Samurai Archers and some Test of Honour Terrain.


I opted to add a pair of Samurai Archers for games of Test of Honour.  These guys are both from AEGs Legend of Five Rings line, so they are a bit a-historical.  Basically a mix of early and late period armor, but they work well for  a skirmish.

Speaking of which, I also picked up Sarissa's lantern set for Test of Honor.  These make for some fairly good scatter terrain, and apparently have some rules associated with them in the Ninja supplement (if I ever decide to pick it up.) 

Along with the lanterns you get a pair of Katana shaped rules that make it rather entertaining for the younger crowd.  As you can see they are marked off with 1" measurements.  6" for the  blade and 3" for the hilt.  Overall works just fine for the game.

  3. Jake, you have done a fine job on the archers. These are some of my favorites in this project. The notion of katana rulers is nifty one.

  4. Very nice work on these classic figures, Jake. I think the armor is quite similar to OG samurai - as well as the bow.

    1. I do like the look of them. I just don't recall seeing the larger Archer's arm guards paired with a Steel Curaiss. The bows are well sculpted and really give Samurai armies a unique look.
