On the paint table this week.... more Samurai for Test of Honour. I'd been very wary of painting Samurai/Japanese figures but these have been nice to work on although I know my painting ability isn't up to adding the finnicky detail that some people can manage.
Nevertheless I'm quit pleased with these and even managed to assemble the figures without too much swearing. These are the ones that I tried using a different base coat technique (the impressive sounding Zenithal Priming). Did it make much difference...none at all as far as I can see although the lighter undercoat (black + white top spray = grey surprisingly!) did make it easier to pick out some of the fine detail so I may continue with this.
