While I don't really know if doing these 12 figures is worth doing for only the 1 point value for my Lion Rampant games, it was interesting to do nonetheless. I used one pack each of the Perry peasants advancing and Ikko Ikki (the poses with some armour) .
Most of the spears and weapons supplied I wasn't thrilled about so I replaced some with a sturdy length of steel rod, angled the end to a point and painted as green bamboo. Yes, fresh bamboo would not be a good choice but I take it as an expediency for the poor people of the village and more interesting to paint than plain wood.
The bases are, again, random shaped to prevent the 'ranked' deployment unlikely for these people.
