I was always rather ambivilent about Clan Wars. I was a huge L5R fan back in the day, and ran Deathseeker.com, the number 1 L5R site. I liked the figures, and the game played okay, but I wanted to see massed samurai armies, to the point that I considered painting 6mm samurai armies and making my own rules. Ah well, I have lots of ideas that never get done.
I painted this Hida Sukune figure for the Clan War author.
I happen to think he looked pretty good. I guess I called the author to see if he had received it, and he opened it while I was on the phone with him. His comment, in a rather sour tone, was, "He's red." Well, no duh. Hida Sukune's armor in every picture of him ever is red. Whatever. I told him if he wasn't going to use it that I'd pay to have him mail it back to me because I was rather fond of it. He did.
