Tengu teaser

hi all

Just a quick post today, more of a teaser than anything else. Over the next few posts I'll be showing you the figures that I've painted up for my Silvermoon Trade Syndicate and they are bad ass Bushido miniatures, seriously the faction is gorgeous and will be the faction I take to "Daimyo of the South", the next tournament for Bushido that I can attend being held in Portsmouth. 

However for xmas I got models to make up two new factions for Bushido so although I've been concentrating on my STS I just put this bad boy together for the other faction - The Tengu Descension and I simply cannot wait to show him to you even though I've literally only primed him, something I never ever do (shows you how excited I am by ths model), so my apologies to the gangsters of the Syndicate but here is the centrepiece of the Tengu faction - Buzenbo.

shown with a normal 32mm scale Bushido warrior
 and this is what I'm hoping he will look like(ish)....


Now if you guys don't get a little excited (in a nerdy/gaming way) by a (32mm scale) 10 foot tall bird-samurai shooting a 8 foot longbow then you are dead from the neck down (joke.....well sort of.....).  Like I say I never normally post just a primed model but I'm seriously excited by this dude so an exception had to be made...

hope you enjoy

  3. I can see why you're really excited about painting such a cool mini. It presses my geek button too! And I don't even play Bushido. Yet. But a '10 foot tall bird-samurai shooting a 8 foot longbow' is quite a lure! Looking forward to seeing the finished result.

  8. This reminds me that I really ought to finish painting Master Crow, although I have a feeling he won't be half as impressive as this chap. I shall look forward to seeing him in all his painted glory once you've finished him off.

  9. Wow ! That's one huge, vicious looking version of "Big Bird", but I'm guessing it'll not be yellow!
    I do wondr how many times it'll be knocked over when playing but even so, it'll be magnificent when you're finished painting it, I've no doubt!

    1. Big Bird on 'roids, Joe! Nope not yellow but yes magnificent. He's on a 40mm base so hopefully not too often but yes I will be careful none the less
