What miniatures did you purchase lately?

That's a bonus then. I think the figures are by Footsore or at least the sculptor. They are top notch,  though I'm a but unimpressed with the actual game. Some of the MDF buildings that go with the game are fabulous.

This 75mm beauty popped through my letterbox a couple of Saturdays ago. I haven't started assembling the resin kit yet though.

Later this week maybe.

Impressive and very dynamic model! Though I feel like the rider is looking quite a bit too large compared to the horse.

You might well be right.

Then again, it's a figure of a semi-legendary character riding a 6th Century BC Chinese Pony, not a Late-Medieval European Warhorse.

So I tend to think that the sculptor got it just that bit more right. Of course, I won't know for 100% certain until I finish the assembly and paint him up.

Hmm, might have to do that bowstring again though....😕....and that's not going to be fun seeing as the bow itself is cast in very thin resin and liable to be pretty brittle.

Wonder if it might be best to try bending a bit of brass rod into a composite bow shape?

The stirrups were a nightmare to attach as well because they're so thin and brittle. As for the arrows that come with the kit - I'll never get them off the casting blocks in one piece.

It's a pet peeve I have with resin kits - and white metal figure kits as well.

Items such as bows, arrows, sword blades, spears, and similar, should be supplied made from a strong but slightly flexible steel. I'd gladly pay a bit more for that.

Oh well, it is what it is.

Picked up this to turn into a  1/12 Star Wars dio, joining the world of figure painting is not something I have done so this should be interesting for me and just thinking about painting hair, skin and eyes is giving nightmares. I will also altering the gun, goggles, possibility the helmet and adding a belt and holster,with a bit of luck.

Me too! I might even subscribe, there's some sweet freebies if you sign up for enough issues. If they keep the price down- the next one's a fiver, right?- then it could be a real bargain...

After issue 4 it's a £32 a month subscription for 4 issues, 80 in total. I'm not up for commiting that sort of cash every month to one subject matter so I'm not subscribing but its got me going back into the GW shop!😵

I got all nostalgic and picked these up last weekend...

 

47RoninSets.jpg

 

Tamiya's 1/35 Samurai figures (a set of 4 and a set of 8 ) depicting some of the figures from the '47 Ronin' story.

As usual, I couldn't resist making a start, so primed the Oishi figure and painted the Magari Yari (Trident Spear) as an exercise to see whether I could paint the small kanji required for the scroll. Hopefully I can also paint the fabric print patterns, kanji and house symbols on the figures, which will be a laborious task but hopefully satisfying in the end.

I built and painted these figures many years ago (and rather poorly, if I recall) and thought it would be fun to 're-visit' them

I'll see what I can do for you, RPAC. I'm not famous for being good at taking progress pics, but they say that one can teach an old dog new tricks, so maybe I should try harder! 😉
