I picked up a set of these. My only criticism is that I wish that they had included arquebus-armed infantry in addition to archers.

Wouldn't the arquebusiers have been later than "Feudal"?

"Feudal" is a broad term regarding Japanese History. It applies to many hundreds of years.

If the term ashigaru is used, as it is in the text of the advertisement, then Kent is not amiss in wishing for men armed with a teppo.

These paper figures do look very nice, though, and I hope that they will be both popular and useful in pulling more people into the era.

I apologise I did not notice "Ashigaru" in the text.

Pretty innocent mistake, Porkmann ^^
Hope to see you in a game someday!

Is that a no-dachi, or is he just happy to see us?

Hi. In the second set, there are arquebusiers. And yes, it is an odachi or nodachi. There is a miniature with an odachi in the second set too.
