John Jenkins 28mm Warring States Chinese

OK - I just recently discovered the figures available from John Jenkins Designs and I'm really impressed! The new 28mm Warring States line of figures is an era that I've recently been getting interested in - just to paint up - and this set will seal the deal I think. To the left are the infantry models - and I'd really just like to grab a few stands to paint up and display.

From the webpage about the era:

This range of miniatures will enable the wargamer to collect figures for the period in ancient Chinese history known as the Warring States. This period started around 475 BC and continued until the unification of the whole of China by the state of Qin in 221 BC. Seven major states rose to prominence during the climactic second half of this period. These 7 Warring States were the Qi, Chu, Yan, Hann, Zhao, Wei, and the Qin.

It was the Qin leader, Qin Shihuang, who finally conquered all other states, united China and became known as The First Emperor. It is his tomb which contains one of the wonders of the ancient world, The Terra-cotta Warriors, at Xian, and it was during his reign that another wonder 'The Great Wall of China' was completed. This was also the period of the legendary military strategist Sun Tzu who wrote 'The Art Of War', which is recognised today as the most influential and oldest known military strategy guide.
