Another Chinese building base

I should've posted this when it was finished but typically I forgot :-/

It's a smaller one than the last but the same principles apply. I've also got another three different types of Chinese rural buildings on the go for the catalogue and when they are moulded I'll no doubt make some more building bases.

And here are a couple of quick shots with both bases together and some Japanese infantry.

Wandering into China

Not a holiday post unfortunately but one regarding the Boxer Rebellion.

I've got a few Japanese infantry in the catalogue now and a new sculptor who is keen to carry on the range (watch this space) and my interest in the period is heightening, especially after the come down after Salute lol

Got some new buildings in the Chinese section and working on several more including more walls and I thought it might be good to put them on one of my building bases.

A basic layout was chosen basing it on the standard Chinese courtyard house but only having catalogue buildings in it, I think it worked quite well.

The buildings were given a spray base coat of a cream colour and then washed with a brown ink. The roofs and ruined sections of plaster were painting a light grey and then washed with a green/brown ink, drybrushed with a lighter grey than the base coat. Groundwork was added as normal wall filler first and then my gloop mix to the outside and painted with suitable ground colours.

Then the fun bit happened, the details and the growies (always my favorite part of a build). The main doors were painted red and everything was suitably weathered. A few trees in the courtyard, some tufts and a couple of flowers at the front and we're go to go :-)

SALUTE 2017 the finished pictures

Well, that was a busy day lol

But a good day! Always good to see many familiar faces and put names to new ones. Thank you all for coming over, having a chat, commenting on the game and products etc.

For those that couldn't make it to the show, below are a few pictures that I managed to snap before the hordes descended :-)

More for the SALUTE 2017 demo board

As time is ticking by I thought it would be a good idea to have a quick update on the Salute tenshu. It's progressing well and I don't envisage working the whole night before this time but we'll see lol

Here's a few photos to keep you going for now. I don't have much time to do a proper write up but I promise I will do when Salute is over 👍
