The idea of Rough Riders On Mars! came to me after I completed the initial draft of my Edison's Conquest Of Mars wargame rules. These rules are somewhat based on the novel by Garret P. Serviss of the same title as well as elements from numerous other sword and planet novels. Currently, the rule book contains 31 pages of background information (without illustrations, which will be added later) 18 pages of game rules, a variant of The Sword And The Flame. I may change the rules to a variant of my Spanish-American war rules, Rough Riders! before publication.
At any rate, I thought that those following my story might like to see what my interpretation of a Martian army would look like. So here is a sneak peek of the 15mm Martians that I hope to one day release through TVAG.
Here is the second type of Martian heavy cavalry. They ride Moa-nui.
