Today I completed 7 elements that will allow me to morph my II/38a Hsuing nu into either II/38b Southern Hsuing nu or II/38c Juan-Juan.
The idea is to combine my Hun army II/80d and with this army plus surplus elements which together can provide 2 armies to fight each other or timeline appropriate Chinese armies from Early Hu I/43b to the Juan-Juan from 400 B.C. to 555 A.D.
Stage 2 of my Hsuing nu morph got well underway today with 6 elements of Early Hu foot started.I'm using Scythians so dont want them to look as flamboyant, so using browns and greys with dull hughes of red and blue I plan to pretty them up by using coloured lining to their clothing and decor on their quivers and shields.
Trying to finish off my Italian Lombard army. Has been painting desk bound for far too long. Managed to do helmets and magic wash yesterday before launching off on a work trip, so should be dried off by the time I'm back, in time to finish fancy shields and spikey spearpoints. Very flexible Essex Dark Ages figures, with brass rod spear/lance replacements. Horses are beautifully moulded (plenty of them, with ? 9 x 3Kn). M
