John Carter Warlord of Mars

With the movie being released next week (March 9th) I thought I would post a few pics and details about the old Heritage licensed range from the early 80s. Sculpted by Max Carr they really capture how I pictured the characters when I first read the books back in the 70s. Some of the sculpts are a little basic by todays standards but that is what I love about old school minis. (BTW, Max is doing some great stuff at his new company, Barony Miniatures

Code 1503 contained the man himself and the incomparable Dejah Thoris......

The listing included a number of unreleased minis which may or may not have been sculpted before the licence was day we may find the unreleased 'greens'...
