Thanks guys :)

Very nice!

I have been eyeing up your Shinsengumi and trying to justify them to myself since I saw the standard bearer- what a beaut!  Is there any sculpted detail That would stop them working as unarmoured samurai in the 1600s?

They can work very well as unarmored samurai in 1600s, the only think is a small fabric slip on the upper left sleeve.

The side bit files off easily and once they have a different colour scheme they fit rather nicely for sengoku.

cheers

Again, excellent work! I really like the Raiju! The bandit conversion is top-notch!

And the battle report is quite inspirational!

thank you :)
the kasedori bandit was my first model for this project, I'm hoping to do a few more similar ones so there's a better balance of country folklore and mythology


Email sent to you rokurota, I have to get some of your shinsengumi.  I'm wondering if I can convert the banner bearer into a shinto priest. hmm

Top notch. Enjoyed the game report, please post more of these.

The figures and terrain are just excellent. I recognise some of the figures but who makes the wolf and the guy in the straw cape and hat?

the Raiju is a very slightly converted Mierce Miniatures RĒOC, FRĒAWULF, I just added the whiskery bits from piano wire and that was about it.  The Mierce models are really nice to work with, incredible detail and poses and generally pretty well cast. They do tend to feel a bit light though due to the resin they're cast in.

The guy in the straw outfit (it's a kasedori) is a conversion of a Perry peasant from the SAM31 set- please excuse the quick photo, this shows how he started off (the rice thresher is included with the original figure)  I basically shaved off the jingasa hat leaving the face intact and sculpted the straw up over his head.  The shide streamers obscuring the face were added after painting from tiny bits of styrene sheet.

An excellent conversion, who would have thought that you could improve on a Perry sculpt.
Don't forget the game reports :)

Great conversion and painting, but this bit:

is just Kurējī.
