Let's end off the month with another project update. This time it is a set of kneeling Ashigaru from Perry miniatures. As mentioned on Teppo Tuesday, I am almost out of Ashigaru figures, so I am opting to do a mixed unit of Spear, bows and handguns for a detachment of Yukinaga's 1st Division for my Imjin War project. I like the kneeling pose as they should work well with a group of Handgunners firing over their heads. The next phase will be to add a few more spearmen and an attachment of bowmen to defend the handgunners while they reload.
I also took some time to whittle away at my massive backlog of Samurai. I have a large collection of them in various states of completion and tend to work on them when the fancy catches me or I have a little color left over on the pallet. It is definitely helping me generate an eclectic bunch.
I am hoping to post a nice mixed bag of minis on the blog here in December as I try to reduce the number of neglected/unfinished models sitting around the painting desk.
