GCT Studios has put together another look ahead to the next wave of miniatures coming for Bushido. Here we have some basic troops for you to use in your growing Ito Clan force looking at the Okyo Ashigaru.
“Ashigaru are the mainstay of the houses of Jwar, making up the bulk of all the major and minor clans’ military forces. As one would expect they personify the teachings and martial practices of their lords. The Bear are strong and tough, the Dragon, drilled and brave and the Snake cowardly but cunning.
Using their numbers to their advantage when fighting as a unit they are a formidable foe.”
The models look fantastic, especially consider they are effectively regular soldiers. A lot of effort and detail goes into bringing the different clans to life nd I think they’ve done an exceptional job here. I really like the style of the armour which almost has a hint of the ‘snake skin’ about it.
While I know that green is a big thing for the Ito Clan I’d love to see these done in different snake colours using reds, yellows and blacks.
What do you think of the Okyo Ashigaru?
