Accessories for Japanese villages/towns?
« on: June 08, 2014, 10:56:51 PM »
Now that our group's Japanese terrain is well underway, I'm looking for items to make it looked lived in.  I have some of the rural items from Fukei and am going to purchase some from Oshiro.  Does anyone have any ideas for the little things like Tatami mats, rice bales, furniture, prayer flags, and paper lanterns?

Would love to find a sword/weapon rack and a suit of armor too.  Does anyone make those?  Haven't been able to find anything like that yet.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance!

Museum Miniatures have a few bits like weapon racks.
More choices in 15mm than 28mm, and not all have pictures

I dont know if it has specific japanese items but the ranges are so vast that you may find many suitable items.

Their new Japanese handcarts look pretty good.

You could use Wargames Factory plastic samurai, drill out the neck and arms, snip off the legs. I'm planning a 28mm museum and the Asian wing will have some armor in it :)

Kensei had a few references produced for their miniature game:

Appreciate the responses.  Carlos, those lamps are fantastic.

I have quite a few wargames factory minis here, and I think the idea of using them to make an armor rack is excellent.  Going to give that a shot.

I really like the idea of a 28mm museum. Sounds really interesting.

I'm afraid to say that those lamps (even though they are very good) are Chinese  :)

cheers

Scroll through all four pages here - there's a bit of Asiatic stuff (though I suspect it is more Chinese than Japanese, too):
