Hey everyone, Here's a 20mm Qin Chinese sword fighter from Caesar miniatures, which I painted two years ago as a test miniature for a 20mm variant of Warhammer Ancient Battles - the project never really came to life, because then all my companions decided they didn't want to do it in 20mm anymore. I still have got a group of those ancient Chinese fighters, and this one is the best looking, I think (haha). Never got the NMM right, nor the real metallic (or what it is called), but I think he came out pretty decend with his head wound (which is a cover up of a missed seam line). Enjoy the pictures.
There are all sorts of pitfalls doing business in a foreign country, some can even be avoided with some intel. http://www.globalsources.com/NEWS/SIC-Index-archive.HTM But sometimes you just can't look hard enough http://www.globalsources.com/NEWS/SIC-the-problem-with-auditing-factories-in-china.HTM http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/02/business/global/superficial-visits-and-trickery-undermine-foreign-factory-inspections.html And when that country itself is in on it... http://www.cnn.com/2013/11/06/world/asia/china-labor-camp-halloween-sos/index.html
This work is going to be a diorama in support of human rights in China. In particular, it will protest their horrendous one-child policy. The scene will feature a mother, defending her three children from Chinese police. At this point, I'm still at the planning stage. I would love any advice or ideas you all might have to share! Mother will be 50260: Xiufang, Femme Fatale Children will be the girl, baby, and the boy on the far right from 03233: Townsfolk: Children. Chinese policeman #1 will be 50036: Saburo Aritomo, Meiji Japanese Officer, with the mustache removed, and the sword hand converted to an empty hand. Chinese policeman #2 will be a compilation of two different figures, and a head from a boneyard sprue set: Body = 50006: Col. Edward Titchener, British Officer Arms = 50106: British Bobby Head = P50008B: Heads (middle one) + +
Well, the topic line is the question. Will they be made in Texas ( or even USA) or will the work be going overseas?
