Honda Tadakatsu WIP

Better pictures soon, I'm just haveing lighting problems, but you will have some idea of what to expect. I have decided that the kickstarter will now be January 30th but by then there should be several sets to back.

  1. Well done! Like the dynamic riding pose! From which book is that illustration?

  2. Thanks, the book is called 100 daimyo, I bought it on ebay, you can still find them, it's in japanese, but it comes with my highest recommendation because it has pictures like that of the 100 most notable Sengoku daimyo, in their most famous armour. A real inspiration

  5. Very cool, BTW I have an old plastic 1/35th model that appears to be the same guy - but the helmet anyway.

  6. Thanks again, no it's not that book, it has a picture of a daimyo with a horned helmet on the cover, I bought mine on ebay. They should still have some.
