This afternoon I put a modest order in with Copplestone Castings for some "Back of Beyond" Chinese bandit figures. One pack of men with rifles, one pack of 10 bandits with rifles, these will be handy figures for "In Her Majesties Name" or just regular games.
I have painted these figures before but having just watched Jackie Chan's 1911 I am all stoked up for this period. Do not be put off by the appearance of Mr Chan in this film, he is actually a damn good straight actor and this is a fine film. I always thought the Dowager Empress died in 1908 but I could be wrong....
Maybe after my lottery win I will be able to order a substantial number of figures from a manufacturer! Sorry figure manufacturers until that win I wont be making anyone rich...although in a couple of weeks another order is planned.
