Finished: 15mm Ming Chinese Spear & Dao Unit

These figures are proving very quick and easy to paint, which is good. the basing method I've switched to is also a lot quicker than the one I was using for the Koreans (and looks better too).

This is the first 6-base spear & dao unit for FoGR or three spear & dao units for ADLG. I've got another two units waiting in the wings to be painted.

As you can see I decided to go with red trim on the blue coats. The blue was a roughly 2:1 mix of Dark Blue Grey (VMC 904; not to be confused with Dark Bluegrey, VMC 867) and Flat Blue (VMC 962).


  1. They look splendid! All you have to do is win with them now!
    I do like the look of your bases too!

  2. What a terrific look. The bases really complement the nice look given to the figures themselves and shows a lot of love having been poured into completing these wonderful figures.

  3. @ Herkybird - what is this "win" of which you speak? ;)

    @ Jerry - thanks! The static grass is covering more of the base than I'd intended, but still looks good :)
