When I first saw Christopher's fine work, I was immediately struck by the effect of the russet lacquered armor and brownish theme. I loved it! Since my Samurai project fields Ashigaru foot stands in a brigade consisting of one Teppo, one bow, and two spear, a brigade in russet lacquer would make a handsome addition.With the first unit in the Russet Brigade mustered out, I stick to the Samurai project but switch from painting another of the Russet Brigade to a unit of Ikko Ikki. Those peasant farmers should be ready before Christmas arrives.
Christopher, thank you for your inspiring brushwork and eye for color!
