Time for some VSF

Mars is dying...

Not through fault or neglect or wicked reason, not even because of the Gods; though some would say this is so. Mars is dying because it is old.

For time beyond count, our world has floated with the orb of the sun god, basking in the everwarmth that it provides, the Martian brothers sailing around giving constant company.

The Ancients warned the death of Mars might be so. Long, long ago; before the Storm. It is said the Storm lasted for an age or more: I for one, do not believe this to be true even though the clan elders warn me against foolish words.

There are still some Ancient writings in the deep deserts for those who wish to learn and are willing to brave sandstorms and the creatures that live there. Most of our knowledge from before the Storm comes from stories told around the clan fires, told again and again, embellished ever so lightly with each clan teller so who knows what is true and what is not.

With each storm season, the Ancient houses and temples disappear and reappear so fast that is easy to loose them completely, Gods know how large their cites were or what final secrets they contain. Three whole clans have been lost searching for the chief city with no sign or call from them these long years past.

But now we have new troubles and concerns. The Earthers have come to Mars: to steal and pillage what they can and to take it away to their blue world. Curse them to the Gods! They have no right, no honour and no need to be here. Like parasites they come here destroying whatever they touch and leaving mayhem in their wake.

They must be sent back across the sky ocean to their blue world.

They must be stopped.

It must happen now!

One of my big projects that has been going on for years (although it hasn't seen any recent activity) is the Japanese on Mars setting. Basically set in 1880 something, the great powers have landed on Mars and set up colonies and are having clashes between themselves and the local indigenous population.

There's so much of this project that I've done over the years and below is just a taster (there's also so much that I want to do for it in the future lol). What I will do in the coming months is sort out a general set of posts regarding the timeline that things were done in with battles reports dotted here and there and other posts of interest. There was a Red Planet Miniatures blog, linked below, which has a wealth of posts and it would be nice to continue it but I'll see how it all pans out.

There's also the Sky Martian models available in the catalogue, linked below, that will hopefully be added to over the summer/later in the year.
