Samurai Banners - WIP
Since the Perry order arrived as expected - about a week and a half from the UK to here in the Pacific NW - I was able to start on the banner men for the Samurai command stands. Four of the tall banners, or nobori, are from one pack and carried by ashigaru. The lone samurai is actually a Kuroda Nagamasa figure which a buddy gave me a long time ago. I clipped off the large helmet crest and also cut his right hand from where it was resting on his hip. His arm was then bent to hold a spare T.A.G. standard, or uma jirushi. His right hand was reformed a bit using Green Stuff.
