Hi All.

My name's Siobhan, and my husband and I found Bushido the other day (via Cool Mini or Not).  I love Japanese history, in particular military history (Oda Nobunaga is one of my favourite historical people), so  we couldn't resist.

I have got the Ito starter set, and he's picked up the Prefecture starter set, and we're currently assembling and painting out models.  Can't wait to start playing.

We've already roped my brother-in-law in too, and have bought him the Cult starter set for his birthday. smiley

I've always preferred painting, but I prefer small skirmish games when I play, so I'm expecting it to be 50-50 with this.

I'm from the UK, currently near Reading.

Hi there.
Just got back from Gothcon XXXVII (Swedens largest convention) where me and my buddys found and got totally hooked on Bushido.

Got to take the chance to yet again thank henrix for his exellent demoing and I look forward to getting some paint on my new Ito so I can get playing.

Hi all!

My name is Robert and I was at GothCon XXXVII and spent more or less the entire convention playing or talking about Bushido. Henrix and Yinkin did a very good job demoing a very interesting and nice game.

Impressions of the game thus far is: very good looking models, interesting and fast paced mechanics and most importantly very pleasant company around the gaming tables.

 

Go Dragon Clan!

Hi, Orko and Dr.Kaos! Nice to see you here!

I truly wish I could put faces to your names, but I have a lot of faces and snippets of names in my head from the con, so I cannot tell. blush

And, frankly, we had such a luck in that almost all people trying the game out were so nice and interested that doesnt really help! laugh

 

Where in our long country do you live? That probably helps me remember!

We both live in Uppsala (flatmates actually) and we were the two last to leave while you were packing up. If it helps we were the ones who came up with the leapfrogging bakemono (that was me) and the perpetually ordering ashigaru theory (that was dr kaos).

Välkomna! Nice that you've found these forums, they're a great and friendly place for questions and chit-chat!

And I hope that we'll meet up and play soon! Gothcon was great, but with all the lovely interested people neither me nor Henrix really got a chance to play ourselves! :)

Ah, yes, now I know! Yinkin also helped.

And of course I remember the leapfrogging bakamono (which works, in theory), and the peretually ordering ashigaru (which would not work even if the miniatures had the abilities you thought they had*)!

Welcome to Orko and Dr Kaos, Henrix really is an unstoppable recruitment force;) hope you enjoy the community and the game! 

@countess- nice to see more UK gamers, you know Cardiff is only a few hours down the M4 from reading, and we have 'Jwardiff 2013' a very friendly entry level tournament on the first of June?;)

Thank you, Greeny! I only do it for fun. And out of pure egoism. I want nice people to game with!

And welcome, Countess! I failed to say that, my brain having some sort of postconvention syndrome.

Im also one of the GothCon XXXVII converts and are from the same "gang" as Orko and DrKaos.

The game seems excellent and the only problem is deciding what faction to start with.

As Orko and Dr.Kaos said it, Hendrix and  Yinkin did a great job of hooking alot of new people. I'm new to this forum becuse of them. Started with Temple of Ro-Kan and bought almost all of their models. My favorite one so far is Aiko and her Guardian wich i hade some realy good time with playing with against friend Fanni.

I live in Gothenburg - Sweden so if anyone would like a game or two just look me up!

Hi all. Like all other recent Swedes, I was also introduced to the game with the great help of Ret-Henrix and Yinkin. Also situated in Gothenburg.

Hello;

I'm old manfang part of agaming club out of nova scotia Canada. Game looks very interesting and we are seeing if it fits us for another game other then warmachine/hordes. Art work is impressive.

Welcome, oldmanfang!

I always suggest downloading the rules and have a go at it, if you have a hard time convincing your fellows.

(And don't forget to play a scenario that isn't just 'let us bash each other to bits', as the stats are balance for scenarios.)

I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Hi! Andreas is the name, and as all the other recent Swedes I got into the game thanks to Henrix at Gothcon.  

Situated in South of Sweden in the City of Lund. Where me and another two  in my gaming group is gathering our forces, hopefully the rest of the club will join in.

Greeny, I'm not certain what happened at GothCon, but it was loads of fun!

No, no, that would be insufferable! Just think what would happen if I had to talk to myself all the time - I'd never have any intelligent discussions.

Hi, my name is Mattias. I was introduced to the game by silversixx and Ret-Henrix. After checking out the rules and noticing how similar it was to the giant game of yore, Confrontation, I knew I had to try it. I did and loved it!

Chojin (Richard) and his warring states Prefecture reporting in. I’m formally a GW collector/modeller, re-enactor and DnD player. Found out about the game through Countess (we are married) while she was looking for oriental themed games and something that is a little more portable to play.

