About the Project

Starting a Takeda Clan army for CLash of Katanas, with heavy use of Perry Miniatures Samurai Range, the only ones that aren't Perry are the A&W Mounted Samurai Archers. It's strange that the Perry Brothers don't have Mounted Samurai Archers...

I turned on the compressor this morning, but it didn’t stop filling the tank, which is not a good sign. It has a leak. So I’m going to need to replace it, but it’s the day after Christmas, and I’m rather broke.

Okay, so priming with spray cans is the worst, so I have to go back through them all with the airbrush. So annoying.

Okay, metal models, so add some warm, soapy, water to the sink, grab the small set of wire brushes as start scrubbing. I personally started with the horses. Then I glued the horses down to their bases, before moving onto the  mounted Samurai. Who were scrubbed clean, and just placed on the horses. Then everyone else, was scrubbed clean, with the Ashigaru, being given some Sashimono, their spears, and being plonked on bases. Not bad for a days work.
