CHINESE WARLORD plus last copies of Setting the Scene.


I have been holding back with my regular posts on this blog due to the selling of my book 'Setting the Scene'. As I now only have 8 copies of the book left, I think it is time to get back to normal posting.

I did an exchange with a friend of mine, I had to paint up a couple of hundred Back of Beyond figures for him in exchange for a rather large collection of 20mm WW2 figures (mostly AB), vehicles and buildings. There will be a couple of posts of these coming up in the future.

This post is the last of the Back of Beyond figures that I painted for Steve Lygo in January and they are a Chinese Warlord and his followers. 28mm Copplestone Castings.
























As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, there are only 8 copies of my book 'Setting the Scene' left and it is a first come first served. If you want to buy the book, go to the top right sidebar and click on Setting the Scene.

  I have put a link below of another fantastic review of the book from a buyer, thanks Jason and all the other buyers that have left wonderful reviews and feedback of the book. I have also stuck the youtube link below again.

  2. Congratulations on the book selling that well. But honestly I‘m not really surprised given the quality of your work.

    On to the miniatures:
    Wow, those Chinese, White Russians and assorted villains look absolutely gorgeous. I‘m as always amazed by the speed and quality you produce such wonderful stuff.
    Now, I really hope that WW2 collection is truly gigantic in order to make up for such a brilliant army.

    Nick, the WW2 collection is so big, I don't really know where to start with it. I will be showing just a tiny amount of it in my next post.
    Cheers,
    Pat.

  7. Wow Pat, fantastic Chinese n pals!

    Do you use an slr camera or are you managing to get such high quality pics with a high end phone camera?

  8. Thanks again chaps.
    Dai, I am glad you like the pics but the camera is a very old point and click Nikon Coolpix P4. I need to catch up with technology and get myself one of the new phones, the quality of pictures is outstanding.
    I think what might help with my pictures is the lighting that I use. I have 6 x 5ft length daylight fluorescent tubes above my table.
    Cheers,
    Pat.

  10. Wonderful collection Pat. Your buddy will be duly impressed & quite happy I am sure. The book arrived, I've skimmed through it, however having real snow to deal with has left it aside for the moment.
