Japanese scout surveying the land

An interesting thing about this scout is his grass/reed camouflage jacket.These were often used as a "raincoat" by Japanese fishermen and farmers,but was taken and used by the military for it's camouflage potential.

  1. Beautiful work, as stated elsewhere. I love the feel the colourful bases convey. And the paint-job is ace on all of them (You've split them up, but I would like to praise all of them with this!)

  3. Hi Chris,

    I really love the way you have painted the Japanese, very well done to you.

    I must look at TAG at some point for some additional miniatures.

    Please keep them coming.

  4. Hi Helen,

    Thank you for the support and it's really all your fault!;-)
    Super advice on the colors to use in your blog as it was very helpful.
    TAG mini's are not Perry's or anything,but they are nice although the facial sculpts are a bit weak and will require the modeler/painter to add some on his own to make it work.The weapons however where quite nicely done with the rest somewhere in between.All in all they are decent mini's and worth painting.
    Company B at it's armor looks to be very nice and I plan on getting some of their products.
    This was a sample pack I did and so I'm not sure when I will be able to do more Japanese as I'm getting a new computer and then buying a batch of mini's might be a bit much at the moment.

    Cheers

  5. Thanks Chris for your kind words.

    The painting advice is quite portable as now I'm using new colours to futher expand the horizons of painting Japanese.

    I certainly will be using your craft to futher my painting skills from what I've seen so far.

    Please look at purchasing the book I mentioned receiving on the LAF. It's worth every cent.

    I'm such a fuss pot that if it doesn't look right I immediately scrub it back and start again.

    Company B vehicles are very nice. Some work is required on some of the vehicles, but overall they are good.

    All the best,

    Helen

  6. I did notice the book and saw it while doing my research and it looks quite nice and I probably will get it at some point in time.
    Yes,I well understand the need to be picky and will redo things if I need to.
    Looking forward to seeing more of your Japanese so I can steal...err borrow your ideas.:-)

    Cheers
