Jumo dojo

Hello everyone! New player here!

I'm just getting started with Bushido (haven't even received my first order of miniatures in the post yet!!) but as an active wargamers and terrain builder I wanted to get started on a new gaming board.

I have the entire Silvermoon faction heading my way. It was all the big jumo guys that drew me to this faction and I thought it would be great to make a Jumo Dojo/Ring themed board for them.

To that effect I don't know much about the lore of the game yet and was hoping someone of you nice people on the forum could offer ideas or point me in the direction of examples of what a Jumo ring might look like on the Isles.

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks!

I guess Jumo is RL Sumo, so a big circular field should be the starting point. As both Jungle living Butos and Humans practise it there´s a lot of leeway to create something unque.

Say a city based one with amphitheatre look, a ring at the center of the board with stairs up at the sides. You could have small betting stalls as scatter terrain, water barrrels and refreshments. As STS are into animal fighting you could put a cage or a dungeon hole with bars there too.

I don´t think there´s a illustration of a Jumo ring, but there´s one for the sword fighting contest finale between the Wolf Clan guy and Dragon I think.

Thanks!

The animal fighting aspect is not something I had considered but will definitely play with.

I think I will use a traditional sumo style raised platform as a center piece with some elevated seating/ planked catwalks as well as the stalls you mentioned. I've started sketching out some ideas and I'm leaning towards something of a dockside warehouse converted into an illegal gambling operation.

As soon as I figure out how to post photos I'll start a build thread!

A warehouse turned into a makeshift fighting arena would be pretty sweet and different than other themed boards ive seen. As far as jumo rings, if all else fails just watch Bloodsport! Haha
