28mm Semi-Naked Female Samurai and Sheepdog from my Secret Santa Clause 2015.........

.........but no sheep!

*Not painted by me, a gift from Santa.........

I actually have the female samurai figure but she remains unpainted (Colonel Bill's Wargaming Depot) part of the Belt Fed Gaming range (Tome Gozen Samurai), I received her at the Broadside Wargaming Show 2014 as a prize for a Posties Rejects best in show game. The sheepdog....not a clue?

I think I know the painter but not a hundred percent sure though.........





Very usable figures........


Tomoe Gozen (巴 御前?) (1157?–1247), pronounced [tomo.e], was a late twelfth-century female samurai warrior (onna bugeisha), known for her bravery and strength.[1] She is believed to have fought in and survived the Genpei War (1180–1185).


Onna-bugeisha (女武芸者?) was a type of female warrior belonging to the Japanese nobility. Many women engaged in battle, commonly alongside samurai men. They were members of the bushi (samurai) class in feudal Japan and were trained in the use of weapons to protect their household, family, and honour in times of war. Significant icons such as Tomoe GozenNakano Takeko, and Hōjō Masako are famous examples of onna bugeisha.

  13. Hail the Prime General of Franonia!! I gazed into my magical polyethylene ball and saw the woman warrior devoured by rampaging cavalry Zeds. In this vision I also saw the dog treated as a wonderful hero by it's survivor sidekick.

  14. Boobies!!!! So many on your blog it is little wonder that Santa Claus thought you liked them!

    As for the dog are you sure it is not really a leprechaun?
    I can confirm that the Border collie is from Warbases. As I bought a pack of them for my sister at SELWG>

  16. Good God where is her breastplate man? I'd feel awful exposed fighting like that with my boobies bouncing about like a target.

  18. I consider it a bit of a shame I've not heard of Tomoe Gozen. I know a few warriors from Japanese history but no women. She sounds like a badass.

  19. Those are two nice presents!

    I didn't fancy painting my own Samurai woman, so she could chopped up to make into a ruined statue. Might have to buy another one now, seeing the gift above.

  21. As a woman, I think I'd rather have some armor covering those up! hehehe

  22. Absolutely love that this marker for honor among females has her knockers out. I'm not being sarcastic or anything either, set 'em free!

  23. You'd think a chick who fights with swords would want to protect her boobies... I certainly would!
