    Been stuck in doors the last few days due to the hurricane, and yesterday I used up the remainder of my ashigaru sprues and cast a bunch more bodies to use up all the bits!

    Made a bunch more spearmen, bowmen, and arquebusiers. Doing a quick check I currently have 11 blocks of infantry assembled and painted previously (11 blocks of 4 models each). Yesterday I assembled enough models to make another 17 blocks of infantry! :woot:

    Primed them all last night and this morning, and just started painting the first group of 10 Ishida Clan arquebusiers.

    Here is some of the clan heraldry that I am currently working with. These aren't 100% historically accurate but they are my best guess based on the research I have attempted.

    Western Army:

    Eastern Army:

    Eventually the goal is to use transfers for some of the more complicated ones like the Tokugawa clan.

    Painted up three more squares of Ukita ashigaru, including eight individuals with magnetized bases today!

    Also painted up a small pirate goblin that I have had in my "to do" pile for ages, but he doesn't get to be posted until ORKTOBER officially starts in my time zone! :mad::D:bored:

    Orctober is upon us (Orktober?) and it inspired me to paint up these two yesterday:

    Nice job, I dig the Gobbo with the hat and the musket, and the monkey looks funny as well!

    Did more work on my samurai army collection, starting with the Bandits and Brigands set from Warlord Games/Test of Honour!

    warden201811_bandits and brigands 1.jpg

    I didn't experiment with the color scheme this time, kept them in line with the box art. A bit more work to do on these guys before they are done.

    Also have another huge box of plastics to get through!

    And basecoated my two samurai commanders up, both metal models:
