Hoorah ! casting of figures completed ....

 A few casting sessions over the weekend and finally I have completed casting all the figures for the 40mm Samurai armies.  This weekend saw completion of casting the mounted samurai and the samurai squads.

Each side will have : 1 command groups with camp curtain, 3 mounted command stands, 1 unit of mounted samurai, 1 elite retainer samurai squad, 3 samurai squads armed with short spears, 3 ashigaru squads armed with long spears, 4  ashigaru squads armed with muskets.

Number of figures for each side is approx 150 figures; A total of 300, most of which are my my own home-cast figures, with Steve Barber figures used for the command stands.  All together this represents approximately 12kg of metal.

Lots of assembly to do - mostly the samurai squads.... need to work out a painting plan ....

Jinmaku - camp curtain...

I got a couple of 3D printed camp curtains one for each army's command group. I removed the front part to suit the 40mm figures, the commander gets a fold-up camp seat as well 😎
