As you can probably tell from the headline, I've gotten the first buntai done, with these guys being painted.
The entire buntai of Takeda Shingen thus looks like this:
This means the first buntai is done and I can start work on the next - Uesugi Kenshin's men, sent out to raid the Takeda territories.
I've decided to change the list I was working with, however, and I'll be using the Ikko-ikki list instead of the samurai-focused Bushi list. This'll hopefully make for a more diverse series of battles. I've had to order some more models from the Perrys to do so, but I'll be able to start with some of the samurai - despite being a bunch of rowdy buddhist fanatics, there'll still be a couple of samurai to herd the rabble in the right direction.
And to keep this post from being entirely historical, I put the finishing touches on the first Keisotsu Butai for my JSA. He's a tester and there's plenty of faults or things that could be better, but he's done, so yay for that.
So yeah, getting closer with a fair few projects.
