Pete from The War Gamer has uploaded a tutorial to YouTube in which he paints a samurai from the Test of Honour (i.e. Wargames Factory) range in Takeda clan colours. Feudal Japanese miniatures have a reputation for being hard to paint, but Pete’s tutorial shows that it’s no harder to paint samurai than any other miniature.

He doesn’t venture into painting the mon (emblem) anywhere on the mini, nor on any banners. Nevertheless, the end result is a great-looking miniature for Test of Honour, or indeed any other game with samurai.
