Hinchliffe Models Martian Range


Well, Hinchliffe Models were one of the main English wargaming mini companies of the 70s and early 80s. Their move into the SF and F genre was never, I believe, a totally serious one as they were historical designers at heart however I love the old school styles and they are a necessary addition to any serious collector.......sculpted by the late Peter Gilder (who started his career in the 60s whilst working as a pie-machine salesman)....see Vintage 20mil on Miniature Figurines history

On to the range itself...............

SF10 was possibly the figure for John Carter himself......                                         
                                                                             



SF11 was a Martian Princess so the incomparable Dejah Thoris takes form once again.......


SF8 Green Martian.... striking terror into all who beheld....


SF17 Green Martian mounted on Thoat


All these pics are mine and more (including other contributors) are on the Lost Minis WIKI. If anyone happens to know which sculpt sits in for SF15 please let me know......
