After recently pushing out a BMU of Japanese teppo, I made a scrounge of The Lead Pile and cobbled together enough odds and ends to field a heavy infantry unit of foot Samurai and Ronin. These fifteen figures are from Peter Pig's excellent 15mm Samurai range.
My original plan for this project was to fight Samurai Battles in 15mm on a four inch grid. Added into this mix were a couple of battles using Impetvs both off grid and on. All three methods produced enjoyable games with a vast array of color on the battlefield. That was likely four or five years ago. Hard to believe this is another collection that has not made it onto the tabletop in such a long time.
When this project was in its early stages, Samurai Battles appeared on the kitchen table frequently for afternoon, winter gaming sessions. Those were the days. Since the game footprint of Samurai Battles is small, no need to spread it out on the big gaming table in the game room. The entire game and accouterments fit comfortably on the kitchen table. With another fall upon on us and winter approaching, perhaps, Samurai Battles can once again take up intermittent residence on the kitchen table?
