I finished these a bit ago but just finished basing them. I found a box of washers in my toolbox that happen to be 20mm outside diameter so they were used on this project. I will use them for the whole lot of Samurai I am doing. On these I hi lighted them some after the dip to help them get "bright" again so to speak. After all have you ever seen a dirty Samurai? ;) The back banners are from the Wargames factory Ashigaru plastic boxed set. Again sorry for the crappy pics...

I finished these up several days ago along with some foot Samurai which I will post later. These are Old Glory from the Samurai line, which I find very good. These were finished with Warlord Games Strong tone dip brushed on as I usually do. I am debating doing some hi lighting on the brighter colors to make them stand out more. I did do this on the foot Samurai I will post later, so you will be able to see the difference.

I decided to skip all the WIP posts for obvious reasons and just post the final result prior to basing. These are OG Mounted Samurai Bowmen. I do like the OG figures in their Samurai range they appear to be better than a lot of the other ranges IMHO. These are painted up for the Sengaku period but not specific to any army yet, although I do have 2 armies in mind as I generally have to build both sides of the table forces wise so to speak. These were "dipped" using Warlord Games quick shade strong tone. Anyway here they are.

Okay so I finally got the guts up to try to paint my Samurai. I need some comments on what is done so far what looks good and doesn't. They are in a basic WIP right now so no where near finished. These are Old Glory figures, which I was pleasantly surprised to see cast very well. Anyway I an doing the Sengaku Period for both of the armies I will be painting. As I have few to no partners to play games with that have mini's I have to build and paint both sides as I am sure you have figured out from previous works I have posted here. That goes for everything I want to do with historicals in this area. Anyway here they are, I need constructive criticism good or bad, things you like and things I need to change.

I have had all these AB mini's in my mini storage for sometime and havent done anything with them since I got on my 28mm ancients kick. Anyway as usual AB's are the best, but you all know that, these are painted as the 4th Portuguese Cacadores. I really liked the the brown with the light blue contrast. I am playing around with my camera trying to learn it better and playing with exposure compensation etc as normally my pictures are less then good. I also re-did the AB British 44th Infantry in my last post so go back and look at the pictures.
