Samurai Command Stands with Nobori!

Here are the command stands for a Late-Samurai army - they are suitable for Sengoku and Imjin War. The mounted guys were painted some time ago. All are Perry figures except for the Army General who is a Dixon figure. Probably the only time anyone will see the two mixed together. They are from left to right: 1) a Hojo retainer, 2) Kuroda Nagamasa - the Army General, 3) an Ii Clan Red Devil commander - Kimita Morikatsu, and 4) Sakai Tadatsugu.
Historically, these clans never served together - although some may have been present at particular battles, notably Sekigahara and the Siege of Osaka. Nevertheless, they will serve in the same army for our purposes.
Once again, liberal amounts of the fine products from Army Painter have been used to liven up the ground work.
The only other figure that needs to be completed for this project is another Korean commander. The commoner who became a general by his battlefield merit, Kwak Jae U. He'll be added next to the Kwon Yul figure for the Choson Korean Army General command stand.
