Progress Update On The Chinese Part 7
So after completing my blog yesterday I had 111 elements still to have their bases finished and then spray sealed. It took me all of yesterday and most of this morning to do the basing up. The figures are all mnixed up some are from the purchase, some are my own brand new additions. Plus I was lucky to pick up a large unpainted batch of Mongol-Chinese infantry and tons of mounted. I have not touched the mounted additions I planned to do but this virtually completes my Three Kingdom, Sui, Tang, Sung & Yuan infantry. I am just short of some decent handgunner elements as far as I can tell.
First up are the masses of Sung Crossbowmen, there is the option to take 48 elements of Irr Bw X or 24 elements of Irr Bw X/O or a mixture. I opten to make them all are single bases and will tape them together as need be. So I have 48 Irr Bw X and 24 Irr Bw O in various uniforms and mixed makes. When I have identified them I have put them in the comments below the lead pictures
The 1st group were all painted from the EBay purchase except for a single spearmen which I matched painted to complete the group.Crossbowmen. Despite being remastered I think the older Essex Tang TA codes range are still available to special order.

There were just rebased from the EBay purchase.
|8 x Irr Bw X/O Essex TA7 Tang Spearmen + TA8 Tang Crossbowmen|
