Ashigaru Spear - Can you ever have too many?

One more 22 figure stand of Ashigaru spearmen rolled off the painting desk over the weekend.  The project now fields Ashigaru eight spear/sword units.  These Peter Pig spearmen are all sporting the red lacquered armor.  With this unit, the project total reaches 22 stands plus a handful of commanders.  While the mix of troop types might not yet be optimal, I should be able to field both sides for most of the Samurai Battles scenarios.  I could use at least one more archer unit and one more teppo to allow greater flexibility in OB preparations.  Perhaps one more mounted Samurai too?

  1. Great Ashigaru, Jonathan! Apparently you're about to recreate Nobinaga's Unification at a scale of 1:20. ;-)

    1. Hi Stefano, unfortunately, I only have a few bits and bobs left over until Renegade begins producing again. I am waiting for production to resume too.

  5. No, you really can't have too many ashigaru, particularly when they look as great as these.
