Watchful I Studio Show Off What’s Next For The Chinese Warring States

March 11, 2015 by brennon

Watchful I Studios are closing in on their Kickstarter launch date and in the run up to it they’ve not only received a bunch of their masters for the Chinese Warring States Infantry but they’ve previewed what’s coming up next too…

Chinese Infantry (Sprues)

Chinese Infantry - Spears & Bows (Sprues)

These were straight out of the packet they received with a bit of black ink splashed onto them so you could see the details. These are looking very polished as first pieces from Watchful I and they don’t look like they require much clean-up at all. There’s also clean definition between the different parts on the miniature meaning that painting them should be a doddle.

Cavalry with Swords (WiP)

Cavalry (WiP)

As well as the Infantry Watchful I have been working on some additional components of the army that could come out through the process of the campaign and beyond. The first up are the Cavalry that you can see above which come with either pole-arms, swords or bows and riding some rather beefy looking horses. I wouldn’t want to get charged by them.

Support Troops (Concept)

Chinese Dragon

The future also brings some additions that are both real and mythological. In addition to some heavy shield wielding troops and more bowmen they have been thinking up ideas for a big Chinese Dragon. Suddenly this historical army could have a fantastical element and we might see them go down the route that Kensei has where they add in a few monsters and such, exploring the mythology of the Far East.

…I want them to work on some Not-Dynasty Warriors miniatures. What? Don’t judge me!

What do you think of their progress and plans for the future?
