GCT Studios have previewed the first member of a new faction within the world of Bushido. Here we have Buto who used to fight for the Silvermoon Trade Syndicate and now takes to the seas to pillage and steal from those who use the waterways. We also have another great look at upcoming models…
He’s looking like a deadly warrior with that axe of his and I would imagine the boat you’re on might capsize as soon as he steps on it! I would probably hand my cargo over to him in a heartbeat. Following on from him we have Lady Oka who might find herself being one of the pirates victims…
“Lady Oka is as deadly as she is beautiful. Raised in the luxury of Ryu she is a great power in the court and has learned to use the weapons gifted to her just as expertly as those crafted of polished steel and lacquered wooded in the dojo.
A nimble and dexterous warrior she wields the traditional weapon of a lady of the samurai caste, with a natural ease and elegance. She moves across the battlefield with the poise and grace of a dancer, avoiding blows and missiles as if they were not even there.”
In saying that I think she might be more of a handful that you first expect with that deadly glaive of hers. I could see her being very unassuming when you first meet her and then suddenly in a flash of steel she would have your head off.
Following on from her we have some Takashi Houseguard which are guardians of the Perfecture of Ryu of which she is a member. They would be her guards on the roads keeping an eye on her.
I’m not sure that they’re going to be quite as up to the task as she is in combat but they might be able to hold their own. I like that they are both very different looking which is always helpful when you have ‘mook’ type characters to back-up your main force that have the same stats. You don’t want to get too confused!
Will you be waiting for more from the Pirates?
