Focusing? Keskittymistä?

I had this idea of trying to finish stuff already on the table before starting anything new.
Succes has been mixed - I have not started much new and I have concentrated on the peasant horde, Japanese pirates and the Danish command group. Other projects have gotten attention mainly when there has been extra color on my palette.

The wako - and some peasants - now block painted and with sand on wet acrylic paint. With dip, some glue on the base and varnish they are probably pretty much done. Disreputable bunch and with no armor except on the leader they'll probably die horrendously in the games of Ronin but they were fun to paint.

Peasants are a bit large batch - progress on them is depressingly slow. Still they are closing on getting their. I need to finish their faces (for some reason I've used two different shades - neither of which looks  really convincing) and facial hair, sand the bases  and see how they look after the dip. In the forefront  Danish command groups. With the new Swedish army lists for Scania these gentlemen will finally have an enemy they might want to meet on the field. So it is time to give finishing touch of powder to their whigs give them flags and make them ready for the battles of autumn.

Hoarding. Harakkaelämä jatkuu.

Polish peasants have been very slow to progress.
The different groups for Ronin have acquired some color but nothing has been finished - oh and I got myself some more minis from various makers.

The travelling hatamoto with his retinue is slowly progressing. And have run into a disreputable ronin. 
Still wondering about colourscheme for these servants. Leaning towards vibrant blues at this point - not really happy with the hues I've tried though.

The samurai from Steelfist are almost intimidating in their detail. And in size tower over their lesser compatriots.

The wako bunch 
Ten disreputable pirates, bandits or rebelling peasants. Fun to do - very slim in their proportions.
Maker Forlorn games.

 Peasants of 1st corps. A bit stocky but mixture of improvised weapons is nice - might serve as bandits or join Ikko  army as lowest of the bunch.

From Warriorminiatures bunch of ashigaru, 2 samurai and a seminaked guy who will probably serve as bandit or very disreputable ronin. A bit short in comparison to some others but might augment bushi buntai or form one of their own. Sculpting style is very different from Perrys or museum miniatures - in a way these guys resemble sculptures more than real people. It will be very intersting to see how they paint.

Now I just need to resist the urge to get some more wako - even if I have seen one with Portuguese morion.
