Bushido Unboxing Pt 2

More piccies yay!!

Hiro Takashi - The Dragons Claw

Ashigaru Spear - note this character is female. This is actually accurate to Japanese traditions. Women were allowed to fight alongside the men, though only the upper class women attained the term Onna Bugeisha.

Ashigaru Arquebus - this weapon was actually in use towards the end of the Japanese feudal period. With the advent of gunpowder and Western traders, gun became more common. The movie 'The Last Samurai' is a great example of the two worlds colliding - the old and then new.

Ashigaru Spear - Male version this time. These were the foot sloggers, the basic infantry unit of all medieval armies. Like their Western contemporaries, they had basic, cheap weapons and armour; if any armour at all.

Hanso, Ashigaru Sergeant
