As mmcv says, they were used as improvised defences in a variety of ways.  Our sculptor had made a single one for us to duplicate for the Kuruma Date shield, so we thought we might as well pop it in the range as well.  I've attached a picture our sculptor sent us of a selection of defences (ignore his writing on it!)

The stacked bails of bamboo in bottom right hand corner also look interesting.
As does that mobile siege platform ... but I'd like a Portable Shrine before either please  Cheesy pretty please  Cheesy

I also like the Horo -tsukaiban standard from the resources sheet - very interesting.

Cheers

Leon, a very small niggle in the face of such a great new range but I believe FEU33 should be "Uma Jirushi banners (5)" not "Uma Jinushi banners (5)" as listed currently.

Is that the big gold box carried by about 16 blokes?!  I'll see what we can do...

Good spot, I've updated that.

Yeah, that's what I'd seen elsewhere.  It's not a difficult piece to do, a bit fiddly but we can talk to one of our designers about it.

Simply superb range of figs, and surely should prove popular for an authentic mass effect of the later Samurai period. Plus one for a portable shrine, and can we have a pack of Nobori banner bearers, these were the tall household banners of the elite Daimyo. Please see third figure from left below:

Nobori are effortless conversions. Just use a pikeman.

You got it Leon - ideal for scenarios with belligerent monks - forcing local villagers & townsfolk to knee and respect it - thanks  Cheesy

I'd also like a lot more Ikko Ikki type fighting peasant variants if possible - I'll have to do a search for images - but I remember seeing some contemporary wood-cuts of the Ikko Ikki in a rag-bag mix of looted helmets (no armour) and assorted bits of armour such as just a breast plates or just the arm armour (the bag type mail sleeves - tied across the shoulders) - or even just the armoured tasset-skirts off a harness. Those without helmets with headbands. All in smock type tops and bear legs - running with a mix of long shafted polearms, yari and just sharpened bamboo sticks.  It's an army I have always wanted. And you'd need a heck of a lot of figures.

Careful. Check the dates. I've got a lot of woodblock prints (not woodcuts) that are no more contemporary with Sengoku battles than I am with the Crimean war.

Talking of bears legs Smiley (nice typo btw)... and the rest of the bear .... any chance they're included in 10 Days of Shiny? One can hope!
