Post Ideas for New Miniatures

Greetings everyone;

 Let's post some cool ideas to help Bushido become an even better game (not that they need the ideas, but I'm sure they'd be welcome). 

 

We could use a simple format

Name

Faction

Fluff

Description

Notes/Abilities

(Feel free to comment on this one.)

1. Moto, the Headmaster;

Faction: Yurei

Fluff: Moto was the corrupt owner of several geisha houses. He was a morbidly obese man who was reviled by many, but followed by those who had nothing else. His only love was the money he made, and even when his city was assaulted and destroyed by Yurei, his willpower helped him cling to his only love. He was beheaded while assaulting one of the geishas he commonly abused.

Description: (for those familiar with Confrontation, some models had a mounted or dismounted presentation with different stats, this could be beginning of the same)

 Moto, mounted: a very fat man, sitting on a palanquin which is being carried by 4 geishas, doubled over as if almost breaking their backs. His expression has a wide open mouth, screaming insults and orders.

Command, Disturb Flow (shows how annoying he is), Immoveable , Strong Mind, Unstable, Slow

 Moto, dismounted: just the head of this fat man, resting in a pillow, carried by a geisha that has been badly beaten. 

Command, Disturb Flow, Strong Mind, Small

Notes:  

Feat 'Out of my way!' a weaker version of heed my word, would force target to move in the exact opposite direction away from Moto.

 

2. Tsao Lin, the hermit

Faction: Temple of Ro Kan; Savage Wave

Fluff: Tsao Lin was a peaceful monk who retired and left the Temple to live on his own, to become one with everything and later on die and become part of everything. Wherever he went he brought peace with him, and despite his training, he refused to fight. One day his small cabin was found by a horde of the Savage Wave and attacked. He was forced to defend himself, and took many an opponent down with ease. But the horde seemed to be neverending, and eventually he succumbed. He woke up to torture, to seeing bakemono eating his right arm that had just been chopped off. For months he was given nothing but beatings, claws and bites, becoming a toy of the Oni, and kept alive just for their amusement. He fiercely fought to keep his mind strong and at peace (according to the faction chosen he either succumbed and got crazed or survived and escaped to aid the Temple).

Description: Tsao Lin is old, although not as old as Master Ekusa, but appears to be older because of the extreme torture he underwent. He is missing his right arm, but his mind adapted him to make up for the handicap and is still a formidable opponent. His hair is unkempt, but determination (crazed or not) is still seen on his face.

Notes: Light Footed, Lightning Reflexes, Last Stand, Flank

Temple: add Indomitable, Impenetrable Defense

Savage Wave: add Oni Rage, Ranged Defense

Feat: Waves of Fury, spend 6 Ki to double his MS, character is then exhausted for 2 turns (or something along that line)

i would like a mounted samurai as well but i dont see how to do the movement well as anything mounted will be able to hit the opposition in turn 1 which is pretty powerful disruption and if its only move 5 then its no faster than a fast human

Well I’ve always wanted some basic cult grunts like simple burakumin or some nezumi grunts =’] just cheap odder that isn’t slow haha but I have always had this idea.....

Name: Jorogumo

Faction: Cult Of Yurei

Description: Jorogumo is a yokai known as either the ‘blinding bride’ or a spider woman, so I imagine a blind multi limbed woman

Fluff: Jorogumo in her human life was a young bride insanely in love with her criminal husband and mad enough to even be in on his crimes. When her husband was caught by the Takashi clan and executed. Hungry for revenge she slipped into the night with her bow and arrow and attempted to assassinate the lord who gave the order to execute her departed husband. However she was caught and thus as punishment she was blinded. As an irony of the taksahi lord being the last face she’ll ever see, she was also tied up to a post for the public to see and shame. Blinded, weak and hungry she heard voices and made herself a yurei bargain for the strength to take her revenge.

