I learnt a couple of things this morning:
1) The lighting is very good for taking pictures
2) It can still be very cold at first.
Dealing with the last point first I have now got two 2000kw fan heaters, which were soon going full blast and got the shed up to a bearable temperature fairly quickly.
This augurs well for Monday's game, given the weather forecast.
On the other issue, here are some shots of my Chinese project taken mostly without a flash:
|The might (?) of the Imperials deployed in the Temple complex|
|Tiger men to the fore!|
|Manchu lancers on the left wing|
|Imperial spearmen. NB I have replaced the flag poles and flags as provided with paper ones.|
|Manchu mounted archers on the right wing, next to the artillery|
|60th Rifles lead the column across the causeway over the rice fields|
|The Sikhs bring up the rear|
|The Sikhs take occupation of the temple|
|The 60th Rifles show Buddha who is in charge|
The figures are all Irregular miniatures. The temple buildings are self made from little ornaments picked up in various China-themed nick-nack shops, mostly in San Francisco.
