I paint figures at night, but if I have a bit of spare time during the day, I'll use this time to prep figures or make scenery. The latest scenery items are for DBA.
First up, a Samurai castle:
This is a 1/300 plastic Fujimi model that works out at about 3 x 3 base widths. A perfect fort for the DBA Samurai to besiege and relieve. Yumisushi Nate sits alongside for scale.
Next up is a generic Middle Eastern built up area, exactly 3 x 3 base widths in size. The idea is that it can be used for Biblical games, Eastern Roman Empire or Crusades, so I haven't made any period specific additions. I need to add some windows to the rear of it, but I can't imagine it would be the airiest of homes. Probably why the Philistines are sunbathing on the battlements.
Lastly, a couple of camp elements for the two Samurai armies (which aren't actually painted yet). Above is the camp of Yumisushi Nate, where a lone Ashigaru leads forward a pack horse while a stealthy ninja lies in wait. Below, the camp of Tomuchisake Dan has no such fears, just a pleasant stroll under the cherry blossom trees.
Now that these are finished I really want to get the rest of my Samurai painted, so when I've finished Craig's figures, they will be the next job. Then Geoff's long awaited Huguenot cavalry. I can't say I don't have anything to do at least...
