From GregB: Ronin #12 (30 points)


Greg is first off the mark to send in shots of his Challenge Ronin.

From Greg:

My first submission. A 28mm mounted Samurai charging with Katana drawn. The figure is from Perry Miniatures.  I would love to claim this paint scheme is based on elaborate and careful research, but the the truth is that the more I read about Samurai and the warring states period of Japan, the less I understand. Napoleonics is paint-by-numbers compared to Samurai.  This paint job is the result of a google image search, pure guesswork and a sense that "Samurai were so cool they could wear whatever the f*ck they like, so whatever".





I stated I would give 20 points for the Challenge Ronin but since Greg's submitting a mounted figure (with some very nice groundwork I must say) I'll going to give him a few extra: 30 points.

Beautiful work Greg and thank you very much!

  1. Very nice indeed.

    By the way Curt, which shape should be the Ronin's base?

    Cheers
