Here is a is a small tutorial on how I made my the Satsuma 


The 20mm fegs are from The Eagle Games Miniatures - American Civil War Set 1

Step 1 - I cut the tops off hats & cut down the flage

Step 2 - Get a pencil sharpener & some plastic rode & sharpen the new hat to shape. 
Step 3 - I pined & glued the new hat on. 

Step 4 - The Samurai sword was a cut down pin. on the feg I cut the bag down onn the front to make the holder for the Samurai sword I drilled a small hole for the Samurai sword to go in to.
