This is the Hokibo, Kurama Samurai – Tengu Descension. It is an impressive miniature like most of theirs are. I got a look at Salute this year and an even better look when they were at Gen Con (loving the UK companies coming over) and I was very impressed in the miniatures.
I must confess I had not known much about this game before my time here at Beasts of War, but now that I have seen it, it is on my must have list.
The only thing that stopped me from scooping it up at Gen Con was I had too many projects going.
This Tengu Descension, looks very facanating and I am finding it hard to resist, the background story for Hokibo is drawing me in:
Where the Suzume are the most common, the Kurama are a rarity at the hatching. They are the largest, proudest and strongest warriors amongst the Tengu. Hokibo being a prime example of the Tengu warrior caste. There are few who can be called his equal with a blade, but as the Tengu are taught one’s mind must be as keen as the blade they wield.
Hokibo’s knowledge of tactics lets him know what the enemy are planning sometimes before they do. His fluid strikes slice steel like rice paper, in combat a single flex of powerful wings can launch him to his feet or force smaller foe away.
I have always been a fan of ancient oriental fantasy and the folklore associated with this. Oh, the temptation!
Have you played Bushido? Is it as awesome as it looks?
