Sohei we go.


Here is the other half of my Sohei Teppo contingent.  I used the same mix of black. white, yellow and 'saffron' as the Naginata and other Teppo troops.  This brings my skirmish force up to 60 total miniatures, with room to add some leader figures and possibly some cavalry.  


Overall, I am quite happy with the Perry miniature sculpts, although these guys came with some issues.  It appears the molds were not completely aligned, so rather than mold lines I could trim away, I had a massive offset laterally across three figures.  These are somewhat hard to sand/fill, so I opted to just live with the irregularity. They still pass the 2 foot test, so I suppose they will do.

I also used some of my extra decals to liven up the existing units.  For example, I used some extras from the Perry Kiyomasa sheet to put some black bars on these sashimono.

  1. I would drop the Perrys an email informing them of the miscast figures. I bet they get replaced.

    Hard to believe this project has grown to 60 figures already. Good job!

    1. Perhaps with the next order. The project is currently at 60 Sohei. All told I am pushing 300+ Samurai and Chosen Koreans.

  2. The figures came out well. I don't usually fret much about casting errors, but I am with Jon about those three - more miscast than I'd find acceptable.

  3. I would also drop Perrier a quick email and photo ref the mis casts. I have done this in the past and received replacements. I keep hearing about problems with Perry figures. It's a shame as the sculpts are generally excellent.

    1. Thanks. It is the first real issue I have had. Their pieces usually take awhile to clean up with excess flash, but the detail is always good.
