Does anyone know if there is a map where you can better locate players?

Howdy

My first post on this forum so greetings to you all.

I have been collecting for around a year now as I enjoy painting the minis. Im now taking the plunge to start gaming with them all.

Anyone else having problems with the podcast not working?

Hope you all have a good Xmas and Santa brings you lots of new minis ;-)

Hi Guys,

Just picked up the game at Salute and super excited about starting on my Bushido journey. I picked up the 7 ninjas from Kage and the limited show ninja. Just started reading the rulebook and the fluff and am mightely impressed so far. Got 3 mates who picked up starter sets from the other factions so got a few people to play.

Live around the Manchester area in the UK so if there are any seasoned veterans aroudn there who want to run me through a few games I would appreciate it. 

Also keen to film some battle reports and Bushido Video logs on my YouTube channel so let me know if you guys would be up for seeing some Bushido content as there seems to be relatively little around on the tinterwebs at present. Anyone out for now.

Cheers.

Howdie All :)

New Player in Sydney, Australia. Jumping into Silvermoon with both feet (as is my want :P ). Like to have all options to explore and mix and match to keep my gaming. 'Optimising' a list and running it ad nauseum isn't my kinda thing.

Would probably consider myself a Collector -> Gamer -> Painter... in that order which is necessarily how it should go :P . But I have been taking steps just recently to reverse that flow and paint the mountain of backlog. :)

I will admit I have been eyeing off the awesome models on this site for years. And being offered a great deal on some Silvermoons (my preferred faction) got to finally buy in.

I have started a painting log in the Silvermoon forum. And now time to dive into some of the thread archives to read up what people are doing in this game. Gaming may be a while as it seems few and far between in Sydney atm.

Cheers :)

Hello,

I'm in Sittingbourne, Kent and I've been wargaming for 20+ years and have always been a sucker for small skirmish games.

I had a demo at the Broadside wargames show a couple of years ago but haven't got round to starting yet.

I've been looking for a new game (been playing Guild Ball pretty much exclusively for the past year) and have decided that Bushdo is the way to go. A couple in my local club are also interested , so we'll see how it goes.

Unsure what faction currently, but thinking Cult of Yurei or Silvermoon Syndicate.

Welcome to a great game guys :) Factions are quite different, so expect a new experience everytime you try or meet something.

I am Sean from Sacramento, California in the USA.  I study samurai swordsmanship and just found the rulebook to Bushido last week.  Put in orders for a few clans and I am unsure as to whom I will start.  I am also excited about building my own terrain.  I am hoping to find local players first, but still look forward to chatting with you all.

HI, just thought I'd say a quick hello as I've been lurking around here for a while now. Currently painting up my Ito Clan and helping my son with his Cult of Yurei... although we haven't actually had a game yet...

I've been posting a few shots of our (very steady) progress here:

https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/wm8QgB

I'm really enjoying painting the miniatures up and love the aesthetic anyway, and the new miniatures really seem to be improving with every release (not that they weren't great to begin with!). I hope there's an Ito release as cool as Kento Takashi in the works!

Hi I'm Andy, im from Ramsgate in Kent, England. 

i've been dying to get into Bushido ever since I saw Mizuchi many years ago when I was looking to put together a Nippon army for WFB (a project that never got off the ground!) fast forward a few years and a retailer was offering Bushido minis with 60% off for a Black Friday event last year - sold! I'll take a load of Temple figs off your hands, thank you.  Forward on a bit more and Salute 2016, I arrive with a Prefecture shopping list in hand, speak to the guys on the stand (they were brilliant!) played a demo and walked away with a shed load of minis.

i love the look and feel of the game, am yet to play a competitive game as I've been deliberately waiting until I paint up a couple of factions, a board and terrain/objectives in order to keep motivation going. The tactic is working as I'm practically salivating at getting started. Ive collected warbands based on the look of the models rather than synergy or power but will streamline them when I start playing although to be fair I'm more of an aesthetic player rather than a seriously competitive one.

I'm running a gaming blog called "da Gobbo's Grotto" which is about all the game systems I currently play but at the moment seems to be almost exclusively Bushido ;-) the link below is the first time I start pulling together my Bushido project.

Hi everyone I heard about the game from the WCWW podcast around April but didn't pick up any models till recently when a buddy of mine showed interest in the game. I used to play the L5R card game when I was younger and Bushido kind of gives me the same vibe. I started out picking up the Cult and Kage then last week at Gencon picked up the Jung. If anyone is located around central Illinois in the US hit me up and we can play some games!

