Daï-Bakemono, Die!

Today a package arrived to correct a years-old mistake of mine. You see, years ago, I missed out on the chance to buy a brand new box of Rackham Daï-Bakemono.

With the feudal Japan flame rekindled, I went on a search and found a site that still sold them, but in resin. A transaction was made, and today the fruits of that exchange arrived:
3 big 'orrible ogres, together with the goblin samurai that I ordered at the same time (shown in the top of the picture) they will form the command and muscle of my little band of Bakemono. The troops will come from the Goblin Ashigaru command that I did manage to snag some years ago.
The miniatures are great sculpts, full of character and detail. I'm especially pleased to finally get my mitts on the Daï-Bakemone, wonderful figures! A few details are less "Japanese" than I would like, but that is what conversions are for. One of the Goblin Samurai will get a backbanner and a more fancy helmet and will be the commander of the warband, with the other two armored Goblin Samurai becoming his lieutenants.

These may be next on the list, once I finish my villagers and get started on some terrain....

  1. Wow, nice find.
    These old Rackham sculpts are pretty rare aren't they?
    I look forward to see your conversions.

    1. True, they're worth the search though.
      The conversions won't be anything major, just corrections of details I find disagreably non-japanese.
