RP No 116 Curt's Ronin No34


The price for entering Curt's Analogue (spelt right?) Hobbies Painting Challenge was to paint up a Ronin figure for Curt's 47 Ronin project. I bought 5 figures from ebay which are now sold by Foundry, but were originally Citadel Personality figures, the only figure I could identify was the figure second left in the pic above. Him being, Miyamota Musashi, who created a two sword Kenjutsu technique Ni-Ten Ichi Ryu. I've no idea who the other figures represent apart from the obvious Ninja.
I originally just painted up the Musashi, figure to send to Curt, but enjoyed the different paintjob so much, (I've never painted any Samurai figures before) so I painted the others up as well, then decided to offer Curt the choice of figures, he chose the chap in red above saying " I think I have to go with the fellow who's sporting a chap's head as a fashion accessory, (It's all the rage in Osaka, you know....)

These Ronin earned me 35 points in the Curt's Challenge, I'm currently in 8th place a mere 803 points behind the leader!!!

The other 3 figures are up for sale now, for £5 each so if your interested, just let me know!

There were originally 5 figures in the bag from ebay, but one of them mysteriously vanished just after I showed them to Fran, he denies all knowledge of the figures existence, and even after showing him the ebay photo of 5 figures, still says he didn't pinch it.....the git!

  1. Great figures, Ray! At first glance, I though you were plying the judge with extra figures.

  2. Nice work, Ray - wouldn't have thought your first Samurai figures either. Looking forward to seeing the "missing" figure show up on someone's blog, maybe. Best, Dean

  9. These are some great figures Ray and very well painted. A great price on them too as Foundry is quite expensive.

  10. Good looking figures Ray, no doubt someone will claim the other figure as fiendishly oriental and mysterious in the way he aquired it.

  20. Very nice Ray, I believe Curt must be building up quite a collection of Samurai for himself.
