Will the Ashigaru all come in one pack or spread across several packs as per the current range?

They'll be split down so that there's 4 Ashigaru packs, and then the same for all of the other sculpts.

Would it be tricky to add the back banners to the close fighting masters?
(I anticipate the answer is a very big YES!!)

Unfortunately it is a big yes on that, the angles that they need to be attached make casting them very difficult and there's a good chance they'd get bent during the moulding process as well.

I may want a few of those. Has the big drum been abandoned?

Oh, is the monk with the big club wearing a conical hat?

They are lovely Figures.  Fortunately for me I have no interest in a Samaurai/Japanese army. So therefore will not be tempted.

( I am having enough problems with Sunjester and his suggestions for Cruel Seas).

Not abandoned, just not done in time for the photos.  It'll be getting done in a separate batch before we get these ready for release.

Ok I'm in, any chance of another pack of armed peasants for a truly random marauding horde? Please, can we have a set of decals for mon and banners to accompany these, as they make or break the overall look of the army. But yes it's going to be fantastic.

Two further questions guys if I may  Cheesy

Can we have a couple of extra packs to the Sohei Monks, a pack of Arquebusier as they were major pioneers of this in their clashes with Oda Nabunaga, and any chance of a mobile shrine as a command stand piece for them.

Second question, will there be a set of rules to go with these guys for larger scale battles, or does anybody have suggestions or pointers in the right direction?

Cheers

We won't be adding any more sculpts at this point, but if the sales go well and enough people want them, we can look at some additions.

Please, can we have a set of decals for mon and banners to accompany these, as they make or break the overall look of the army. But yes it's going to be fantastic.

Yep, we've already got some plans in place so we'll have some decal sheets ready for release.  It's a third-party set that we'll be buying in, before the requests start!

As with the other request, we'll need to see how popular the range is before we plan any additions to it.

Second question, will there be a set of rules to go with these guys for larger scale battles, or does anybody have suggestions or pointers in the right direction?

That'll be one for the other members to help with!

I'm doing the Ancient Persians this week, to hopefully have ready for release before the end of the year.  Then it's straight on to the Japanese as our first release of 2020 I'd expect.

When these are ready, I do advise making the ashigaru available in single-pose packs. I am sure I'm not alone in liking the pikemen and the musketeers in large armies to be in single poses (while samurai, monks, and peasants should max out on variety).

I'm not sure that's something we'd be looking to do but I'll have a think.  It's tricky to gauge which pose would be more popular, so you can either do a 50/50 mould (2 poses) and hope that they sell in similar numbers, or you do a mould for each and end up with loads of spares every spin.

Run a poll, perhaps?
