Samurai Interlude

I have had these 12 minis half painted for years, ever sins my friend Oscar lured me into a Samurai Skirmish project, Genpei War I belice it was called.

As a short painting interlude I decided to finsih them up. The minis are from The Assault Group, 4 Samurai Archers and 8 Followers with Naginatas, might even get me to try out the Osprey Skirmish Samurai rules "Ronin" even thought they are for a later era....
