6mm Sengoku Jidai
« on: July 12, 2017, 10:21:05 PM »
Some pics from a recent 6mm Sengoku Jidai game. The rules used were a version of 'Pulse of Battle.' Each 5 base unit represents a mix of troop types and weapons, the actual figures on the bases that make up the units isn't significant. All the units are essentially the same. The two armies are Oda and Mori.


The Oda deployed in foreground. The Mori advance in the background.



Maeda Toshiie with some Hashiba troops march past a shrine:



View from the Oda left:



The Oda centre. The Mori appear on the horizon



Mori Terumoto in his honjin, surrounded by Mori troops.



Kobayakawa clan arrive on the Mori left.



As Maeda and Kobayakawa fight over the bridge, Oda Nobutada leads his men forward.



Fierce fighting as Maeda drive back the Kobayakawa



A lull in the fighting as the Kobayakawa fall back to regroup



Meanwhile, in the centre, The Mori main force attack the Oda centre. Oda teppo open fire.



Maeda gains the upper hand against Kobayakawa and force them from the field.



With the Kobayakawa routed, Maeda turns on the Kikkawa in the Mori centre. The Oda advance and the Mori collapse:

Beautiful looking game. Am I right in thinking you've got some farmers in your fields? Architectural miniatures?

Yes, they're still working away displaying admirable stoicism. The figures are actually GHQ Vietnamese civilians. I couldn't find anyone else doing Oriental civilians in 6mm.

I DO like to see Momoyama battles that actually look like battles, not a punch-up outside the Fugu-and-Chips stall. And in 6mm - gad, you're brave!
The laws of probability do not apply to my dice in wargames or to my finesses in bridge.

  Wow. this is just AWESOME! Plus you re using one of my favorite rule sets. I have a ton of painted 20mm-1/72 Samurai. Just no rule set. Is this POB variant posted anywhere? I would love to see it.

Thanks,

John

Thanks. There's not much to the rules variant, the biggest thing was I changed it to work on a grid for movement. Otherwise it's standard PoB. Each unit is essentially the same 'combined arms' entity, average values are C10 D8 and each unit shoots with a D8 (short range 1 square, long range 2).

Each army has a Messenger marker or two, these are allocated to commanders on a command card. The 'Move 1 command' card then means that you can move 1 command that has an attached messenger.

The Tactical Advantage card is replaced by a 'Bushi' card. This can be played to end a combat after one round, prevent an opponent following up or to give a die shift at the start of a combat. There's a duelling mini-game that's then played in order for the chosen mode to succeed. (Many of the anecdotal acts of heroism in the Sengoku accounts are to do with what are essentially rearguard actions).

I think I'm going to work on a non-PoB version but if that doesn't work, then PoB is a decent fall-back.
