The Great Martian War

No, not anything to do with Mars Attacks but the History Channel "documentary" that having taped before Xmas I eventually found the time to sit down and watch this evening - and I loved it!

Recounting the story of the Martian invasion in 1913 and subsequent war through the next four years, the programme mixes "interviews" with survivors and historians with period combat footage (a mix of historical, historical with CGI embelishments and re-enactments) to decent effect.

I must confess that part of me was regretting not getting on board with the All Quiet on the Martian Front Kickstarter, but the more I think about it, 6mm is surely the best scale for this. Now do GZG still do those tripods?..
