But I am trying to stick to this "Katana Rampant" theme. Thusly the only thing I am painting
[ among all the other stuff :-) ] are the Kingsford Japanese of the 16th C.. I really like the sculpting so it is easy to continue to concentrate upon.
Just finished the second ashigaru unit which now gives my 'Takeda Katsuyori Clan" 18 points which, if anyone else wants a game, will give me enough for a small engagement. Ultimately planning for 30 points for each of my two (eventual) clans.
|Teppo. These arquebusiers form the Takeda Katsuyoui skirmish unit. The archers behind are part of the new ashigaru mixed-weapon unit behind|
I have various multiple grouping and singles so any number of casualties can always be removed.
Purchased a 4Ground Japanese cottage MDF building and now half way to completing the structure. Interesting to do the jigsaw puzzle (grin!). Nicely done however, Being an old wargamer and remembering when such luxuries as such pre-cut, pre-painted buildings were not around, I still have the urge to make my own out of much cheaper materials. However does the cost outweigh the poorer quality self construction modelling and painting? In this case I think I shall continue to purchase these building if only for consistency of form if nothing else. (it's important to me)
