Back Steel Fist’s Samurai Warriors On Kickstarter

October 13, 2015 by brennon

Steel Fist Miniatures are on Kickstarter right now looking to fund a range of 28mm Samurai Warriors. Elite Samurai, Teppo Ashigaru and Mounted Samurai are all on the cards in metal and 28mm scale…

Elite Samurai

The Samurai come with a range of very different helmets and armour designs, quite fitting for the various clans and more. I particularly like the chap with the mighty beard. All of the designs you see are based off historical references.

There are also mounted versions of these elite warriors with light warhorses that would give them the speed they needed to take to the battlefield and outflank their foes.

Elite Mounted Samurai

Last but not least they are also working on a more modern aspect of the Samurai, their Teppo Ashigaru. Guns certainly averted the course of history in Japan and as with the rest of the world warfare changed drastically to fit the appearance of such weapons.

Teppo Ashigaru

It’s good that the set is going to come with a range of kneeling and standing Ashigaru. It means you’ll be able to rank them all up to look rather spiffing on the tabletop. Steel Fist also do a whole bunch of different Samurai too so go and check out their webstore too.

What do you think?
