Before getting onto my entry, I thought I'd share a picture of my workbench.
As you can see, there is something there that will be a WIP over the next few months. It's such a shame that I won't be able to share it with you. Honestly, I'd love to, but what with distances...oh, heck, who am I kidding? It's all for me, me, ME!!
But enough of that. You want pics of painted figures, for some bizarre reason.
So, here you go - my fifth entry for this year's Challenge.
As mentioned in my previous submission, to use my Choson Korean army in FoG:R for the 1592-98 Samurai invasion period, I have to take some Warrior Monks and Righteous Army. The list allows for 12 bases of warrior monks who can be taken as Superior medium foot (Bow*/Impact Foot/Sword). I've actually done 16 bases, so four of them can be used to bulk out my Righteous Army when I get to them (I can take 40 bases total of those, and they can be better overall quality than some of the "regular" Korean troops. Except in melee.).
The figures are Old Glory 15s. I used the Korean Guerrilla packs, but snipped off the topknots and smoothed the heads. I tried to get the impression of dark hair shaved, but the dark-blue-grey under a flesh wash hasn't come out quite as well as I'd hoped it would.
I went for a mix of oranges and dark-reds for their clothing, with some blue-grey mixed in as those seem to be the main colours worn by Korean monks. I have seen some in black or white, usually with either orange or red.
I also did a command stand for the Warrior Monks.
As with the Righteous Army command stand, the flag was knocked up in Paint after finding something suitable on Google. The lilac colour for the horse tack was inspired by a certain 1970s series. However, I hope this horse doesn't turn into a dragon - there isn't enough room in my flat!
And a pic of the monks with their commander:
So, totalling up: 1 mounted and 51 foot should give me 106 points, possibly with an extra point for the flag if Curt is feeling generous.
From Curt:Wonderful work Tamsin. I don't know what it is but that burnt orange and brown you've chosen (excuse the lame pun) is perfect for these - they just cry out 'Korean' for some reason.
I also like the shot of your hobby space. It looks very similar to my own, except mine, sadly, lacks the Talisker Storm single malt for cleaning my brushes. :0)
