I decided to list 6 potential projects and then let a die decide the outcome. The idea is that these will all be things I want to work on, but I can drop the one selected after it has been worked on and replace it with something new if I like. To start with I picked:
1 Judge Dredd
2 Rogue Trader
3 Muskets and Tomahawks
5 Land Ironclads
6 Mars Attacks
One die roll later and my fate for March was decided: Mars Attacks!
So the question is, what to paint! As the idea is to paint something new and play a game with the selected project, it seemed to make sense to paint the forces for the first scenario in the rule book. That would be 5 Martians and 8 U.S. Soldiers. As that leaves me not too short of a squad on each side, I decided to up this to 10 Martians and 10 Humans. So now I'm looking at:
As each squad has the same paint scheme, it should hopefully not be too tricky to paint these in a batch. Let's see how we go!
