I've assembled some scenery kits from Fukei. Lovely, and oh so Japanese:

Very nice! The Bamboo "moulding" around the outside is a great touch, too! Good inspiration for a RONIN game! thumbs up

Stunning! Well done.

Fantastic looking table! Very picturesque.

Ha ha – the bamboo edging was purely serendipitous! I needed a board to carry my buildings out into the garden for the photography session, and just happened to find an old broken bamboo-framed mirror frame close at hand.

I didn't even notice the 'clever' touch of having a bamboo surround to my Asian scene until your posting, Mr Canuck!

That's really fantastic! Did you make the cherry blossoms or buy them?

Arteis03 Sep 2013 1:18 a.m. PST

Thanks for the nice comments, everyone.

Cuchulainn, the cherry trees were el cheapos bought from Hong Kong on eBay. See my posting about them here: link

Looks very realistic, nicely done Arteis.

Well done. Reminds me of one of the WWII maps in one of the past Call of Duty game.

Lovely stuff!!

Oh how lovely, not stereotypical at all;) can almost smell the fragrance in the hot breeze on that warm spring day in Osaka 1889. You inspire me,thanks.

Lovely. Now it just needs shakuhachi* music to complete the ambiance.

*Traditional Japanese end-blown wooden flute. Often associated with Zen meditation. Perry Miniatures makes a "monk of emptiness" with said flute and face-concealing basket hat.

I prefer to call that "atmospheric" rather than stereotypical. Or "archetypical."

And I can totally smell the sakura.
