Yamato Fortress: DBA Army Camp

Here it is with the two remaining Khurasan figures that were ordered for the Pre-Samurai (Yamato) DBA army. The white primered "wood" took a wash/stain of Vallejo inks very well; not requiring any further painting.
The shields are from the range by Khurasan and very nicely detailed.
The rear of the piece with what are stand-ins for psiloi. Yes, they have body armor and carry shields, but think of them as elite light infantry.
The sides of the battlement are filled earthenwork.
The completed army with mandatory army camp. Not bad considering they have a total footprint of a cigar box.

  9. Excellent work. I've been enjoying your work on Yamato Japan - there's sadly not enough interest in pre-Sengoku period miniatures.

    1. I agree - but thankfully there are a few ranges out there - this one from Khurasan, plus their Emishi range - as well as Bauda's Emishi range. Let the island conquering being :) Best, Dean
