Eagle and bear

We still have 2 clans left, the deposed Eagle Clan and the Bear clan. The one character i saw an image for from the eagle clan looked awesome.
Any idea when the next 2 fractions are due to be released?
Do we know much about them?

except the drunken eagle leader image from the rulebook there are silhouette images from a female bear clan member and two eagles (basic sword guys i suppose).

Minimoto should get a release next year hopefully.  They wear a lot of armour and use tetsubo & tetsujo.  The Minimoto also take their smiths into battle, and have access to the Yuki no Maio - snow witches.  The Bear Clan may also get a bear.  I would totally expect a bear.

The Shiho Clan are probably going to do a lot with Flank and function as ambush specialists.  I would expect them to get their armoured samurai and ashigaru from their Wolf Clan (Tanaka) allies, but the Shiho themselves will probably loose more like dishelved ronin.  I think.  We'll just have to see.

Last game, watching a Minimoto Samurai one-shotting a model every activation for 2 turns was very satisfying.

It turns out massive strong guys with big metal sticks hit hard.

I don't think you can do that much damage with Rashka so I'm quite curious about these Minimoto Samurai's cost and model count.

It required a lot of set up to be honest.  Its about as likely as say, Masunagi doing the same.

Still cool though.

@GCT Master Enos
Are there any batreps of you guys playing? I'd love to see how you play and what set was involved in turns when the game is played properly.

We have just got a new set of boards and some great scenery locally and we have 2 good quality cameras.  I hope we can put some videos up soon, if we're playtesting, it will have to be with no sound (And proxies usually) but regular games could be done too.  Its just finding time.

I wouldn't go as far as saying "Played Properly" but our 2-time Grand Master can probably put in an appearance.
