From Quora

https://www.quora.com/Is-there-proof-that-the-Japanese-samurai-kanabo-tetsubo-was-actually-used-in-warfare

"Anyway, back to the question: there are literary evidences of the Kanabo usage inside the Taiheiki (太平記), a book of the 14th century. This was the first time that such weapons were used and described.

We also have some emakimono depicting their usage. For example, in the original 14th century “Handscroll Poetry Contest of the Twelve Zodiac Animals” (十二類絵巻), there is a Kanabo depicted. Although the setting is pure fantasy and they are animals, they are wearing accurate and real arms and armor of the period."

Could we get some Hatamoto and some Mounted Warrior Monks too please?

Back banners for just about everyone would be great too.

This is one of those ranges where the more poses available, the better. Any chance of upping the numbers there?

   Do I get shot for mentioning that there are many companies making 10mm Japanese? They're not all as good or as cheap, but they're numerous, so those who want samurai or monks in a great variety of poses can get their wish quite easily.
   For me, the ashigaru look best in uniform poses (or nearly so); where multiple poses are produced, I hope they'll be available separately too.
   I must add I have two sizable Japanese armies already. I suspect they'll pick up a few more units from this lot, but I shan't be going overboard on this one.

Kato Kiyomasa. A real son-of-an-oni, this one.

Kuroda Nagasama (aka Damian, after he was baptised). The helmet is a reference to the precipitous cliff down which Yoshitsune attacked at Ichi no Tani.

Tokugawa Ieyasu, glumly wondering if he can do anything with the town of Edo which his boss has just given him as a present.

And Toyotomi Hideyoshi.

There are a LOT of others, but I shouldn't become a field marshal too quickly.

Would we need 46 more ronin? Or just four heroes in a half shell? Smiley

Ashigaru pikemen could follow the lead (not pb ) of your Hellenistic open-handed phalangites. I prefer pikes of a sturdier metal anyway.


Most of this thread is in a foreign language to me - Japanese probably!  Anyway, I agree with you that open hands cast to receive pikes are a much better solution.   All my miniatures' pikes, spears, lances and staffs for flags are carefully removed and replaced with .5mm (.020") K&S brass rod the ends of which are easy to beat into the appropriate point.   Cast metal ones are always far too over-scale, more like telegraph poles, and often too short.
