SPACE 1889: Martian Marines


I’m building the crew and guns for my laser-cut skyship. I intend to build it over the Winter, but I want to have the crew ready for when it is finished.


These figures are ex-Grenadier miniatures from Forlorn Hope Games. The female greatswordsman is from their Amazons range, and the crossbowmen are Dark Elves. (I have a unit of them here)


The axemen/swordsmen  in surcoats are High Elves.


The musketeer is a Dark Elf crossbowman, converted to a musketeer.

Because the SPACE 1889 Martians were designed to resemble GW Elves, (and so were everyone else’s) the Forlorn Hope Elves add a nice variety to my Martian forces.


  1. More smashing stuff gisby, I like that female elf immensely, have you checked out Kallistra’s elves, they would be a good mix with these as they are I very much the same style, pretty cheap as I remember too.

    Might be worth a look.

    Cheers Roger.

    • I had a look, many thanks! They are certainly an option that I’ll look into further. (And their 12mm Romano-British has an odd appeal, too)
