[ENG] Sohei band for Torii

My virst zenith miniatures were from the Sohei starter set for Torii. Awesome miniatures.

My main inspiration:

For the Ikame Bo, i've looked for tatoos made by buddist monks:
Image

Well ... as you can expect that was not easy to reproduce:

Image

As you can see, i've used round bases for two reasons:
- it's much more fitting for skirmish games
- players interrested by feodal japan in my area usually also play to Ronin from Osprey. So, for greater compatibility between games and miniatures series i've settled to round bases too.

Now, with Kensei, maybe i will reconsider this basing thing.

I love your band! And the reference img is astonish :D. I completely love that tatoo.

I am ashame now of my sohei band jaja.

About the base thing, it is perfect. We cannot change the square basinf for kensei (although you can play with it, markind the "corners" on the rounded one) but they dsfinitely looks really nice and more dynamic for a skirmish game :D

I'm not even going to try and replicate the tattoo yo painted, it's amazing!

I also like the colour combination you used for your monks

Thank you.

3 samuraïs:

As they are low levels samuraï joining forces with peasants and monks in a Ikko-ikki inspired movement I did not want fancy armor. I keep that for the filthy rich Otokodate. :D

My main inspiration was this picture:
