Over the last week I’ve been trying to organize some of my Samurai/L5R figures and get painting up some more to use with Ronin – Skirmish Wargames in the Age of the Samurai. I’ll probably be painting a lot of them over the next few months as I am fairly certain I’ll be running a Ronin campaign/tournament for the 10th Annual Wargaming Birthday Bash/Winter Wargaming Weekend in February.
First up, we have a bit of a mish-mash of stuff:
(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version):
Front Left to right: A female Lion clan Samurai that was made by AEG/WOTC for Clan War (some of the Clan War minis have been re-released by Valiant Minatures, but I’m not sure if this one is), A ronin from Reaper Miniatures, A monk from Perry Miniatures, an Ashigaru from Old Glory, and another Samurai (this time a Crane Clan archer) from AEG/WOTC.
I have to say Japanese corded armour is a pain in the ass to paint. But it does look cool when you’re done. Here’s a few closer-ups:
Crane Clan Archer
Back of the Crane Clan Archer
Lioness Sanurai and Ronin (which I've painted as a Crane Clan student of the Kakita Academy)
Monk and Ashigaru.
