Yeah, great work and an excellent idea for balancing a game, particularly if the 'mighty' warrior is warned by the local peasants in advance; there can be no one excuses!

Lovely stuff. What parts did you use for the conversion?

I like all your creatures, but the Mekurabe is exceptionally good.

Thanks guys  :)

The Mekurabe itself is actually unconverted, being a Zenit miniatures Kickstarter exclusive.  The shrine is a 1:150 papercraft temple from a Japanese model railway shop, skulls are GW (from their recent boxed set of 350 assorted skulls), and the flower bases are from the Busch HO scale wildflower set.

Chiming in to say this is an amazing thread. I'm starting a Sengoku Jidai skirmish project with a friend and seriously considering something like this for some solo games. Just fantastic minis

The floating skull and the written description are wonderful.

The woods and forests that surround Yokainoyama are mystical places, full of confusing sights and misleading signs.  A traveller walking through the light dappled groves would be wise not to trust the things they think they see, take advice with caution and plan their route carefully.  A playful, mischievous creature lives in the woods, on the outskirts of the village, spanning both the world of mankind and the world of the spirits, this creature is the Tanuki.  Perched atop his swollen testicles like a furry beanbag, the tanuki has the power to transform into any shape he wishes, from a giant spider, to a fearsome oni, a statue or a wise old man.  His favourite form though is that of a teapot.  Many a time he will swap places with a teapot within someone's home, placing himself in the perfect situation to eavesdrop on important discussions, making him an excellent spy.  But, since the often inebriated raccoon-like creature is fond of playing tricks, can you ever really trust the information that he gives you?










The miniature is based upon a plastic Malifaux Tanuki, with a few minor conversions- since the model lacked any form of genitalia, which is the source of the creature's power, I had to sculpt the scrotum entirely out of greenstuff.  I rolled a large ball of putty and depressed a groove along it, placed it on my base and then pressed the model into it, squashing the putty into a more relaxed form.  I then had to clean up the shape a bit and add some hair texture over the surface.  The sake cup in his hand was removed and replaced with a teapot from a 1:35 miniarts crockery set.  The daruma ema panel on the base was just cut from plasticard and a bit of twisted wire added, simple stuff.  I'm pretty pleased with the fella, and kinda want to make a few more, but standing upright so the all-important testes are more prominant.
