Well i want to model myself some warriors for my nippon warband and I was wondering If anyone has any Ideas on how to go about it?
I need Ideas for;
Ronin (think samurai with cloaks modelling wise)
ashigaru (lightly armoured infantry).
I also need a decent way of making a katana. Any suggestions and even a list of components that would construct something basic would be appreciated.
Here are some of my ideas;
Samurai; free company/fanatic legs. the torso of an emire knight (the big armoured thing) but filing off the shield arm. then using some arms (which I have no idea for yet) and a head (probaly mixture of marauder and other cool plastic heads)
Ninja: Probaly just going to take a dark elf assassin, but some greenstuff canisters representing all his powders ect. exchanging the sword for something less elfy. The model is all robed, so you cant tell its an elf =)
Ronin: Flaggalant legs + torsos with some of the arms, just with a weapon swap. diffrent heads (undecieded so far)
Ashigaru: the empire state handgunner, but with the top of their heads taken off and replaced with those awsome rice farmer hats.
