Taking A Stand!

Hey folks! Still alive after all that life has enriched me with. 


I know that I've been awfully remiss in neglecting this blog. And without further ado here's a long awaited article that I'm finally publishing. Thanks for your patience and let's get to it.

I love eye-candy in all my games, so I put forth some effort in making the command stands included in the boxed game as a diorama to compliment my Samurai Battles table.

I'll be using epic 6mm miniatures (previously referred to in an earlier post http://thehistoricalminiaturist.blogspot.com/2015/12/hai-on-more-conversions-part-1.html) to truly capture the scale of these opposing armies. 






Additionally I substituted the Honor and Fortune tokens with some generic Chinese coins obtained online.

Using the provided game accessories to record and document a general's winnings seemed lack luster and uninspired to compliment the epic look and feel of the game.
