Ii Naomasa in 120mm - WIP +3

Ii is pretty much finished; although his sword still needs to be painted and attached. The horse and it's bells and whistles are next.
I left the sleeves plain - without decorative mon or other designs. Didn't want it to become too "busy" and detract from the overall look - which seems appropriate for the Age of War.
The brigandine work at the top of his suneate, as well at the neck and shoulders are nicely sculpted.
The slots in the back of the cuirass are for the sashimo holder. I may not add a sashimo as I don't think high ranking commanders wore them.

  2. Very imposing, love the vibrant colors. Can't even imagine how big this figure will be once mounted on the horse. I trust you have already found the ideal place in your home to exhibit this little master piece?
