15mm Samurai Battles Project

After my last Commands & Colors: Samurai Battles game with Jake (SB Game), I realized that more Ashigaru spear stands were needed to fulfill the scenario requirements for even one faction.  For our game, surplus teppo were pressed into service as spear.  Hardly a satisfactory solution but worked in a pinch.  To remedy this situation, more Ashigaru spear were needed.

Joining the collection this week is one stand of Ashigaru sword comprising 19 Peter Pig figures.

Now, the collection musters out with two brigades with each brigade containing:
1 x Samurai cavalry
1 x Samurai foot
1 x Ashigaru bow
1 x Ashigaru arquebus
1 x Ashigaru spear
1 x Ashigaru sword

plus assorted command stands.
Collection to date

Since many of the scenarios require spearmen in greater numbers, more spear units must be added.  Luckily, a couple of packs remain unpainted.


  1. Great colors, impressive work!

    1. Thank you, Phil! This has been a fun little project in an era I knew nearly nothing about before I began.

  2. Excellent work, Jonathan. You have a gorgeous bunch!

    1. Thanks, again, Monty. I dove into Brookhurst Hobbies' Peter Pig holiday sale so expect to see some more Samurai Battles' figures in the future.