Notes/Abilities:

So traits I had in mind was sixth sense (she doesn’t need eyes to see), reload 2, conspiracy of the cult

Ki feats having three shots a minute

And have a unique ability that if she does a ranged attack and has a success level it works like a combo attack. E.g. if got success level 4 shell do a success level 2 and then 0 after (to represent her have multiple limbs firing arrows really quick)

This is either a horrible idea or a good idea depending on how english law works. US Movie studios dont open letters containing manuscripts they didnt order to avoid beeind sued for plagarism.

The US and English system ar both based on common law. Someone with an english law degree would have to chime in.

If it works along the same lines as movie scripts then all were doing here is garanteeing that our ideas will never be implemented to avoid legal liability.

Proving that you comissioned a sculpt before the post shows up is easier then proving that you wherent influenced by the rules suggested in here as they have to go through testing before beeing finalized.

 

I know this thread comes out of a love for the game but it can possibly do more harm then good.

Until its sorted out either by GTC or someone that works in the correct legal field I would advice against posting ideas in here. My own law degree is based in a roman-germanic law system so I dont know enough about common law to be of any use.

I'm pretty sure this is meant to be a fun exercise and that no one is planning on suing anyone.

I'm also confident that people could not create every possbile combination of traits and feats and then sue us for printing the material as its our IP already.

 I see cultist are posting ideas, but they should never forget to carry on their respective daily sacrifices if they want to be listened by Yurei. Cult needs another Burakumin, so a mixture of the two already existing models came up long ago. As I see it difficult to get enough Silvermoons anytime to create a model, I'll just spam it here.

Name: the embalmer (just throw in any filthy burakumin name before that)

Faction: cult of yurei

Fluff:  Outcast from more places that he can even remember, this burakumin has become another foul instrument of the Yurei. His devious skills have been polished by countless macabre interventions, both on living and dead, and now he can improve them further with dark powers in the best playground he could ever have dreamed about.

Description: A standard burakumin with a couple of tricks in form of flasks and empowering fluids for kairai.

Traits: Ammo (2), Conspiracy of the Cult (1), Light Weight

Special Attacks/Defenses: None        Ranged Attack: 2/4/6

Ki Feats: - (A) Pu6 2Ki Corrosive Balm: Every model within a 2'' radius of a friendly Kairai of your choice receives 1 poison (or fire? something else?) token. Then, remove that Kairai from the game.

(A) Personal 3Ki Empowering Balm: This model gains the trait Order (3/Kairai/6) until the End Phase.

Unique Abilities: This models ranged attacks deal no damage. Instead, a successful ranged attacks makes the target become Held.

 

I think a Cult model with an ability to turn enemies Held will be on its way, but this would also be a nice way to introduce it and, by the way, give an extra utility to Kairai.

Well, I for, one, allow GCT studios/Bushido and all related to use my ideas in any way they see fit. They can change it, discard them, get ideas, whatever they want. I want to enrich the world and the game, not to profit from it. 

I don't think they'd ne that paranoid, but there's always malicious people out there, so I see the point in your comment dmeep. Therefore, because this meant as just a fun exercise using the rules of the game anyone who posts, can you please write somewhere:

 

GCT Studios is allowed to use this ideas in any way they see fit in order to enrich the game or create character (or something along those lines?). 

 

By the way, Love the Burakumin/embalmer idea!!

I haven't really thought of specific characters or models but I have thought of a cool mechanic for models... Some sort of "blood fued" or "sworn to revenge" type thing.Some generic ideas.

An exiled pupil who swears revenge on an old teacher who would get some kind of bonus (or even penalty) against him in combat.

Like in the classic "Dance of the drunken mantis", the master of the drunken fist of the north challenges the master of the drunken fist of the south to see who is the true master.

A samurai gets some bonus when fighting any takashi for killing his master/family.

These models would get no bonuses/penalty against other models than the ones specified. Could be cool for some epic battles between sworn enemies.

