Samurai again.

I am spending a lot of time painting up my Napoleonic troops, but as a break, I've been dipping my toe into Samurai waters.

These have been posted before, with one addition. The Ko-Uma-Jirushi carrier. My Japanese doesn't stretch much beyond Watashi wa hon o yomimasu and once we leave the realm of Romaji and head into Kanji, I'm even more adrift, so I am hopeful about the writing on the banner, rather than confident. I had to try it though, a geometric symbol felt like a cop-out.

 The chap behind the Ashigaru on the left is my fictional Samurai's Tsukai-ban, the Ashigaru are the Takeda Samurai's personal attendants.

Samurai are finished

Just a few shots of the finished samurai:

and a quick, rough, blurry shot of some vikings that I've finished and based. Better shots of those to come.
