I used to think I was developing some skill as a figure painter. Then I decided to do 28mm Samurai Cavalry. The universe punished my arrogance. The fact the sealant spray clouded only heightened the pain.
I am really enjoying these Perry castings, although the amount of detail requires a great deal more effort than most 28mm cavalry. I opted to do these guys in three phases: Horses, Riders, Sashimono. This allowed me to get the mix of colors and designs I wanted for this group. My only regret is that they came out much brighter than I wanted. I am going to use a black primer for the next set to get a more muted look.
