Not much to say about the Celestial Guard as it followed broadly the same palette as the Zhanshi with the exception of having a little more blue grey in the armour. The Celestial Guard is a fairly unremarkable light infantry compared with other faction starters as it didn’t introduce anything spectacular to the force such as TO Camo or infiltration. It is however a nice cheap option for a support troop and I occasionally deployed him as my Lieutenant when I wanted to play the Shang Ji more aggressively up front.
Similar to the Shang Ji I built the orange up from orange brown and scrofulous brown softening the transitions with a glaze of Vallejo Sun Yellow. The rest of the palette is a duplication of the other light infantry Zhanshi.
With the Celestial Guard added only one of the starter miniatures remains to be painted; the Domaru Butai and being white that’s a different challenge entirely.
