So this is a mixed bag, I got the ashigaru first, and man are those in lots of pieces. I get it gives lots of options, but it also makes them complex to put togeather. and quite frankly my first attempt wasn't that good, lots of spaces between the parts ect. hell I even glued the damn swords wrong side up, and didn't notice it until I was gonna paint them.
But they paint up ok, samurai/ashigaru are never easy to paint.
