my first try at Samurai

Here are a few pics of my first Sengoku period Samurai. 16 ashigaru with nagae-yari (long spear) made by Perry miniatures

My idea is to use a variant of the lord of the rings and the war of the rings rules, so i have based them on washers to use in skirmishing as well as large battles.

The ashigaru above represent part of the Nagashino castle garrison in 1575, which came under Okudaira Sadamasa. I intend to paint some Teppo, archers and sadamasa along with his retainers as well as the single cannon they owned.
