My answers to all of these questions are, "it depends!" For the Samurai Battles project, I have knocked out a little over 400 figures in about 1-1/2 years. From the initial surge in DEC2012, units for this project get into the painting queue on a somewhat regular basis. Perhaps, on average, yielding about one unit per month but in short bursts rather than a steady, routine delivery process.
With no new additions to the project since the three units added in FEB2014, I decided it was time to push another unit into the painting queue. This time, an eight figure unit of cavalry went onto the painting desk. Figures are Peter Pig and this appears to be the last full unit of horse remaining in The Lead Pile. On to the photos...
This week in the post I received two items. The first was a package from Tajima Miniatures. In the package were five boxes of their excellent long tufts. Customer service and delivery speed were outstanding. Ordered on 30MAY2014, I received delivery from the U.K. on 05JUN2014. Six days transit from U.K. to Washington State, USA. Unbelievable!

The figures have a certain old school/toy soldier charm about them but detail is either difficult for my old eyes to see or missing altogether. I look forward to giving these a test with the brush. Perhaps, I'll give them a go in the Old School/Toy Soldier style in which I think they deserve.
