Is there anyone in the forum that recognised these two figures and can give some info on where to get them...?
Thanks in anticipation.

The links appear to be dead, the coding is correct, though.

Well done for getting the pics to show..!!

Take this with a pinch of salt as my memory is not the best.

The wounded samurai 54mm figure is, I believe from the Arseniev studio, I'm not sure who painted the example shown though.

The Chinese piece was a large scale 'hand carved wooden statue - yes really..!!' ..bought in China and finished beautifully by a German painter and was entered in Euro this year..sorry I forget this chaps name...shame on me.. I was chatting with him on the Sunday at Euro..if you read this please accept my apologies.

All the best...Roy.

Hi Mario,

I found the product page here: http://www.soldiers-russia.com/new_soldiers/far_east/wound_samurai_pb716.htm
But wasn't able to see if the "raw" figure can be purchased. I would suggest contacting them directly.

HTH

Mario you may not need to go to China coz you may bump into similar figurines in one of the shops in the nearest Chinatown to you. The Chinese tend to want to have a little of what reminds them of their ancestral home so you may be able to bump into something similar in Chinatown. I believe such figurines come in porcelain and brass as well. This one looks like Kuan Yu, one of the main characters from the chinese classic, "Romance of the 3 Kingdoms". If it is then it is one of the more popular figurines around.

Happy hunting.

The Chinese Figure was painted by Michael Volquartz. The figure is a wooden carved figure and he bought them directly in China !!! I saw it in the real life and it was really stunning to see wich high details are possible in this material. Michael told me he has two other different figures of this artist.
