Hey all, I was thinking of making the Trio from Samurai Champloo from the existing Ninja Allstar range. I am decent with green stuff, I was just thinking what models might you all recommend for Mugen, Jin, and Fuu.

I just finished painting Komuso to make him look like the East India Dutch Traders.

I'm not sure there's a good match for Mugen but I'd look at the blind swordsman for Jin and either Mochizuka or the Moon Princes as a starting point for Fuu.

Edit: A heavily modified Bakusho Mondai might get you close to Mugen.

i have been planning on doing the same (SC is prob my fav anime of all time), their was a mini from the aq:inferno campaign that had a good enough head for Mugen, and just place it onto one of the NAS models, for Jin, the blind swordsman is relatively close but would prob need some more work, as for Fuu, hadn't really thought that far ahead


edit - yeah those 2 are fairly close, mozuki gun chicks head on the Oni baba, that could be a bit too freaky

Thanks all for your suggestions! I think I might have to do some custom sculpts for the bodies for Mugen and Fuu. I am thinking that the female barbarian head from SDE might actually work well for Mugen's head.

Actually, I think the wandering Minstrel head looks pretty close to Mugen's. Once again thanks for all the reference pics!

Ooooh, might have to get my minstrel out today and check that, altho he is part of the "Band" of my party of Chars, the new male clawtribe will be their new drummer, so not sure if i can justify hacking up the shredding mando player, altho i could just buy another one.......

Got my Wandering Minstrel and Kunoichi Candy today. I am going to turn Candy into Fuu, it will take a lot more modification. The Wandering Minstrel into Mugen should be a lot easier, just need to figure out how to undo the glue that they come with.
