While many of the Samurai Battles scenarios do not require command tents, a few do. Wanting to build a comprehensive set of units for the game, a recent Peter Pig sale was an opportunity to pick up a few of these missing pieces.
Included in the composition of each of the command tents are one-half of a Maku screen, generals and messengers, and signalers with drums and conch shell. Enough packs to field two populated command tents.
Since this project has been based for play on a two inch hex grid mat with double sized bases, each command tent is set upon three, 50mm hexes. The 2 x 50mm hexes also fit within Jake's four inch hex mat. Flexibility!
Each command tent's entourage was themed in either red or black lacquered armor to make each easily distinguishable on the battlefield.
