Thank you my friends! ;-)
I just started the woundeds and rescuers and casualties!
Some of the same poses of previous sets... but this time made with the new articulate base bodies, instead than sculpted on the casualties base dollies... a quite different work, which perhaps takes a bit more and complicate work, but on the other hand it makes easier the sculpting in many aspects, especially those parts difficult to reach with the tools, and a to recreate a correct anatomy. :winky:

Indeed they do... :stressed:
After all it was supposed to part of their duties in case of need, and I guess they were well paid for that eventuality too, despite probably they hoped it wouldn't happend, and statistically was rarely really necessary... :winky:

And in fact here comes two more who given their lives for the Emperor... :affraid:

Just one more to sacrifice... and then another one saved and rescued that perhaps could eventually survive, despite being a figure he can't tell us what it was like! :read:

Many thanks again, Leo :-) :-)

they tried to do their work .. in the year 1644 but weren't succesful .. :oops:

Image

I even don't know if they died, while defending their emperor.. all i know is the emperor didn't survive the rebellion in this year (and this was also the end of the Ming Dynasty) :shock:

Thank to you! ;-)

Yes, they may have died while failing, but if I remember it right...
How they could ever achieved their main duty?
When even the Emperor made their job actually impossible... killing himself! :eh:
Well, at least we can suppose that perhaps at least some of them survived... here's one that didn't came out too badly :thumbup: , with a mate which got out a bit worst! :stressed:

I see plainly Photo Bucket,is up to its old tricks again causing loss of pictures!
However in spite of that fact,your finished figures look really cool.
Which is Splendid indeed! :thumbup: BB

Great work! Leonardo ..
How don't want to see this happen, they could be the last defense :(

Hi,DickerThomas
Actually in our hearts, 1662.6.1 was the end of Ming Dynasty, when Emperor Yongli(永历皇帝-朱由榔: Wanli's grandson) was murdered by Wu sangui (吴三桂 who let the Qing army cross Shanhai Pass) in kunming city(昆明) of Yunnan province(云南). Whole country fighted against Qing army the nomads manchu 1644-1662, under three Emperors and one king, after manchu came in ,the peasant rebels and warlords made "truce"with South Ming, combined against Qing Dynasty but it's too late .
Ended in 1683 Ad(台湾Taiwan island was surrender)....The fall of south Ming :( :( :( :(