Hey there, my name is Jordan, but my friends call me Panda. I'm in the USA. I play Bushido with my dad and brother, and we love to see GCT at GenCon every year!
I main Cult, my dad has Silver moon, and my brother uses boring old Ryu. It's hard to get any matches stateside because of the size of the country and the number of players, but I always want to help push the game!

Welcome Quwaz. I'm in the USA too. And yes it's hard to find players locally. Luckily, 3 people is enough to enjoy the game, more so in a campaign style set up where there is a fluff reason to be fighting the same people. Add 1 more player and you'll be better off than most groups. Good luck out there.

But that is England. You are like 1-2 hours from anywhere, right? Even if there is no players in that city you just drive to the next one a couple times a week to play. There must be more in London at least. The closest gaming store near me is 40 minutes, and it's closing down soon.

Dude

it takes 9 hours to get to Blackpool from where I live, 2 hours to London and at least an hour to the nearest store with reg Bushido games. England's a little bigger than you think :-)

sucks that your games stores closing though man. At least your family play though

Hi guys,

 

I just wanted to say hello. My name is Michael and I´m from Kaiserslautern, Germany. I´m interested in starting Bushido with the lovely Ninja faction. Maybe you can help me on my way to become a new Bushido player.

 

Cheers,

Michael

Hi I'm Ed,

I'm from just outside of St. Augustine, Florida.

I saw the game on "Guerilla Miniature Games" YouTube channel and loved it.

Going with Temple of Ro-Kan, after seeing Master Ekusa on the Turtle I was committed.

I have the miniatures in route so I hope to play some time soon.

All the best & Happy Nrw Year.

Welcome !

I do love "Guerilla Miniature Games" it's a great channel. I have to say Master Ekusa and his turtle got a lot of ppl into this game ;)

I'd advise you to be carefull on your first games, because they made many mistakes on the video I watched. Feel free to ask on the forum if you need anything, the Ret and other ppl are really helpfull.

Thank You for the Welcome.

I'll do that, Forum be prepared.

I've noticed Ash make a few mistakes, but he is entertaining. I read through the download of the rules before watching & thought, "That's not right." But wasn't sure if I was remembering it right myself.

Strangest thing I noticed, on the locater there is another player on the other side of town from me. What are the odds of that happening?

Mater Ekusa was my tipping point to buying in. There were two Galopogose Turtles in my home town when I was in my teens & before. I have no idea how long they'd been around as they are so long lived. I thought they were the coolist thing ever as a little kid. I got to ride on one when I was 4 or 5. So you see my attraction to the Temple of Ro-Kan. I hope I spelled all of these correctly?

Thanks again Wogshrog for the welcome.

Ed, you've bought into my favourite faction and for such an excellent reason! Mine was for the Guardian (massive silverback) and Kitsune, plus Temple is such a fun faction with Monks and Animals aplenty. 

Enjoy

Da Gobbo,

Hard to resist. I bought a bunch of the minis & eagerly await their arrival. The animal side of the faction has it's appeal. I used to ages ago play Clan War, also Katana more a skirmish scale.

I enjoyed playing the Ikko Ikki Warrior Monks. But the years have passed & my eyes aren't what they once were. I just want them to look respectable so I'll be taking my time.

Thanks for the Welcome.

Hi Ret-darkframboisier,

Thanks for the Welcome.

I already have my eye on a couple of other factions. First I want to paint & play Temple. No doubt I'll want to acquire a second faction around summer or earliy fall. The problem, of course, is choosing just one.

I've concidered picking up a starter for each of the other factions & slowly growing one of them, while acquiring the full Temple faction at the same time. Decisions, decisions.

Thanks again to everyone for the Warm Welcome.

My name is Kyle.  I live in Wyoming in the USA which is about the middle of nowhere.  Have played 40k for 25 years now also dabbled in war machine malifaux infinity and recent took up bolt action.  Then I saw Bushido and instantly fell in love.  within a month of deciding to buy minis and playing the game my gaming club now has 6 active players.  I play Temple and Kage and want to expand into Prefecture or Pirates.

Hi,

My name is Julian and I just stumbled onto this game at Adepticon this past weekend.  Stopped for a demo and picked up the ito and Prefecture starters... then I came back for the ninjas... then the Jung... and now I have a bunch of terrain ordered.  I don't think there's a big scene for this back in Los Angeles so I'll just have to try and get my group to play.

Have fun and I am sure if you persist at demoing the game you will get more than enough to play regularly at your club.

Hello. My 2 friends and I also picked up some starter packs this last weekend at Adepticon. The booth was quite popular so I'm hoping that there will be some other new players in the Chicago-land area as well.
