Dead Monks

Remnants from preparation for the Ronin Campaign - I'd meant to get a bunch of casualty figures done for the campaign - for players to leave strewn about the battlefield where their dead had fallen... I have a bunch from The Assault Group and Perry Miniatures... but all I got done was these two monks...

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version):

These are from  The Assault Group.

The one with the orange robe actually has the top of his head sliced cleanly off and for all the crap you can find on the internet I couldn't find a good reference picture of a freshly sliced open brain... Is it grey-ish (as brains are often presented)? Or would it be all red and bloody? (I am actually relieved I wasn't able to find a good reference picture...!). I went with red and bloody... 

He also had a longer sword which I clipped off to make it look like it'd broken (so it would fit on the base!) 

 Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

Later tonight I'll probably post the Hong Kong Police Force for  A Fistful of Kung Fu. Maybe tomorrow I'll post Jack (you can see him now over at the Analogue Hobbies Fortnightly Theme Bonus Round post - it's neat the bottom. While you're there check out some of the other entries - there's some really top notch stuff! I was particularly tickled by "the Dude" and Thrud - and, of course, Curt's own submissions are always nothing short of magnificent!
