Ashigaru Arquebusier 90mm Finished!

AshigaruMy latest figure by Pegaso models and sculpted by Victor Konnov, is a 90mm ashigaru Japanese  foot soldier from the Azuchi-Momoyama period (1568-1600) these guys were lower ranking Samaria.

The figure was painted entirely in acrylics, using a combination of Vallejo, citadel & Andrea throughout. The banner was created using a symbol of the clans mon downloaded from the internet and re-sized to fit. I then cut it out and temporarily glued it on with rubber cement to a white field and airbrushed the red portion. It was then touched it up with brushes and weathered. The groundwork is a combination of a+b putty, dried flowers from the craft store, and grass made from jute twine. The figure was a lot of work, but well worth it!
