Ancient Chinese - Song Peasant Militia

A change of pace and scale from the recent spate of 15mm mini's and time to return to the Song Dynasty/Water Margin Projects.

Having painted several of the 12 Dozen Heroes they really needed to be backed by locals rallying to the cause, these are from Curtney's Miniatures they are some what bulkier in sculpt than others on the market but have a hugh range to pick from.
 
 
The source material of period would suggest most troops wore their own clothing so these will double as local militia or rebels depending on the scenario.

  1. Nice work on these; I have some of their Early-Samurai range - a bit bulky, but characterful nonetheless.

    1. Agreed Dean, they certainly struggle to mix with the likes of Perry's. but they have a character all of there own and certianly take paint well.
