Troopship from China!

Looking further afield for heroes to lead my Three Kingdoms armies, these fine fellows have just arrived from Guandong province.


Lu Bu on his horse Red Hare. Lu Bu was said to be the finest warrior and Red Hare the finest horse under heaven...However Lu Bu was treacherous and murdered more than one adoptive father!


Cao Cao was low born but rose to great power during the dissolution of the Han Empire. Cao Cao was a man of great ambition. It was he who supposedly said " I would rather betray the world than let the world betray me".


Guan Yu, one of Liu Bei's sworn battle brothers and Five Tiger Generals. Guan Yu carries his Green Dragon Crescent Blade which he wielded with great strength and agility.



Last but by  no means least, comes Zhang Fei. Zhang Fei was Liu Bei's other sworn battle brother and another of the Five Tiger Generals.  Armed with Serpent Halberd and as quick to laugh as to fall into a battle frenzy Zhang Fei is a sort of Brian Blessed of the East.

Very happy with these figures. Near as I can tell they were produced by Flying General Workshop.

















And finally, if you have made it this far...


Till next time, thanks for stopping by!

    1. Merci Phil! I ordered them without having seen them, putting my faith in DPS' past work. The painter did an excellent job on very dynamic figures. I am very pleased with the results.

    1. Hello! I wrote to Dragon Painting Service, http://stores.ebay.com/Dragon-Painting-Services
      To ask if they could help me with this project and they were kind enough to provide these figures although they were not listed in their store. Hope this helps.
