Edit: Moved the thread after realising i might have posted in the wrong section.

After years of just watching other peoples work and degrading my own
(we all start at this point) i finally desided to show some of my
miniatures. This is actually the first time ever posting something my
shaky hand can produce.

The warband is still WIP and are based
around the Nippon warband mrbrettonia started working on some time ago.
As i have a burning interest for everything Japanese i thought why not..

Anywho.. this is what i've got so far.

A Samurai, there will be 2 more of these.


One of the crazy Ninjas (Swashbucklers beware!)


Those who followed my Sumo thread know what this guy can do.


And who could resist this fine lady?

VERY NICE! The Lads & Lass look good. The Sumo Guy IS especially nicely done; EXCELLENT skin tones. The shadowing/highlighting on the Lady Warrior is beautiful [Japanese Ladies with swords put me in a Kill Bill state of mind Suspect ]. They ARE all cool pieces; the complete War Band SHOULD be a WONDER to behold. VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup

Great job! The sumo is my favorite. Nicely blended and shaded.

Thanks guys for the nice comments! I'll make sure to post pictures of the whole warband when it's done.

Svenn, the Samurai and Ninja are both from Perry Miniatures while the other two are from Hasslefree.

Hey Rabu!

Thanks for this breath of fresh air! Smile I think you are too hard on yourself... "shaky hand"... get outta here Smile I think you have a very clean and neat brushstroke. Somewhat very fitting for japanese miniatures.

Thanks for uploading and I am looking forward to seeing these guys completed! thumbsup

You are a natural, kid!

The sumo wrestler seemed like a hard model to pull the shadings off, as you are defining living tissue... you make it look easy! Very Happy
