Choson Irregular Commanders - WIP

These came with the Perry set with the Kwak Chae U figure earlier painted. Figured they might as well be painted up and be used as the command for the militia guys. There was a strong contingent of monks at many of battles, but I haven't painted any up yet. Anyway, here they are after receiving a brushing of Minwax Tudor Satin stain.
And prior to the staining; a nice basic colors block-paint job. The peasant and monk attire make for very quick and easy brushwork. In fact, the majority of Korean troops have a very limited color palette.


  1. Nice! The Minwax really adds a lot of depth, doesn't it?

  2. Great start Dean, that orange really sets the tone for the monk.

  3. Thanks, Gents!

    Yes, for plain colored clothing like these, staining/shading and highlighting are a must :)

    Best, Dean

  4. Very nice work. I like how the Monk's robe turned out especially.

  5. Great start Dean. l look forward to seeing these progress.

    Cheers, Ross
