About the Project

This is my Samurai project I stated a few years ago and will be doing for a few more years to come. This is not only miniature painting but conversions, terrain, and rules. As well as some other things I am sure that I am interested as well as inspiration. I hope you will enjoy my journey into the world of Samurai Wargaming.

I muted down the the bright craft stick after I distressed the gate house by making a stain wash .
Trust me it was to bright for the table top but the camera made it look ok.
Next I will add some green to where the boards meet the earth.

Finally getting some paint on the wooden fort

Here are two photos of my wooden wall sections. Before and after distressing. I am liking the distressed look a lot. I may come in with some more scorched marks. Any thoughts?

I am trying to give it a chard wood look that was common in feudal Japan at the time. It acted as a fire retardant as well as a insect repellent.

Well not as many as I wanted about half of what I intended to do but that is my fault. I put on some old Samurai classics “HaraKiri” 1962 (not that crap remake) “Ran” and then “Seven Samurai” for inspiration but let’s just say I was watching movies instead of assembling models. I still got some work done though 🤪Well not as many as I wanted about half of what I intended to do but that is my fault.
