Hey,

First time posting (I think) on the boards. I thought I'd share my WIP Tora team. Some details still need to be resolved (hello, eyeballs), but overall I think they're shaping up. I used my airbrush to block in the red (about 5 layers) and then built up the other colors with some basic layering, feathering and washes/glazes.

I have a tournament with some friends on March 5th so I'm hoping to have as much done by then as possible. I still need to knock out my Chunin, x1 Madoushi, x2 Yajiri and some ronin. If I can I'm hoping to also paint up the lanterns and shrines.

Here's hoping!

Byakko...

Kunoichi [Front]...

Once I hit the above deadline I'm hoping to paint up my Tanchyo next. I'll keep you updated! :D

drat! the drawing of the Tora kunoichi is one of my absolute favorites. Then I was disappointed from the look of the mini in the rulebook. And now... your mini brings it all back. Looks gorgeous. :$

Thanks! I appreciate it.

I only started with Tora because it was the one faction none of my buddies were into. Now, after looking more closely at the art and painting the models they're among my favorite clans. I can't wait to try them on the tabletop!

I really like what you're doing with these; your Oni in particular looks great. I can't wait to see more.

Looking good! Can't wait to see them finished. Your NMM old is excellent.

These are beautiful!

Out of curiosity, why'd you decide to go without pupils/irises in their eyes?

Thank you for your kind words. Regarding the eyes, the models weren't done in that first wave of photos and the eyes were some of the last things I did. Here are some updated shots. I only took photos of each of the basic troops, but the image shown is representative of each type in terms of completeness.

- Chunin: Needs minor detailing and varnish.
Image

- x1 Madoushi: Same as chunin.
Image

- Hanzo: Needs a lot of work still.
Image

- x4 Kaiken: Done.
Image

- x2 Yajiri: Need minor detailing and varnish.
Image

- x2 Kunoichi: Done.
Image

- x1 Oni: Done.
Image

- Byakko:
Image

- x6 Lanterns: Need some minor touch ups, they were done hastily with the airbrush.

I addition to polishing off the ones noted above, I need to get going on Ryu. I'm not sure I'll do my second Oni and Madoushi right away. I think I want to move onto more ronin and a second clan. I'm thinking Tanchyo is next.

Oh, haha, I somehow missed the part where you said the eyes weren't done. :D Looking great!
