This week I turned my eye on my samurai miniatures for Legends of the Rising Sun. I have a bunch of Perry Miniatures that have been sitting in my painting area for a while. Since I didn't have much time for painting this week, I thought these would paint up quickly.
Legends of the Rising Sun is a game no one in my local group appears to have much interest in. Maybe if I keep painting this stuff, it might catch on. I'd like to see how the game works on the table.
Here are unarmored samurai that I hope to use as ronin or bosses for a yakuza force. I'll probably add in some other models that are less "awesome" than these guys, just regular bad guys with hand weapons. For now, here are the Six Samurai (that's all you get in a box; the Perry Bros obviously didn't see the movie).
I also took three different sets of pictures and none of them really did any justice to the paint job. The painting was much better than how they appear in these photos. I guess too close up things don't look very smooth.
Next are my Ashigaru spearmen. After that, I'll have to think about what's next.
