I thought it would be a good idea to help self motivate in order to get all those Buke miniatures I currently have sitting in my book case actually painted.
Now, I have made a start, with painting the Spy Lmt.Ed. miniature which was graciously given to me by my friend in Japan and is proudly sitting there alone in all his glory ;)
And a Daimyo mounted Buke character which is partly painted.

Pics to follow soon....I promise :)

Here is the first miniature I painted that would have to be one of the best looking miniatures for Japanese war games ever! Just love this sculpt. When I started, I was thinking which historical clan I would like to paint for the colour scheme for my army. As I live in Mito city in Japan, I thought it would be cool to do a Tokugawa clan, but the mon is just so had to paint and given the amount of banners I would have to do, I gave up on it for a Kensei clan. Perhaps, I will do that theme for a smaller force for Torri.

I don't know why the first image is so big and the other is small. It's a been a long time since posting pics to a forum lol

Sorry for the picture quality as I took them quickly using my smart phone with the mini in the display case. Better pics when I get around to it :)

Took some quick snaps of the Daimyo on horse in Takeda style paint scheme. Still lots to do with him yet, but enjoying the time spent so far.

Thanks Antonio for your kind words :) I do try, but every miniature presents a challenge and I am rarely happy with anything I paint lol very critical of my work. Especially photos which always look terrible lol

Started painting my KS exclusive Kensei this morning.

Will update with pictures this week. She is a lovely mini :)
