This weekend I finished up some trial figures for the second division for my Samurai. Same mon, just different colours.
I picked a basic 100 pt. buntai for Ronin; two ashigaru with yari, one each with teppo and yumi and a katana wielding samurai to lead them. I was inspired by the Yorkshire tea 'special' box for the colours:
This time I opted for red lacquered armour and weapons with yellow clothes and sashimono. The samurai of course got more personal latitude in his clothing.

So I waited until Monday and with a stiff brush I was able to remove the excess flock and I could add the flowers and tufts.
I like the combination, I'm pondering how to rework the yellow and red into the Lord of Tea's hatamoto (household troops).
