Whilst waiting for paint to dry on the latest compound for the Chinese village I got to think about what other periods it could be used for.
Having purchased a selection of buildings from Curtney's Miniatures I tempted myself with a few packs from their Ancient Chinese range - bad mistake......
A new Project is born.....
Why the Song Dynasty?
Until now I really knew little about Ancient Chinese history, the basic facts gives a rich background for any wargamer.
The Jurchen estabished a new dynasty known as the Chin or Jin. There were a number of wars between Song and Jin including a massive waterbourne assault by the Jurchen across the Yangtze.
Perfect to sneak in a little bit of 1970's nostalgia for the Water Margin.
So while I wait for paint to dry on the latest Chinese terrain piece a bunch of Song Infantry to hold back the invaders and keep the population in their place.
