Thanks for the review of the WF Samurai. Now that I've read your review, I am considering trying a box or three. (can't beat the price). The minies/photos turned out well.
I have a fair number 400-500 of other WF 28mm goodies, foot and mounted...chariots too. Several of their later minies are up to front (command) rank, detailing wise.
I am a VERY big fan of plastic 28mm historical minies (same reasons as yours too). Well...I am lazy, as one more reason. I just do basic painting and minor converting...Takes me about 3 weeks to do a box of WF minies.
