Three more experiments in miniature kimono patterning visual shorthand bring my Shonen Knife painted miniature total up to twelve.
I have been feeling my way around how I want to paint the figures for this project for the last month or so. To an extent I am still locking down the palette and the various visual themes running through the force (the white footwear for example).
Although the project was initially started as warband of ten to fifteen figures for Frostgrave, plans have expanded to potentially far beyond that. With that in mind, its important that the colour scheme isnt something that is going to drive me mental if I have to work on it for protracted periods, so I am trying to trim it down as much as possible.
And paint tiny abstract flowers. Go figure.
These three figures are from the old Aly Morrison sculpted GW “Oriental Heroes” range. The proportions and style have a certain flavour of caricature going on that makes them very appealing and pleasant to paint. They are almost like Asterix characters.
They are coming along nicely as a group I think. Archers will feature next I think, or possibly some terrain.
