This blog will will contain my rather pedantic ramblings on my experiences within the miniature war gaming hobby. There will be informative how-to’s, thrilling battle reports and thought provoking editorials. I fully expect that history will one day view the contents of this blog on par with Homer’s Illiad or Newton’s Principalia. Or it's a complete waste of time.
All Quiet on the Martian Front: Les Bon Ton Meurtriers Martiennes
One of the US units that I'm painting up for All Quiet on the Martian Front (AQMF) will be a Louisiana Militia unit - the "famed" Les Bon Ton Meurtriers Martiennes (the good time Martian Murders). I grew up near New Orleans and always liked the culture so I wanted to have a Mardi Gras "themed" force. This will be a mixed force unit and will have infantry armor and some artillery.
Each armored unit will have some form of a Mardi Gras flag to designate it. Here these Mark II's have a diagonal striped flag in the traditional purple, yellow and green. These tanks appeared in a previous post with had painted flags but they were't very good so I've repainted and used some down loaded flags from the google image library.
Next up some Mark III's with a more traditional "fluer de lis" flag, which is also very prevalent during the lead to Mardi Gras.
Another shot of the Mark III's. I've started painting some infantry and will add in some rough riders and artillery to complete the unit. One of the fun things of AQMF is the freedom one has to create units to match a theme. It's been a lot of fun to paint up
