I am still working through painting the different unit types for my Samurai project. This week it was a unit of mounted Samurai with retainers. The simple colour palette of blues and grey is working out well for these figures and my painting style is just blocks of colour.

I bought these Miniatures Figurines S Range Samurai figures secondhand a while ago. The horses did not come with any tassels. A look at the Caliver Book site, where some of the S range can still be purchased, showed Samurai horses can no longer be purchased due to a missing mould. To address the lack of decorative tassels I added them using Green Stuff.
An Ashigaru katana was converted to carry a banner using wire and painters masking tape which sticks nicely together when folded around the wire. No messy glue or waiting for the glue to dry.
