ohn Carter: Swords of Mars—Miniatures: Due for release: Spring 2017
A line of collectible miniatures for use with the roleplaying game brings your adventures to the battlefield. Play small skirmishes or fight a war for the dying planet—scalable rules provide for both. Defend ruins against a horde of Tharks, raid the city of Helium to capture the Princess or take your battle airborne with the Red Martian navies.

These look great! I'm guessing they are 28-32mm?

Just curious if we have a more firm release date yet. "Spring 2017" could be as early as now...

I want them now. :-D

These models are "pretty", but not very Dynamic (in my opinion).

I would really like to see a little Frazetta-Frenetic-Flair in the poses...

I Second that "nudge"...

I know the images above are strictly preliminary, but I'm hoping you want honest feedback nonetheless, so here's my take on the figure previews...

Tharks/Warhoons - These are Spot-On!!! Don't change a cotton-pickin' thing!

White Apes - They look hairless, and their tiny-little feet make them look a bit like balloons-animals. I'd like to see more texture, bigger feet, and more weight.

John Carter - Looks like "A Prancing Man of Mars". How about more authentic combat poses?

Girl (Dejah?) - Pretty, but not bodacious or curvaceous enough. After all, she is the Beauty of Beauties, right?

Thanks for listening, and keep pushing to make this dream come to fruition!!!

You're spot-on with your comments, GavinGossett. After reading your thoughts I went back and looked at the feet of the white ape. Ugh. Disproportional. I don't mind JC's prancing, but a more combat-ready stance would be nice.
