Progress on my Chinese warlord army continues with two heavy weapons units; a machine gun and mortar.
Both units use the excellent Copplestone figures from their Back of Beyond range.
Of the two sets, I have to say the mortar team is my favorite, and that is all down to the third figure enjoying his noodles. It's such a quirky figure to include, but makes for a very fun vignette.
I've predominately used my earlier blue greys for the uniforms, but also decided to include some green greys for a more rag tag look. For these tones I used Vallejo German Fieldgrey WWII 830, Green Grey 886, and Green Grey 886/Green Grey 971 50:50 mix. The machine gun was painted Dark Sea Blue 898, then drybrushed with Gunmetal Grey 863 and Fieldblue 964. For the mortar I used Brown Violet 887, Russian Uniform WWII 924, then highlighted with Khaki Grey 880 and natural Steel 864.
