Hinchliffe Models Taisho - Done

Here he is - with his strung bow, offset for riding on horseback.
He's quite a heavy beast - almost afraid his weight may break the glass shelf of the display cabinet.
Here he is with a 28mm T.A.G. Samurai in similar armor.
He was a nice change up from 28mm figures, but I'm ready to get back to them now - Bolt Action and Saga are on the menu for this Saturday at a game day.

  2. Nicely done Dean. These big figures do make for a change of pace, although they are a lot of work.

  5. Well done Dean, lovely finish!

    On occasion I think of doing the odd big figure to put in the gaming den but end up concentrating on the wee guys as there is always another battalion needing done.

  6. Looking stunning dean! Really well done!

    It is never easy to make the transition from painting skin on 28mm minis to painting it on such a large mini, and you have done a fabulous job!
