This looks, to me, totally amazing!

I am so impressed by the sheer level of feel you get from this. Sloping hills, lots of banners and the whole visual impact. Really impressive!

Thanks. After all those clever terrain solutions over the years, we're going back to essentially shoving things under blankets to make hills... :)

Made some ikkō-ikki command bases, along with a 'generic' honjin to stand in for army commands where I don't have a specific one. Infantry figures are 3D printed by Project Wargaming, mounted figures by Baccus.





The command bases will be used to attach to generic infantry units, so I can have a large pool of such units that can be used as any army with the addition of a few specific command bases.

Bit of a sidetrack, but I've had "Clash of Spears" rules for ages and finally got around to trying them out. But in 6mm. So each 25mm base of 6mm figures is equivalent to one 28mm figure, meaning the figure scale is 1:1. I'd been thinking about a game that was around 500-1000 men a side with a 1:1 figure scale, and had a go a while back using Sharp Practice. I think Clash is a better option, though a Sengoku version will end up on the back burner for a bit I think. Anyway, it's a very good game.

Another set of command figures done for the small battles project. These are Oda clan. The photos here show the basic principle of using generic units with command groups appropriate to a particular army added. Here the same units are used for ikkō-ikki and Oda by changing the command groups.

The more generic troops with two lots of command stands works really well - the banners on the commanders totally change the look of the forces.

Yes, I'm quite happy with how it's turned out. There'll be higher level commanders to add as well.
