It takes me weeks to paint the squad. Designing the decal and flag is also time consuming but finally it's worthy. The decal and flag are not 100% historical accuracy since i cannot find proper pattern from internet( we really need to build more musems)
1. the decal design for the dress. Improving the cloth effect,isn't it ?

2. the squad

3. Photo edit just for fun

Very well paint, good ideas (decals) as I saw at Kostis Ornerakis actual work too.

Hard to believe that the riders are in 1/72.
The only thing are the length of the green and yellow flag in my taste.
It is nice that it is underline with historical pic.
Nice modelling.
:yeah:

One thing I particularly like about all of your wonderful work, is that the bases on the horses are big, and they look like they are all the same size. Are they the size you need for wargaming, if so I hope you have set a trend for the future.

Thanks for your kind words. They are all in 1/72 scale so the height is around 25mm. Later I will put some picture for the size comparison.

wave 4 more riders
This rider is wearing a different armor. They are eunuches in the court. In Ming time eunuches were entitled to be civil or military officers. They belonged to another administration architecture and directly reported to the emperor himself. the figure is under testing.

and here is another type of rider of the royal progress: musicians(thanks to Lirui for modifying the prototype for me)
Image
Image

I am using the prototype to convert a warrior (not historical accuracy, just for fun) hunting the tiger and then tamed it
Image

Riding a tamed tiger, isn't it a herotic action?

It´s a pleasure to follow your project. I am impressed how wonderful are your created figures. Please continue and show us at least also the dioramas which you will produce with your figures.
