Yes, they'd be OK. Horses look better than the usual too. I did think about doing it in 15mm with those figures, but I already had a lot of terrain in 28mm.

The same with me I have lots of 28mm Terrain. But I have a lot  of periods in 15mm so the only thing I would need would be 15mm buildings,
 these are some of the buildings we use for Ronin.

You don't really need buildings, just some trees and a few other obstacles. We do keep meaning to put a load of buildings on the table and do one of the fights in Kamakura with bushi riding through the streets.

I think I am going to have to put in a order to Kurhsan and give it a go. I will get a mat from Deep Cut studios they will print the hexes on a nice grass mat. The hexes will be 30mm and the size will be 1mx1m. This can then double for a large playing area for Senjetsu the new boardgame that is just out about Samurai Duels.

It's been a while but back on the table with the Battle of Kawagoe (1546). Hōjō Ujiyasu undertakes an audacious night march to relieve the siege of Kawagoe Castle by the Uesugi. This was to try out using my 'small battle' bases for the big battle 'Tenka Fubu' rules. As those bases are more generic, it's easier to add command bases to make up specific clans, and as Tenka Fubu is grid-based, the game doesn't mind what's actually in the square. So it's just down to the 'look.'

Excellent once again (sorry I missed this one)!

And may I be the first to say "It's the fort that counts"...  :D

Nearly two years since that post and I still haven't done that particular Kawanakajima game.

I've been replacing some of the old cheap Chinese wire trees in my village with some new ones made from 3D printed armatures from Lazy Forger.

Thanks. The tiles are 10cm squares. They're to match the grid size of the mat I use.

So are the mini's based on a 5cm wide base?
