The Chinese

Despite my lethargy reaching an alltimehigh, I still managed to dig out some brushes and slap a few washes and some block colours on my Chinese westerners/ this last week. I also managed another simple 'conversion'.
[The two women, coming along, nicely from my pov]
The 'conversion; consited of cutting a rifle barrel off one figure and adding two filed and shaped cocktail sticks tp make a shotogun, so nothing drastic.
[The rear view of the women]

[Two chinese with shoulder arms, shotgun on the right]
[Two chaps with shovels, little done n these]
[Four chaps armed with improvised melee weapons]
[The whole group, showing many rear views]
This whole exercise has been an experiment to see what works and doesn't work with these figures. I did think that these would be fairly easy to paint, but that has;t been th case and I'm still learning.

In real-life, I've once more had a a routine hospital visit with another routine clinic visit (tba) on the horizon. I've also had visit to an optician to review my current faiing eyesight and needs. 
SWMBO is continuing to improve  - thanks for al the well wishes, but continues to need continual support.

Thanks for taking the time to visit and as always your comments are both welcomed and appreciated...
... and I will get around to visting al the blogs I normally do, time permitting.

  1. Great looking progress on your Chinese element Joe, you've got a perfect Asian skin tone going on, which can be very hard to achieve.
    Hope all goes well with your routine visits, and there is nothing to worry about.
    Good to hear your good lady is doing well and on the mend
