I've had some Sengoku models from Perry lying around a few years, and I decided to paint some of them. These are some military guys. I don't plan to paint a 28mm samurai army or anything, but a few figures for skirmishing is nice.

Here's some of the work I've done on the Mansions of Madness 2E minis.

Nice work, both of you! Brain, I'd love to see you have some type of absolutely madcap game where all of your various painted armies and units square off.  :lol:

Is that Latrine on the left? :D



Looking awesome as usual.  :cool:

Latrine transcends mundane matters like time and space.  :cool:

What paints do you use?
Most of my paints are cheapo CraftSmart acrylics that I get at Michael's (craft store chain we have here in the US).  I like those because, besides the low price, they have a little nub in the cap that I can cram my tiniest detail brushes into, which means I don't need to put them onto a palette and waste any paint.

I have a few Citadel paints but I HATE the Citadel pots, so I try to avoid using them.

I also have a bunch of Vallejo Game Wash bottles, and I do really like those.

Some ninja. IIRC the earliest known illustration of a classic black-clad ninja is from the early 19th century, and I'm not sure what Sengoku sources actually say about ninja costumes. But regardless, not having these guys would feel wrong. Obviously this kind of outfit was only used for certain types of mission, more commonly ninja would be in disguise, which is great for a hobbyist since any model can be a ninja this way.

Some more guys. When I primed these some years ago I used the framework of the Ronin rules from Osprey, and made some starter warbands for the different factions. IIRC these guys are an Ikko-Ikki warband. No individual model is tied to any one faction though, historically an individual could drift between peasant/Ikko-Ikki/bandit/ashigaru as time and circumstances required.

Those are fun models! Definitely some character to them and a unique feel.

Yeah, the Perrys are great. I like metals like these for skirmish stuff, they are all individuals. And you don't need a lot of assembly.

Some warrior monks. The stock image of the medieval warrior monk that emerged in the 18th century is pretty much the guy on the left only with the addition of japanese clogs. Reality was a lot more varied, and I doubt they wore clogs in combat. So AFAICT these sculpts seem reasonably historical.
