Thanks both.

Rob: I hadnít seen that before and itíll be very useful for colours. Obviously I havenít matched the clothes but I did alter the face/hair to approximate to the character.  :)

Good progress on the figures  :)

Might I suggest that the road has a slight curve to it, to add some interest?

Thanks folks  :D

Yes, you might  :D

Thanks for reminding me. I included curves in the 13th and 17thC England villages and meant to include one here. Must have become so wrapped up with the lovely resin buildings that I forgot.  :o :D

An update on the village layout. The resin has all arrived, meaning the layout can be checked in 3D to include the Ďalong the streetí sight lines (which demonstrate the importance of incorporating the slight bend).







Thereís also the watermill thatíll be on a separate tile to one side.

All of the buildings are by OSHIROmodelterrain and are cracking. Iím looking forward to assembling (the larger ones that need it) and painting them.  8)

I have the minis to make the following forces (they wonít be played as these straight units but I much prefer a systematic approach to miniature  accumulation):

7 ronin (with katana, 1 x yumi, 1 x nodachi)
12 villagers (with bamboo spear)
19 DEFENDERS

1 bandit leader (with katana)
1 bandit deputy (with naginata)
5 bandits (with katana)
5 bandits (with naginata)
6 bandits (with teppo)
12 bandits (with yari)
30 BANDITS

Iíve made some progress with the first batch of bandits. To arrive at a mix that looks sufficiently Ďbanditryí and without duplications, Iíve swapped around quite a few heads and weapons. Only the two bandit command will have full head helmets while the minis in straw cloaks will all be villagers.  Iím also repurposing some monks.

6 bandits with swords (including the leader):



6 bandits with spears:



When painted, 7 Samurai versus 12 bandits is probably enough to start testing the rules.
