Woo - delivery from Sarrisa Precision:

Movement trays for all my units, plus some bases for my cannons - what size bases do people normally put their war machines on - I have a feeling the ones i've got are a little large :s

Also - laser cut wood smells awesome.

Nippon test colour scheme

First quick tester for colour scheme:

Each of the units will have different coloured armour I think - and different coloured back banners with different markings as wel.

Warhammer Nipponese

L33T First Post.

Welcome to my wargaming blog, you'll find lots of stuff here - hopefully some will be interesting.

First thing I'm going to post about is my new Warhammer Fantasy army, the army of Nippon.

When I heard the Empire book was being re-done it tempted me into starting Warhammer again, coupled with the fact I've just moved to a new area where fantasy is played a bit more than the skirmish games I've recently been playing. I wanted something a bit different to the standard Fantasy races - as I always like to be awkward (my other fantasy armies are Chaos Dwarves and Orcs) - and whilst browsing the web I came across war games factories new Samurai models and the inspiration demon hit.

Despite the hate for war games factory models out there on the internet I was surprised at the quality, granted the samurai themselves are a bit basic and with only a few poses if you want them all armed the same the Ashigaru are pretty great and when ranked up look awesome, so I ordered a few boxes from Maelstrom and started to plan the army.

Long story short after a flurry of knives and glue this is what I ended up with:

Pike regiment finished - it's like an angry warhammer hedgehog:
