Another miniature has appeared to join the Asiatic fantasy skirmish combat of Bushido; the Child of Orochi, the temple servants of the Ito Clan’s sinister serpent god.
“The Children of Orochi serve in his temples, young Ito pledged to their father, they give everything including their souls to the Great Coiled One, in the hope that he will bestow them with his favour and change their imperfect forms which they are cursed to wear until they have proven themselves worthy.
So devoted to him that his chosen are able to use their bodies as conduits of his power, further extending his reach and the power of the Shisai.”
It looks like the Child of Orochi will be an useful strategic support piece to bring to the table, quite apart from the fact that it is an excellent miniature.
There’s a sensuality here, made very disturbing by the presence of the snake wrapped around her body, as well as the cuts and marks covering here, although whether these are part of the sculpt or an addition by the painter I can’t say.
Which Bushido faction do you bring to battle?
