As tempting as it was to paint these ninja black, I went for the more historically accurate navy blue. The black ninja costume of modern media comes from kabuki theatre. These ninja are on a deadly night mission, otherwise they would be dressed according to their objective. I remember back in the 1980s, when playing a ninja in the Bushido RPG, the ninja was a master of disguise and would also be an ordinary peasant, soldier, etc. by the light of day. Apart from Tae Kwon Do, that's the closest I've ever come to ninjitsu.
Speaking of deadly assassins, I also have a pair of Grenadier Scorpions underway. These are fantastic miniatures, which have been sitting in my unpainted lead box for thirty years!
|Four of these are definitely Citadel... the other two are Dixon?|

God bless you and have a great week!