Sounds like an interesting Special Enhancement card. If only there was a competition runningwink

I love the kid's idea. Just give him a -1 or -2 melee weapon, small size and elusive with 2 MS and coordinated attack (Samurai), utterly coward but gains bravery when 2'' from a Samurai model. About 4 wounds and 4 rice cost depending on any other additional traits. Problem s that he would require some Ki eats or Unique effects to give him a unique feel and make a difference from other Prefecture 4-5 rice models.

Two very quick drawings for a Ito swordsman idea: a blind samurai that has one arm mutating into a giant snake.

As snakes have poor eyesight, I thought of associating the concept of a blind samurai with the ability of snakes to use their forked tongue to sense movement.

 

Let me know what you think ;-)

Here are a couple of ideas from Phoenix, Arizona

Prefecture of Ryu

Name: Niten Fumio

Faction: Prefecture of Ryu

Fluff: When Niten was 13, he wrote his name on a challenge made by a traveling samurai that wanted to hone his art. A messenger came to the temple where Niten was staying, to inform Niten that his duel had been accepted by the samurai. Dorin, Niten's uncle, was shocked by this, and tried to beg off the duel in Niten’s name, based on his nephew's age. The samurai, named Kihei, was adamant that the only way his honor could be cleared was if Niten apologized to him when the duel was scheduled. So when the time set for the duel arrived, Dorin began apologizing for Niteni, who merely charged at Kihei with both a katana and wakizashi, shouting a challenge to Kihei. Kihei attacked with a wakizashi, but Niten threw Kihei on the floor, and while Kihei tried to get up, Niten struck Kihei between the eyes and then slashed him to death. Kihei was said to have been arrogant, overly eager to battle, and not a terribly talented swordsman.

This was the first of many duels won by the upstart young ronin.

Description: An unkempt ronin with wild hair with a katana in one hand, and a wakizashi in the other.

Notes/Abilities

Traits: Fearless, Feint (1), Martial Prowess (1), Parry (1)

Ki Feats:

Kejutsu Throw-This model gains Throw Attack (0) until the current action is resolved.

Ten-Uchi-This model gains Unblockable Strike until the current action is resolved.

Unique Effect:

This model gains Defensive and Indomitable (1) if outnumbered.

Special Attacks/Defenses:

Critical Strike Attack (1)

Combo Attack (0)

Counter Attack Defense (1)

 

Name- Dorisuto Orin& Guweniba

Faction: Savage Wave

Fluff- An albino Rinsho Bakemono that is an incredibly skilled swordsman, having an uncanny hearing ability to engage his enemy as well blinding his enemy by reflecting light from his twin swords. He fights like a tornado of blades, and has inspired even some of the Dai Bakemono with his Leadership and Skill.

He exerted his will against one of the Bakemono’s greatest enemies, known as Mukade-Rui, and has kept a female as a fighting companion. When other Bakemono see the Centipede, their bravery is bolstered to a berserk fury.

Description- A tall and skinny Rinsho Bakemono with two flashing scimitars, and a Giant Centipede wrapping around one of its victims.

Notes/Abilities

Traits: Bravery, Martial Prowess (1), Jump Up

Flashing Swords-Give target enemy model Blind condition

Ghost Strike-Gain Feint (1) and Powerful Strike (1) until the end of the current action.

Inspiring Presence-Give target friendly model Bravery

Unique Effect:

Dorisuto-This model gains Impenetrable Defense unless outnumbered.

Dorisuto-Bakemono within 3” of Dorisuto gain Bravery

Guweniba-Bakemono within 6” of Guweniba (except Dorisuto) gain the Berserk Condition

Special Attacks/Defenses:

Dorisuto: Combo Attack (0), Counter Attack Defense (1)

Guweniba: Critical Strike (1)

 

What do you think?

Miyamoto Musashi! However historically he wasn't a ronin, as he was never a Samurai. He was a swordsman but he did partake in some battles.

