Adventure Gaming — gisby @ 00:01

This is a sort-of SPACE 1889/Barsoom mashup.

Many years ago I bought a whole bunch of Ral Partha Hexatrixes to use as Thoats, but never did anything with them. They only had six legs, but it’s still more than four….thoatcav1

So I got a bunch of Wood  Elf cavalry from Forlorn Hope Games and mounted them on the Thoats. Apparently MY Mars has Thoats.





  1. More smashing conversions Gisby, that must be quite an impressive force you have once it’s all fielded together, John Carter and “Burroughs” in general is such a rich vain for Sci/FI inspiration. Top work as always mate.

    Cheers Roger.

    • Thank you Roger! As it turns out, this was all inspired by one flyer kit that is still in the box: I have painted more infantry, artillery, and flyers, and have 60 or so more cavalry in the painting queue, plus more regiments on the way. So there will be more to see. I hope it’s all as pleasing.
