A smattering of Ashigaru for a Friend

Finally, some time to post a blog update! I’ve had a rough week with the passing away of a loved one, some minor health issues and the like, but I did manage to finish the last of the ashigaru.

Six yari-armed ashigaru. All models by Perry Miniatures.

There’s not a single Perry model I could criticise negatively, and these are no different. Clear casts, little cleaning up to do, and concise detail. On these models I particularly like the variety of poses and armour versions. Always well-researched!

I’ve explained the paintjob to you readers in an earlier blog post already, so I hope you don’t mind if I don’t explain it all again. Highlighting the armour was time consuming, but otherwise it was a breeze getting these ready for action.

So there you go, that’s the ashigaru done. Next up for this commission is a pack of six katana-wielding samurai, one of which will be painted up as a leader for the warband. After that there might be more samurai, both foot and mounted, but these will have to wait until after Salute 2014. In the meantime, I’ll have to get my twelve sohei done, too!

Next up: more Red Devils. Keep your eyes peeled for them, gents and ladies!
