Looks like the Mars Attacks Miniatures Game is moving past the skirmish stage and onto something bigger…far bigger in fact…

Att-ack, Att-ack!

Bigger is Better!

Greenville was just a skirmish – now the real war for Earth begins! Take your Mars Attacks games to the next level with open scenarios, larger maps and free selection of troops for your army of choice. Will you take the defenders of humanity, massing troops and trucks led by mighty heroes? Or the numberless hordes of the Martian Empire, led by the most dastardly and deadly warlords the galaxy has ever seen? Either way, it’s time to go big or go home!

With the arrival of the Science Division and the Tiger Corps, the war for Earth has escalated – and now it’s set to engulf the entire world!

Mars Attacks: World War represents the next stage in Mars Attacks play and gives you a system of rules to play out that next step. Instead of prescriptive scenarios and set force lists, these rules take Mars Attacks closer to a tabletop wargame.

Whether you have played these kinds of games before, or this is your first time, this book will ease you through the process, introducing new concepts which will expand your games to reflect the wider conflict.

Exclusive Offer – Get World War for FREE!

Order Mars Attacks – The Miniatures Game from the Mantic Games Website before midnight BST Sunday 24th May and we’ll include Mars Attacks: World War – worth £9.99 – totally FREE of charge!

Go here now to get the crazy game of Martian Mayhem.

The first stage of the invasion is over – this is all out war. Will you take command of the vast Martian armies, hell bent on the destruction of every last human on the planet? Or will you take the role of humanity’s brave defenders: legions of marines and heroes standing firm as they fight for survival?

Either way, you’ll need an army to find out! And luckily we’ve got just the thing to help you build yours:

Mars Attacks: World War and a new range of Mars Attacks Army Sets are now available to pre-order from all good hobby retailers and the Mantic Games Webstore. They will begin shipping in May!

How well does the felt stick down to the grass mat? I feel that the ‘velcro’ effect would make this even more effective and I’m a big user of the grassmat. Otherwise, because I’d be using it for 40k, should I glue and pin the roads to carboard scraps to make it more solid?

Polska 1944 (36) – RONA. Poland 1944 (36) – RONA

Posted on April 17th, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

Dzisiaj coś czego sam do końca nie pomalowałem, tylko kilka detali. Jak wspomniałem o tym wczoraj, od Jima Duncana kupiłem kilka modeli, ale z nimi musiałem jeszcze kupić trochę niemieckiej piechoty. Nie do końca byłem zadowolony z kolorów mundurów i broni, ale kiedy przeglądałem moje książki, znalazłem zdjęcie żołnierza formacji RONA. Kolor tych figurek był bardzo zbliżony do tego na obrazku. Więc zmieniłem kolor broni z panzergrau na dunkelgelb, dodałem insygnia RONA na ich ramiona i w ten sposób mam nową frakcję.
Today something I did not paint completely, only few details. As I have mentioned about it yesterday I bought from Jim Duncan a few vehicles, but together with them I had to take some German infantry. I wasn’t quite happy with the collor of the uniforms and the weapons, but when I was checking my books, I found the picture of the RONA soldiers. And the color of the figures was very close to this on the picture. So I have changed the colors of the weapons, from panzergrau for dunkelgelb, added some RONA insignia on their shoulders, and here I have a new fraction.
Wszystkie figurki są przygotowane pod Rapid Fire. Zgodnie z tym jest to cały batalion (nie bedę potrzebował nigdy większej ilości, a jeśli tak, Bill Gilchrist ma zawsze coś na podorędziu). Nie mam pewności czy obecność broni ppanc, takich jak panzerfausty i panzerschrecki jest historycznie właściwe, ale dla mnie jest ok. Nie mogą przecież umierać za szybko…
All figures are based for Rapid Fire games. According to them it is whole battalion (I will never need more than this, if yes, Bill Gilchrist always have some available for the game). I’m not sure if the presence of so many AT weapons such as panzerfaust and panzerschreck is historically correct, but for me is ok. They cannot die to quick…
