GCT Studios have previewed two more of the models for their newest wave of Bushido miniatures. See what you think of Bachiko Takashi and Qimmiq who both seem to have very different philosophies on life…
“Bachiko is as loyal and devoted to her lord as any can claim to be. She lives and breathes to protect the Takashi line as her father and his father before. A masterful swordswoman, hours spent in the service has given her a sixth sense for danger and she alone has foiled many cowardly attacks against those to whom she swears allegiance.”
I really like how they’ve shown off Bachiko here drawing her sword and getting ready to strike down those who would threaten her masters. Maybe it would be nice to see an alternative sculpt of her in the future in the midst of swinging her sword too?
“The quiet and peaceful guardians of the mountains, Qimmiq is a healer, teacher and father to his people. Like all holy men amongst the hill tribes he lives on the outskirts of his village where he can be closest to the wild and listen to the spirits.
He knows the wild as if it were an extention of his own body, as such he knows the ancient uses for all the flora found in the hills, and is able to call on the spirits of the wild to aid him in times of conflict. Calling the roots of trees to bind invaders, or asking favours of the wind to buffet or blow as need requires.”
Once again I think they’ve captured the nature of the character here. I like that we’re getting some humans supporting the Tengu as well and it’s not just all birds! The variety of bright colours used for painting the model also gets a thumbs up from me.
What do you think of this pair?
