A couple questions about the faction

I al about to order my first set of Bushido minis but I want to make some sort of informed decision about my purchases.
I have a couple of question for you fine folks of this forum:

First question I don't know what models are allowed in a lords of izu list, I know the card packs are needed but lacking a physical store nearby I will be able to read them only after having ordered then with the minis.

I saw from the app that there are a couple of alternate profile cards:
Ito samurai and ito ancestor, what minis should I purchase to play them?
Are they worth the rice cost?

Finally are the ashigarus useful? Are they playable in lords of izu? I really really like their sculpts.

Any answer to these questions would be really appreciated :)

Thabk you in advance for your time

Lords of Izu is the "we're totally normal people" theme for the Ito Clan.

You can take just about everyone with human head, arms, body, and legs.  Anything that's part snake is a no-no.

The Ito Samurai uses Satoshi's model by default but some people use Eeji from Prefecture instead since Satoshi's spear sticks out obnoxiously far out of his base.

Ashigaru and samurai are pretty much all you can run in Lords of Izu (plus those odd normal humans in the Temple of Orochi - Kyou, Sakura, Satsuki etc).  So ashigaru are pretty vital to the theme.

Thank you very much for the answers, really helpful, for the ancestor should I use the prefecture model?

thanks again! i want a faction with a high percentage of samurais and cool sculpts, I was looking at Ryu too but the snake people aren't bad at all (Mizuki is beautiful) and Ito seems to have better sculpts all over. knowing that there are even more samurais than what it seemed at first glance is really nice.
