The Kempeitai is a terrorist that undermines the authority of the Yu Jing state and fights for the independence of the Japanese people. On the tabletop she is a pretty useful tool as once your lieutenant is killed by the enemy, she steps up and takes over command of your forces, without going into the loss of lieutenant state.
I wanted to follow the scheme of my Keisotsu, as I like the idea of a cohesive force on the battlefield, so I went with the white and orange scheme on her too. I am really happy with how the colours are working on different models, but the challenge will be painting a more heavily armoured foe with less cloth (and baggy pants).
A minor negative with this mini is the sculpt in certain places are a bit poor. The face in particular is very flat and I had a hard job to give it any depth and character (still dont think I have succeeded). Overall all is good though :)
