thanks for Steve Evans for the amendment on the arguebus armed troops, that works much better

Still not completely happy with the Head takers and Challenges Legends rules, but for now, they can be tried out and see how we get on.

Next lists for this period will include the Koreans, Ikko Ikki and Ming Chinese - all three are in progress

I have edited some of the following posts from earlier versions to keep the thread clean and relevant

Feedback and comments welcome thank you

Rob, I just want to give you thumbs up for this - I'm holding myself from investing in historicals for a while, due all those book "changes", tight budget and all-metal, expensive models. But now with all thta I'm hearing about WaC, this list and the latest releases from Wargames Factory, seems that finally the time is right!

The lists are all free, all you need to do is buy the rulebook (and there are pictures of Samurai in there)

Post Re: The Samurai
Matchlocks were introduced to Japan by Portuguese traders around 1543. Within 5 years the Japanese were making matchlocks as good as any available. From 1550 to the early 1600s Japanese battles went from a few hundred or thousand participants to tens, even hundreds, of thousands as the warlords armed their peasants with matchlocks. This was effectively the end of the Samurai culture from the 'honourable single combat' model (they did have a dueling culture) to one of overwhelming force and numbers which saw the rise of the Shogunate and a united Japan.

Wikipedia Samurai Weapons

A Samurai had to be adept at the Japanese Longbow, which has the grip in the bottom third of the bow. It would be fired either standing or from horse back.

Post Re: The Samurai
DAVE summed it up

By 1600, Samurai thought it was odd to see other Samurai with bow, but in earlier times, like nobility and retainers in other areas of the world, being good with a bow was important

Cannon were rarely used in field warfare, so I may have to limit their list use. :mrgreen:

My Koreans sit awaiting basing.. A nearby opponent has Ming Chinese ready to play so once I have completed the War & Sorcery material I should really get and finish those two lists off :mrgreen:

Which manufacturers are you using?

Sorry I never replied oops.

I'll be going with Perry Miniatures for Koreans. Not sure I am going to do Chinese.

BTW, if you haven't looked into Steel Fist Miniatures for Samurai, I suggest you check them out!

The Perry Koreans are very nice - I have a few, plus lots from Scheltrum

Heard of Steel Fist but not really checked them out yet as I have quite a Samurai backlog to paint