He was undefeated in his duels and is considered one of History's greatest warriors. While he's famous for his Hyoho Niten Ichi Ryu (two heavens as one) style, he also favoured wooden weapons. Apparenlty he defeated an opponent with a tre branch he grabbed from a pile (or was it a fire?) and in one of his more famous victories he used a sword carved from a wooden oar!

Yeah, I'm a bit of a fan!

For new models, I think it's time to see the Kappa in the Jwar isles! Kitsune, Tengu and Tanuki have shown up already, it's the Kappa's turn now!

I think the Kappa should be in the Temple of Ryu along with the other big name Yokai they already ahve.

Also known as Astraeos on Warseer!

I've read some hideous stories about bloodthirsty Kappa that devoured incautious travelers, leaving just their skin. I think the Kappa version in Bushido will be a more "happier" one that suits the temple.

GCT has a Kappa in their file you can see at conventions.

Was just thinking about the Spider-women (aka the Jorōgumo) the other day. I suspect it will be a Cult model with an immobilize attack (maybe something similar to what the new Kappa does) but the imagry of a half-human monster with a poison mechanic DOES imply Ito... cross faction?

There is an arsenal of monster ideas here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Y%C5%8Dkai

There are also 5 remaining Sins for the Cult to summon (Envy, Glutton, Greed, Pride, Lust) and their Orphan Summoners.

I'm also wondering about what other cross-faction possibles there are to still be had. Some brainstorming:

  Ryu Ro-Kan Cult Wave Ito Silver Tengu
Ro-Kan Grey Pillgrum - -          
Cult Wyrm Tounge :P Corupt Monk - -         
Wave Bakemono Advisor

Bakemono Monk

Tenbatsu - -       
Ito Gold Sentinal/ Envoy Anger Fueled Monk Jorogumo (Spider woman?) Daemonic Snake - -    
Silver

Gold Sentinal/ Envoy

Gambling Monk Lawyer/ Tax Collector Oni-Blood Fed Buto Gold Sentinal - -  
Teng Samurai Tengu Ambassador Bare-fist Fighing Tengu/ Hill Folk Shikome (Harpy)

Oni-Blood Fed Tengu

Lightning Reflexes Tengu Hillfolk Merchant - -
ShadoWin A second Ryu Ninja (pls :D ) Spirit-Block Nin Nin with Rise Bakemono Nin :P High Poison Nin Bling-ja (Ninja with Bling) One-Winged Tengu Ninja (with looong silver hair...)

The image alone is uber cool! Would love to see some "scaling on the "snake-side" of his chest under his robe. But the concept alone is damn sweet! Very cool and clever.

I don't play Ito but a friend does, and two other locals, so this would be sweet to see on the field.

This model begins the game in the disguised state
As for rice cost. Dunno probably around the 10.

I think Yuki-onna or something similar will definetly be in the game sooner or later, because if you read the book the Minimoto stuff has some snow maiden thingies if my memory serves me right which do sound pretty mutch like the yuki-onnas.

I like the idea of the old man in the shadows.

Although I feel for KKZ the order may be a bit much. Effectively you use a 6 point model to regain the use of 9-11 point models. Expecially with the addition of Vitality (so you are able to reposition him and give the order). Thus i suggest drastically dropping the range of the order (to btb of a few inch) so it actually takes quite a bit of tactics to use him well, but the pay of can also be quite large. That way he actually takes some effort to use well and he might wish to use his own actions instead of ordering 2 high cost ninjas nearly every turn. Another option is to make him real bad in melee (as in 1 dice melee, 3 or 4 wounds and losing push attack) so that as soon as he is out of position he dies to anything that looks at him funny.

(I don't play KKZ, but I know from experience with Akari that an extra action with a high cost model can really change the game. And for me right now he looks to much like an 6 point cost to get 2 extra actions for 2 ninja with little drawback).
