55 days in peking - my project
« on: February 15, 2016, 10:06:31 PM »
hi guys.
I have started a new project. Yes it is Peking 1900 - I will try it. I used paper and corck for the Tartar Wall and the Legations, 1:72 plastic figures [since they cheap and a great variety, most very well sculpted-especially the Boxers] and the buildings are balsa wood [most converted from toys]
Hope you like it...

Nicely done. A great subject to do. :)

I see the HaT Russians, I can highly recommend the heavy weapons and artillery sets as well as the Zvesda WWI Russians. Are the Chinese the Orion ones? Great to see a period not normally wargamed. Been thinking of maybe getting the Orion set for RCW Back of Beyond games.

Yes, the Russians are HaT and the Chinese are Orion. They are of great quality, and they come in a wide range. Unfortunately most other figures are RedBox, and they are not as good as Orion and HaT. They are acceptable. You will see in my next posts ! Thanks again all of you ...

Awe-inspiring work in every way! It looks like it came straight out of the film.
