The slow ox: 42mm samurai update

Still waiting for some 40mm bases to arrive from the Warstore; the blizzard, I'm sure, has delayed them. In the meantime, I've based and primed what I could. I can't wait to start paining these. I've chosen an ashigaru (charging with yari, wearing straw rain cape) and a peasant to paint first. I want to start easy before going on to the more complex samurai armor.

I'm also going to have a terrible busy next two weeks at work (newspaper never sleeps!), so I may not be as prodigious with these figures as I have been in the past. They WILL get painted; it'll just take some time. And maybe what I need right now is to take my time painting.

The ox is slow, but the earth is patient.
