42mm samurai: Ashigaru loading arquebus
The first of my black-armored figures. I'll do this ashigaru, an ashigaru bowman and one or two samurai with black armor; maybe I'll do some different color lacings. I'm not trying to paint figures to be all part of one army, but I am trying to paint them enough to split into two motley groups for skirmishing: Red armor vs. black armor.
I DO like this palette of black, green and light blue. It may be worth repeating for another ashigaru or two (after I order more :)
I still haven't decided on a mon, and now I'm thinking they really don't need one; I think the figures look just fine without.
These have really been a joy to paint up. I think I may treat myself to a few more for my birthday comin' up here in a couple days.
Here's a better pic to illustrate the size of these figures. The other figure is a Games Workshop Empire gunner. He stands 28mm from foot to eye (an industry standard):
