40mm Japanese civilians


I've been away from painting the minis for the past several weeks while working with a new deadline at the newspaper, but I managed to finish a few these past few days.
I can't remember the name of the company, but the ferns (which were repainted) and the wind-bent tall grass (not repainted) came from a set of mainstream model railroading scenery (mainstream enough to be available at Hobby Lobby.) The bush of blue flowers is also from that same company.
The flowers the flower vendor is carrying are from hugeminis.com which recently shipped out the tufts as part of a kickstarter campaign.
It's getting to the point where I'm about to have more civilians than fighter; no problem with that -- I love a well-populated game!
I have several more figures on the table yet, mostly conversions of the same poses -- did you notice the flower vendor and the peasant walking in the wind are the same figure? They just have different heads and reposed arms (+ the flowers for the vendor.)

  2. 1. The flower seller's bouquets are amazing! Great find to complement a great paint job. And he looks so cheerful :D
    2. Great kimono patterns.
    3. There's a nice contrast in this group between the colorful lady and flower man, and the more humble peasants. But all are beautiful in their own way.

  3. As usual, beautiful work. I love that you're getting to the point of having more civilians than combatants - as it should be.
