I have presented the figures firstly in a diorama picture.
In more detail, first are a couple of North star figure range monk shooters.
After this we have a mix with a couple of Perry figures that have converted
heads - these represent the Ikko Iki - a Buddist influenced peasant league.
The kanji represent a Buddist slogan which I have copied from some screenprints used as illustrations in the Osprey range. I chose a slogan with a smaller number of kanji! I think the other two figures with fur cloaks are North star figures and in one I filed the hair off to get a more monk look.
I would especially recommend the Stephan Turnball "Samurai Warfare" book which I got cheaply off Amazon as it has quite a bit of detail on the Ikko Ikki and a lot of the troops were pretty well armoured.
Finally I have a "ronin" type figure with a couple of disorder markers -
Overall 7 foot figures and two dead disorder markers.
Very tidy bunch, Jez! I cannot score for the diorama shots, but from the parcels to the structure and deck, that is some scrumptious terrain for feudal Japan! The monks are well done as the glyphs onthe banners. Although he is taking a nap, The fellow in the pattern red pants looks very nice too. I appreciate the disorder markers immensely as they are more elegant than simple tokens. Usually prone figures are worth half of the value of the more stoic fellows, but I'm going to count this as nine for the pattern trousers and the extra prep done to fit the others in as monks. The conversions are very hard to spot, so grand job at that! I have also piped you for the caligraphy which is also nicely done!
