About Me

My photo
I'm a bit of a born-again wargamer! I played many of the Games Workshop games when I was in my teens and early twenties, but left the hobby behind when I went to University. Over the last few years I have gradually got back into it and am literally having a ball! I'll play pretty much anything now, ranging from ancient historical to the far future! I think that I get more out of the painting side of things than actually playing, but that might just be because I get more opportunity. Hence the title...this blog is all about the colour of war!!

More IHMN figures and a ghost!

It's been a wee while since the last update and I actually had someone complain about that (you know who you are!), but I haven't been completely idle. I've finished the Dragon Lady figure from the Black Dragon Tong set, although I haven't come up with a name or backstory to fit into the Brotherhood of the LOST yet, so she's currently under the working title of The Mother. I also finished a Chinese ghost figure for the Mr. Vampire game that I am working out. That's the cast complete and I have most of the rules and stats done, so it's just down to terrain making now. I also attended the Claymore show in Edinburgh yesterday and picked up all the figures for the other half of the LOST crime syndicate. If you look back a few posts you should be able to get some idea of what that might be! :) I also got another carry case and sort of impulse bought a rules set and a starter box that I will be looking at soon! But that's enough for now. Here's the pictures!

The Mother - I went with the theme of red here to fit in with Lo Chan Fu himself and was a little inspired by the wedding dresses in Big Trouble In Little China. If you look closely, I even did green eyes! I think that's the first time I've ever painted coloured eyes and not just black dots. I think she's suitable as alternative boss figure, or perhaps his actual wife or something. She's pretty formidable looking, don't you think?


The Yeti - Thought I'd post an official portrait of this one, as we only saw him in some blurry shots in the last battle report!


The Ghost - The capricious spirit that will (hopefully) be entwined with the fates of the hapless Vampire Hunters!

  1. That is one of the finest Dragon Lady paintjobs I have yet seen. Well done Sir!
    When I finally get around to painting mine I am thinking a pale blue silk for the dress.

    1. Thank you! I am pretty pleased by how she turned out, but any painter of any standard is always helped out by a top notch sculpt, and this one is amazing. Easily the best figure in the set, as befits her status! And I do hope you'll post pictures of yours on your blog. Blue would probably have been my first choice, but I already did that on Xiufang - http://colourofwar.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/xiufang-finished.html?m=1

  3. All the figures are great, but I enjoy the nod to Big Trouble in Little China the most.

    1. It's its such a good film! If anyone ever made the Three Storms I'd be all over them!

  5. Some terrific shading here - are you using glazes?

    1. Thanks, FMB! The ghost was primed grey, washed with black ink and then highlighted up, but other than that, all of them are just Foundry style layers. No washes or glazes.