The is a good chance I will be off to the modelling and painting forum in the not too distant future as I have already broken my first promise, no new figures until the starter pack is finished. So I am now sat in front of the full unfinished faction, 1 unfinished shrine, 3 unfinished idols, 6 unfinished foam board houses, 48 inches of unfinished fences, barriers, shields and bamboo and have Just started 6 scratch built trees as well...

One day I will finish something.

Greetings All. My name is Tim, I am in Connecticut USA and I have a question:

How the bleep did this game slip under my radar!!??   smiley

Oh well, at least I'm here now.

I saw an announcement for Wave 12 on TMP the other day and proceeded to dive down the rabbithole. I've ordered two starter sets (Ro-Kan and Ito Clan) downloaded the rules, cards and tokens. (I found out from the Forum that the cards are out of date so I downloaded the card images that are displayed with the Starter Sets in the Store.) I am now looking for suitable terrain.

I've done an initial reading of the rules (it looks like it will take several reading to get clear understanding of most of it) and I like them.  The melee combat rules remind me of Confrontation, another game I like.

Thanks for the info.

I plan on printing out larger versions of the cards anyway. The larger cards will stay on the table, beside the game board, and be used for holding various tokens (ki, poison, wounds, etc.) that apply to that character. The smaller "offical" cards are for holding in your hand and referencing without disturbing the above tokens.

Hi, Chojin & Tim!

The game has inherited a lot of good stuff from Confrontation, Tim, and added even more. That's one of the things that draw me in as well! (Ekusa the turtle guy also helped wink)

As to your first question; I have no answer. But if you have any others we'd like to help you.

Hi Both, like the big card idea, very clever! Chojin- I look forward to seeing your stuff, I'm more hobby based myself and prefer modelling and painting, (and making stupid terrain) but bushido is the only rules at the moment that can drag me out of my hobby corner for a quick game:)

   Hey there people! 

   I recently found Bushido while looking for a skirmish level minis game, been a warhammer player for about 10 years.  Love the setting but I'm curious of the game play.  I've downloaded the rules and read through them a few times.  How does it "compare" to malifaux?  I've not played that either so I'm looking for general info, depth of play, tactics, pros and cons of each type of stuff.  My gaming group love the models but want the gameplay to measure up to the models standards. Any help for a ronin wandering the skirmish level landscape?

hi minoa, welcome to the forums, 

gotta type fast as im going out but- Bushido gameplay is simple to learn but very complex tactically, how you play the game matters far more than your army selection so tactics do mean something, Malifaux is more aboout synergy, the list you take can win or lose a game before a card is drawn, so whichever of those float your boat really! I love bushido, the your action/my action and 2 actions pre model really make every single game different, and the combat system is easily the best system ive ever seen.

I can second Greeny's oppinion about the best miniature skirmish game available, for me it is the most balanced and quick to learn game I have played since 18 years of wargaming. I also learnt that this game is very tactical, which is a good thing for me, it also helps that this setting is my favorite :P

Hi there. Actually I'm neither playing Bushido nor am I experienced in this forum but I've painted a lot of Savage Wave Monsters (and it was a lot of work but I like the result) for my boyfriend as I know he will love them and this game for his birthday. I'll plan driving home now and get some pictures to show them to you for some feedback. Could I post them here in the forum or isn't this the way to go as I'm not an active member here but would really like the feedback..

Thank s and greetings ,
Yellow

Hi Yellowna, obviously your other post means you haven't got much to show at the moment (bad times, hope you pick up some more!) but welcome to the forums anyway:) the modelling and painting section is where you'll be able to put those photo's up, and if you enjoy painting check out Duck21 or Orochi's painting posts for some inspiration:)

Greetings all,

My name is Mark and I am a long time miniature gamer (20+ years) located in NW ohio.  I have been bitten hard by the Bushido bug and am working hard on a couple Bushido demo boards and painting my first two crews.  I am also a podcaster, having two gaming oriented podcasts in addition to being cohost on the Adepticon podcast.  And I am one of the newest retainers!  Looking forward to helping grow the community in my own way!

Howdo Folks!

My name is Jonathan, from the sleepy village of Ingleton in the North West of England.

I've been keeping an eye on Bushido for a while now- with the release of the new book I've finally taken the plunge and will be attempting to convert the rest of my gaming group to this great-looking game and mini line!

Picked up the Temple starter set for my main Force and am in the process of trying to decide between either Savage Wave or Ito Clan as a second Faction so I can get some demo games going at the club- I will likely be pestering the veteran players out there for advice on this in the very near future, so will apologise now! smiley

Cheers!
