Following on from Oda Nobunaga's army at the Battle of Inō, here's Shibata Katsuie's 1,000 man army from the same battle at 1:1 figure to man ratio. Unfortunately, I still can't use them at the same time so still several hundred figure to paint to do the whole battle in 1:1...

I'll say it again - it's lovely to see a Sengoku army that looks like a army.  :)

Thanks for the kind words all.

Actually managed to get a game in at the local club this week, against my mate's Takeda army which he'd started when I was doing mine and basically forgot about. Anyway, the  Takeda army was intercepted on the way to E-Bay and brought to battle. Inevitably the Takeda won as there appears to be a karmic rule of the universe that I always lose the first game of any set of rules I've designed myself. The Takeda turned away from the E-beidō road and headed back to Kai to paint more figures, so that's something. I'll probably do a bunch of Uesugi command stands to use with my generic bases to provide a more appropriate opponent for the Takeda after I've finished the forces for the Battle of Inō.

Anyway, here's some photos of the action:

With the prospect of Takeda opposition, I figured I'd do some Uesugi command stands for my generic units to make an Uesugi army relatively painlessly. First up is the honjin of Uesugi Masatora (Kenshin), c.1561. The "Bi" banner is likely an Edo period invention, and the "Ryū" banner almost certainly is, but I've kept them anyway as they are so strongly associated with Kenshin that they act as a good 'visual cue' to identifying him on the tabletop, something which 6mm usually needs more than bigger scales.

Amazing looking game!

Your mate’s army looks equally impressive on the table - and both together are fantastic!

The sheer numbers is one thing but then combine that with the top quality paint jobs and attention to detail - the banners, command stands, even the board.
              Just spectacular!!

Also made some Uesugi command stands to improvise an Uesugi army to use against my newly re-discovered Takeda opponent.

Uesugi Masatora, Honjō Saneyori, Murakami Yoshikiyo, Kakizaki Kageie, Amakasu Kagemochi, Usami Sadamitsu and Yamayoshi Toyomori.
