Finished: 15mm Ming Chinese Medium Cavalry

And they're done. These are the three bases of medium cavalry I need for my Ming allied contingent for ADLG and will be the first bases of three 4-base units for FoGR - I'll be painting up the other 3 bases for each unit at some point in the future.

That's enough introductory waffle though, on with the pics!

I might go back over the hats and boots with matt varnish (or maybe a mix of matt and satin) as they look a bit too shiny to me.

Apart from one bay, the horses are all duns. I decided to go with that horse colour as the Chinese horses would have been descended from Mongol stock.


  1. Very nice - those hats are something.

  2. I agree about the shine on the hats, they will look even better when you have matted them as planned!

  3. Those look wonderful.

  4. Great looking stuff. I plan on stealing your ideas when I expand my own collection to the Ming.

  5. @ Geordie - cheers! :)

    @ Dannoc - they are rather colourful, aren't they? :)

    @ Herkybird - the more I look at them the more I think they should be matt. Glad to see you agree :)

    @ Stu - thanks! :)

    @ Dartfrog - cheers! Feel free to pinch them - I look forward to seeing how you take them in 28mm :)

  6. I like these Ming chaps. Very colourful.
