Hi Cheng,

Your customs and photos are -- as ever -- absolutely brilliant!

Is the Torii gate from the recent zoo theme, or did you build it yourself?

Anyway, fantastic figures and an excellent setting for them.

Cheers,

AndrewL

Those are very nice customs, Cheng! :)

I think Playmobil's new zoo parts will come in handy for many members.  Here's hoping that they're the initial pieces for an upcoming Chinese and/or Japanese theme!

Apart from that they are all brilliant customs, I still fancy most your selfmade faces.

Inventions, customs, I see little difference. ;)
I reallly like seeing your Japanese soldiers,
And hope that one day I will have a Samurai army like yours! ;D
Untill then I will just admire your awsome customs! :)

A question,
Are you more into individualising all your people,
Or do you like clone armies too? ???

I generally lean twords clone armies. :P

I'm like you, WOT....
actually I prefer a cloned army too(as for all my ACW, knights, napoleonics, Romans, zulus, egyptians etc),
however sometimes its not possible (like for my East Indians, Red Indians, Vikings etc)

My East Asians are clones too but only for ashigarus, boxers, Qing, Terra cotta soldiers....but cant do that with samurais or japanese villagers

And sometimes its because its too difficult to clone, say, top knots...so they are just a little different(like we put different heads/hair on our clone armies) btw, I do have materials for more Ashigaru but too lazy to 'manufacture' more (my shelves are full too :P)

I may have discovered a way of making clone Samurai... ;D
I'll tell you how it works, (and show) when I start customising them.

I like a little variety, but not much.
I love seing them all in uniform,
And if nothing else their weapons MUST match if they are in the same group.

With my Samurai book (which I am using to base off my customs)
I am able to make all sorts of Japanese warriors... it has lots of pictures!

AHHH, I cant wait to start! :-\ ;D

Hi Cheng can you send clearer pictures!

These are fantastic!

I see you finally gave in and went with the "smiling eyes" (笑眼) we gui-zi adore so much...
