Company B WW2 Japanese Cyclists

These figures form part of a group of twenty odd WW2 Japanese figures that I have been busting a gut to get painted, in the limited time I have, for the end of the month. They will form part of a display game at the Vapnartak  show in York in early February. The game is to be staged by "The Beast", a long standing client of Over Open Sights. These are very much "rush jobs" and all of them were quite fiddly to paint. Some of the sculpting falls short of the mark in places. I complained to "The Beast" who merely observed that I had become too used to painting up Perry sculpts. An accurate observation. Apologies for the third photograph. One of the bulbs in my lamps decided to blow just before this photograph  was taken, hence the darker area on the right.

great work, unfortunately most beast metals require a lot of cleaning up try putting weapons into the dark age figures and you will blunt several drill bits doing so. That said they are nice figures to paint

Beautiful cyclists, great work!

Awesome painting again! Despite them seemingly having some flaws they seem to be nice figures though.

Spiffing painting, despite the difficulties you mention.

"The Beast" being unsympathetic to your predicament ... !? Next time you see 'em, give 'em a biff on the nose! ;o)

Well done.
