From ClintB: 10mm Samurai Mounted Archers (24 points)


From Clint:
12 mounted Samurai all armed with Bows. Continuing with my 10mm Samurai armies these figures will add to my Red army. While normally I paint the Samurai in different colours of armour I have decided for these few stands to keep them all uniform. There have been a few Japanese Generals such as Yamagata Masakage or Ii Naomasawho were known for their units in Red armour so I was open to the idea of uniformity in Samurai armours. I have also given them red harnesses and trappings to reinforce this point.

They are my usual 10mm figures of choice, Pendraken Miniatures. And have fitted 3 cavalry to a 40x30mm base. Which corresponds to the 40mm frontage I have on all the others bases. These are my first cavalry for the newly started Red army so I clearly need more so I shall start some before the end of the painting challenge."

This is a wonderful unit Clint. Lovely castings and I really like the uniform red armour and accents on these fellows - very Kurosawaesque.

This group of Japanese mounted archers will give Clint 24 points. Well done!

  5. Lovely work and I like that red. It's such a difficult colour to work with but looks stunning when it is done.

  6. These are superb Clint. I'm thinking of doing some more 10mm and have been considering whether or not to paint the grass. You've just about convinced me with yours.
