From Curt: 28mm Warrior Monk, 'Namon' (5 points)


Just a single 28mm entry today (It seems I'm going to nickel & dime my way to my 800 point target...). Another one for the samurai theme - this time a warrior monk armed with a naganata. This casting is from The Assault Group range of samurai (sculpted by Seth Nash). 



I had painted one of these guys several years ago to represent a character in a RoleMaster game set in medieval Japan. His name was Namon, and if I remember correctly he was a fairly righteous dude (and pretty kickass when he wanted to be). I couldn't find the original figure after our move so this one is in homage to Doug and that great game he ran.

Fairly straightforward paintjob. Again, I kept it to a minimalist colour palette which seems to suit the subject. 



I forgot how much I liked these sculpts - relatively chunky, but nice and clean with good animation. 



Namon the Warrior Monk will give me 5 points.

    1. One hand to hold the figure, one hand to hold the paintbrush - I won't ask what you're using to type. I'll just assume you're using your nose to hit the buttons on the keyboard.

  7. Thanks for the comments folks! Keeping pace with the entries is a fun challenge but I'm falling behind in my points goal so I gotta get some more stuff photographed, written up and posted!

    great work on Namon, and thanks for the kind words on the game. It was fun to run, and I will always cherish Tim's savant-like recall that Peaches N Herb sang "Reunited"

    I look forward to seeing the final display of Ronin. Being a lazy man,I will also take the time to extend a blanket kudos to all participants: as a non-painter, I am consistently impressed with the high quality of your work!
