SPACE 1889: Martians

Of course you want random personalities for 1889 games and battles, and there are plenty of choices and ranges that can be found. These are a few of my recent conversions and repaints.


An Old Glory Tarzan painted as a Wyrm Cultist, and a pair of plastic D&D figures. Replacement swords are made from wire hammered flat.martrand1

3 Forlorn Hope female Elves


3 old GW Elves


3 plastic D&D figures. Swords and bows are wire. The female archer has the quiver from the bird-handler in the next row.


A plastic D&D figure, with 2 RAFM Martians with D&D heads.


  1. You must have quite the collection by now Gisby, I’m loving the personalities, especially the two ladies with the bows. I am also always in awe of how you make the swords out of wire, very innovative and they look great.

    Cheers Roger.

    • For straight swords we used to use hair pins (bobby pins) because they were flat in section and hardened so they didn’t bend easily.
