I picked up a copy of Ronin – Skirmish Wargames in the Age of the Samurai  a while back and finally got around to reading it this last week. It looks like a pretty slick little game and so I’ve been pulling out all my samurai and Legend of the Five Rings trying to put together a couple of buntai for a game. And that got me painting a few Samurai and Ashigaru for giggles…

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version):

On the left is an unarmoured Samurai from Perry Miniatures. In the middle are two Samurai from AEG's old L5R Clan War range. On the right is an Ashigaru archer from Old Glory. The two on the left have been painted in Crab Clan colours and the two on the right have been painted in Lion clan colours - as I might like to make use of them in a Savage Worlds /Legend of the Five Rings game sometime.

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

Hopefully a Ronin game report!

And then the Generic Central/South Americans. 


  1. Great paintjob, my favourite is the "yellow samurai", stunning!

    1. Thanks Phil!

      He does kind of stand out - being as bright as he is - which may or may not be such a good thing on the battlefield!?
