Great Daimyō figure to command your previous Samurais and Ashigarus, Konrad. Looking only at the ponytail on his head and the moustache and beard on his face, he reminds me a bit of a Cossack leader. :mrgreen:

Nice figure, my friend. :thumbup:

:-D No,nothing to eat.
It's a gumbai.
A gumbai (Jap. gumbai uchiwa) is a lacquered wooden
fan in the shape of a small shield used in medieval Japan to visually
communicate orders to soldiers.

Unfortunately, he turns out very thick in this pewter figure.

I couldn't see that good what he had in his hands so I thought that it must be a slice of vlaai. Great painted as usual!

Another update for my samurai project.
STEEL FIST MINIATURES makes really extraordinary samurais.
The flaming arrow as a sashimono, the many different armors.
I have not seen figs like these from any other manufacturer.

Will be continued.....

Here are some examples from the manufacturer's site.
The figures were NOT!!! painted by me.

Beautiful painted figures, Konrad, and nice to see not only well made figures, but also in relaxed poses, without action, something quite unusual in soldiers/warriors of any era. :thumbup:

Two more Samurais for my project.
I hope I don't bore anyone with so many Samurais.

Will be continued...

Hello Konrad,
wonderful to admire your painting creations on these figures. In colours and delicatesse you beat the painted figures on the manufacturers website (but not in photography neatness ;-)
Knights of the Far East suit your colourful paintings very well.
Greetings

Another couple of wonderful samurais, Konrad. I like not only their great painting but also, once again, their relaxed, non-action poses. :love:

Don't worry about that. I can't get bored enjoying such splendid figures. :mrgreen:

I love samurais. Strangely, I've never painted many of them.
These are amazing Konrad. Keep them coming, please.

Shogun on TV in Germany 1982. Days looong gone. But I remember it.

Figures are incredible. As well as painted.
