Where are the samurai?

Well, well, almost 3 years later....

Revisiting this to try and come up with a 'big skirmish' game for the Sengoku. I wanted to be able to have around 30-50 figures, but still be able to deal with individual figures rather than units. I don't think there's another game that does this as well as Feudal Patrol. I added an 'army morale' type mechanic which adds additional morale cards to be taken per unit as a force's morale degrades. I also toned down the lethality a bit (a personal view that skirmish games tend to be far too lethal).

Results so far are very promising. Feudal Patrol is well worth a look IMO. It gives you a really good 'toolkit' to fine tune a skirmish game to your own preferences.

Ditto.  :D

Are the large specimen trees home made, they look particularly good.

Thanks. The large tree is a plastic bonsai from China back from when they were cheap.

I've participated in one game of Samurai Patrol (Feudal Patrol with samurai, priests and bandits) at a convention here in the States, and it played pretty well.

I would also love to see your Samurai Supplement. I am planning on using the Viking Supplement, so adding a Samurai version would be fantastic.

I'll get round to writing some thoughts on my 'blog. But any Sengoku version I come up with is unlikely to be typically 'samurai.' So no tetsubos and no-dachis, no clan traits, no challenges and no 'bushido' stuff. I'm also currently playing it on a square grid (because it's much quicker to move stuff around when testing things out), and may end up keeping it (because I like grids....), which also isn't usually very popular. In fact, there isn't currently much about the version I'm playing that has any typical 'samurai' elements.

The 'army morale' thing might be useful, as I think FP needs that kind of thing if you don't have a time-limit scenario, so I'll try and describe how that works.

Revisiting this. Still a work in progress, but had another go at it today. Short write-up on the 'blog as there's still a way to go with it.

Great stuff! Do you have a close up of that "wanted poster"?

Might have to open it in a new tab or download it to zoom in:
