Cancon 2013 DBA – Koguryo Koreans – 8

2012-12-10 01.46.09I did not get as much painting done over the last couple of days although I did manage some progress. I’ve finished the cataphracts (well, almost finished them). All that required to be one on them now is to add some grass to the bases and then varnish, a task I will undertake when I return to Singapore after Christmas.

I was looking at standards for the Koguryo and whilst I can see some nice dragon type ones from the War Memorial Museum in Seoul that may do the trick I opted for something quick, simple and easy. I’ll come back and redo the standard later if I have time (and inclination and yes, it means that it will probably remain the way it is now).

I opted for two basic colour schemes for the cataphracts after all was said and done.

2012-12-10 01.46.28I also managed to get the flesh wash and armour wash completed on the infantry as well as paint the horses on the Light Horse. The Light Horse was given a second coat of the basic white uniform colour.

Whilst I did not get the army finished before heading back to Oz, a good painting session on a Saturday will see the Koguryo finished. The first weekend that is likely to happen will be 12 January when I am back in Singapore – with just two weeks to go before Cancon 2013.

I still have the camps to make yet – that will be a task for January as well.

In the meantime, I am not sure whether or not I will do any work on the Hungarians between now and 12 January as I am in Jakarta and will be heading to Oz on Wednesday. The Hungarians are still in Singapore.

    I forgot to mention, there is a simple anachronism in the figures above as well 🙂

    The one second form left is wearing a Seiko?

      Actually, there are two anachronisms … both at the same location but both different although related.

    김치 !

    Although it seems pickled vegetables under similar names were known during the 3 Kingdoms (see Wikipedia). Obviously, without the red peppers and the name was not written in 조선글 😉

      Got it in one … I was feeling lazy. Maybe I’ll do a better standard later but at the moment it seems strangely appropriate!
