Nor I.  Never painted BoB before, but I've just placed an order for ******* from ******  (Keeping it secret.)

Just a thought for "Mike" and any others in a similar situation.  If any members have unpainted BoB figures that they think they'll never paint, now might be a good time to put them up for sale or swap.

Some cool stuff there for sure! Those standard bearer guys are killer as are the cigar smokin' characters. I'd think somthing that doesn't have to be so historically acurate is the thing...I'm thinkin' more like crazy Mongols for me ...with a couple cammels...and possibly an armored car? Is this possible? ...I know it is possible what I mean is will it work out for 'maximum round 10 bonus points'? There will be (...possibly...) 1 Crazy Mongol Leader, 7 Crazy Mongol Lackeys, no less than 2 Cammels and 1 Armored Roles or somthing like that...

Will it be allowed? Am I totally out to lunch on the whole concept?... :?:

yes, it will, 10 single Models + an armoured car = 20 bonus points

Couldn't wait so I went down to the local lead store and grabbed a couple packs of High Adventure figs by Copplestone. Chinese officers and Dare To Die...good for a start now I need a car/train...

What about color for the Chinese Army stuff...I seem to remember it being forest green with red details...am I even close? Anyone have any good reference stuff? Thanx.

Visited a model shop and two toy shops, and the only trains remotely close to the 28mm scale were really horrendous. I considered doing a 2mm scale and an HO scale entry, but the latter would include my precious model trains which I do NOT allow myself to mess up, the former would be too small for this (although they're grand for Land Ironclads :) )
So - I could buy something online, or create a monstrosity which would be nowhere close to looking like a train (no bonus points, therefore) but which would be fun to design and build.....  :)

I will have to think long and hard about this matter...



There, that's enough time thinking. And I've already found a few bits for the monstrosity :) AND I know what it should look like too.  :mrgreen:

Hmmm... luckily I have some unfinished Murch Brits somewhere, but I'll have to get me some more to meet the requirement of 10(!) minis...  :o

Hi all, some months ago someone had posted a link to RCW banners, and I just cannot find it anywhere. Could someone kindly point me in the right direction please?
Thanks.  :)
