    Very nice minis. Like how you developed your own colour scheme and patterns (especially on JSA as I'm a faction fanboy). Keep it up!

    P.S. Please honour your minis by painting the bases before you photograph them :-)

    First of all thanks.
    You are right I am not completely new to painting.
    I painted some ogors for warhammer fantasy when I was fourteen. Thats sixteen years ago. And believe me the ogors looked hideous. They might still be there somewhere hidden away in my parents basement .

    In the meantime I mostly painted on canvas or did pottery and such artsy stuff. So I have a feeling for colourtheory.
    But miniature painting with all its nuances is something different than painting on canvas. The details are small and sometimes hard to reach.

    Yeah I can't seem to get the dilution right. Either It's not thin enough or its too thin. But I guess all it needs is practice and time.

    Actually you where a big inspiration for me as I happened to stumble onto your blog. Your painting is incredible! So thank you very much.
    As I have a little son (1.5years) and hobby time is sparse i tend to concentrate on the painting part of the hobby.
    But I have the plan to finish the bases with dark colors and snow for JSA and Yu Ying. Blue greens jungle for shasvastii.
    Maybe I get to it when I am done with the wildfire 012.
    I might revisit some JSA minis too and add a few freehands (tanko helmets come to mind) as I am now a lot more confident in my ability to actually try freehands. As I was too afraid to butcher my paintjob. And there are a few additions waiting for paint. (my second ryuken that I build from a kaikozu, aragoto. Mushashi and an SMG)
    I will post updates when the bases are eventually done.

    Karakuri special Project, the models are dated, but they grew on me. The weapons are horribly out of scale and assebly is a pain in the ass, but they look quite good painted.
    i like the creepy spindly dolls.

    Ryuken 9, as i wanted a second one that is distinguishable from Kusanagi and sometimes you just want two of these guys on the field.

    Ninjas, The infamous Rooftopninja, badass pose, rad sculpt, looks a little dumb on the battlefield with his tactical roof. But i like him a lot anyways!
    Kunai solutions Ninja as JSAs MSR Ninja. These Guys where a joy to paint and mark in foreseeable time the end of my Paintig journey with the Japanese since i now own and painted every miniature of the range. Exeption are the REMs which will be used for JSA, Yu Jing eventually Ikari and other NA2s too.
    can´t wait to see the army in all it´s glory on the battlefield!

    I think they will look spectacular when the family photo comes together. Glad to hear that you are happy with your work and that your Asian forces grow in leaps and bounds.

    Kunai Ninja in Merc (Druze) colours. Posted before in the October Painting Thread thought it might belong in my Thread too.

    Al Fasid with HRL, such a badass Miniature. Was a Joy to paint and was quickly done. Now i need to get my hands on his friend with the HMG.

    Brawlers, so much filigrane details. Took me a while to finish them and i struggled a bit with motivation since i barely made progress. But the result was worth it.

    Was finally able to get a Airbrush and will soon begin to put some work on my waiting Yu jing troopers.
